Stress at Work

Trouble getting out of bed today. I could sleep forever

There’s a negative ambience developing at work. I’ve decided not to take part in a witch hunt that the heads of department are leading. I’m not checking the social media groups and I’m doing just my work. It’s not healthy but I’m trying to detach from their vibes, as much as I can. Have you had such a stressful experience? What do you do if you can’t quit?

I don’t know how I’m supposed to go into work and actually feel passionate. I dread each day.

Just heard back about my dream job interview! Didn't get it but I'm praying that there's more for me out there. Maybe this wasn't in my destiny to get it. Maybe there's something more out there for me. Trusting in God and the universe.

I'm still new to my job and I feel like no one has any patience with me. They say "there are no stupid questions" but all of my questions are really stupid. I can't help but feel like they roll their eyes when I ask them for help with anything. I'm really trying my hardest to learn and do my best and I don't want them to think I'm an idiot...

Love what I do and how I impact others. Have not had as much of that positive aspect of lately. But wish I didn't have all the crappy politics that go along with work.

I don't even feel like I can share my work stress semi anonymously ! That's how bad it is.

Is anyone experiencing this too?? Guys, I’m experiencing straight up burnout. I’ve read the articles and this is burnout. It’s not depression and it’s not that I hate what I do. But my loss of desire to work and my want to isolate myself has me questioning what I can do to make a change and enjoy myself again. I’m stuck in this cycle and role of high responsibilities until May. I need a mini vacation and it’s just not possible.

I’ve only had my second day of work today and I want to be really really impressive and good to the people training me and to my boss. Even though they’re all wonderful people, I always feel like I’m doing everything all wrong even though I know it’s the opposite. I feel like I’m the awkward one too, who isn’t quite sure how to talk with the others yet, despite most of them being friends from school. 😓

Is it just me or are there some people you just can’t seem to communicate with? Their jagged personality just cuts me right to my anxious core and makes me feel like I’m the least valuable member of the team. After twenty minutes of being berated for having the audacity to ask what they have in storage I left and sat in my cubicle for what seemed like ages trying to calm myself down and stop the tears. The social situations meditation helped me immensely.

I put my notice in today at the job I absolutely hate. I feel better but also a bit worried that I still have to work there for a month.

I have a phone interview first thing tomorrow morning and I couldn’t be more scared. I took the steps to prepare for questions I might need to answer, but I am scared that my physical symptoms of anxiety will make me choke in the moment. And I’m in this rabbit hole of wondering what if I mess up in 100 different ways.

I have a new found respect for people in costumer service and food industry. Sometimes customers can be a little too much.

It was super busy and I was working with the new guy who still needs a little help doing things and (I’m a busser) I was trying to keep the salad bar clean and full, clean tables, do dishes, help customers, take out food, and help with anying the waitress needed and I started having a panic attack bc I was so overwhelmed. Which this might seem like nothing to so,e but for me work was super stressful this is my first real job.

Just screwed up and sent the wrong letter to a client. Had a huge panic - but everyone makes mistakes. I just wish I knew how to shake them off

I have been getting the worst, most painful stomachaches whole at work since starting my new job. They are violently painful, and no doubt from stress. On top of everything else, it’s becoming impossible to wake up in the morning knowing I have to face that place. I don’t know how to go on.
