Stress at Work

I had to call out of work today because I had a panic attack about going. It made me feel like such a failure I hate calling out I don't like to let others down or be unreliable

When you never get out on time and don't get paid any extra for it.

This is my first year teaching and it's been brutal. The work load is insane. I come home every night feeling like an utter failure.

I was just let go from my work. I am hopeful that when one door closes another one opens, but man does it still hurt.

Turned 14 nine months ago (legal working age in my state) and got a job four months later. I had a breakdown my first day. But after five months it got easier and it helped me handle being under pressure a little better. My point is, sometimes facing it is the way to go. :)

i've had the same job that i enjoy for almost 2 yrs. im a counselor for teens but have to interact with their families and providers too. i just feel very discouraged because people (not the teens) always say i'm quiet. it makes me feel worthless and like i shouldn't do this. i work so hard to be outgoint and i guess it's not goot enough.

Currently unemployed after being made redundant, feeling quite positive at the moment but some of the interview processes I've been through for potential new jobs are ridiculous.

I work 6 days a week. I am 16 working my butt off so I can support my family. It's so exhausting but it's all I'm good at. It's my safe place

I just started a new job in a sales position. It's research based cold calling and I absolutely hate it. I'm literally sitting at a table with 6 other people (right next to my boss), trying to convince people they should pay $13,000 to be a sponsor of some stupid conference. I'm diagnosed bipolar and borderline personality, and I feel like ALL of my symptoms are ready to explode and its the absolute worst

I had an interview with a very big company(my dream job) & they went over what was required &I totally am freaking out. I don't know how I can handle it with my anxiety. Everyone is expecting me to get it, but if I do I want to turn it down. I just can't handle the anxiety with it. It makes me feel sick all the time. And I don't even know if I have to job yet. I'm praying for a rejection email. I heard they may be making calls tomorrow and I can already feel my heart rate increasing. This sucks.

I start my first job tomorrow and I'm so nervous and scared about everything. will they help me learn how to do things or expect me to already know? should I ask a lot of questions or will that annoy everyone? I'm also worried about lunch 😞

I already want to quit my new job and I just got comfortable with it. It's just too much stress for me and I took on more than I can handle. But I feel awful putting in my two weeks notice now because everyone seems to be quitting at the same time. However, I was offered another job yesterday that will pay me double what I make now. I know what I need to do but I'm scared to quit so early.

I just don't want to deal with the nevnenever ending highschool-like drama. It wears me down and makes it so difficult to go.

I feel like my coworkers don't like me and I always have trouble talking to them because I don't want them to get upset. (I'm a manager) I don't understand why I care so much about it

Been working as a caregiver in mental health for the last 8 months, and while some days are okay... others have me so stressed out. Even when there's nothing to stress over. I feel like I can never relax. Sometimes, the job gets so crazy that it has made my anxiety skyrocket. I can't relate with my co-workers and my boss is intimidating. Don't know how much more I can take.

Finally was able to complete a job application for the first time without having a panic attack earlier this week. I got an email this morning saying they want to do a phone interview and I'm kinda freaking out. I've never been good at phone calls, if I get the job it's a long drive (daunting because I sometimes get nervous driving), and this will be my first job. I'm having my "pre-panic attack" symptoms and I'm scared I won't be able to calm down before I lose it and have another attack. Help

First night at my new job. Wasn't really trained so I had to figure everything out on my own and kept getting yelled at for not knowing where things were at. Sure made me feel stupid and very unappreciated. Trying to to cry and give up

We had a very busy last few months at work, where I even worked overtime. My paycheck is now 2 weeks late. Our bank account is now almost overdraft. I'm completely stressing out.
