I leave later this week for a trip to Florida. And as much as I'm really excited, I'm scared that my manager is angry at me for needing so many days off. She said it wasn't a big deal, but I'm not the only one taking off, and I really like my job. I'm scared that she might fire me because of how much time I'm taking off.

My colleagues work with people with mental health problems and regularly say things like "they just don't want to get better" "they don't want help" "they just want to complain". I try to give a different view but they don't get it. I get so stressed that I dissociate. I'm working really hard to get better but it's hard. I either want to shout at them or start crying. I've just gone for a cigarette break on my own to calm down.

My job is bad for my mental health. I wish it was feasible to quit.

I have a new manager who is definitely trying to micromanage the team. And I can see the shift in morale. The team is so much more tense during meetings. I'm one of few who will speak up and argue about what's happening, and I'm afraid it could cost me my job.

I am on the same pay grade as the person sitting next me. I am currently supervising 7 people and making sure she does her work as well because other wise her toxic attitude impacts on my team. It's no wonder I'm tired.

3 ACA exams in 2 weeks time, stressed about failing as failure means losing my job. Starting to regret putting myself through the extra stress.

I am worried that when I find a job I will be to anxious or depressed to be able to keep it and show up every day

It's the oldest catch 22 in the book. I can't improve my situation unless I get a better job. I can't get a better job without a car. And I can't get a car until I get a better paying job. I can't seem to catch a break and I feel I will be stuck here in this vicious cycle forever.

I am a department manager for a large retail store and our store just happens to be a training academy; which we will be training assistant managers to other department mangers from 27 different stores. We have these audits every quarter and my department failed so I have to fix everything thing wrong on top of my daily routines with it being me by myself and on top of things I'm blamed for things that 2nd and thirds shift did. I really just want to quit the job and everything

The only time I wake up and feel great about going to work is when I know I'll be leaving in a month!

I've had the same job since 2013 and I love it, but I'm moving in August and am trying to find a job in my new town. It's SO frustrating and scary for me. I don't know if I'll be good enough for any of the jobs I apply for.

I'm the lowest of three managers at my retail store and they're all going through so much in their personal lives. I feel for them but having to make up for the work they missed plus dealing with their understandable negativity at work led to a return of my anxiety after three years of doing so well. 😭 Now I have to go back on my meds too.

I've been working at my job for over a year and it's been slowly going downhill. I used to love my job, but the lack of support from my co-workers, the constant attitude that I deal with on a daily basis, my co-workers always being late and me at times being blamed for my other co-workers problems has taken a toll on me. I feel so lost and no matter how much I do or how much I try to help out, it's never good enough... And I'm always having to constantly defend myself, when I'm on a team

It was proved to me again today that I have no support from my boss and although I don't want to leave it is the only option or a risk history repeating itself x

My boss has failed to support me when a volatile staff member was erratically shouting at me, my trust in him has now gone x

I forgot working a lot of overtime comes with a large price. And apparently I choose money over how I would feel physically and emotionally after. 🤑

I recently started a new job and love the work environment compared to my last job. But I am late practically everyday. I've been this way for years. Late assignments in college. Late for every job. I try not to be so hard on myself since I have so many negative things going on right now. But I have yet to learn how to fix this. I'm not lazy and it's not that I don't appreciate my job.

The job I want is the job many others want. I'm trying to stay level headed because I been experiencing a series of disappointment . I already got turned down for an entry level position in the company previously. I'm going to continue to look elsewhere

I cannot seem to find a job. No matter what I do, I always lose it to someone else. I'm scared I won't find one and I feel like a huge failure
