Stress at Work

I have a bundle of emotions. Im beyond nervous and anxious but excited in a way. I start my CAREER tomorrow. 😱 no more little jobs, it's the real deal. I will be working at a European salon doing hair for clientele as well as runway shows. I'm a very shy insecure person entering the beauty industry with people who naturally feel so highly of themselves. I hope I make a good impression. πŸ˜–πŸ˜–

Have to head back into work tomorrow where I will most likely be berated for a mistake I made a week ago. My anxiety is at a 12/10 and it hasn't been this bad in two years.

Every Sunday I get anxious for the week. I never know if the week will go as planned and I'm nervous that I'll have to spend so much time after hours working on things. The stress that comes along with my job doesn't help my depression and anxiety. If I have a bad day at work, it usually carries over for the rest of the day. A lot of days I dread about changing careers because it can be too much.

Tomorrow is my first day back after thanksgiving break, and although I've reflected a lot on my feelings and anxiety during the break and gotten into a somewhat more positive headspace, I feel like it'll all be thrown away tomorrow. I'm constantly comparing myself to others, worrying I'll mess things up for my kids (I'm a teacher), or that I'll lose my job. I need to believe in myself and accept that who I am is enough.

I hate not standing up for myself. And I hate smiling for people who barely acknowledge my existence. I exist when I'm not telling you about product.

I am such a creative individual and I miss the small privilege of being able to dress up in the morning and just FEEL GRAND, to step out in something more than just an all black food service uniform! I feel like a sheep in this thing.

Writing code while anxious with a migraine is near impossible.

I start a new job tomorrow and am terrified about it. So much so I am having headaches and am so depressed. What if I can't live up to the expectations of this new place? What if they think I don't know what I'm doing? The fear itself is so hurtful

Constant anxiety about work. Going on too long. Ruining my free time cos constantly anxious that things are going to go wrong in work. Large global entity so I'm just a number. Not feeling confident enough to move jobs, proving myself all over again and also nearly 50. All scary. Got to live in the now, and care less about work

I am feeling incredibly sick of being taken advantage of at work and treated like I'm beneath everyone else just because I'm an administrative assistant. I can usually just let things go and not bother me but sometimes they really get to me. I am feeling angry right now and powerless and stuck. I've been at this job over 10 years and as much as I want to leave I am terrified to. I don't know what to do anymore.

This is my very first job and I already want to quit after 2 weeks. It's not because anyone is rude, but because the long hours trigger my anxiety and is making me depressed. My home is my safe spot and if I'm out of the house alone for too long then I get anxiety attacks. Should I quit this job??? Advice please!!

I'm a bus girl in a restaurant that works with creepy, touchy bus boys. I'm not much of an assertive person either so I don't say much when they do something that bothers me. I want to change that

In fast food the customer is very rarely right and yet we still take the fall for their mistakes

I have a manager who just had no clue how to manage employees. She is so passive aggressive, demands jobs to be done within seconds of receiving them and It makes me feel so small. Feels like she watching every move I make, waiting for me to make a mistake. Very very fustrating. Trying to find the confidence to leave but very anxious about it.

I had to leave my old job due to it causing me extreme anxiety. I have to find a new job fast so I can pay the bills but the pressure is just making me more anxious. I don't really know what to do.

I'm out of school and got a job working for a Laboratory. Within a week I made a mistake that is now looking like it will cost me my job within the next few weeks. I made a mistake due to me going too fast, not paying attention, and constantly trying to compare myself to others to the point that now I am in a position in which I feel inferior to everyone in the workplace. I try my hardest and I know that I can do better since I learned from this experience. But constant fear impedes my work.

Working with a bunch of lazy CNA's that put a lot on me because I work hard and they do enough to get by. Plus when my clients are rowdy and combative can be very stressful and challenging.

I work in a job that requires you to be a team and I always feel like the the one left out of the team. It's incredibly stressful and makes me feel like an outcast by my coworkers. I don't know how to remedy this. I wish it didn't bother me like it does but I can't help it much. It's a stressful and demanding job as it is so this really doesn't help.

No matter how hard you try in my work, it never gets noticed, and that hurts.

Working an 8am-8pm shift and at 7.30 im 'asked' to join a ward round that has absolutely nothing to do with me (im covering ueology and vascular, this was colorectal) because their house officer is too busy ie they've already worn him to a thread and want to move on to me! Surgeon then has me scurrying about and tells me off for writing too slowly! I smiled my sweetest smile. Now I feel guilty for leaving before (their) handover!

I dread going into work so much sometimes that it makes me sick to my stomach. I'm always paranoid of being scolded for whatever reason, even though I try my best. Am I really just a bad employee?

I am a med student who has always had anxiety issues but much worse since starting clinical rotations. About to go in to work now, really really anxious.
