One of my biggest hang ups is getting the shakes from an onset of anxiety at work. Really working hard at letting go of this belief

I work in a call center.. So many times people are just so mean when all I do is try to fix the situation. Its hard when you have such a negative person cut you down, it makes me want to walk out.. But then I get the customers who are just amazing and makes me remember why I like my job.. Like Dr Phil said, "It takes a 1,000 atta girls to erase 1 negative comment"

I hate my job and I want out! I'm just over it, the job, the people, the business. It's not what I want, there's no challage and the people are not people I want to associate with. It sounds snobby to say it's beneath me but it is. I'm too intelligent and educated to be trapped in this job yet trapped is what I am. Everytime I think there's a way out the cage door crashes down again. I'm tired of sitting at my desk crying cause I hate it so much!

Jobs are just so unfair these days. My work is going through some changes that is stressing me out. I am wary about the whole thing and don't trust what they are doing one bit.

HR director says she'd love to have lunch. Mind: she's going to fire me. Boss says he'd be happy to see me if I fly over to HQ. Mind: he's going to fire me. Get promoted; It's a ruse to fire me in a few months. Asked to invest in the company; they want to take my money then fire me. Investors invite me to conference in Silicon Valley. Must be a pre- firing test. There is literally no situation that I can't catastrophise about. This app helps slow me down. Then I can laugh about it.

I work in fast food, and it's not my favorite environment, and my anxiety makes it harder. Every single shift is a challenge for me. I have panic attacks before, after, or during each one. I don't know what my problem is. I wonder if it is the constant interaction with people, the seemingly unnecessary procedures we have to follow, the monotony, the stress, the angry teenage girls I work with. I need out, but there's no other options for me because any job can be stressful. I want out.

Me siento menospreciada, doy mi opinión y parece no ser la adecuada y al final hacen lo que yo sugerí, siento que no debería estar aqui

Had a fight with my nurse last time I worked and I really don't want to go back tomorrow. I don't forgive the things she said to me and I know she will keep trying to demean me.

Working in the mental health field sucks sometimes. I love the fact that I have been helping a lot of hurting youth for about 10 years, but it wears on you overtime. I have learned self-care is super important. There are those days that I simply want to just quit due to always dealing with extremely viloent and suicidal youth. I have a interview working in a different area of mental health that I am really hoping goes in my favor. As much as I hate my job sometimes I am thankful that a have one.

I work at a restaurant... And I haven't worked in a few weeks due to vacation, and it is so obvious I forgot the name of one of our sandwiches and my manager was right there and I just ended up handing it to someone and left! Then I took a call in order and couldn't understand the name the guy kept saying. I had him repeat it like 6 times and spell it 3 times 😅 and I got out at like 9:30 pm. I have a double shift today and I got maybe 4 hours of sleep and cramping badly...

Work has my anxiety through the roof. We have so many travelers yet staffing still SUCKS. I've started meditating but I'm still bleh.

I don't like walking into my office and feeling as if people are staring at me and talking about me

I'm in high school and I take college courses so that by the time I finish high school, I'll have had two years of free college. This year I decided I was unhappy and that I was going to go to a different school and take art classes instead. I thought it would make me happier but my depression has made me uninterested in art and I don't care about anything anymore. It's worse than it's ever been and now I'm not only taking classes I don't want but I threw away free college for them.

I've been working on letting go of the idea that I am being judged by everything I do at work. There is more to my life than work!

I've been unemployed for almost 7 months now and I'm feeling really discouraged. It makes me think "what's wrong with me?"

There is this new girl at work that I feel doesn't like me for no reason. She tries to go above and beyond my coworkers and I who have been working here for years and she has said that we don't do our jobs well enough. Excuse me, but if we didn't do our job well enough we wouldn't still be here. Our boss always tells us how awesome we are, too. I just don't get why some people feel like they are better than everyone else. It gives me anxiety when I know I have to work with her...

First day back at work in a week at the job I hate. Depressed would be a good word to describe the feeling. Wish me luck

I had a job interview and they called me recently. They are giving ne the job until July 13th. Why?? I'm going to be in sales and retail. Why wait so long to take me in?

I have a work evaluation this afternoon. The person evaluating me is the 1 person I clash with at work so she only sees her point of view. Also didn't get the promotion they let slip I was most likely getting. I want to ask about it but terrified to do so. I've been working same position for 5 years and every year they give me more and more responsibilities but not job title change to go with it so it just looks like I've been stagnant instead of working my ass off.

I just recently taken a medical leave from work. The stress has paralyzed me and I thought I was going to lose it.

I work in long term care and lately between an overwhelming nurse and my worsening anxiety, I've found myself breaking down at work more and more. Whether it's locked in a bathroom or hiding in a vacant patient's room I've tried so hard not to let anyone catch on. But it gets harder every day...

I'm stressed about my job and have major anxiety anyways, but last week they put me on a coaching plan. I had a panic attack and started crying. It was awful and now I try every day to go in with a positive attitude. So hard.
