Stress at Work

Back to work blues right now after 4 days off anxious isn't the word

Not sure how much longer I can stay at work. I need my job and I've already cut back my hours but it's killing me having to force myself in every morning. Where is the threshold for when I can give in and let my depression win?

Don't know if this post goes here, but couldn't find a better place. So, I am graduating with my masters degree in May and I want to take time off between graduation and finding a job. I know that doing that will help my mental health greatly, but in the US, we pride ourselves more on our work ethic than our ability to care for our mental health. How do I justify this to myself as a legitimate and well-needed break? (Continued in comments)

I'm trying to make the best of where I am at right now. But sometimes I feel like I just wanna throw in the towel and call it quits..

Have recently realised that if your work is making you sick through stress and anxiety, it can never be worth the money. Look for a positive environment, with respect and team work, doing something you love!

I have chronic pain. My coworkers think I'm making it up and that I'm not dependable. They have actually said to me that I'm to young to be in this much pain.

I need to start applying to internships related to my major. The process is daunting because I don't feel competent in myself or my skills. I'm worried I'll intern and mess up badly and all the people who work there will hate me.

I'm a server with high general anxiety and high social anxiety. Its stressful and I have about one panic attack a month, but my job has forced me out of my shell. I love and hate it all at once, but it's very rewarding.

I'm trying not to dread going to work. But I can't help it - I don't want to go so much it's making me feel physically sick. #ihatemyjob

It's been almost a year since I graduated college and I haven't scored a steady job. It's ironic because I had a well paying job for 2 years under a research grant for the university, but now that I'm not a student I can't seem to find an internship anywhere for my field. I want to punch a wall, I'm so tired of applying for a year straight and my window is closing for internships too. I'm mad that college was almost for nothing, and that I didn't make sure I had another job before graduating.

Would just like some information please. When I first told my boss about my depression he was supportive of it and other work colleagues tries to help and understood when I wasn't feeling great and they changed my role slightly to other me more viarity. This was great to begin with but over the course of 3-4 months it's just got back to how it was and in some cases worse and now I just get constant questions of "are you ok?" Which I know is only a sign of caring but I've been asked by -

I'm effectively working three jobs and only getting paid for one ๐Ÿ˜ž I'm working two unpaid internships in the jobs sector I want to get hired in to get the experience required and then working a retail job to pay rent. I'm working 7 days a week and living off practically nothing. I'm so worried all the time about conflicting deadlines and bills. Sometimes it feels like my head will explode and my body is just going to cave in on itself. I'm really struggling..

I work in a place where no rules are enforced and everyone is about protecting the status quo. Those of us who care and want to lead and step up to improve things for the organization are seen as trouble makers and marginalized - especially the ladies. Meanwhile, people who thumb their nose at the rules and don't invest in their particular employees are promoted and continually get ahead. It's wrong and I hate going in every single day. I resent it.

I sell cars for a living and sometimes customers are so rude because sales people already have a bad reputation so they automatically assume the same for me. Other sales people try and steal your customers, you get yelled at by managers, and the amount of hours you have to put in. Another issue might be that I'm a female sales person

I have been calling in sick to work so much lately. I hate my supervisor I hate my manager they are both so useless uneducated unintelligent and unprofessional. I'm trying to hold onto this job until I can buy a car but it's really fucking me up

I try to stay out off people's gossip because I think it's wrong to judge others. It seems like everyone at my job is always pissed and angry complaining about each other that it puts me in a bad mood. I come home stressed and drained ๐Ÿ˜ž

Do I take my redundancy and leave a company I've been at for over 10 years or do I stay there in a new role that I'm very uncertain about, that the company have only just created and feel like a human guinea pig? The senior manager on my first day told me I would struggle and tbh for just over minimum wage the amount of work expected and the speed is ridiculous. I don't know what to do...

After recently being made redundant from a job I adored and worked at for 11 years I find myself feeling incredibly flat and miserable in my new job. I miss my old work mates and the feeling of belonging so much. The manager at my new job told me I was going to struggle with the work on my first day, before I'd even started, I tried raising this as a concern but was told it was 'to motivate me'. My hearts not in the job and I hate going in but I'm trying my best to keep positive.

I work two low paying jobs that leave me exhausted and disheartened. I worked hard for a degree that was supposed to be the ticket to a career, and almost 7 Years later I still work at poverty wages.
