Stress at Work

I hate Sundays because I know I have to begin the obstacle race again. I have to stay in my disguise the whole time.

So I just got a callback from the job interview and they want me to come in for a trial next week. I'm so elated and proud of myself!!

Why is it that on days you work, you struggle so much just to get through? You look forward to a day off to breathe. But when you get a day off, the anxiety and depression grows exponentially so you can't enjoy anything.

Waking up panicked about work on a Sunday...just even about the fact that I have to do it, and go back on Monday.

I'm trying to work through job applications but never complete them because I don't think I'm good enough and I'd rather just avoid the inevitable rejection.

I am a manager and the job is very stressful with a lot of responsibilities. Sometimes I don't want to work this hard. But I try to tell myself this job is just one small part of your life. It's the other 16 hours that really make up who I am. And I have much to be thankful for with a loving family, good friends, etc. I try to focus on that part of my life not the stressful demanding part

I am 22 years old and work as a Kindergarten Teacher assistant. I have recently began feeling overwhelmed and my level of stress has been so sever that I began developing high blood pressure. It's bittersweet, because being around these children and their positive energy has helped with my depression/ anxiety, while simultaneously wearing me down both physically and mentally. HELP!

I teach & right now I only function at school. I give my all there & fall apart at home. Today I barely got everyone out & made it to my room before having a large anxiety attack. Normally I get in a safe space and they pass quickly. This time I hyperventalated for a long time and then hysterically cried. I felt like I wanted out of my skin & was tugging my hair, pants, floor. A friend came & saw. As much as I talk about it, ppl don't see me do this. I had to call my husband to drive me home.

My boss has caused me such bad anxiety and grief! A career and company I once enjoyed. I do need to report him to HR because his ways are considered harassment. I did report him to his direct manager and it took them months to do something about it. Really town between leaving this company or try and change managers..

Today is my first day back at work after I was admitted to hospital because I couldn't cope. I'm trying to keep calm and breathe whenever I'm started to get anxious and stressed. I can't wait for the day to be over!! 4 hours to go!

I'm the only person at work that actually does their job.

The moment you find an empty room at work, your meds kick in, and you do a bunch of relaxation breathing exercises on this app... I can do this.

I'm so depressed at work and when I'm not at work I'm anxious thinking about it. I deal with a lot of condescending people. No matter how hard I work, nothing I do is good enough.

Tomorrow I have to tell my team that we don't get any more funding. I haven't felt supported at work and the whole process has been difficult but I'm not sure if it's a legitimately stressful situation or my thought processes have made it worse.

So I have this gender neutral social name that everyone uses. But my boss insist on using my other name (with gender). I've already gave him a few tips that I don't like it but he seems to forget it from time to time... i need the courage to confront him directly about it :/

I had a day off from work today. I love having days off because at work I'm constantly anxious. My boss is so mean and will easily be little you or say nasty things if you aren't doing things the way she wants them done. I always freak out when I found out she's at work. I just would love to be comfortable at work when she's there. She makes me anxious of making mistakes.

Can't get a job ... Currently working at the family bussiness... Sending out tons of resumes but every path leads me nowhere. Starting to feel hopeless :(

I have two coworkers and one of them just sits around while me and the other girl do all the work. Every now and then she does her part but not often enough to make much of a difference. I like her as a person but she needs to do her share. I'm not good at confrontation though so I'm not sure what to do. I kind of just want to yell at her

May loose my job Monday. My anxiety is off the wall.

I work as a server in a busy restaurant. Tonight I had to call in because my anxiety wouldn't let me get out the door. The service industry can be seriously rough

I'm starting a new job on Wednesday and I've been having random palpitations all week... I really want this and I'm so happy, but I know I'm stressed because I haven't worked since July and I feel like my anxiety is going to ruin everything πŸ™ˆ

I had at least 3 people call me today at work yelling at me over things that are not my control. I work for an insurance company and I have had it with these people.
