Im so stressed and i feel like its hard to breath. I wanna cry and im not even sure why. I just feel like everything is my fault and that i should be in controll of what im doing and how im preforming, and im not in the controlled state i feel i should be in. I have too much to do and too little time. I feel like im going to fail and fall.

Today I stood up for myself with a department that have the biggest slopey shoulders and take no responsibility for their actions, told them about time they followed procedures and stop making things up and expecting other departments to do their jobs for them, it felt so good as usually I would just crack on with it, was quite proud ๐Ÿ˜„

Sometimes I think it must be so nice not to have to give yourself a pep talk to get yourself up in the morning and into work. I'm not asking to be deliriously happy all the time but i just wish I could get to a stage where I didn't dread work every day

I recently got laid off from my job. It was sudden and unexpected and I wasn't devastated or anything. I knew I would miss my job and my lovely team but I'd done so well in my previous job that I didn't think finding a new one would be difficult. It's been 2.5 months now and nothing is working. I don't know what I'm doing wrong but no one seems to want to hire me. It hurts real bad and I have severe anxiety now. I'm thankful for my husband. Without him, I don't know if I could manage at all.

Me and two other coworkers got fired today for a mistake (without a reprimand or warning), but I have an interview for a much better job on Wednesday! I could use some good vibes and good luck! I'm trying to think of this as an opportunity, not a pitfall.

I'm just really tired and constantly feeling anxious and overwhelmed. I hate my job already & this is my first year. I just wish sometimes that I could come home and relax after work, but I always have more work to do. I'm a first year teacher so I always have lesson planning & correcting to do. I don't want this to be the way the rest of my life is. I want to quit so badly but I only have about 2 months until this school year is over :( I just want a job I don't dread everyday.

I'm starting to feel like I don't want to go in work to the point that I get really stressed thinking about going in, the person in charge is throwing their weight around and picking at everything I do it's constant and so frustrating! ๐Ÿ˜ก

It's been harder and harder to go to work every morning. I need to find a job I at least like

I have a customer service position; my coworkers are awesome, but the customers can get on my nerves at times. Some of them really need to chill out or learn how to be respectful.

I am a teacher/coach applying for administrative positions. I keep interviewing and it seems to go well but then I hear nothing. Today's interview was different , I think. The principal walked me out and kept telling me how great it went. Felt good regardless of outcome.

Could not go to job today because of sadness and despair. Took a day off.

Work depression is really effecting me. I am not happy with my job, burnt out. Every time I take a step towards getting out and freeing myself life takes me two steps backwards. ๐Ÿ˜ž

I don't want to go into work tomorrow. I have to be alone around my boss who likes to tell me that I'm a terrible person and that I should be alone without any friends or people who care about me. Who's mood swings have caused me to have full blown panic attacks. Yet my GM does nothing. I am not looking forward to having another conversation with my GM about my boss tomorrow like planned. I'm going to have a panic attack and my GM is going to act like it is all in my head again.

Today I have to go to a meeting related to a project that really kicked off the worst anxiety and depression period I've had in years. Wish me luck!

The last few days of work I've been really struggling to keep it together.

I'm struggling in my job. I love it and for the most part it is a great job... but it's a stressful position and my depression really makes it hard... and now I have a coworker interfering. It's hard. Really hard.

Used to love my job now I dread every working day, I do sleep ins at work and had a massive panic attack one night(actually felt like I was going to die) so now I dread going and on sleep in days I can feel the tension & anxiety building all day then it's starts once I go to bed. I am trying to help myself through it I just hate the feeling when it starts and it's making me not want to go to work anymore๐Ÿ˜”

I've taken my first week off sick starting today in the job I've worked for 13 years and it's giving me anxiety.

Started a new job at the weekend absolutely loved it untill they told me there wasnt any guaranteed hours only if it was busy and there could be 6 weeks in between work . Feel really down now as i cant leave my current job and had to turn this one down. My current job is hell constantly belittled and made to feel worthless. Thought id finally found a way out but now im back to square one ๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜ข

I am not working right now, but in the last year, I have made a goal of increasing my volunteering as a stepping stone to going back to work, at least part-time. But I have physical as well as mental wellness issues, most notably arthritis in my knees. I have to work to one volunteer position next week - for 5 days in a row - and I'm worried that it will be too much for me. Cancelling plans or calling in sick to work used to be a big problem for me, so I don't want to start doing it again. ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

I work as a special ed aide and when I don't know how to explain something to a kid I feel like the dumbest person ever. Today I had to teach a student about density without any info about it to help me and I just failed and my supervisor saw and heard me fail. I'm totally embarrassed and beating myself and wondering why I didn't pay more attention in school.

I survived my phased return back to work and I should feel happy about that. Instead I'm feeling on edge - so many changes going on at work and trying to prepare for an interview for a new job but it's really hard. Then I start doubting whether I'm ready to take on a new job when I'm only just back at work after being off with stress and depression.... Does anyone else struggle with their thoughts just going round and round in a vicious loop?
