after my first week as a camp counselors I finally found a way to tell my boss that I have anxiety and that it's really hard to talk to people and she was totally supportive, saying her sister has anxiety and she let me have a break to collect myself when I was having an anxiety attack. It helps that she's only one year older than me and understands how overwhelmed I am

I'm only an apprentice, but it seems like I'm the only one who does anything in my field (administration). I hate that I get no credit, but lately I have been trying REALLY hard and my hard work is beginning to pay off. Keep it up people!

Waiting for that promotion while trying to maintain a good work ethic. Hating all the coworkers. Hating all the people around.

I have a company wide work meeting every Monday and this week it's on Tuesday. The meeting is mainly pointless but we each have to go through our sales numbers for the previous week and what we expect next week from the number of appointments. I have nothing. It's been a couple weeks since I've had anything.

Hello. I am a freelance artist. I have anxiety or at least anxious thoughts. I've moved around a lot over the past year or so and haven't had a chance to get a lot of help. I often have doubts about my career path, my income, falling behind my friends and my ability to make anything of myself. I'm always feel behind schedule and stress often about the amount of work I have to do. It can be lonely work sometimes working from home. I love my job but sometimes I can feel very overwhelmed.

I work in customer service and people are so rude. Ian not there to be treated like a slave.I am equal to everyone else in this world. And management always wants you to get stuff done but never gives you time to do it!!! Grrrrrr

Had a 1:1 with management and they said I was doing great and to submit goals for this QT. I do that and very next day I am told I can't advance till I show my ability to keep up (I was not actually behind, my developer had put work in the scope that was not actually being done by mistake) so after 7 years I am still a level 1 and one of the lowest paid, and my kiss butt coworker gets a massive raise after a year, and I have more training and experience, he just became friends with manager. 😞

I work two jobs. One I absolutely love, and one I hate. I usually only get one day off every two weeks. I need to work both jobs because money is super tight. Working both in one day makes me stressed out beyond belief. I just don't know how to make my stress less. I can't really take days off and it just sucks sometimes. It's difficult to have a social life and make money and have fun the way I'm suppose to at my age. Ugh this sucks 😩

So frustrated! I have a design degree and am a buyer/merchant with 20 years experience but out fresh out of college graphic designer wants to do things her way to make them pretty but the categories she is pushing for the single largest ad of the year are minor and not where we make our money in our stores! Argh! I understand pretty. I freaking love pretty, but I also understand our bottom line profit margin and the top line sales drivers!

Second time in a row now that I got decline for a job. I work my butt off to do so well in these interviews and come up with great answers that the interviewer likes but still don't get a job? I feel like stuff a loser and I'm not going to get far in this work if I can't even get a job. I'm so done with everything. I don't even want to go on any other interviews just to get rejected for a third time.

I missed work for 2 weeks because I had pneumonia, now everyone is rushing me and telling me it's my fault things are delayed when they could have perfectly and easily done them. Someone even touched my desk and said "tick tock" to hurry me up. I'm doing my best! I recovered those 2 weeks I missed in one day, but nothing is ever enough

I finally get a well deserved Promotion! But now who I thought was a friend at work turned on me and became jealous green monster. He had the gall to say that they created a position for me cause I'm a woman...nvm that I worked hard for 5 years and that my duties had greatly evolved outside of my then job description...ass

I'm trying my best to help mama bebe(my patient) but you know what hurts most? She doesnt trusts me. She wanted her grand child Jayson to take care of her. I couldnt blame her cause I know i am not a good nurse. Jayson is smart while i am stupid. Anyhow, i am still here for her even though she always make me feel unwanted.

As a manager at a convenient store I called in constantly, have to deal with the most rude and nasty people, have to sell people who buy a ton of cigarettes and alcohol candy, soda, etc, on their food stamp card, worko g hours, get little pay, have to deal with employees being late/not coming in for work, and complaints about EVERYTHING like it is my fault the company has so and so rule or regulation. I never can make plans. I work every shift every week.

I am a recent sonography grad & lost my first job after a week. The expectations of the hospital were much higher than I was used to & I made so many silly mistakes. I'm trying to remain positive, thinking that that job just wasn't where I'm supposed to be. But I'm interested to know if any other sonographers have anxiety & how you keep it in check? Thanks!

I want to have an important conversation with my boss on Monday but I'm worried how it will go. I can't stop thinking about it and it's making me feel really negatively about myself.

Being on call sucks, I make plans then I have to cancel them so I can go to work because I don't want to get fired. I have to work tomorrow morning at 8:30 which makes me not able to stay at my boyfriend's house. Now I'm not going to sleep tonight... second time in a row I have to stay at home. Goddamnit.

I fell asleep during a telecon today (early morning for me), and didn't respond when my boss started asking me questions. And this was because I stayed up late working too! Sometimes it feels like I spend all my time working but I end up getting it all wrong.

Once again being told about my under performance in work. What do you expect when managers give me nothing but negative feedback about my work?!
