Stress at Work

I get so anxious about all my interactions at work. I dwell on things I said or did that I think made me seem like a jerk. I think about them all evening then go to work the next day and find new things to worry about...

Working in a team of extroverts is really getting to me. When you're crucified during performance reviews for being socially inept and you're good work is overlooked, it just makes me more depressed and resentful. Thanks for all of the shares everyone, it is really great to know that we all have similar experiences.

I have studied for 5 years to become a psychologist and can't find a job now because there are no vacancies. I cannot find another job because I'm inexperienced or overqualified for that. I am stuck at home now, living back at my parents place and without a job after giving up so much for always putting a lot of time into studying and working on my cv.

Have you ever hated a job so much you would rather stab yourself in the eye than go? I quit being a CNA for a reason. The pay is shit, you get treated like shit, you get stuck with jobs no one wants, like cleaning literal shit... But it's the only thing I can find and I start Monday. I just want to curl into a ball and cry, but someone's gotta pay the bills :/

Churning about my boss and his micromanaging. Damages my confidence and increases my anxiety. I am a highly trained professional with a lot of success. With anxiety and depression, I can't tolerate this kind of pushing and don't need more reasons to doubt myself

I'm a field case manager for a pretty big organization and the third youngest person at work. I get overwhelmed sometimes...I serve hard to serve communities and am tired of getting cursed out, threatened, ignored, disregarded. It's thankless but rewarding. That's strange, right?! I've taken more personal days than I'd care to admit and feel incompetent at times. Sigh.

I thought a more challenging position would help with my depression but I am now in charge of 40-60 ongoing projects at any given time, with constant turnover and I have never been more stressed in my life. Part of me tries to imagine that if I can learn how to cope with this job then maybe any other job will be a piece of cake. But some days the only thing that gets me through is telling myself that I can just quit at any time.

I work in retail and sone days I am scared to go in. I feel like my boss, my coworkers and the customers are judging me even when I know they aren't. And the stress is so much sometimes I don't know how to cope. I always worry I'll be fired when there is no reason they would. Sometimes my anxiety gets the better of me.

Horrible job. No money. Tons of student loan debt. And no hope for my future. All my goals are unattainable. There's no happiness in my life anymore.

Have to work a longer shift than I'm used to today, and worried about my endometriosis flaring up in the middle of it.. Nervous about everything. Sigh, I wish I didn't have to work this job..

I have no idea how to tell my parents that I don't work at my job anymore. I basically just stopped going because I couldn't handle it or anything for that matter. If they find that out they're going to hate me more than they already do. If anyone could help is really appreciate it.

I haven't shown up for work in almost a week because I'm so emotionally unstable that I can't handle anything right now. My parents think I've been going to work everyday but I really just sit in the parking lot and cry. I don't know if I'm even still employed there or not and all I can think about is how freaking angry my parents are going to be if I tell them that I don't have that job anymore. I feel like I'm going to implode.

There's a manager at my work that literally goes out of her way to screw me over just because she can and knows I can't do anything about it. I've talked to my manager about this and he basically told me to deal with it๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

I feel like my job has lowered my work ethic due to poor management throughout the whole company. I just wish I was in a position where I could make some changes.

I am a cataloguer at a public library. My supervisor and many colleagues are incredibly pessimistic and cynical. It is emotionally draining. I've been here four years. It's my first job out of college. I came here energetic and optimistic. Now I am stressed, tired and unmotivated. I've also decided this whole field isn't right for me. I want to leave to start my own travel writing business. Just thought I'd put my thoughts out there in the world. Thanks for reading.

I'm in charge of a child's behavior and wellbeing. what if I'm doing it wrong? I'm qualified but everyone else at the school makes me feel too young to have this job.

Three hours into work and I've already fucked up big time another five to go and all I want to do is hide in the toilets and cry

I'm skipping more days at work because I hate how anxious and irritated I feel when I'm there. I hate how preppy I have to be with management and customers. It drains me.

I'm scared I'll have a panic attack at work because of how stressful life is right now. I'm scared about how they will judge me and call me crazy and not trust me properly again if I do

When your boss basically tell you your performance is awful in work, especially when you've feel you've made progress. Doesn't make you feel the best. Told me I'm letting the team down. Thanks!!
