I had an anxiety attack last night which left me feeling hopeless and mentally exhausted. Wanted to call in sick but didn't because I knew someone needed me. Then I come to work and I got moved to the OR! At least I'm doing something I love.❀

I've been having trouble getting out of bed lately, so I've missed a few days of work. I had planned on going in today, but let myself sleep in a bit. Got woke up by a call asking why I wasn't in the budget meeting. I had completely forgotten. Now, on top of the depression I am trying to dig myself out of, I feel ashamed for letting my work suffer.

I'm so incredibly anxious. Work is horrible. But I need the money and quitting is more stressful. I had a panic attack and wasn't even able to go in to change my sceduale the other day. I'm so scared of people sometimes.

If ever you have any doubt, leave your worries to God and he will guide your way. Always.

I was laid off last Friday. Worried now about job search. Yet so relieved the job ended: highly stressful call center job.

I am very stressed about my promotion. I have a big presentation & several interviews. I am tired of being away from home. I want this to be done & I want to spend time with my family & dog.

Got invited for my first job interview, it's day after tomorrow. Today I'm excited, tomorrow I will probably be freaking out. Either way I can't sleep.

Still feeling some stress from a patient I helped yesterday. Normally I don't get as impact but this one was different and brought up old childhood memories. I've seen some of the worst injuries as an EMT but this one is sticking with me longer than any before.

Please allow me to get through today, and I sometimes question what I do!

My work situation is becoming calmer but I can see it blowing up again soon, not because I am pessimistic but because I am realistic x

Another week in this job. Trying to write job applications but I can't get started. Find it hard to try and sell myself since I feel so shitty and like a failure

I got my first job and I start on Monday, but I'm really nervous and anxious. I hope I do good.

Sometimes you have to accept someone will never meet your standards but there is a fine line between being tolerant and being taken for an idiot, I am the former but unfortunately my boss is the latter x

Just hate seeing a store manager not capable with follow through. Everyone comes to me for almost everything and I have to solve it. Just dislike doing what I'm doing at the pay rate I have.

A girl I used to be friends with at work started creating drama between me and another co worker. She would down my relationship to another co worker then come and tell me it was the other girl saying it. Me and the other girl put two and two together and decided to not be her friend anymore. Now she's making it seem like we are bullying her because we won't associate with her on non-work related topics. It's causing all sorts of tension :/

I had my first day in a new role while reintegrating back to work. My first meeting went really bad and unexpected and I ended up crying at home for 2 hours afterwards.

I work two temp jobs and in the past week both of my bosses messed up on my schedule and blamed me. I cleared it up with both, and they both apologized, but it just felt ridiculous that it happened at both jobs. I actually know and have proof that it's not my fault, but I keep wallowing in it, feeling like I should have prevented it somehow. I'm having a hard time with blaming myself.
