Stress at Work

I get bullied at work. That's why I'm quitting this week. I feel so anxious. Please wish me luck.

Are people stressed out about bills and money as well?

Tomorrow is my first day at the new job, after I changed jobs 3 times in 2017. I really hope that this time it'll be ok, even though I know that the doctor I'll be working with doesn't like me because of my lack of experience... But I really hope everything will be ok...

I hate work. I hate Sundays. Turns me into a witch dreading the week.

I put in my notice today at work. This was truly a personal decision I had to make for myself, and knew I would not be happy in this job long term. One of my bosses attacked immediately upon notice, and I just don’t see it going well when I go in tomorrow. Feeling anxious and want to just be done, but know that is not the right thing to do.

My managment is soooo bad at communicating. It's the most frustrating thing about my job. I even go out of my way to ask if anything is different about the day and specifically asked for a list of duties or a job discription. Two weeks in and still no job description and constant surprises... 😓

I can’t even enjoy my sunday anymore - I am anxious the entire day because I know that I have to go to work tomorrow. It feels like time’s running and I’m stuck in this endless circle. Don’t know what to do.

I’m tired of fighting the haters.

So sick of working remedial jobs to make ends meet. Partially b/c the low pay, and partially b/c I'm bored out of my mind. I'm grateful for the job, but I am so ready to move on to a career.

Am I the only one who cry just because too much work and this is something you can't help it?

Management that doesn’t listen to their employees is stressful.

I found out Friday I will no longer have a job after this coming Tuesday. I had an intense panic attack, couldn’t breath, wanted to hide. Felt embarrassed and ashamed. But today after going through everything in my mind I know this is not the path I should be on, it was a very stressful job and I am actually relieved. I’m still anxious about having to find a job right away but at least I’m feeling hopeful now.

I'm sick of going there. Everytime I wake up and think I have to go back there makes me feel so anxious... I already had two panic attacks there. I really dont know what to do.

At work I have a colleague who is trying to get my manager fired. She has been at this for a month. It has got to the point to where she is rude to me and now she won’t even talk to me. Wich probably wouldn’t be that big of a deal to most people however in my job you don’t do a lot of anything. So you have a lot of time to talk. Today we went four hours without saying a word to each other.

I find it so hard to move past the people at work who dislike me and talk about me. I tend to obsess about what they think of me, instead of working with them when I have to and just generally doing the best job I can, without thinking about them at all.

I feel I would never be happy working. I am lost, I don’t know what I am supposed to do in life. I realised it is not about what are you doing but how are you doing it. How does it make you feel. I don’t have a purpose or a dream to accomplish anymore I only want to fit, to make people happy and to feel that I belong

I’ve had a wonderful break. Going back to work is making me feel tense and I worry that I won’t sleep enough or wake up on time. What if I go I to work and it’s crazy after the break?

I’m tired of never being able to call the shots at work. (I’m in a small performance group.) Every time I suggest something, my idea gets shot down. I don’t feel appreciated and taken for granted.

Ya know when you make a mistake at work, and you feel the anxiety build up, so you make another, and another until all you think you do is make a mistake. Then you “fix” it into something worse

I was doing so good at work and was about to be promoted until my anxiety and panic attacks got to me. Not only did she suggest me to take a medical leave bc I couldn’t keep it together but she promoted someone else who doesn’t have a license to do what we do and I’ve had mines since 2013. I’m happy for her bc she works hard to be promoted but it sucks when it was suppose to be me too and now I feel super crappy bc I have a lot more experience but someone else with no experience got promoted.

Anyone here who is really unhappy in their job? How do you deal with it? I am looking for a new one but it's hard to find one so in the meantime.. How do I find the motivation and the positive attitude to get out of bed in the morning, to make it so it's not so hard? I make it there most mornings but this morning, I just couldn't get myself out of bed and now I have to face this terrible feeling about it :(
