Stress at Work

I made a mistake at work today, but I kept working even though it upset me. I'm proud of myself, even though I still feel bad about the mistake.

How do you motivate yourself when you feel so tired and unmotivated to work?

I dread going to work, to a point in which I wish I get seriously sick so I can take some time off. I feel very stressed, pressured, and unappreciated. I'm already up for promotion, but now I'm not sure if I still want the position.😞

Had an anxiety attack at work Tuesday went home because I "had a migraine and stomachache" woke up this morning to another anxiety attack. Told my office manager and she understood and gave me tomorrow off. It's nice that she is helpful but I can't wait to find a new job. I like my coworkers and my office but the hours are killing me. I'm a dental hygienist and I work till 8pm most nights and work 6 days a week. Applied to a new job Monday really hoping they like me.

I have no friends. I don't talk to anyone nor does anyone talk to me. I am alone. I do talk to myself a little bit because I have become accustomed to it. I only discuss problems I am working on and how much people hate me, how much I hate myself, and generally put myself down.

My anxiety makes it inpossible for me to keep a job.. Some days I barely make it out of bed because I feel so depressed, which gives me even more anxiety. I feel so hopeless and useless I dont know what to do 😞

I'm about to start work right now and I am just not feeling good. A bunch of people that stress me out are working today and I had something happen that kind of made this place a little bit scarier. The fact that I have to be here and interact makes me feel trapped and even more scared. I'm feeling very anxious and I kinda wish it would go away.

So my dream job had an opening in my area but I'm worried that I don't have a good enough hold on my depression anxiety to commit myself to something that's so important to me. Uuuuugggghhh😧😵😠

A customer made a scene yelling and screaming at me and calling me fat. None of my coworkers or my supervisor tried to stick up for me or even tried to comfort me after. I feel so humiliated and powerless.

So tired of the favoritism my boss plays. I either cry at work or come home crying at least three times a week.

I am currently getting trained to be a supervisor and I'm so stressed out. I'm flattered about the promotion but I feel like I can't handle it with college and volunteering. I feel so dull inside. Like I have no feelings. I guess I am anxious though. I feel like my life is pointless. I feel like everything is a daydream.

I'm great at my job but my depression gets in the way

So work is really stressful for me, and it's taken me almost 3 weeks to work back up to working a full day post hospitilization. Today was my first full day back, and honestly I would be okay with it being my last day. I don't know what to do because my family really needs the money, but work completely empties me of all energy and emotion. All it really produces is anger, anxiety, and a huge need for sleep.

How do you try to interact with people who enjoy similar things to you but you have never spoken to, have worked there for a while, and rarely speak to anyone in the first place?

It's tough because life is tough. But you can succeed. You can grow - prove them wrong. Go get that promotion!

Can I just say that being hired unknowingly into a feud is stressful when you just are trying to get your footing. Got called in for speaking to one specific person on "the other side". Yes, he is a man, but he is literally the only one who introduced himself to me. If I need something I'm not going to say "hey, brunette in the bun, come help me", I'll address the person whose name is known to me. Sorry if that makes you mad, but maybe help a girl out 😡
