Stress at Work

Do you ever look at people and just think if you don't shut up I'm going to lose it and smack you mouth.

I spoke at a meeting today. Even though my anxiety made my head feel like it was about to explode, I did it.

Being a social worker and helping people get through things I can barely get through myself makes me feel like a hypocrite.

I really want to get out of my current work situation, but the stress of finding a new job is just too much for me right now..

I start back to work Monday after a four month leave of absence. The work doesn't scare me so much, but I am afraid that my self care will fall off the deep end and my emotional state will follow shorty after. I'm not sure my marriage can handle me having another emotional breakdown. I just need to make sure I put myself before my job.

I got into a heated argument with a customer that my managers had to pull me off the floor. I didn't get in trouble or written up bc i was defending self but they still didn't condone my behavior bc I lost it. I'm not sorry though. That man is hella disrespectful, I ain't having it.

I'm on day two of my orientation at Lowe's and I already feel like an incompetent fool. This will continue. It has at every other job I've had.

I work in a retirement home, i love our residents and would do anything to protect them. But some of our cooks i feel like because they are higher in the job position feel as though they can take it out on me and the other dishwashers.

I was fighting panic attacks all day at work. I was constantly trying to shake the jitters out of my hands. Thank goodness for compassionate coworkers. I would have melted down, otherwise.

Every Sunday after 8pm I'm already thinking about how much I dislike Mondays.

Work has been draining me lately. My entire body hurts physically and mentally. Every day before work, I wake up at least two-three hours before I have to actually wake up and I have pretty intense anxiety. There is a lot of pressure on me to do well, which I know I succeed in doing, but it has taken a lot out of me. I feel like I'm working enough for three people sometimes. It's exhausting.

Just finished my first day at work following a month off sick after a bout of anxiety and stress. Relieved I got through it ok, and not as hard as i expected

I didn't feel like coming to work today; I just wanted to stay in my cave (home). I slowly got ready and made it to my desk at work. So much to do and there's only me to do it all. I just have to make to the end of the month and the light at the end of the tunnel.

Brain is mush today and I did not get done half of the stuff I planned to do... Spent way too much time following up on something that shouldn't have required any of my attention. Very fristrating.

You are not required to give any more details than "I wasn't feeling well". Maybe it was a panic attack or maybe you had bad cramps. The exact specifics are nobody's business. Remember that when you feel guilty about going back after calling in sick.

I always try my best at work and stress to make sure I'm doing a good job. The waiting game of moving up really has me impatient. Plus being short staffed... has made me very frustrated lately

Somedays i put all my effort into work but the constant mocking i get makes it feel like i havent done any work at all

I dont know what to do. My job is sucking every ounce of joy out of me. My manager constantly belittles me calls me stupid a liar and how replaceable i am. I cant cope anymore i can't complain to anyone about this bullying as she owns it. I cant quit as im the breadwinner of the family and there is no way we could cope without my wage. Ive applied for other jobs but got nowhere i feel like such a failure

I have an interview tomorrow and I feel sick and nervous about it due to my confidence being low as in my current job I am constantly disrespected, be-littled and ridiculed.

I finally told my boss that I didn't feel appreciated for the work that I do. It felt good to express, but also a little bad since I don't like to share my weakness with anyone outside of family. I'm not sure if it will change anything.
