Stress at Work

I wish i wasn't so scared to go to work. It just feels like i keep messing up and i just feel that im beginning to stop caring about trying altogether.

I want to clear my social media accounts of all current work folks to avoid drama. I wonder if this will isolate me, but I know it will be best for my mental health.

I haven't been able to hold down a job in years, and now even something as small as a part-time 10 hours a week thing is terrifying to me.

I have been having anxious feelings for several months now but this morning it broke me. I like my job but I have weekly morning meetings every Monday and it really messes up my weekend. I begin to feel anxious on Saturday, it gets worse on Sunday then on Monday morning it immobilises me. This morning was the worst. I had a full on anxiety attack which stopped me from going to work today at all. This happens every week and getting worse. My job will be on the line if this continues. Ideas?

I'm going back to work next week after being off on disability for 4 months. I'm starting to get really anxious. My boss can be a real nightmare and I'm afraid I'm going to be her next target because I have been off for so long and everyone had to carry my workload. Any advice?

Today was my third day at my first job ever, obviously I'm still getting the hang of things. A customer came in, ordered a sandwich, and proceeded to decide that the sandwich I made wasn't good enough for him for a tiny tear in the bread, and had me throw it away so my coworker could make him a new one. I was mortified, and apparently he's a regular so he's going to be coming back, and I don't know what I should do when he does

I had my first day at the new job today. It was pretty ordinary I guess. I feel a little more sure of myself, but I am still worried what will happen when it gets more busy. I realise I am probably blowing things out of proportion in my mind.

Lots of work related stress lately, I feel like I'm overworked yet somehow still not doing enough. Not sure if I'm really doing anything right and I feel kind of alone. Is it just me?

I think one of the hardest things about my job is that I'm the only one on staff who is my age. The next closest person is 7 years older than me & im the youngest staff member so I get left out a lot. Most days it doesn't really bother me, but today I wish I had a coworker who was going thru the same life experiences.

I find my job very unfulfilling and am still, at the age of 32, trying to find a career I am passionate about.

I'm scared that I'm laying a poor foundation for my students. I'm scared that they don't respect or appreciate me. I feel like a bad teacher when I can't cope with stress.

I just had two interviews with a company I really wanna work for. The GM told me they would call me back either today or Thursday. I've been patiently waiting all day to hear back and I don't wanna get my hopes up on this job. I'm so scared and so nervous I won't get it.

I like my job, however i get crippling anxiety before going in. It ususlly fades after awhile.. My doctor told me to take a week off work as I was having suicidal thoughts and side effects from prozac. She's tapering me off prozac and putting me on wellbutrin.. Today is my first day back and I'm nervous.

I've decided that tomorrow I'm going to hand in my notice, my manager scares me though. I've been accepted for a new job, I'm just waiting for my DBS to come through. I just need to survive my one months notice.

I'm afraid that I would screw up big time at my work that it could ruin my entire life. Sigh~

I want to leave. I speak about four times a day and my boss is an incredibly moody and miserable person, the atmosphere is horrible. It is starting to drop me back into depression. I can't leave, it's 5 minutes from home and I'm the only one who takes care of our dog. I have no other options.

I have an interview at a pet store today and I should be excited, but my anxiety is telling me I'll fuck it up and I shouldn't even go. I'm going regardless, I just wish I was allowed to be optimistic anymore.

When having a panic attack at work and people keep asking if you're ok. I'm so grateful and thankful they care enough to ask but talking to them without explaining what's wrong makes it harder to calm down afterwards. Be strong!

Been miserable with work lately-passive aggressive coworkers, verbal attacks, and I feel completely hopeless that this will subside. Tired of hiding out in a supply closet to cry.
