Stress at Work

I feel like I do all the work and never get any credit for it. Just a simple thank you would be nice once in a while.

I see a lot of posts where people are stressed about what their boss/manager thinks. As a manager, I am even more worried about what my team thinks of me. I have a good connection with my people, but my insecurity still gets the best of me and I overthink things.

Every time I have to go to work I contemplate quitting because of my anxiety.. I start to feel sick a few hours before

I hate office politics! If I'm more qualified for a role, I should get it, not the person who has been here half as long, with less knowledge but chooses to kiss management ass. So frustrating.

It annoys me when some adults like to tell me they have been working since they were 15 and that I am just a kid who isn't hard working. Well I started working since 15 and it's been pretty difficult balancing school/work/a relationship/ and my mental health!!!

I have such bad anxiety and depression that whenever I even think of having to leave to go to work I feel like I might have a panic attack. How do you deal with keeping a job when you literally can't even bring yourself to leave the house?

Quitting your job in order to feel better about yourself and try to move on with your life.

It sure is lonely here at the top. I feel that everyone not only hates every decision I make, but secretly hates me as a person too. Today I was disrespected again from a coworker I used to call my best friend before I was promoted. I've been nothing but polite and professional with everyone, including some of the worst offenders of whom continue to treat me like garbage out of their probable envy. Sometimes I want to just walk out but then I remind myself that im stronger than that.

Finally, it has happened. I lost my horrible job of a year and a half! And I couldn't be happier. I really want to focus on myself and not be around these shitty ppl.

I've been working at my work for almost 6 months now and I still get anxious before I start even though I have nothing to be worried about but I can't help kt

I get scheduled to do one thing and because others are too irresponsible I have to do something else. I end up having to basically clean up after a team of roughly 10 people by myself. If they can't do the job right in the first place why are they doing it? It doesn't make sense that I have to waste a day of productivity just to make sure other people did their jobs correctly. If you don't want to train people to do a proper job, don't hire them in the first place.

iv had days where I can't face the world and had to call in sick.. I'm attending a meeting at work about this I'm very anxious

I'm the only one on my team (besides a freelancer who isn't always available) who can do my job. I'm always expected to get stuff done yesterday despite getting necessary info late. I've redone so much work because of other people's incompetence. My workload tripled in Nov. I normally hide my stress, but it became visible lately. My coworkers invalidate me feeling stressed, yet most don't work nearly as hard, which frustrates me. All that said, I feel I'm not good enough to get a job elsewhere.

I regret opening up about somethings to people at my work like talking about that I bought a house... This came up bc i was asked what i was doing for new years and i said i am moving... Idk it makes me really anxious like i think i might of offended them or just told them too much. It sounds reAlly silly but i always stress about conversations i have with people later on like i said something rude or dumb

I had an anxiety attack at work the other day and I'm so scared it's going to happen again today.

I'm a teacher. I never used to be stressed about my job. I took a position teaching middle school last year and it sent me in a spiral. I was at my worst last year about this time. I would come home and take a few shots just to make the anxiety go away. I'm still at the same school this year even though I swore to myself last year I wouldn't be back. I'm going to that same dark, anxiety/depression-ridden place I was last year and I'm scared.

I get called in to cover people's shifts because they're "sick" but when I'm sick and try to call in all I get is "I'm sorry but you have to come in" what kind of sh** is that?

We work so hard to please our clients, and on the last day of the year received such astonishingly negative feedback that was out of line and officially made us question our business itself. We started the year on a terrible note and I'm having a hard time shaking this currently ongoing experience.

All my coworkers are great, but every time anyone says anything about something I should have done, I feel like I failed even though they always say that it's okay. Like if I forget to tell someone something and then I'm reminded, I can't help but feel reprimanded in some way. I wish I didn't take everything so personally.

I work so hard at my job and I feel like I get no recognition. Because I'm only a busser, all of the servers feel like they can take advantage of me and I always let them.

My husband keeps telling me to worry about myself, but my office mate drives me nuts. I get in early before everyone else and I start working, when she comes in early she's always watching videos or reading random ish online. She missed an appt Bc she was looking at engagement rings for about 2 hours. She'll take hour long lunches then complain how far behind she is and blah blah. Her and her bf break up and get back together every other day. I feel like a bad person but I can't listen to it 😔
