I called out of work today for a mental health day. Now my daughter and I are taking a mini road trip. 👩👧💜

I feel like I can't live up to the expectations at work. It's hard to push myself because I'm scared to be criticized and get upset. I constantly worry people are judging me or will talk about me if I messed up. I feel like I'm made to feel stupid or rubbish if I make a mistake. I also feeling like I'm falling behind because of my anxiety whilst everyone is excelling and becoming successful. Anyone else feel like this?

I'll be having a really good day and then I'll think about things I got to do I work on Monday and my stomach will turn at the thought of it and I can't get my mind off it :(

I think I finally know what I want to do with my life. I now have the courage to admit that my work isn't what I want to do for the rest of my life, regardless of my degree and my potentialities, and that I have endless possibilities to change. For the first time in my life, I realise that I have plenty of time. I am the one in charge of my own life. Not everyone else.

Sometimes I get to work early and find it nice to just sit in my car pumping myself up, telling myself I can do this!

Not knowing what to expect returning to work after this 4/5 days off is already stressfull. I wish a good return to all!

My boss makes me feel like nothing I do is ever enough. It makes me want to quit everyday even though I love my job and I know that I'm doing well, he just doesn't see it. It's like he's waiting for me to fail and it's beyond stressful.

My situation at work is a little tricky. Some days I'm thankful for my for my job. It provides a sense of normalisy, because Outside of work I've isolated myself so much. Then there are some days I don't want to be bothered, and the thought of going to work brings me to tears.

It's only been 2 days back in the office and I am already feeling anxious. I feel rather lame that I am already in high anxiety despite having not been at work for about a week but I can't seem to shake off the constant thoughts in my head when I'm off work and at home.

I want to give up. I want to give up and for everything to turn out OK and no one to be mad at me. To take the easy way out, once again. But there are consequences, and if I gave up it'll make other people's lives harder. I just need to make it one more month. I've made it 11 months, what's one more?

I'm scared of tomorrow because I have to go to work. And I know that I didn't do anything wrong but still I'm so insecure that I keep thinking that MAYBE I did the things not right

I got the job I interviewed for and I'm so excited. I was also able to quit my job that had caused most of my stress because of a store manger who created a poor work invroment.

been up for hours thinking about my responsibilities at work tomorrow. i'm gonna get thrown straight into something i personally have never done before all by myself. i'm so nervous that i'm gonna screw it all up and get in trouble or even get fired. i know it's just stress talking, but the fear is still really real. not to mention i have the beginnings of a stress-induced migraine. lovely.

I cried all day at work today from being so stressed out. I take my job seriously and I want to do well. There is a lot going on and I'm having trouble managing myself.

I've been signed off work for a week for anxiety but all I can feel is guilt and embarrassment that someone else will have to cover my work. It's a lose-lose situation.

I was hired at a new job which I am grateful for & start training tomorrow. But all day I have had horrible anxiety and am sick with worry that I'll work for terrible managers or I'll not be good at my job. I know the thoughts are irrational but I just can't seem to stop thinking about the anxiety and keep getting upset. Any tips?

I still haven't found a job since I graduated. It's not like I tried very hard, since I've been dealing with depression since I moved to the west coast. My husband doesn't understand that and keep pressuring me to find a job. The pressure the lack of money causes my depression just to worsen, thus I don't feel encouraged to work hard in finding a job.
