Stress at Work

People say I work too much. Well sometimes, you need that distraction to maintain your sanity.

I need to find a way to balance work life and home life. I carry waaaay too much stress and anxiety home with me. I'm not sure why... I guess I just worry that I'm not doing enough and that if I don't worry about stuff, no one else will and then things will fall apart. And if THAT happens, I'll have to deal with the (worse) stress of dealing with the mess afterwards. People say "relax", but they aren't the ones in the hot seat if things go wrong!

I can't focus at work. I find it extremely hard to complete a task, it's like I'm stuck in a daydream for 8 hours.

I am at a new job after having the same job for 5 years. I thought it would be good for me to have a new job and do something different but I constantly feel like I'm going to fail. I feel like I will disappoint the manager and that I won't do everything right. I am coming from a job where I knew exactly how to do everything and I am worried I may have to quit because I spend even my days off worrying about what I did wrong.

Struggling to motivate myself after our first child. I need to work hard (main bread winner) but just think about being at home with my wife and boy all the time. I get home and realise I need to work even harder to maintain the lifestyle we have been accustomed to...going round in circles here!

Tomorrow is my last day. I'm nervous because customers are coming to see me to say good bye and I don't want the attention. I've been having intense panic attacks lately and I'm so afraid it will happen to me during work. I'm nervous

Just got a job as a charge nurse on a memory care unit. At training yesterday i had a panic attack and it was embarassing and made me feel small. As a nurse i should be able to handle the things i am seeing; i am expected to act a certain way. I start monday and i cannot stop thinking about if i can actually do this.

I have a lack of work to do at work and that makes me so anxious. I need to keep busy!

I think of ways to get out of a job before I've even done the interview. I need another part time job but I'm so scared to get one. I'm so afraid of change.

What motivates you guys to get to work on anxious days? My work really isn't a huge source of anxiety, but today I'm just feeling so sick and worried I'm not going in until much later.. But if I just push through, would that make it worse? Or go away faster..? Thoughts would be greatly appreciated

I want an entry-level job but I have so much anxiety in social situations and when I'm talking to employers. How can I be more confident? Can anyone relate?

I want to get a part time job so I can start saving for a car, college, and rainy days when I go to the mall with my friends. I don't want my mom to have to lend me money to do things with my friends because she works so hard as a single parent. But I'm afraid I can't et a job because I'm already juggling school, community service, pt, and hopefully sports again sometime soon. My mom says there's no need to work because I should focus on school, but even though she says this I still feel bad

I just lost my job due to back injuries where I can't complete my daily assigned tasks. I'm worried I'm going to lose my apartment and am having trouble finding a new job with the same wage.

So i have been having an issue with two conworkers. Male and female. The male is 6 yrs younger than i and for a while wanted to date me but i did not. I am now dating someone and since then, he has been diarepectful and spreading rumors about me. The female used to be a good friend (so i thought) and i came back from 1 week vacation and she no longer talks to me. So i mind my own business and do my work. Well these two have been talking about me but in an indirect way. I dont want to go to HR.

I don't want to deal with this one patient tomorrow. Everything he requests is against company policy. Such a pain, this one man. I'll make someone else perform his treatment.

I'm a workaholic. Work is my comfort zone. Things make sense there. I feel in control there. My boss (and friend) is pretty much the opposite. I feel like I'm always out working him, often my accident. He is really good at balancing home and work because he LIKES to be home. But for me Work is my home. Work is my family. I don't know how to be any other way. At least not yet.

I do not want to be stuck at the clinic tomorrow for 12 hours, dealing with my co-worker who cannot stick needles in her patients correctly, nor do I want to help her apply any gauze/tape!

I feel like my medication is making me more careless at work. I don't "feel down", but I sure feel STUPID. I can't seem to focus or prioritize even small tasks like emails properly anymore. I'm scared of the stupid mistakes I'm not catching myself making.

I have to talk to my boss tomorrow because I lost this badge to get me in the employee door. I'm terrified of being yelled at.

Work lately has been a struggle! Finishing at midnight for the Past 2 weeks after a long hard shift in a busy kitchen, then coming home unable to sleep because of my anxiety issues! Physically drained all the time
