I'm in college full time but any time someone needs a shift taken, I end up covering it. I'm exhausted and I don't get paid or respected enough. I'm so tired and defeated.

My boss doesn't understand that I can't deal with constant micromanaging. You can't come up to me and tell me I need to do this and this and that and expect me to do it exactly how you want it. I have my own way of working and I can't expect you to like it, but you can't expect me to change everything about my work habits because you think it's chaos when it works for me. Just let me work!

I'm scared to go to work everyday. I dread it. It's ruining my life.

I work in an office. I do a little bit of everyones job. I am underpaid for the amout of work I do. I get pulled in every single direction. Sometimes I don't get all of my daily work done because I've had to stop and do someone elses job. I never have time to breath. I've had to wqlk out a couple of times just to have a break. I'm the person they blame if something goes wrong even if I had nothing to do with it. I get put down alot and they expect me to just brush it off.

I feel on edge all day at work that the next customer that comes in or calls me is going to shout at me

I recently quit a job where I was very unhappy and constantly anxious. I felt that my happiness and mental heath was more important. I feel free. But sometimes I worry about not being able to find another job and I really need one.

I'm so sick of my job. It makes me angry. I feel like I'm unappreciated. And I feel like I'm about to cry all the time.

I thought this was just going to be a temporary job, that I'd just have it until I figured out what I wanted to do next. But I still have no clue what I want to do with my life. I feel so stuck.

I started my first job a few weeks ago and it's one of the hardest things I've ever done. There is so much pressure, I hate being away from home, and I cry everyday. I'm trying to get through it, but I can't handle that this is the rest of my life.

I cried at work today. I had to put my poor kitty to sleep just two days ago and it's hitting me really hard. I'm devastated, I'm heartbroken, I'm in complete despair. With so much down time at work, I couldn't stop thinking about her. And I didn't have the energy to keep my tears in any longer. I lost it.

Why is it when my boss gives me feedback on something I've drafted it feels like what she is actually saying is "I can't believe you couldn't even get this right. You're so stupid"?

I have trouble getting to work. I only work 2 days/week. The night before I have to work I can't sleep. In the morgning I feel exhausted, anxious every now and then I have a panicattack and I can't seem to get out of the door. Once at work I feel pretty normal and day 2 I feel even better. I know I do a good job and I know everythings fine, but every week it's the same. Why? Does anyone feel the same? What helped you?

I'm 24 and I feel like as silly as it is to say, I've already dug a deep hole on how my life will become. I've been working since I was 13 and still haven't seen the fruits of my struggle. My debt is paid off and I have cried almost every night. Sometimes I just want to lay in my bed and not do anything, in hopes that life won't continue. Work used to be just work and now it's become my life, a life I could care less about.

I am a massage therapist, and my clients and employer treat me as if I am a heartless robot to just fix them. I have feelings too, and it's nice to be appreciated for what I do for people, instead of degraded and taken advantage of.

If I'm not twenty minutes early to work I break down and have an anxiety attack in my car which just makes me end up actually being late.
