Stress at Work

I work with kids and I'm really getting burned out. Burned out from the kids, parents, coworkers. I hope I get this new job.

I have a good job but it stresses me out so much. There are good and bad days and bad days give me so much anxiety. And I know a lot of it is just in my head.

My job is great, in that I am working in my field of study and am salary and set my own schedule. My job is awful in that I am overworked, underpaid and underqualified. I try to be grateful for what I have but I hate that my job takes up so much time and puts so much stress on my family. I also receive very little praise or feedback so it makes it difficult to find pride or joy in what I do. Wish there was an answer. Or that I could run away from society and live in the mountains!

Needed some money so started my part time job today. Had mini anxiety attacks but couldnt let it out in front of customers. But everyone was super friendly and helpful. Great first day!

I love my new job when I'm there but then all the time I'm home in between shifts is spent stressing and worrying about the next upcoming shift. It's all I think about and it's making me doubt if I was healthy enough to accept this job in the first place...

I start my first shift today for my first job and I'm terrified.

I feel so inadequate. I have had this job for7 years and wake up at 3 am each work day with fear and anxiety that someone will call me out for not being good enough...

I never get any time off and it's causing me to be a mess. I'm so stressed everyday. But I don't want to change my hours because they might not give me as many shifts. I don't wanna let people down...

I'm a substitute teacher and today I worked with one of the most difficult classes yet. It was Special Ed Pre-K. I'm so stressed, but not even because of the kids, because of the 2 horrible Teachers Aides. They were so rude and mean. They have no respect for each other and constantly use passive aggressive tones. Bitches.

My boss belittles me because I'm a woman. No matter how hard I work, it doesn't matter how cerebral the task I accomplish, I realize that he'll just never see me as more than inferior because of my gender. I feel t-r-a-p-p-e-d.

I'm kinda new at my job and when I'm having one of my bad days I keep making mistakes. It makes me feel so useless.

I have a colleague at work that doesn't like the job she is doing and her low mood is seriously bringing me down. She is so negative about everything.

I'm a nanny, and the kids I care for are honestly complete nightmares. My 2 year old joins me and he's bullied. I get zero respect. The kids have been lectured twice now, and no change. Just thinking about having to work tomorrow is stressing me out. I even got a stress ulster!

I have to handle a lot on my own and at times feel like I am getting pulled in 20 directions at once. I criticize myself for being weak when I get burned out and tired.

I'm a manager with crippling anxiety. I'm so under confident in my role that I feel I don't deserve it.

I am 3 weeks into a new job. I like it and I'm so happy to have it but I find myself feeling constantly inadequate, almost like an imposter. I'm afraid I'll let everyone down.

It's really annoying me that in my work review (which was mostly glowing) they said I'm introverted - like it's a bad thing!! Just cos I shut up and get on with my work I'm seen as not outgoing enough. It's about time introverts got some respect for the attributes they bring! :(

I have been at my job for a year now, I am under paid and work my ass off, I have gotten two promotions but still don't make shit. I am about 3 weeks away from getting my masters degree. I don't want to leave this company but I'm afraid when they open the new location they still won't be able to pay what I'm needing. I would hate to throw all the hard work away that I have done here and have to start over. Not sure what to do...if I should wait it out or try and find another job??

I get so frustrated with the attitude of people I work with and overwhelmed with the workload.and pressure . It gets me down because my actual job is such a privilege and I'm proud of it but it's making me ill physically and mentally and I don't know what to do for the best and how to get through it. Put up with it to do the job I aimed for or leave for my own health and sanity feeling defeated. Lose lose situation

I have pretty bad agoraphobia, and have near daily panic attacks. I have to bring pristiq where ever I go just in case. I haven't left the house for a long time, but I had to get a job to pay my bills. I got through the day. I can't believe it! About 10min after I clocked out I found out one of my friends was mad at me getting the job. Apparently she applied and never got a call back. She's upset because it doesn't make sense "the girl with issues" got it. I was almost proud but not so much now.
