Stress at Work

I work for a company that doesn't really appreciate or acknowledge good work. They're always ready to nit-pick the bad things but when something goes well and my team accomplishes something, it's like the managers are blind and ignorant to that. It's just frustrating always trying to do your best and feel so underappreciated

I love my actual job and what it entails but I hate the people I work with. They gossip and try to ruin all my hard work. Now I dread going into work because I am fed up of being around two faced people

As a teacher, report card time is super hard for me. Every morning teachers are happily counting down the days to summer and I'm panicking that I haven't covered enough. They keep piling on more work but taking away the hours to do the work. It's no wonder we all have physical and mental health issues and there is a high rate of teachers quiting in the first 5 years. I wake up feeling panicked and have to take anxiety meds before school starts. And I'm actually in a good place mentally.

One word, drama. There is so much drama at my job. I rarly come home still smiling, let alone wake up with one knowing I have to work. I liked smiling and being happy all the time. This job drains all that out of me. Is it because I work with customer service? For being the happiest place on earth, I am not that happy there.

Im a perfectionist. When I receive criticism at work, be it positive or negative, I struggle not to fall apart. It eats me up inside until i can fix it. Any ideas on how to cope?

I have to go to work in an hour, it's only a 4 hour shift but my depression has been so bad and my body physically hurts that I truly do not want to go. But I have to, I have to suck it up and get through it but I feel like I can't. Today is one of the busiest days of the year as it is Memorial Day, therefor even if I was throwing up I still would have to work. I'm exhausted, I'm just so exhausted.

To me, talking out loud uses up too much energy.

Recently been made redundant at work. It wasn't related to my performance in anyway but now when I'm looking for new jobs I'm constantly questioning myself. Can I do it? What I I can't do it and I get laid off again? Couple that with the fact I now feel I have no direction in my life I can hardly even get out of bed each day. Being told it's not performance related it's just business should be a positive thing yet I can't switch to a more positive thought pattern. Maybe I just need time.

I thought I was helping someone but got taken advantage of because of my own professional stupidity. I hate myself right now.

I work a standard 9-5, M-F job...I cry every Sunday evening because I dread going to work the next day. Some mornings I cry in the car on my way to work.

I've been working at my job for 3 years and I hate it. I want to go back out there and get a job as a medical assistant, but I get nervous during interviews. I asked help from my college that I graduated, but they won't help me out. Anything I can do? I never got a job in my field

My corporate job can be very demanding and stressful at times..I really wonder how other people manage everything and to keep it together ..Does anyone ever feel like their anxiety gets in the way? I just feel exhausted from my commute, job, and micro manager of a boss.

i hate my job so much. but 3 of my collegues have also quit in the past year so, although i hate my boss, i can't bring myself to quit and cause the company to be even more under-staffed. i'd feel guilty to leave just because i'm anxious!

I've only been in a new job for 2 months now and I already am more depressed than when I was unemployed. The main person I work with is threatened that I will take her job, so she's making my life an absolute misery every day. It's like sitting next to a black hole that sucks anything positive out and she keeps telling managers that I don't do any work or finds other opportunities to throw me under a bus. I'm exhausted as it is constantly fighting anxiety / depression doing my job without this

I work from home which so many people tell me they're envious of. However, to me, it's made me withdraw from life even more. It makes it very easy to stay home in your pajamas and not go out for days on end.

Most mornings before work I have anxiety. I've been working at this job for over a year and a half now and am quite familiar with most everybody. But I still have this anxiety of what others think of me and a social anxiety of talking with others. I just wish I coils be comfortable in my own skin about who I am and just be confident in how hard I work.

The goal was always uni, then the training year after it. Now that's almost over I'm not sure what I want. I feel like what actually makes me happy has been put on hold. For some reason I can't balance things properly. In my head it's work vs. life when really I should be doing a job that I don't see as such a negative thing.

I want to quit my job and go travelling and enjoy my summer rather than work full time at a restaurant. But I know I should do the smart thing and stick with it to save money. But why should I do something that makes me miserable and isnt going anywhere?

I see the world a lot differently . I dont like the reality that everyone else wants . A family, a job for 30+ years, a house to spend the rest of your life in . To me that doesnt seem ideal . Idk what i want to do and it stresses me out , bevauze i don't want to work under bosses for the rest of my life . That life style seems so depressinb . I want to travel the world and help people . I want to touch peoples lives and inspire . I just dont know how .
