Stress at Work

Today my boss got in my face for something I am 100% right about and I actually fear confrontation but I stood up for myself and told her my opinion and where I stand. She wasn’t hearing any of it, but I’m proud that I stood up for myself instead of just taking all the crap.

I cannot stand when someone else gets credit for my hard work or ideas. It really pisses me off.

Pretty sure my boss really dislikes me. Doesn’t matter how hard I work or how much impact I have.

I’m a manager at a very young age and the stress of my job is too much. I’m held to such high standards that I’m afraid if I mess up it will hinder my progress.

I’m currently unemployed and have a hard time finding a job. I get really nervous and tongue tied during interviews, which make me come across as “not energetic”, when I’m actually pretty outgoing. Plus, I can’t apply to various jobs because of my lack of experience..

As much as I love my job every day after I leave I feel so anxious and stressed, like I've done something wrong and all I want to do is fix it but there's actually nothing to fix. I did okay, maybe even good but I can't ever seem to fully convince myself of that.

This is my first ten hour shift since I started using Pacifica. It’s gonna be a real test of my dedication to wellness to make sure I apply everything I’ve picked up here and not get overwhelmed and overstimulated

I've been off work on sick for the past 2 weeks. I'm nervous about going back now.

i have no right to complain in comparaison to other people, but i feel like i’m drowning in my work. i have so much anxiety (i’ve always had bad social anxiety) but it’s been so much harder these past few weeks due to presentation and other stupid shit. all i want to do is stay home under my bed sheets and never talk to anyone ever again. my friends are all doing perfectly fine which makes me feel even more like a freak. i feel weak compare to everyone and i’m overall exhausted.

What do you guys do when it all just seems like too much? Like you never wanted this life and you feel like you don’t have control over what you want?

I realized that my manager micromanages and I’m starting to notice it more and more each day, especially with the new girl. I wish my manager would realize that we don’t need her reminding us to do things every 15 mins

Does anybody else stay up till past 2am because they dread work the next day? I hate the anxiety that I feel before work, during work and after work because I know I will have to do it all over again..I’m mentally exhausted

I just got a promotion. I know I should be happy but I feel like I am putting too much commitment into a job I do not care for, but I never went to college so I feel like it is the only job I deserve.

Lately, I’ve been butting heads with my boss in a sense & I always find myself feeling anxious/uncomfortable when she calls or is in the room. Can anyone talk me through this?

I have orientation for my first real job today... I'm so nervous but I think I'll do alright

Decided to ask for some personal time away from work to focus on school and my mental health, which has really suffered in the last few weeks. My manager was really sympathetic, but somehow I still feel like I should be stronger, that I should be able to handle work. I feel like I'm just being weak, even though logically I know that's not true.

Not being challenged enough or given new opportunities.

I work with students that carry a lot of emotional trauma and I’m worried I’ve completely burnt out. I have trouble feeling hopeful at work and have started to care less and less about my role. I plan on leaving the job at the end of the school year in June, but how do I stay grounded in the interim? Thoughts?

Oh man I just finished a phone interview an hour ago, and my body is still feeling so weird. It’s similar to how too much caffeine makes your stomach feel. I did well on the interview, but I still feel kinda sick. Anxiety problems...

Any ideas for concentrating at work when you're super anxious just after a break up and doubting yourself? Can't take my mind off it as my job is to listen to people's problems including relationship stuff

I was asked to join a network group full of really successful, lovely ladies. And I questioned why on earth they would ask ME to join? The low confidence in myself plus social anxiety meeting new people and then talking about myself - I wanted to have an excuse and not show up. I wanted to just vomit. But I forced myself to go... and I enjoyed it! And I realized I have so much to offer. Happy I took the opportunity!

We have such a backlog and nobody seems to care, not even my team leader. Falling behind on some of these assignments will affect people's financial situation. It stresses me out feeling like I'm the only one caring about those people and not only about the company making money...
