Stress at Work

I'm quitting for my mental health. Two weeks to go

Posted at Aug 2, 2016 2:41 AM, 2 comments

I'm a female partner at a large law firm. I'm grateful to have two healthy lovely kids and hubby that does all housework (he teaches so gets home earlier). I'm no longer interested in being "at the top"-I'm so grateful I'm home early with my kids. My mom guilt is so oppressive at times I can hardly breathe. But this year I'm simplifying, not volunteering, and focusing on work and fam. Try it.

daily panic attacks before and during work are becoming a thing. I hate my life.

I can't WAIT to actually get a call for an interview. It's been months of applying and I'm so worried bc the longer this goes on the worse my mental health gets :(

Very stressed and anxious about going into work today. Might have some run ins with my difficult boss. Lots of meetings all day + I have many other things on my plate. My workplace is very chaotic & dysfunctional. Can't work too late because my son is in town.

I'm so nervous for today. I have an interview for a position in a similar organization to the one I currently work for. If I'm offered a job, I'll be putting in my two weeks notice at my current job. Two super stressful meetings in one day... Oh boy.

We had an event at work for the midnight release of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child and honestly I was so anxious because I'm not a night owl. I normally go to bed around 10pm (which is when the party started). I was even getting annoyed that I had to go. But honestly, once I was there I had a lot of fun. And normally I don't like big parties either. Feeling good today after the night :) although I do hope I don't have to do it again soon lol.

I took a risk today by interrupting a meeting but it I am hoping it will pay off.

I'm an EMT of 6.5 years. Been off work for over a year. I've seen a lot of shit. More than anyone should, but still far less than many others in my field - including police, fire and other first responders. My symptoms started years ago after a particularly awful call. Recently - 3 years later almost to the day - I was sent to a psych ward for attempted suicide. I have a long way to go in my progress but I want to reach out to other First Responders with PTSD. Let's end the stigma together.

It's been about a week since I got fired. I still feel incredibly trapped and isolated. I find myself having panic attacks whenever I think about it, which is honestly whenever my music gets too quiet. My already dismal confidence has been shaken. I wish it was easy for me to find a job. It took me so long to find this one. I'd like to blame my disability but I'm worried I don't have it 'bad enough' and I hate using it as a crutch. Lately it feels like a ball and chain.

I work in retail and it can be so stressful that I sometimes go in the stock room for a break away from my managers, co-workers and the customers. Sometimes I pretend to be sick or make myself feel sick to get out of work if that doesn't help I go for a drink after my shift has ended

I am so SICK of my job. It takes everything I have to go in. They've restructured and given me an absolutely terrible shift that really interferes with my home life. I've been looking for something better but no luck yet.

My work is stressful and as I leave... They give raises.

I love being a front desk clerk for a hotel because I love being treated like I'm nothing and just someone that you can scream at. Sir, I'm sorry that you didn't look with your eyes to see there was spilled tar. I'm legitimately sorry your dog stepped in it but I'm not sorry you did. #sorry. #notreally

Yesterday I had no meetings with my boss & I had a decent & productive day. Today, I have 2 meetings with him. Not looking forward to it. He is very demotivating, egotistical, & hypocritical. Not easy to deal with when fighting anxiety & depression. I actually used to like my job before I had to report to this guy.

Its very hard for me to find a job. I apply at places that have openings, then they tell me that they aren't hiring! The nerve of some people.

So I work with this guy who asks a million questions and never actually listens when you answer. I had a situation at work that I explained ahead of time since I worked out the issues and he went and made it worse. Tired of trying anymore & feeling unappreciated, I came home so nauseated.

If I have to sit through another meeting where I get mansplained to I might just rage quit my job. This, of course, is not an option. Advice?

In a preschool teacher and I'm in charge of making sure the teachers are doing their jobs, I work on the curriculum and I do many other things around the school to make sure the teachers stay on task. I finally realize why bosses get frustrated. Other teachers give excuses to why it's not done and all those wonderful excuses

Just started my new job. I'm at the cash register and there are so many buttons and I can never remember the menu but soon I'm gonna have to do it all w/out help from anyone. I'm sure I'll learn it, right? I mean loads of people have learned how to work with a confusing cash register

Missed my medicine all weekend. behind at work. panicky thoughts. Afraid of being reprimanded. Afraid that I am "a problem". Panic when bosses have meetings behind closed doors. Panicking because we are suddenly having an office meeting this morning

I hurt my back at work & am going through workers comp now. Luckily I have a good boss who is supportive. Unfortunately I also found out that my car needs $600 of work to run. I know workers comp pays 2/3 of my missed pay but I'm very anxious about the cost defect and about not being present to help out at the very small bakery I work at.
