Stress at Work

the lazy staff that gets away with doing absolutely anything they want basically but when it comes to me and I forget to do one little thing after picking up after everyone else slack...I get in shit for it. I get that they depend on me to make sure stuff gets done but why can't they see how exhausting this is for me mentally. I have probably 4 break downs a day of me crying in the bathroom because I can't handle this place. benefits keep me here because I need them for my mental health...

I'm finding it hard to switch off when I get home. I am constantly worrying about work.

I love my job. It's the speed at which I have to produce that's exhausting.

Taking care of other people when you feel like you can barely function yourself. I love my job, but so exhausting right now.

When is it okay to take time off work with a doctors note for depression and anxiety? I want to but not sure if I should...

I hate my job so much. I'm a teacher and I'm trying to finish out the year, but I don't know if I can. All I do is get chewed out by parents and other teachers about what I'm doing wrong when I am devoting every ounce of myself to these kids.

I'm panicking because I feel like I need to get a lot of work done to prove I'm up for the (freelance) job, but but I'm running a little late and the morning is a slower. Feel completely out of control when this happens.

Most of the time I like my job, I even want to be a team leader there but at the same time my anxiety makes me question if I'd fail at that like I do everything else and if I could handle the pressure. I have an opportunity to go to other stores in a couple of months to help out but I hate moving out of my routines, even if it's only for a few weeks, as this is a major trigger for my anxiety. Worrying about it is keeping me awake all night more than usual.

I finish all my jobs by mid day and I've tidied the entire office and done every ad hoc duty I can think of, including scrubbing behind the cabinets. I'm only a month into this job and I nailed it within a week because, the one benefit my mental health issues gave me, I'm so paranoid and organised that I excel in working environments. I'm even organising and doing my own charity event by myself for the foundation. All sounds great? But I hate sitting round doing nothing and its getting boring

Haha remember guys this is about work related stress not school/homework related stress! Some of us have been out of school for 12 years!

You know what I hate more than being late, I hate having to depend on someone to help you get to work so you won't be late, but they end up not showing up. I am so pissed. You know I can't drive, so why are we stalling!!!!!

I have just been signed off work due to depression and severe anxiety - what shall I do in my time off to make sure I am well enough to go back to work?

I'm unable to go to work due to my anxiety, I am finally going to try and go back to work tomorrow but I'm feeling very anxious to see everyone after being away for so long. Eeek

Anxiously awaiting to hear from a job interview. My current place of employment was so great- and I miss believing in the organization and its mission. I miss my coworkers that were laid off. I'll miss the ones that will eventually find other jobs. I feel stuck, lost and forgotten.

Every day is a mental battle to go into my internship. I only have a few more months but it seems so far away. It is very draining and starting to effect my mood everyday. Trying to stay positive but it's so hard when all you want to do is sleep.

I got FIRED from my job; coincidentally just a week after reporting verbal abuse from a manager. (A manager who verbally harassed many employees, and got caught stealing tips, and who still has her job...) The store manager accused me of HIDING SILVERWARE (seriously, he couldn't come up with something better?) and fired me for it. And, it turns out that the legal benefits my dad gets from work doesn't cover this, so if we want to pursue this we need to hire a lawyer. ๐Ÿ˜“๐Ÿ˜ค๐Ÿ˜”

I'm working two jobs and going to school half time but I'm still broke and completely exhausted.. I get minimum wage at one and the other I get barely any hours and unfortunately they're both run by the same person who is convinced everyone is just trying to rob him of his money even though I'm broke within a week of my paycheck every time and I can't save any money and I'm always finding ways to save HIM money. Finding another job has been hard because of my social anxiety and I feel hopeless

I thought tutoring was the one thing that I could do. I thought it was my passion that I should be doing. Now that it's my main occupation, anxiety is building around it and it's gradually becoming more and more difficult to do it. Even though I've been doing this for more than 5 years now, I doubt myself and my ability to do my job regardless of how many kids I've helped so far.

I have a sales job going door to door and it is so stressful because I'm not one to talk to strangers, and sales is a hard career to have because no one cares about anything except numbers and money. Also, no matter how well you did the day before,the next day you still start at zero.

I'm so nervous for my new job. I know I'm not expected to be an expert, but I just feel so unqualified...and I don't start for a little bit of time so the anxiety just keeps growing!!

I feel so worthless at work sometimes. I'm an assistant pre k teacher and been working there for almost a month. I know that it takes time for the kids to listen and respect me. But I'm just done and wanna give up after today. I have 3 kids who are being so disrespectful and purposefully not listening to me. And the more I get mad, the more upset I get. And you could tell in my voice. It's so frustrating. I always work in a class where it has kids that don't listen at all.

there is such poor communication between my managers. it's starting to affect me and the other employees. they schedule me, a chronically and mentally ill teenager with a bad back, for almost the maximum amount of hours a part timer can work, per week, six days out of seven. im exhausted, mentally and physically. i had to hide in the back room and cry for the first two hours of my shift. ...i just want a nap and a cup of tea. please.
