I had a small panic attack this week at work. I actually started to cry and had to leave early... Tomorrow is my first day back since. I'm very nervous and anxious. I'm so afraid it'll happen again.

My first day of work was today. Took a lot of courage for me to put myself out there since I'm so nervous around people. So despite today being stressful, I'm quiet proud of myself.

I am feeling very overwhelmed to the point that my happiness is not the same

I have started a grievance for bullying and harassment . Just waiting now for it all to kick off. Scared but has to be done.

There's a lot of people at my workplace and everyone is friends with each other but I dont know if it's because I don't talk much but no one talks to me. Even when I say 'hi' I usually get no answer. It makes me kinda sad because sometimes I hear conversations and I want to be part of them but I feel out of place to join them. Any advice?

I hate my job and I really want to find a new one. The problem is I'm afraid that getting a new job will be too stressful for me right now. I've been battling with panic disorder, mild depression, and anxiety for almost a year now. I feel lucky that I have a job that is understanding enough to be somewhat flexible when I have a particularly bad day. I'm afraid to lose that and that my next job may not be as understanding and then I'll be unemployed. Anyone have any advice?

I've been working so hard this year despite everything I'm dealing with and I really hope it pays off and I get my raise. I also have been waiting for a position to open up and apply for within the company so I hope luck comes my way and I can get that in the new year.

today when I got to work, a song came on that I hadn't heard in a while. it wasn't anything significant ,but I started to cry. I had to run to the hostess stand in the front to get away, because I was scared people would see what a wreck I am. I didn't want my new coworkers to see me cry

Today I tried to talk to my boss about my coworkers not doing their job. When they don't it it all falls on me and I end up picking up the slack. I'm so burnt out on my job as it is. He just stood there smiling at me and nodding his head like I'm an idiot. I'm not an idiot. Our jobs are very important. He just doesn't get it. Anytime I try to tell him something he just brushes it off. Doesn't matter I'm doing twice as much work and burnt out. I can't wait to work for somebody else.

Been a rough month, stress is building up and I'm fine at work, as soon as I'm off though, I breakdown. Seen too much tragedies lately and they are starting to take over my mind. I'm in the fire service and try to hide my anxieties to the guys on my shift. Realized I'm self medicating with booze a little too much and cut back recently. I feel like I'm normal on the outside but a broken man on the inside. I just want to feel normal

Today they took away my desk, rearranged my office, and now I have to share it with 7 other people (2 people at each tiny desk). There's no room to work or move and I can't focus with others around and in my space. They didn't even ask just did it. I got no work done today cause I was so anxious about the changes. I dread going back to work tomorrow because I know I won't be able to work in the awful new office. I feel like they just walked all over me and I can't deal with it right now. Help me

Don't dwell over past mistakes. To treat your work as a reflection on you as a person is a grave fallacy in every sense and stops you from progression.

I have a presentation in an hour... I'm feeling very anxious.

Why is it I always start something and never finish it. Whether it's me trying to think positively, stop smoking, losing weight, saving money.. It's terrible I feel like I can't function sometimes all because of the fact a little voice in my head is making me fall back into my comfort zones that I was once in before.. How can I break this off and save my self the stress and frustration for good?

I find it hard to want to go to work anymore. Even just thinking about it stresses me out beyond belief. I love my profession, but not the environment I'm in. Unfortunately I'm stuck here for a while until I can start my therapy program. I'm always looking for excuses to call in sick because I detest it so much. I just want relief from this stress

So I've started a new job at a cafe, I work at the cashier. I have really bad anxiety and I'm always shaking at work. I'm always nervous during the day and I get orders wrong. Because their is only two people (including myself) working there it can get really busy like a wave of people come in and I get really overwhelmed. Does anyone have any advice?

My manager told me that the director of our store isn't liking how I work. I'm afraid they're going to cut my hours or fire me. I work my ass off for them and I get nothing but crap in return.

In August I found out my long term boyfriend cheated and the stress and anxiety has really effected my grades. All of my focus was on him instead of school and now I'm really suffering in school grade wise. I missed a lot of school because I was too depressed and anxious to step out of my room. I hate this. I feel like I'm losing control.

I'm new to working at home. I was working in an office with lots of friends until about a year ago. I'm very lonely and this really stresses me out. My family is not that supportive, because they feel I have the perfect job. My husband is a truck driver that comes home every night and liked being alone all the time. I have 2 teens that live with me and a granddaughter, but they all are in their own worlds all the time. So even after I'm not working, I feel no one have time for me.

Any other english teachers out there? How do you manage the work load plus the grading plus all the extracurricular stuff you are asked to do? I am so stressed all the time trying to juggle it all at once and so I would love some advice.

Going to work is seriously my biggest trigger by far. I get all sweaty and my heart starts to race right before I walk in. What if people are mad at me about something the day before? What if I get so busy and overwhelmed. It scares me to death. I've been at the same place for over a year now and I still have a panic attack every day before I go in

Sometimes I don't know what I want.... I like my job, it is interesting, I learn many things. But my boss is always getting on my nerves expecting me to do his job and making decisions instead of him. Sometimes we have scandals... I might even cry. At this point I start to think I want to leave, to get married and have a family and be a housewife so that I would never feel that kind of pressure any more. But then I think that it wouldn't solve anything.
