Stress at Work

I get angry at my coworkers that I feel judge me when I struggle. They don't know how much my depression affects me... they only see a small piece of a complicated puzzle.

I have social as well as some other general anxiety & I decided to be a teacher. I don't know if this was such a great idea. I only just started teaching in Sept. I'm not enjoying it & I worry I went to school for 6 years for a job I hate. Not sure if I should try again next year at a different school & maybe teaching a different subject or if I should look into doing something else. I've just started & I already dread going to work everyday. I'm extremely indecisive & worry about every decision

Leave it to a customer service job to make you feel like less than a person

Who else wakes up in morning and think about ways of not going to work? Including making yourself anxious or depressed to avoid it. And I kind of like my job.

Work has been quite stressful. Some managers like to bully employees

I always feel like I'm doing something wrong at work. I feel like a failure.

I want a job but Im so unmotivated to apply after weeks of no luck. I'm anxious to even start and to meet new people.

I'm worried that I won't be happy at any job as I've only been working at my current job for a year. I feel like I want to leave. It's silly cause I'm sorta comfortable working. The thought of searching for another job is terrifying.

I am taking on a new job and i am afraid of failure and not meeting my co workers expectations. I also care way too much about what others think of me. I want to quit before i even start.

I have an interview on Tuesday with a law firm for a secretarial position! It pays less than what I make now but hopefully it's not the soul-suck that my current job is. I also have an interview/test for a city government job next Monday!

It feels pointless being in school right now. It's not what I want. I already have my dream career waiting for me, but my classes are surprisingly in the way.

Not liking my job anymore. It's so hard to feel motivated to go. I can't leave cause I need the money. I feel lost.

I can't and don't want to deal with my current work anymore. I just want out.... I just feel like I don't even have the strength to resign let alone look for another job. Am beyond exhausted.

Thinking of leaving my current job. I didn't mind it at first because I really needed something to support myself. But now, the hours are getting more inconsistent, so is the pay. I don't think the stress working at a call centre is worth the pay and effort anymore. Just kind of worried I might get paid less than I do now if I work somewhere else.

I'm starting a new job in two weeks and feel quite nervous about meeting all my new coworkers and give good performances under anxiety and stress. Also nervous about loosing it into anxiety attack, like anytime i find myself in situations where i'm watched

I'm 36 been unemployed for 4 years, my depression and anxiety always makes it hard to find work, had interviews but no reply. Is it too late to turn my life around? I feel like a huge failure

Working in a call center is literally the worst as an introvert. I don't want to talk to people in general, let alone rude people! 😓

I'm worried/anxious because I do not know what I want to do with my life, job-wise. I feel like this prevents me from really trying to do anything.

Got another rejection for a job today. With each rejection my sense of self worth gets lower, and makes it even harder to get a job.

Having to go to work soon and getting out of bed is pretty impossible. I feel miserable today. I don't want to deal with people.

I'm unemployed right now, but when I had a job, I had the WORST anxiety and panick attacks of my life! I have ADHD so I couldn't count change as fast as my coworkers because I couldn't focus. I overanalyzed everything so when I had to sweep the floor at the end of the night, it took me ages because I was obsessed with picking up every speck of dirt. I also sometimes scanned the merchandise twice because I couldn't remember what I had and hadn't scanned already. I was so bad it was almost funny😂

I have been trying to impress my boss and coworkers. My therapist said, "They're already impressed with you. They hired you." I love that feedback. Now I'll focus on having fun with work and being of service.

Does it get easier answering phones at Target? Like I am honestly nervous and my anxiety is really bad. I hate talking on the walkie too. 😩
