I led PT this morning for my leadership training. I was loud this time and no one made fun of me. Today's starting out pretty good. I'm just like 15 minutes late to class but I should be fine since I live farther from base than most corpsmen.

I stepped down from my job role this week. It's hurt as I love it but being bullied by other staff makes things difficult to cope. A break might just be what I need.

Heading back to work after a break for me is sometimes really hard. After giving my brain the chance to unpack and sort through things I feel like I'm about to go back to an environment that can be pressured and also on full view to lots of people. This anxiety can make me uneasy and sometimes a bit uncertain. Is this common or am I over reacting to a perfectly normal situation? Can other factors play a role in erratic behaviour in a lead up to change like this. Any advice welcome on here please

I'm overworked, overstressed and exhausted. My work place seems like a prison cell. Just need to breathe.

Today at work was a roller coaster. Got stressed and thoughtbboss blamed me for something not done then managed to feel better using this app. Then I got angry at lack of support, felt better then ended up crying in toilets. Trying to think though that I never gave up or trying the tools on here - that's progress right?

Hey everyone. I know we don't live in a fair world, and I know that sometimes (hell, a lot of the time) those who put in the hard work, day in, day out, don't get rewarded for it. I know this, and yet, I use my lack of material success as another tool to beat myself up with. I try my best, every moment of every day. I know this. But deep down I can't help but think 'I'm a failure. If I did work hard, I'd have something to show for it'. I hope everyone is having an ok day. Much love and respect.

Job interview tomorrow. I haven't gone onsite for an interview in 2 years--I'm nervous! The interview lasts 4 hours... I hope it passes by well and quickly. And if I suck at something, hopefully my interviewer will at least be nice about it.

I don't think I can handle the stress of my current job anymore, but don't have the finances available to quit. It's had such a negative impact on my mental health but I'm stuck.

My stomach was churning with anxiety at work but used techniques and this app to calm down. Getting bit edgy again already but I've not had much luck calming down at work before so still counting that as progress!

Haven't been able to work because doing anything, even fun, even just getting out of the house, its nearly impossible. Anyone else?

Sometimes I feel overwhelmed juggling work life & home life. I want a better balance. I feel there's a higher calling for me, but I'm in the "waiting room" until the right door opens. This stresses me sometimes, I feel as if I should be further along in my career than I am, although some may say I'm doing quite well. I feel I'm not living to my fullest potential, but yet I don't know what that next step is.

Actually I really enjoy my work. But I am trying to move away from perfectionism and learn to worry my brain down and do one thing at a time. I can see how work is fuelling anxious ways of doing things and I'm trying to be more mindful and pace myself. I've got something totally new and a bit intimidating coming up this week so we'll see how it goes.

Worn out. Toughed it out through a work week in which I felt anxious, depressed, and tired. However it wasn't all bad. At times during the week, I had some energy & more confidence than usual. Right now I feel like sleeping until Monday.

It sucks when everything is going great then you get that one customer who completely throws off your mood! It's frustrating but I can't let one person ruin my day, especially on Easter. I gotta let it go 😊

I am so over this job. I can deal with drama to an extent but this is an extreme. It is deteriorating my mental health.

My boss neglects what they are supposed to do and expects me to cover. I do it thinking I should just be grateful for my job, but am beginning to feel abused.

I called in sick at work recently. And for me it's so hard to do that based on past bad experiences. I spent 30 minutes having a full blown panic attack before calling. I phoned and they didn't seem to believe that I'm sick and were very rude. I ended up crying for a solid hour afterwards because I was so upset. I might as well go into work sick if I have to deal with that everytime. I have no support there. I'm close to leaving...

I can take 10 times more to finish a job I don't like. It makes me anxious and I can't go faster even when people get mad at me. I feel like I'm tied.

I used to be highly regarded at work. I got great reviews, was recognized by company leadership, and won awards. Last year, I reported to a sadistic manager that gave me a poor review and dragged my name through the mud. Leadership at my company has a short memory, and I no longer have a great reputation at work. Combined with depression and anxiety, my work environment is making me miserable. And it doesn't take much for me to get sucked into depression and/or anxiety...

This week has been two steps forward, one step back. Every time I think I've taken care of an issue that I've been working on for weeks another problems pops up.

I'm so lucky to have this opportunity but I can't help feeling anxious and overwhelmed, like I don't deserve it and I won't perform well. I wanted it to be so well put together, but instead I just have to show up and be myself and hope that I'm enough.

So it's official, my stress and anxiety are back. I know I'm over thinking/analyzing some changes at work and I'm making myself sick. I'm going to fight this, I just need to be strong!
