Work consumes my life a lot and I hate it

Today was rough. I woke up feeling overwhelmed, trapped, and pretty much worthless. Whenever anyone said something to me, I felt pained to force out some kind of response. I half-heartedly answered what questions I had to, couldn't pay attention to anything, ran into the bathroom to hold back tears for no apparent reason, and spent the whole day wishing I hadn't gotten out of bed.

I hate my current job with a passion and now that I finally have an interview my anxiety is making me feel so unworthy

I don't want to be here today. Minor from others are driving me crazy. I don't want to be surrounded by others. I just want to be alone.

My problem really doesn't fit here cuz I technically don't have a job. I'm 17. Looking left and right for a job before summer is over. My mom is giving me hell and back for not having one and I'm at the point where I don't even wanna eat cuz if I do she's looking at me like "put that back. You don't deserve it." I can't hangout I can't have fun. I have to get employed. And I'm sick of only doing applications. I'm starving for crying out loud. I can't bring myself to leave my own room.

I recently quit a high paying job because it pushed my anxiety to the brink. Now I'm a job seeker in a big city feeling miserable and like a huge failure

I gladly take a break from my stress and with positive distractions like the beach, and my fitness friends in yoga and Zumba today.

I can't hold a job. Anxiety and depression make it hard to leave my house. Retail isn't my thing, but if retail isn't what can be? Everyone needs or wants someone with costumer service skills and I belive I have that but not to anyone's standards. I don't feel I'm great at anything. I literally have no hobbies other than hiking but how am I supposed to make money off that? I'm so lost. What I used to love scares me now because of my anxiety. Without a job I feel more depressed..

I hate myself sometimes because I keep telling myself I should've seen this bug coming in my application even if I didn't work on that part, and now I fear I won't be able to meet the deadlines... I know rationally I'm not to blame for the setback, but I keep thinking that if I fail that task because of it it'll be completely my fault. Screw perfectionism...

I'm leaving behavioral mental health and going into child protective services. One stressful position into another. I'm very nervous and not sure I have the energy to stay positive. I'm a cancer patient and have a spinal cord disease/injury.

Today at work I made a couple mistakes and boy do I ever let it get to me. I feel like the worst person in the world...I over think every little thing I did and it goes on repeat in my head. I have the feeling I will start second guessing myself and I don't want my managers to look down on me:s ahh I'm driving myself crazy. I always take things to the extreme

I've always wanted to teach children in underperforming urban schools, but after a long, stressful emotionally draining year I have to leave. I'm conflicted because on one side I'm relieved to not be exposed to a harmful environment, but I'm depressed because it's something i put my heart into and everyone I know is doing well except me. I'm also nervous because u need to interview for new jobs and now I feel like ill fail there too. I'm tying to be optimistic and take it day by day.

My job involves driving around and it's roasting today. I don't have air con so I think I'm just getting over heated. I'm fine emotionally though.

I work in a nursery and my room leader is going on holiday for 2 weeks which means that I have to do all the work for the children as the apprentice isn't aloud to do planned activities, etc I'm so worried about it.

Another day, another meltdown. It didn't even happen when I was still at work this time. I was in the cinema watching a very attractive Chris Evans but then I started thinking about job interview next week and how I was sure what I was preparing for it was wrong and I would look like an idiot. Then I jst got so upset because until this week I thought I was dealing with it ok. I'd just like to know that someday I'll be able to handle a stressful situation without losing it.

Today was a really bad day. I was trying to prepare for a competency based interview for the new job in my work that's replacing the one I'm currently doing. I totally freaked out and panicked. I didn't understand what the particular competency meant let alone come up with examples of how I've done it. Managed to pull something together but it's not the best. I hate falling to pieces like that and feel I'm annoying people.

I'm on annual leave at the moment. Back on Monday. I'm so scared of going back to work. It really doesn't help my head
