Stress at Work

I Lead my first professional development meeting today.. I bombed and my anxiety was very apparent to my coworkers. Proud of myself for trying but now I can't help but feel incompetent.

Working in retail drains you. There are quite a few of, and I don't want to sound mean, idiots.

I'm always dreading going to work and doing the work itself. I really need the money but it makes me unhappy.

Not so much a post about work stress as it is about a weight being lifted off my chest at work. I recently received a promotion and my boss fired "that-person" who is always calling in sick; which caused me to do three [17 Hour] shifts during the holidays and on Christmas Eve. I feel happier knowing that I'll soon be doing a more "important" job for my boss and that I won't have to fear seeing "work is calling" on my phone anymore.

I work as a customer assistant in retail. Sometimes my anxiety gets so bad that I have to hide in the fitting rooms and I just begin to cry. I hate doing it at work, but some customers get annoyed at me for tiny things, such as if I don't fold their clothes how they would like it to be. I'm meant to have a permanent smile plastered on my face but it gets too much for me a lot of the time and I end up just hiding even though I know it's wrong for me to

I've read in the Tao te Ching about this idea that we must do our work and then step back, allowing things to go their own way and detaching from approval. It's something to work toward when it comes to work-sometimes the pressures put on us are external, but whether we accept them is up to us. It's difficult, but we must remember to do our best and then let go. Health and serenity are more important than "success."

I've been trying to look for a new job. I feel my colleagues are talking about me behind my back, as I have witnessed them doing it about each other. I have worked in the same place for over a year now and still don't feel comfortable there. I want to go back and finish college but it seems impossible!

Bitch co-worker of mine complimented my eye makeup so I told her it was the Kylie Jenner pallet cause we had talked about it before. Her response? "Uh I didn't ask. I don't care." Choke on your coffee ๐Ÿ˜’

I always freak out before having to go to work. I end up pushing myself to go, and then once I'm there talking to customers I start to feel better

My anxiety started to get worst some weeks ago! I now not sure if I can continue with my career, as I now tend to have a panic attack whenever I am on a meeting with someone in my office! How do I get around this? It's so hard to control! And I've workerd so hard for my current position! I'm devastated! I don't even feel like going to work!

Back to work today after 9 days off. I had massive anxiety this morning before I even woke up. I had dreamt I was sick at work (which is what triggered my anxiety back up) and had to come in early because my bosses kid is sick :( I'm an hour in now and doing okay (I only have 3 kids) but I'm anxious about the rest of the day

Work has become so ridiculously stressful that it impacting my sleep. And my health. I'm having incredibly anxious feelings just at the thought of going back to the office tomorrow.

I'm afraid to go back to work because I got cold and my voice isn't good at all. I'd like to stay at home until I'll be alright, but I can't

Had a panic attack at work today for no reason. I'm came out of no where. Maybe It's because I'm a perfectionist and I work on deadlines. But I thrive on the business and the workload. It keeps me distracted and focused. But there are moments when my mind wanders and I begin to feel anxious about everything. And how there's not enough time in the day. And I think about all I have to do when I get home. All the unfinished work. Then I get stressed. Being a perfectionist is good & bad. A struggle.

I am dreading going back to work on Thursday after 14 days off. My anxiety and blood pressure are out the roof. I wish I could simply live in the "present" for the next two days and enjoy the time off.

Looking for a new job so I can leave one I don't like very much, but I don't have a college degree. It makes me superbly angry that in my years and years of experience, all that matters is not having a (in my opinion) silly and expensive piece of paper.

I have been working from home for about 2 years, but I'm thinking about going back to the office a few days a week. I love the freedom of working from home, but I'm not very productive for work and I barely ever get out of my apartment. I can't stop thinking about this decision.

I cant hold a job because my anxiety gets so bad, I can't pull myself out of it. I need a place who understands and can encourage me. I love working, feeling productive, and feeling accomplished.
