Stress at Work

I took this day off, it was so good to be home and do nothing. But tomorrow I have to work, and I am a little sad about it. I don't like my job tok much. I wish I could stay at home forever.

Has anyone left a high paying, but stressful, job for something that paid less but made you happier? This is where I am right now. I keep telling myself and my husband that I want to do something I WANT to do instead of something I HAVE to do. I'm just afraid that if I find something that pays less, it'll be hard to make ends meet.

How do you handle the night before work anxiety? I don't mind my job but I've been suffering with panic and anxiety, last time I was at work I had a panic attack which I couldn't control, it was so intense I had to leave work that day & took the rest of the week off. It's time to go back tomorrow but I just have an awful worrying feeling in my tummy that I can't shift. It reminds me of when I was little and didn't want to go to school. I just want to hide under the covers until I'm better.

I am crying just thinking about having to go to work today. Everyday I wake up and I'm not sure how I'm going to make it through the day.

I am currently looking for a full time dental position.. I have my dental assisting certificate and am X-ray certified but the dental world is a little tough as people who work in it tend to be more judgemental and have higher standards. I just want to be able to give back to the world and I find great joy in helping people smile again.

Sometimes I need to set boundaries with co-workers and it's hard when you're someone who always needs to be liked

I'm going on a work trip tomorrow, and I can't stop thinking about how I'm not good enough. I'm a simple person from the suburbs going to a big city with beautiful people. No matter how well I dress, I always feel ugly and shrubby next to every other woman. Oh, and then sprinkled in, thoughts of being bad at my job.

I'm so stuck. I lost my job because they put me on the graveyard shift and I couldn't adjust my sleeping schedule. And everything else just seems to fall apart slowly. I'm trying to find positive steps to regaining control over everything. I at least get to spend some extra time with my cat <3

My job has a problem with my medical condition and it makes me feel like a burden and awful. But I also know I need to stand up for my safety, I don't want to die (life threatening medical problem). I feel like no one cares about me or my well being, like I don't matter to anyone.

I don't feel confortable teaching little kids, I always feel like I'm not doing a good job because I dont really understand how I'm supposed to behave. But I needed the job, and now I feel anxious and insecure all the time.

Sometimes I need to remember that your life, health and happiness should come first. Always, always first. Because everything that comes after- they are only small parts of your long and everchanging life. ❤

I was harshly disciplined at work even though I did nothing wrong. I'm passionate about my job and am tired of working for people who take me for granted.

I am so stressed out. Having a hard time calming down, even thought I have been home for over an hour. One of my coworkers is particularly horrible to me, because another coworker spread a lie about me. I am so angry, and ready to explode. I need a new job, but no one will hire me. I'm tired of not being good enough.

Today I made some changes at work. I felt confident enough to stand up and say no to my boss when she wanted me to do more than I am capable of during my work hours.

Tomorrow is my first day at my new job. I'm overwhelmed. Been out of work for 4 months after I quit my last job due to severe anxiety. I'm afraid. I don't want to fall into the same situation. It's an amazing opportunity but they already seem to have high expectations of me giving me two titles although I only applied for one. I want to show them I'm capable but all these negative thoughts keep creeping in making me think I'm not good enough for this job. I just want to be successful and happy

Been looking at new jobs recently. I work in retail and really love what I do. Problem is the workload is ever growing with less time to do the job. I don't want to move to another job but fear I will have to for my own wellbeing.

I'm miserable at my current job. Everyone is lazy and I'm expected to pick up the slack while they take multiple breaks a day. I wish I had the courage to stick up for myself and say no. I wish I had the courage to truly find a new job.
