I feel like my anxiety is keeping me from enjoying my job. I worry about everything and if something doesn't go as planned I go really negative about myself. I most times doubt myself and feel so incompetent. I hate my anxiety.

I work in the education field. I have anxiety and depression but am able to do my job and not let it show when I'm with my students. However I feel like I can't be honest with my coworkers. Everyone seems happy and that's awesome but I just want to be able to make an honest comment without being looked at like I'm crazy. I feel that I should be able to be me in front of my adult peers. Realistically, we aren't all happy all the time. I'm tired of pretending.

Whenever I become unemployed, I almost immediately feel like crap about myself for it. I don't have the confidence to apply somewhere else, and part of the reason (although there are many) is that I think I'm not someone unless I have a job, I'm not good enough, and I feel ashamed. I imagine that people look down on me all the time for it. I don't know if it's ever true, but it shouldn't matter. I want stop letting so many lies in and focus on who I am truly. Hopes, dreams, loves, etc.

Anxiety is in full effect before work as per usual. All I want to do is call in sick and lay in bed. I feel like mentally I can't get myself to go to work and the everlasting feeling has become so draining.

I was recently fired. My stress/anxiety/depression was so debilitating I couldn't work through it. 😢

I like where I work and I like my coworkers, but since I'm still kinda new I'm always self concious that I'm doing something wrong or every time I see my coworkers whispering I always assume they are gossiping about how annoying or awkward I am.

I'm in the process of looking for a new job and feel like I have no skills. I didn't finish college because my social anxiety made it hard to participate in class. I don't know what my options are.

I hate that in this country, there is no work/life balance. Jobs/co-workers expect you to work more than 8 hours in a day. What's up with that? I need to have a life outside of work. Just because we had a holiday yesterday, DOES NOT mean I will work extra hours the rest of the week. I need to enjoy the life i have and tend to my personal anxiety and depression issues.

Today I was so exhausted and got all my work done early. My work is adamant about 9-6, so around 4pm, I was over it. I went into the restroom, pretended to be going #2, and played games on my iPhone. It was glorious!

I'm a female and I work at a hardware store. Everyday I hear from male (and sometimes female) customers that they'd rather talk to a man because he'd actually know what he's talking about. I'm so tired of it, just because I'm a girl, doesn't mean I don't know about hardware/handiwork.

Every day that I'm at work I can't stop thinking what people's opinions of me are. I care too much about what people think and don't know what to do. Aaaahhhh >.<

Job hunting sucks (as I'm sure many of you relate). They all want tons of experience but no one wants to be the one to first give you the experience. It's just a never ending cycle of feeling like you aren't good enough and it just sucks

I am going to have to lay people off that are good workers due to the poor economy. I hate my job right now. I don't want to ruin people's lives.

I tend to commit on alot of things because of the fear of being disliked of the persons who offers the job but it ends up draining me. Urgh NOTE TO SELF learn to say no 🙄

I love my work place and my coworkers, but I sit on a desk all day everyday and I feel like I never have time to get up and walk around and I even eat at my desk because I have so much work to do

I work at a fast food place. The customers are always rude and condescending, but the managers aren't any better. There are now workers that harrass me and tell me that I should stay away from them because I make them angry when I only go to work to do my job and leave. Every position gives me anxiety, and I can't do well under so much pressure, but I can't just get up and quit either since this is all I have. I can feel it bringing me down constantly but I don't know what to do.. I feel stuck..

In the mornings when I have to go to work and at work I begin to get anxious. I feel nervous and can't breath. It used to go away in early afternoon but not it stays and gets worse. When I get house I begin to relax.

I have a job interview today. My communication skills is not good. I hate my anxiety, it results me into this in having a hard time expressing my thoughts in words. And my insecurities in my spoken English. I hope my interview goes well tho.
