Okay, I guess I'll be the one to say it. No one should be allowed to loudly crunch chips in a quiet office. Chew with your mouth shut!

Starting a new job. Tomorrow is my first day. I'm terrified because I've worked so hard to be where I am. What if I mess up? I don't like feeling unprepared.

My company is planning to layoff some people, and we've been getting information about how this is going to happen and how many people it will affect slowly for the past four months. It's slow torture. Last week we found out just how many positions we're losing from our site and it's not a small number. I know, rationally, that I'll be fine one way or another. But this process has been brutal and it's giving me really negative feelings about a company that I used to think was awesome.

I'm a waitress with severe anxiety.. It is honestly the worst mix. But at the same time, it's made me understand that my anxiety is just in my head and I CAN do things!

My job is killing me at the moment. A few weeks ago I got landed with a big project & it wouldn't be that bad only I have been given zero help or support since, despite asking constantly for some. Only 16 days to go until the deadline & I am counting down the days. I feel like this is weighing me down & I just want it gone.

I just started work at an art store but everything has just been so overwhelming for me: it's my first job, the store is constantly understaffed and it's gigantic, constantly not knowing how to do things or where things are and talking to strangers it's so stressful for me. I also didn't have any orientation and close to no training whatsoever. I've really been thinking about quitting before I give in my bank info but I feel really ashamed for quitting so early when I should really have a job.

I really just want to work in a place with actual mature adults who spend less time complaining about or blaming each other so we can get our work done. What happened to all that teamwork bullcrap we all have to lie about on our resumes?

It's down to 1 month and a half till my wedding. I have a lot of meetings for my wedding and my boss couldn't care less she is being a pain. I ask in advance for days off or to work earlier or have someone cover me and she just doesn't budge. It makes it hard because the times my people have open is slim..It's either plan wedding or quit m job. It's annoying...Shouldn't be that way.

Today I handed in my resignation at my job working at a call centre and I do not intend to go back, yesterday I was treated awfully and was actually vomiting and quite literally pulling chunks of my hair out with anxiety and stress, I dont have another job to go to but I know that my mental health is more important than money. I am going to take my dog for a walk in the forrest, take in some fresh air and contemplate what to do next.

I burst into tears today in the work bathroom because of all the stress and my Super saw me. So embarrassed. But, we sat down and we are trying to come up with solutions to alleviate some issues. So, at least there was that. I hope she follows through with them.

I feel overwhelming lonely from graveyard working. I don't get to see family much, or friends at all. Just me and my thoughts.

I'm starting a new job on Monday after 3 months off with severe panic attacks & depression. I have suffered from anxiety & depression since my mums passing in 2011 & have struggled to stay longer than a year in a job since then due to my own dissatisfaction with certain roles but when I go for more responsible roles (which I'm capable of) the panic starts again, I also experienced work place bulling. I WANT to work so this building anxiety is crippling & so frustrating.

I work with children who have disabilities and this is my first year doing it. I have students that have behaviour problems and I'm not capable of handling them. I don't want to quit. But i dread waking up in the morning and I can't eat. I feel like a failure. I don't know what's wrong with me.

I have my first day of work tomorrow. It's my first job and I'm scared of messing up but I'm also excited to be working especially since I actually like the place

I'm submitting an application and doing a "test run"/interview at a coffee shop this morning. I'm really nervous that it won't go well.. I want this job so bad and I hope it goes well!

My boss keeps venting to me about how annoying the staff is etc. I never ask..she just comes to me and tells me these things. It's annoying to me because that's how the staff is too..they all talk about each other behind each others back. I just stay out of it..but it's annoying when they come to me to complain. If I do reply I say ..well have you talked to them about it? Idk what to do... I wish they would stop..I don't care about it!!!

Got a bad mark today because I made a silly mistake, everything will be fine and everything else about the activity was really positive and I was reassured I was doing a great job x

My coworker sneaks and creeps to try to scare me. I told him to stop but now it's to a point I can't even get my work done. I just get laighed at and no one backs me up. I don't even want to go back to my work station right now.

I've been selected as a finalist for my dream job. I go in tomorrow for a final observation. My anxiety is through the roof because every job before this has been miserably stressful/my time being unemployed is equally as wrenching. I just want a job that makes me happy & financial stability. I'm really trying to calm down & not overthink this. I know I have no control of the outcome but it just makes me so anxious that a big, potentially happy part of my future is going to be decided tomorrow.

Not looking forward to going to work tomorrow morning. It takes so much energy to put on my "I'm ok" face. I work in customer service by the way, taking care of other people problems. Go figure.

I just got a job interview for a place that's basically my dream job (aside from wanting to start my own business one day) and I'm so excited and nervous. I've blown off almost every interview because of my anxiety and depressive bipolar (untreated as of now) and fear and doubt that I won't get it and won't be able to save up to leave my relationship. But I know I am strong enough to leave I am strong enough to do this my way. I won't lose my voice. I am powerful. I am woman.

I work in health care, and my employer only seems to care about the bottom line. So what if one of my patients is dying and it's challenging for me - all management cares about is whether I've done the meaningless paperwork exactly the way they want. I hope karma comes back to bite them.

Working two jobs is going to be the death of me. I hate cutting my Hours even more but honestly I'm so stressed and anxious all the time.
