I’ve been out of work for a couple months due to mental & physical health problems. Going to start going back tomorrow! Excited but nervous! I miss making money and miss my coworkers.

I just learnt about the imposter syndrome. And I think that's what I'm going through. Anyone else going through something similar? How have you dealt with it?

I have a really stressful job that I hate, and I can't help thinking on a daily basis "What the hell am I doing here?" I feel trapped in an office, feeling all my dreams melt away.

I get paranoid so easily and I feel like my coworkers all hate me and that I’m not doing the best that they need me to be at work and I’m afraid that I could get fired at any given moment

I'm doing loads of overtime at work in attempt to stop myself thinking and exhaust myself enough so I can actually sleep at night. But it doesn't seem to be working

I hid a mistake I made at work instead of coming clean because I was embarrassed. I fixed as much as I could on my own. I was so stuck in my anxiety that I didn't think about the other people who would be inconvenienced by my omission of the truth. Long story short, my boss found out about the mistake and that I had deliberately withheld it. I was mortified, but I used coping skills to get through a situation that would have normally been a total breakdown. I'm getting better!

I love helping people, I've always worked in customer service and I get a high for making people happy. But my workplace is draining my energy and I feel like I'm stuck.

I’ve been so overwhelmed trying to handle school and work and I’m just so tired and at the same time I feel guilty about not being able to handle it because my school work isn’t that heavy but it’s just so much to wake up everyday and have to do my best till late at night I’m so exhausted

Today I was walking to get a drink in the cafe when all the sudden I started feeling so funny. My legs started shaking and arms and I was immediately taken over with fear and panic. I didn't think I could shake it so I spent the rest of the day at home. Do panic attacks come on out of the blue like this for anyone else??? I just feel alonez

While work stresses me out, it keeps me constantly busy. It's the down time I hate. That's when my anxiety and depression flare up.

I feel trapped at my job. I am a ticketed welder but I have an injured shoulder. They were kind to put me in the office so I can still make money. But now they refuse to let me back in the shop and I'm just doing mindless paperwork....I want to get another job but I don't know how I will do welding again because I haven't done it in a while. The office gives me so much anxiety and been depressed since they said they were going to keep me up there. So frustrating.

Got a deadline thrown at me with less than 24 to complete it. I tried contacting the person who has the info I need multiple times, but he hasn't gotten back to me. I am feeling like it's my fault and I could have done more, but I don't want to blow up this guy's phone. My coworkers are saying not to worry about the deadline since the actual event is so far away, but I still feel anxious. I don't want the person who set the deadline to think I'm incompetent.

I've actually just left a job which became unbearable due to anxiety and the relationships with people I worked with! Just secured a job that's starting in the new year and I'm so worried the same thing is going to happen again!! 😟😟😟😟

I hate my job but I'm actually trapped there until February. I can't leave because I won't find anything else that temporary and I need the money. Every day I go in my anxiety builds and builds, the thought of interacting with customers and coworkers makes me want to die. I just want to leave. I've got to go soon and I just constantly feel like I want to run away from everything but I can't. I want to escape this.

Thinking about trying a new position at work. I'm not sure if it'll be the best, but there's no harm at least taking a few first steps

I'm terrified of getting a job. I really need one and feel like I waited till too long to get one. Something about it sends me into a panic. I wish there was a way I could take baby steps into this one.

Getting frustrated with working for a company that does not function like an actual business. It's so backwards it isn't even funny anymore and it is causing my stress level and anxiety to be at a constant high :(
