Stress at Work

Sunday again and the thought of working tomorrow creeps up on me. I feel like the weekends are to short.

I am not above calling in sick from the parking lot.

I hate when customers come at me with so much attitude I get so upset and anxious.

I feel anxiety Sunday nights about going back to work. I can't seem to get any stress relief, even after weekend trips away with my partner and family. I dream about clients and coworkers nightly....not sure what the answer is

I made it through work today. Proud of myself for remaining in a positive mindset.

I hate networking. It's so insincere and needy.

It’s so hard to try to put on a show everyday at work and just try to get through the days with severe depression. I don’t know how much longer I can hold on. Everyone knows and sympathizes when you have a cold and tells you to feel and get better. With depression you just suffer deeply in silence and are expected to work through it. Feeling defeated today.

Realising that we need to force ourselves to take time out. Mental health is fragile and switching off for 20 minutes daily is mandatory to our sanity.

Work - it makes me nervous thinking about it. I wish I didn't have to go or that I had a job I enjoyed more.

Apparently "Spite" is not an appropriate response to, "What motivates you?"

I've started a job a few months ago in a completely new field. I'm trying to learn as quickly as possible to keep up, but I often feel like a failure at the end of the day. My boss is someone who believes that everyone is stupid except her and is prone to set her colleagues up for failure. I don't know how much longer I can do this. My anxiety is getting the best of me. I try as hard as I can but can't seem to get things right.

It has been a stressful day. I ended the day in tears. My mind is still spinning. I'm harsh on myself over every little mistake and error I make. I constantly re-evaluate everything to the point where I can't sleep at night.

My main work stress is just getting out of bed and getting going. Does anyone else have just a horrible time with mornings? It’s not just wanting to stay in bed, it’s more like I just can’t bring myself to get up. Once I’m up I can’t get motivated, I can’t keep on track, and I end up losing track of time to the point where I can hardly get to work on time. I have multiple alarms set and it doesn’t help. Any tips?

right now my stress level is so high that I have to remind myself to breath every second. I try to think positive but honestly is hard.

Too many things to do at once burns my brain

To the girl at work who tried to throw me under the bus to make yourself look better- I’m on to you. I know your kind....karma sucks

After a near-death stress-caused mini-stroke, I've really had some life-changing insight on what I'm willing to give from myself to my job. Setting boundaries for myself and my own wellbeing is really hard, but now that I really have no option, it's kind of relieving too. Meditation and self-reflection have also helped, as well as medical help from doctors and healthcare professionals. I'm not ready to let work kill me with too many hours of dedication. It's just not worth it.

Dreading work tomorrow my boss always tries to be little me and gives me tasks which are setting me up to fail... I can't prove anything because her bullying is suttle and can be seen as firm managment according to HR

I’ve been sick for a few days and I have to go back to work tomorrow. I’m worried that people will be mad that I wasn’t there. I feel upset with myself for not going in anyways. September has been the worst month. I’m hoping October gets better.

Schedule is so hectic. No time to study, sleep, cook a meal. No time for me.
