The feeling on a Sunday when you realise you have to go back to work tomorrow 😞 and the only reason you keep going is because you need the money to enjoy life.

Having a full blown anxiety attack on a Sunday because you have to go back to work on Monday. How do others cope with this?

I always have nightmares about work. I never feel good enough. So I feel like they will fire me or something. I hate it. It makes me resent working.

As an extremely introverted person, everyone at work thinks I'm weird, I never talk or when I do it comes out funny because I'm so not used to social situations. This makes me so depressed because everyone else is good friends with each other but they just ignore me. No one likes me.

I have never worked at a job where I feel so isolated. I moved to a small community and everyone is so uncaring. When I asked for help, I was informed it's not in their job description to help.

I finally applied for a promotion. I was very anxious about it because it's a lot of new, extra responsibilities. It's not that much more money either. The reason I want it though is because I want to challenge myself. I want to show myself that everything will be ok. I want to succeed, especially in a hard situation. I want to prove to myself that I am able and competent. That I can and that I will. I am nervous of course. Last time I tried, I had constant anxiety. This time will be different.

Work stress combined with my anxiety have caused me to be increasingly doubtful in my strengths and abilities. After 13 years in my industry you'd think it impossible. Thanks anxiety.

I made it through the first day back at work on phased return. It wasn't easy but i made it!

Woke up worried about work. Reframed and felt much better. Need to remember I don't have a crystal ball.

Been working 6 day weeks for months. Really exhausted. Finally hired someone so now I have to train her so I can take a weekend off. A light at the end of the tunnel.

Work has me so stressed that I had to take a personal day tomorrow.

What do you do when you just feel overwhelmed by everything? And every little task seems like it too much to handle and your scared you might make a mistake or that you already made a mistake that might bite you later... i cant take it anymore

Go back to work tomorrow after 2 months absence with stress and depression. Already not sleeping at the thought of it. Wish me luck!

Does anyone have any tips for coping with a toxic employer? I'm introverted (INFJ) and a HSP. My boss is condescending, patronising, belittling, he throws tantrums and dumps all his stress on our shoulders, just an all round sociopath I've been dealing with for nearly three years. I've gone past the point of desperation and just want to escape but I don't see that happening until I get career in the arts going. Currently experiencing some awful depression, I'm usually prone to anxiety.

I just want people I work with actually care to work and not leave it all for me to do. I'm tired of catching up and never getting ahead.

Just had an interview and naturally my overly anxious ass is mulling over if I did good enough. I think I did *ok* but it still seems too hard to tell. *fingers crossed*

Does anybody else work evening shift and feel like it is making their life miserable? I wake up and already dread going to work (I am a new nurse) to the point where I can't get out of bed and I oversleep. I try to keep my mind off work by going to the gym, running errands, etc. but I rarely have time to finish everything, which adds stress. I get out of work, often not until 1 am, go to bed, and repeat. I have no life because of work and I am so lonely. Staying positive the best I can.

I learned something today. Never answer emails/boss messages in the morning while having breakfast. It will definitely ruin your whole day.

Trying to not stress out and know I am not perfect. Why do I feel the anxiety and judgement so intensely?

being understaffed at work and not feeling like I have the support of management really sucks. I know they cant do anything staffing wise but atleast being there for us would be nice.

I unfortunately have to work a part time job, while attending nursing school which is the hardest thing I've ever done

Working in hospitality with shitty rude costumers and no breaks and long shifts ... enough said

I keep thinking that I should take extra shifts to earn more money but in reality I need the time off to get in a better head space. I've never been so depressed in my life and I'm exhausted.
