Does anyone else ever get weird feelings about their day at work even though nothing went wrong but it was still mentally exhausting?

Has anyone here ever quit a job without having another lined up? I just put out my two week notice and I have job offer in place but I have no idea when I'll be starting. I done it in the past and it went well enough, but I'm kinda freaking out in this particular situation.

Started my new job as a cashier, I think it will be good for me, i deal with a lot of people so it may help me be less awkward around people

I lost my job not even 2 weeks ago and I was bummed cuz I thought I wouldn't be able to find another job anymore, but I went to a couple interviews and I think it's going to be just fine☺️

Every Sunday I get horrible anxiety that makes me physically sick just by thinking about the work week and all the things I need to do and should be doing. It's weird, though, because when I'm actually working I feel like I am "on stage" and "in character" (not literally, haha) and I don't feel anxious or unhappy at all. In fact, I enjoy it very much. It's just the time before and after work that I feel stressed, guilty, and overwhelmed. How can I break this cycle?

Being ignored and isolated at work is draining my energy. I have a lot more experience than my coworkers and the director has ignored me so that I don't have much work to do. I'm glad to be working and making money. I can't understand why they would hire a capable freelancer and choose not to utilize the extra help.

I hate my supervisor soo much she's an A-class bitch who is trying to sack me and intimidate me. All I do is turn up for work, work hard and try my best with everything I do but apparently my best is not good enough

Nightmares, intense vivid dreams, fear to the point of feeling sick to my stomach. All because I'm starting back at work tommorow

I hate my job. Customers are such a pain in the ass and I'm tired of them trying to argue with me. I want a better job where I don't feel like smacking every fucken asshole I encounter.

How does everyone else deal with that one person that you just can't stand at work? There's this one guy I work with super lazy doesn't do anything yet he thinks he's better than everyone and can tell people what to do. I got so mad at him today I had to walk away before I hit him and got fired. I'm hopefully getting a new job soon so I don't have to deal with him but until then it's going to be a challenge

I gave two weeks notice at my first professional job that I worked at for almost three and a half years. They're treating me like a criminal now. Management is icing me out, my coworkers don't wanna acknowledge me, and I gotta make it the next 9 work days.

I let a co-worker of mine know about my learning disability w math thinking she would be understanding.. instead she said "that's not good. Do you even know percentages? U weren't asked this @ ur interview? Ur going to get yelled at if u make a mistake." 1 week and a half in already cried at my job 🙃

Having a Crazy work load with high and unrealistic expectations is just an anxiety/panic attack waiting to happen!

I just want to cry when I get to work. Only a week into this new job & these people are putting a huge pressure on me to just somehow know everything after doing it one time.

It seem like giving my notice feel a lot like a break up. 🤧

I got a new job recently at a university. I thought this job was going to be amazing since I've always wanted to work at a university. However, I think I made a mistake. I'm so bored at work. I don't have anything to do. When I do have work, I'm able to finish it in 2 hours. I even find myself randomly clicking on the screen to make it seem as if I'm busy with work. Everyone else seems to be extremely busy but no one needs/wants help. I don't know what to do. I'm going crazy!!

One of the *assistant managers* told me to pull a skid onto the floor. I put it onto a cart so it was easier to move and less heavy lifting. She got so mad she wrote me up for insuborindation. Then today the *STORE BIG BOSS MANAGER* told me to put the boxes from the skid onto a cart to make it easier. Im so annoyed.

I recently changed jobs and joined a work group that includes one of my work friends. I knew that she was loud (and that annoys me), but I didn't think it would bother me too much. After about a month, I'm realizing she is very negative, and honestly complains about practically everything. Among a few other things, that's a main work stress right now.

My whole department went out for drinks tonight. I was deliberately snubbed. The director wouldn't even wait to sign my invoice before leaving early. My coworkers urged me to come anyway but I wouldn't have felt comfortable with that. I feel calm and confident that all will turn out well for me. I told one coworker that I won't get caught up in retaliation and hostility because then that's what I will attract. She was visibly upset for me.
