Stress at Work

Today was awful. I went to my car and cried twice. I'm so stressed out. Sometimes I feel like they made a mistake hiring me. I don't feel smart enough to do this job. Really low today.

I start my new job Monday, after months of being unemployed because of my anxiety. I feel good about it because i rarely have to interact with anyone. I'm trying to stay positive, so far its working .. Not working has made me feel useless, inadequate and like I'm a burden to my family. This is the first step in me gaining my independence. This HAS to workout !

My anxiety stops me from being able to function in a workplace. Social anxiety and my self confidence.

Bad atmosphere in workplace, has been since I started. Keeping an eye out for other jobs but there's nothing out there at the minute. The thought of going to work everyday makes me want to harm myself. Feel hopeless

I just graduated and am searching for a job that I will like and one that also pays enough for me to pay off my student loans. Fighting anxiety and really trying to put myself out there apply apply apply and just... Have faith. 🤞🏽

I just went to look for my first job, and even the thought of dealing with people at a register is terrifing to me. I feel like I'll freeze up and take too long...or just not be able to make it through a single job interview without messing something up

My manager told me I would get a $1 raise. Ive been here for numerous months and have been named the best employee by the District Manager. But i get paid $9 an hour and havent recieved my raise. Yet everyone else gets paid $10 an hour and I have to do all their jobs 😭

I got let go today for no reason & it made my anxiety & depression bad but I know I'm better than that because I was a great worker.

I messed up an exchange and i told my manager about after it all happened. She said its no big deal and that now I know but im always nervous customers will come back and all they do is yell to get their way. Im not good with confrontation...

Anybody have any tips for stress headaches?

I really dislike my job and want to find a new one. However, anxiety and depression make it very difficult to job search & interview. And, if I get a new job, it will make it very difficult to acclimate.

I have been off work for 5 weeks for psych care. I return Monday. I'm petrified. 10% of the time I think: you got this, you've returned before. Just use your coping skills. The other 90% of me says: who are you kidding? You can't do this, you can't do this, you can't do this. Help!

I don't feel valued at work. I work hard and have good results. It feels like everyone around me is patting each other on the back & looking down on me.

I can't even apply for a job because it makes me so anxious. How am I ever going to get one?

Last week I brought up an observation I made in a meeting then today in the meeting my co worker used my observation to make a suggestion for an idea and it pissed me off because she is stepping on my toes using me to make herself look good and score browny points and she won't even apologise or anything completely oblivious it's like she's taken the spot light away from me and it makes me look bad

It is so frustrating and sad that the place I experience the MOST mental health stigma is in my own work place - a mental health clinic. Hypocritical.

Why do I always feel like I am such a failure there. I turn up on my own, work my backside off and leave feeing like I've either done nothing or had everyone else's superb efforts surpass whatever I could have even thought of. I feel so useless there

Told my boss he made a shitty remark, but I probably should've put it differently. He asked me if I could work a little extra but I simply don't have time! I have stuff to do, but I also need a lot of me time at the moment. I was close to a burn out, 2 months back, and I need a lot of recharge time.

At work today I got a new role and it was stressful at the start because I was forced into a new role so quickly and when we were busy. But with some help I quickly got the hang of it all and managed to survive

The most difficult part of my day is getting showered and dressed once that's accomplished I'm ready to take on anything the day may bring

I'm not expecting to be jumping for joy at the thought of work on a Monday morning but I'm so tired of the feelings of misery, hopelessness and anxiety every time. I need out of there but no matter how hard I try I don't get anywhere. I don't know how much longer I can last in there.
