Stress at Work

Found out by chance couple hours ago that Pacifica is looking for a developer in exactly the tech I'm specialized. And it's the kind of field that aligns with my purpose,using my talents to help others. I said that tomorrow I'm applying before going to bed, and I'm so enthusiastic since then that I can't sleep! Wish me luck!

Did my first legit "called in sick" move at work today. I was already late for work when I got out of the house and was 15 mins away when I thought... "Yeah... I don't want to go to work today." It wasn't in a whiny kind of way. It was a very lethargic feeling. And it stil feels that way.

Anxiety makes me awkward. Very awkward. It seems to make me introvert. On top of ADHD but with only the racing thoughts and hyper brain, not body. I'm not a easy person to read, and being "introverted" in a retail "extroverted" type job, is very difficult. I still don't fit in with any co workers. Can't have a normal conversation without feeling like I'm faking trying to talk to them. I hope I'm not the only one on this. Because I feel too different.

Looking for a new job is stressful especially when you have the credentials.

I have a particular problem I'm quite ashamed of where I struggle being happy for others in their success. It makes me feel upset with myself and quite narcissistic. For instance if my boyfriend gets a good grade, I'll feel threatened and annoyed by it, when really I want to be honestly congratulating him and able to experience it with him. I find it difficult to work through it and don't know how to really overcome the intense emotion that I feel

I deleted this app a while back ago, I thought I was doing ok, but my job brought me back. The level of anxiety, just never knowing what you're walking into is absurd. I never know what kind of mood my boss will be in or what kind of crap she will toss in my lap. It's nerve wracking, my heart races and I'm constantly on eggshells. Do one wrong thing and it's "are you stupid? What the f*** do you need to remember?" My stomach aches and heart is racing for tomorrow morning.

I'm terrified of not having a job. I only have me to depend on. I overwork and my job description has now quadrupled. After owning my own company for 10 years and losing it in the divorce, it took 4 years to get this job because I had no job history and I'm a victim of ageism. Having the for two years, gaining greater trust from my boss, I'm still riddled with anxiety even though nothing indicates my losing my job.

If procrastination was a person that person would be my best friend ever

I was let go from my job on Fri out of the blue with no prospects on the horizon. This is a convo I had wth my husband: Me (from left field): I should find a job as a yoga instructor (never done yoga in my life). The whole point of yoga is to not be stressed. Him: you're too high strung, you'd still be stressed. You'd be stressed that you weren't stressed. Me: .... He gets me.

I hate when I feel like I've messed up at work. Especially at the end of the day and I have to wait until tomorrow morning to see if my fears come true or not 😫

I can not stand the people at work who go out of their way to make you feel crap

Feeling like I'm not good enough in the cubicle life. I'm also hoping to change careers one say. Anyone else?

It's awful to think that my job was a good one before but now it's a drudgery. I don't want to go to work anymore but I have too because I need money... I hate this society.

They downsize, increase workload and reduce deadlines. I need to voice my concerns professionally and assertively - it's hard when you're suffering anxiety. How do people manage it?!

Looking for advice or just solidarity from any other freelance/self employed people - I struggle with anxiety, stress, low self esteem, loneliness because I work on my own almost all the time, have no one managing or being managed by me, and constantly anxious about how I can be working more. Procrastination and perfectionism is also part of it. Yes I chose this freedom but it is challenging and I know other people struggle too so let's talk about it?

It never fails. Every Monday morning I give myself an anxiety attack getting so worked up thinking about all of the tasks I have to accomplish during the work week.

I have a really hard time being a supervisor. I'm not used to telling people what to do and making sure they do it right. I know I have to... I want to learn but people just tend to walk all over me. I need to stand up for myself but it's hard when you've been treated so poorly in past jobs.

You can't always please people. Just make sure you are happy and with peace.

I am struggling so much in my job. I am working with people that hates me and disrespect me. They always notice the wrong in me and i am so sad bout that. I am so afraid to lose it because i am so in need these day... I can't be without it.

Technically unemployed, and I'm a hyperproductive person. Having a very difficult time maintaining self-worth in the job-hunting process...

I have recently injured myself at work and put myself out of action and have delayed my promotion because of it. I feel the pressure of working hard to get promoted then to have it taken away as I cannot physically do it right now. Feel so frustrated and wondering when the bad times will stop

I get anxiety the night before I'm have to go to work really bad. I work 12 hour shifts and I work tomorrow-Sunday and right now I would do anything to not have to go. I just feel so lonely and disconnected from the people I love and care about.

I started a new job this week and I love it. However I have had a few awkward newbie moments and now I am worried the people here think I'm stupid or annoying. I'm having trouble getting out of the anxiety loop. Any uplifting words of wisdom?
