Stress at Work

I dropped out of student teaching today. I know it sounds like a mistake, but I think it was a great decision. I've been apprehensive about continuing my teaching degree for a few semesters now. I continued the degree because I thought that's what everyone wanted me to do. Today, after 3 days of anxiety so severe that I couldn't eat, I spoke with my family about it. They were amazing!. I now have a new plan for the future that I feel confident in. I feel like I can breathe again!

I work in the mental health field and feel guilty and ashamed when my own mental health is poor because I'm in a position where people look up to me. I feel like I should have it all together but I just don't right now

I have so much work to do, but I want so much to relax. So I do nothing and feel so bad about it

I get yelled at at work for things that everybody else does too 😞 why is it only me that gets in trouble?

I brought two plants to work to help me destress. The spider plant purifies the air and the bonsai just looks good.

Supposed to be leaving for work in 15 minutes for my first day back. I just can't do it. The panic at the idea of going is so intense. I know I shouldn't, but I feel so disappointed in myself and angry that I can't just go. I'm scared that if I go I'm just going to end up back off again because I don't feel ready, but I had 5 weeks off at the beginning of last year because of my anxiety/depression, I feel like my work should be getting sick of it. I feel like I should be able to do more.

When you realize that no one actually cares when you talk about your job. I don't know why I try. I guess I'll just keep it to myself.

My office manager is the biggest bitch I've ever met in my life. I was told she's the reason many people quit & at first didn't believe it but now it's taking a lot to not just walk out of this damn job.

I like my job because I finally feel like I have a purpose, but I can't see myself doing it forever. I get anxious when I think of leaving.

I'm starting a new job in a field I've never worked in. I'm scared I won't be able to handle the stress or the workload

Workplace chaos has everything in overdrive. I am annoyed faster and frustrated. Priorities are different. Focus is nonexistent. I am trying best to do my best. I can tell I am draining energy from others.

On Monday I will find out if they are going to extend my contract, and I had a few slip ups recently... Even though boss said that he wants me to keep working there the stress is getting to the point of physical discomfort & pain...

In the final leg of my Ph.D. and I'm feeling less motivated than I have in the past 4 years. Uncertainties in the next steps after school are also making me feel anxious and stressed. Part of me even believes I don't deserve my doctorate and that I'm too stupid to have come this far.

I want a new job but I don't feel good enough. I get by here. I want to be challenged but I'm scared I won't be good enough to succeed if challenged.

I work for a marketing company that will not be named. However, it's strictly commission-based and its stresses me out. It makes my anxiety and depression skyrocket, everything built up and I relapsed Wednesday night.. it's not good for me.

I think I'm going to officially give my two weeks notice. I've been putting it off for a while but I'm just finding life to be far to stressful for me to keep this job. I'm nervous that they will be mad at me and I'm scared that I'll loose all my relationships.

I've been slowly realizing how much more affected by my last graduate advisor I was than I realized. I'm having to constantly remind myself that I know the people in my current program, and that their actions aren't motivated by ulterior motives or greed. that they are genuinely happy to see me and not going to wring me out until I have no drive left.

So, today I discovered I need to learn Italian quickly because of my work. I’m freaking out. I know other languages but all the documents I need to translate were written by Italians and I don’t understand a word. I’m anxious and stressed because I don’t have enough time to study a new language right now. I downloaded some apps to learn it from my phone, but i feel it's not enough. Do you guys have tips? Do you know good free apps or good online places to learn Italian? Please! Love you all

My boss doesn’t do her job. Ever. My best friend is getting promoted and I’m really hoping that the company will let me transfer to her store...

I was told I earned a promotion. My work changed their mind bc it is not in their budget. I can't stand what I do (customer service) and this promotion would've had me behind a computer like I want

In my work time I always thought that I am a loser

I have been the "suck it up" girl for years. It has gotten to the point where "sucking up" only makes things worse. Queue massive breakdowns at work and every morning before work. My Psychiatrist has pulled me from work with a "to be determined" timeframe. She won't even let me apply for new work. I have bills to pay, rent, gas... my stress has moved from one issue to another instead of ebbing...
