Anyone feeling like starting to develop memory issues due to anxiety? Like not focussing and forgetting simple things? I'm 30, so shouldn't be dementia! 😫

I walked out of my job last night (fast food) due to the lack of respect my coworkers showed me. Our general manager wasn't scheduled so the assistant manager was our shift leader last night and all of a sudden I'm being yelled at by four men twice my age for "not doing my job" but I had been working for five hours before and had three more to go and one completely felt the need to ridicule me and make incorrect accusations about me in front of other people and I just sobbed and said I quit.

My boss talks to me like I'm stupid. She takes herself too seriously and made me feel like I'm not good enough to do my job. But this year I'm going to stand up for myself and believe in myself more. I've worked hard to achieve my job and I won't let her make me feel inferior.

I'm afraid I'm never going to find a career that fits with my personality or I'm going to lose ambition and drive and settle for something I hate

I hate that any mistake made at work makes me feel so raw and stupid- like dead weight. I want to enjoy my job so much but's been a struggle

I just learned I might not get my monthly payment for January to February. I have so much to pay and now I'm very very scared. Anxiety levels rising.

Working retail while dealing with depression has been tough for me. I dislike asking people how they're doing and getting response like how are you back. I can't look in to their faces and tell your doing ok when I'm not ok and the can clearly see that. It's makes me want to cry everytime. Especially after being rejected for not being happy and energetic. It's just makes everything worse.

I don't like my job. I don't know what I want to do instead, I have ideas. I only know that this is not the right job for me and I am unhappy at my workplace. I have to change.

My boss is trying to make me rush work that absolutely cannot be rushed and it's driving me insane. I'm 99% sure I'm going to get fired because my boss is fucking bananas

My work is appreciated by the majority but it took one person to question my credibility and it drag me down in the hell of anxiety and panic attacks. Why do I focus on the bad?

I'm starting to feel like law isn't the path I want to follow, which sucks cause I always wanted to be a lawyer since I was little and now that I am working as a law clerk I feel like it's too stressful and that really frustrates me. I would love to be an author but what are the chances. Life amirite?

I got my BA but I've been second-guessing my career choice. Is it bad that I just want to find some part-time work to get by? I feel like people are judging me because I'm a college grad & can't find a "real job". I'm only 22 but I've been out of work for 3 months because my last job gave me major anxiety causing me to quit. Now I find myself stuck & sinking further into a depression. My savings are running low & I know it's time to fight myself out of this. I'm just not even sure where to begin

I hate my job and don't really have a career path yet. The only other I know how to do is sell vintage online. I really want to quit and that full time but I'm so scared I won't make enough money. I wish I would get fired so it forced me to do it

You deserve so much more than a shitty job. Please, move on. If everyone is doing that, the system collapse.

Okay I am going to vent for a second. If I can hold down a job and keep up, even with all my issues, there's no excuse for those who choose not to try. Earn your keep! Thanks, that's all.

I learned to sit in my corner and work not speaking to anybody until a break or lunch it has been stressful trying to prove I can do my job because of false accusation against me from a co worker I was demoted from supervisor to coordinator to reception in 4 months and being discipline and staying in my corner doing my job I got a promotion today a little bit of stress is gone away.

My job provides my spouse and I eith a garenteed income- great insurance and a living stipend. However it has given rise to depression anxiety suicidal ideation alcoholism and violence. The point of the job was to support my spouse - instead it is teraing our relationship apart. Mental health vs. financial stability. Why is this my choice???

Still cannot find a better job, although i try for 4-5 mounths. It's really hard to feel so useless. Just like there is no place for me at all, anywhere.
