I don't want to go to work today because customers are random and rude and they make me feel insignificant and guilty

My work stress is that I'm ill and can't phone in sick because I'm relyed on too much by both jobs so I just get more ill :/

being mentally ill and also being employed at nearly full time is terrible. i work five to seven hours every day in a high stress environment doing lots of physical labor and it's taking a huge toll on my physical and mental health. at the same time, though, i would be worse off if i were unemployed. it feels like i just can't win.

Every day I set the goal of making it through work without crying. I am working a lot of overtime, which increases my anxiety. I am so tired and so sad the anxiety prevented me from entering into the Christmas spirit.

I can't find a job. I'm terrified of getting one. The last job I worked at, I was a waitress. I could never remember which orders went where, was tense with the customers when I was overwhelmed, and ended up being demoted to "coffee girl", and then finally just fired. Ever since, the thought of dealing with customers or a fast paced environment just makes me freeze up like a rabbit, but there's only so many jobs where I live. It's either "be bored to death", or "dry heave every day b/c stress".

I quit my job because of terrible management and I didn't feel safe there. I have the support of my friends but now I'm worrying about where the next paycheck is gonna come from..

I never get any praise at work and it's really getting me down. I work so hard and never get any recognition for it. Any time my supervisor comments on my work it's just to tell me I need to get more done faster even though I'm working as fast as I can. They know about my stress and anxiety and have told me to ask for their help if I need it, but they dismiss it when I do.

Anyone know how to keep your spirits up while job hunting? My current job is a dead end, but applying for new ones always gets me down, especially when they don't reply back to me

I recently got made redundant from a small part time till job I had. Man, the customers where incredibly rude. I think I must have got verbally abused everyday. People who work in retail, especially on the till need a break. I wish people where kinder, we're working a low minimum wage like almost everyone else and they act like they have some massive privilege. Sigh.

Hate not being able to enjoy a long weekend away from work. There is something I make a mistake on while I was there, and of course I didnt realize it until i got home, and then I know I will have to worry about it until Monday. On the other hand, I always feel paranoid my boss is going to throw a fit about something and I'm going to get fired. I thought I would have learned by now that most of the time things will never work out the way you think, but these days my anxiety is hard to ignore.

my work stress is different to most of the others on here. I can't seem to find a job, 3 years unemployed and only 2 interviews in that time, neither successful. I regret stuffing up my high school life because now I feel like my future is going to be a disappointment to me and my family. I'm nearly 20 years old and still living at home unemployed. All I want to do is help my mother, and no one wants to give me a chance.

I'm new at my job, and I keep on screwing up. I know I need to bounce back, but I don't know where to begin. My teammates are not as encouraging, and my motivation has gotten so low.

I'm new on the job and it is stressful making a good first impression. I'm a hard-worker and love to take charge, but can get easily overwhelmed if everything doesn't fall into place perfectly. :/

I got a bad evaluation at work. Most of the things I was marked down for were out of my control (how the computer room was set up). I have spent most of the winter break coming up with proof with pictures. I'm think about going into a new profession due to this evaluation. I have never in 15 years received such a horrible evaluation from a Principal. It's hard to say how much I should fight back on things that are incorrect. If I don't say anything I feel like I am agreeing.

I feel so stressed sometimes when working for other people😥. Making money is stressful for me, I enjoy my work. But the battle with the conscience about the ethics of work, makes me very stressed out. I quit my job. Guess it's a temporary relief 🌈⛅️🌊. Till I get stressed out how to make money again .

Been working for my mom since I was 12. And I don't even like my job because I get to talk to a lot of people and some of them abuse me. An old man almost tried to kiss me! I feel so uncomfortable in my job but my mom said that I have to help her through these things because she's a widow.

I've worked so hard at my job where I've been there for over a year and a half. but they recently promoted someone else instead. should I find another job? cuz apparently my hard work is only noticed by those who see it and not by my boss who is in an office all day.

I'm working a nightshift in tonight, I work in a 24 hour petrol start ion which is close to the pubs in my town, I'm on my own on my whole shift and drunks and people off their face arnt nice to me and say horrible things and I'm panicking incase they will kick up a fuss. I just want to go to work do what I got to and then leave without horrible and rude drunken idiots making me feel worse about myself than I already do. I also have a fear of drunks and outside seems horrible at the moment.

I was promoted to a new position 3 months ago, after being a top proformer for several years in a different role. I'm having trouble communicating with new my manager and as a result am not picking up the training I'm being given and I feel unqualified and overwhelmed. I've always been the best at my job and now I can't seem do anything right. It's really bothering me and I can't seem to separate myself from that anxiety.
