Stress at Work

So I talked to my mom about my thoughts and feelings about going jobless and she said she's completely okay with me not having a job:') she said she just wanted me to have a summer job! she wants me to give this job some time like a month or so to see if I like it or not and go from there. I'm just happy she's so understanding I'm so thankful!

My bosses are the nastiest people. We have a very high turn over of staff because people keep quitting working here. I want to quit so bad but I can't afford to not have a job and I worry if I leave this industry it will be hell to get back into it. I feel trapped and I feel my bosses are now at workplace bullying level with me. I feel like life is endless depression and anxiety at the moment and sometimes when driving home I start thinking why don't I do everyone a favour and remove myself.

Breathe in, breathe out. This is just work.

Every day when I have to go to my job is ruined for me.

I got a new job, been.tyere about a month, and just can't seem to feel like I belong. I'm way out of my element socially. The work is fine, but I can't find friends. :/

My supervisor is a nitpicker and emails me often about things she could have figured out by reading my previous notes.

Any tips to control panic attacks in the morning? I feel so bad everyday when I have to go to work.

I'm a fairly young female officer in the US Security Force. Men tend to hit on me a lot and underestimate my authority and strength. It's causing me to want to relocate because men are commenting on my hair style "to let it down, rather than have it tied up." And as a lot of you may know, we militia, police and security have to have a certain attire and appearance. So I'm getting annoyed because even when I put my foot down, these young men still act like teenagers.

Girls at my work are nice. I just don't have much to share and I'm more just in a work mode. I feel like when we do talk I come off awkward and it drives me nuts.

How do you not let rejection get to you? I knew I wasn't going to do well, because I was just interviewing for experience, but rejections even from companies I don't really want to work at hurt!

I work for my family and for some reason they can't see the value I could add to the company. It's so hard a frustrating. If I could go back, I would never have done this.

my boss is terribly cruel and has no compassion for anyone. he is condescending and doesn't care that i am only missing work due to the fact my partner is in the hospital due to a suicide attempt. i'm exhausted and very hurt and i just need to not work right now, but i have no money. i'm barely keeping it together.

I work in fast food. If you've never worked in fast food, you have no idea how crazy it can get. Now it's called 'fast' food for a reason. We have to multitask and sometimes due to our short staff, we get stuck with doing just about everything from handing out orders through the drive through, making fries, bagging food and making coffee. Basically what I'm trying to say is that it's so hard when you work your butt off just to get fussed at by a costumer.

I want to quit my job. I don't want to spend my days working and letting time drift away from me. It's not that I hate the job, because I've began to not hate it as much as I used to, it's just I don't want to work. I don't really have a choice because I know it's life and I know it's a responsible thing to do, but I just feel so stuck in life right now. I don't know what I'm going after I just feel stuck and I feel like I'm drowning. I hope my life gets better soon, I really hope it does.

I take escalation calls for a mobile phone company, and I currently make minimum wage. It's hard taking verbal abuse from people and staying on the line, mostly for mistakes I didn't make. But I'm working on finding a different job, and eventually hope to become an electrician.

Good news: I'm succeeding with flying colors at my job. Bad news: coworker is actively sabotaging me for her own gain. How in the blue heck does one deal with this?

I've just started a new job and I'm worried it will take me a while to get the hang of something and my boss might not want me there anymore

My boss told me yesterday they're creating a new part time position for our department. He wanted to talk to me about it first since he was concerned I might be upset... I asked to become full time 6 months ago. I guess it didn't really hit me how upset I am about it until today. I'm not mad, not really... Just tired. Tired of trying to get ahead when it's this impossible.

I really don't like going to my job because of my social anxiety. I guess it it wasn't for that would somewhat like it. But I close myself off and I become a different person at work with my coworkers and the crazy thing is I can't open up to them and it's been more than a year and I'm still the awkward person. It sucks because I'm not that person at all when I'm home.. and now it's affecting my life at home because I'm becoming depressed from it too.
