Stress at Work

After a year of stress and overwhelm, I've finally decided to look for work elsewhere. I'm even seriously considering changing job fields. It took me so long because I feared I'd never find anything better because of my autism, but I've grown confident enough to at least try.

It's been hard working from home, self discipline has always been impossible for me, but I have no choice until I fully recover or atleast get a little bit better. Making lists doesn't work, making schedules doesn't work, neither do rewards. I need to find something that works or I'll never be independent again.

Individual value isn't created by a dollar amount. It is created in the individual's mind. Even when one isn't validated or commended, value comes from them knowing they did their best. 👍

Work gives me bad anxiety I can't sleep at night. And I panic before I get there. Any tips to make it better?

The worst thing is when you do your best, put your blood on your work, and it seems that it's not enough... Nobody sees your efforts...

I was a claims investigator for 20 years. Lost my job due to depression and the lack of motivation that goes with it. I went through a 5 week outpatient program for depression and am feeling better. I need to find a job I want to go to but I am apprehensive about rejoining the workforce.

So today they published the list of people who got promoted. I knew yesterday I wouldn't be on it. But seeing it today was like getting the bad news all over again.

Living on commission is tough because you never know what you will make. It is also hard to create a budget.

I'm a writer. I feel anxious to finish my next novel. And I think always that the text is not good enough. I make the situation worst and the thoughts blocks me... to write. Any ideas how to solve? (English is not my mother-language)

I'm a special education teacher. I work in the highest level of restriction before hospitalization. I have chronic pain in my hip. I had to take medical leave but because I am newer I do not have enough saved up sick days to cover so I am no longer recieving pay checks. I can't go back until I can protect myself from the kids.

I am so burned out at my job, but I feel trapped by the processes it takes to get a new position.

I have been interviewing applicants all week for an opening in my department. It's so hard to know who to choose. I tend to think with my heart & want to reach out to those hard luck people and hope that they will appreciate the chance & be a perfect fit. I have had success & failure in doing this. I think I found the person our company needs today.... now I need to get my bosses approval for the salary he needs. Next week my work load doubles so I really need a decision to be made asap.

So I've been unemployed now since a little bit before Christmas and I am finding it extremely hard to find/keep a job. I'm getting desperate because I won't have rent after January. It's such a struggle and everyone in my life is hounding me about it, making my anxiety worse!

I am currently working at a temp agency as a temp employee and I've recently been "promoted" to trainer. The catch? I'm still a temp employee with no pay increase and I can't pay my bills.

I'm afraid of how my conversations that I've had with my boss solidify that I won't be hired back next year. I try so hard to not think about it or freak out, but it's so hard to stay motivated when the one person in charge of hiring you has not been very nice or collaborative whatsoever.

I have had a break from work but still have been stressed over it the whole time.

I really wish I could be more confident in school. I'm a trainee teacher and I do greet staff in the morning but when it comes to lunchtime, I get scared to make conversations with the teachers. I keep myself to myself but when I teach, I'm so vocal lol. How can I overcome this shyness around adults?

I finally graduated with a degree in accounting after going to school off and on for 10 years because of my bipolar and having two children. Now I'm completely exhausted and have no confidence I'll find a job after working this hard to get my degree after so long. 😔
