Stress at Work

I quit my job today. I didn't give a two weeks notice which i know is very wrong. But I had enough. My job made me feel so bad about myself and that I was always doing something wrong. There were times i was so stressed I could hear customers talking but couldn't understand a single word they were saying. It was like they were speaking a different language and I felt hopeless. I know this was the right thing to do, just wish I could've done it better.

I really need to hear that it was ok for me to take a mental health day. I feel so guilty I’m nauseous.

To anyone with a work uniform that pisses you off: don't forget silly socks usually aren't mentioned. Take control where you can and you'd be surprised how the little slice of non-rebellion will cheer you up throughout the day.

I work my ass off harder than anyone else in my position and I ALWAYS put others first. And I just got called out for doing ONE TINY thing for myself which honestly affects no ones work schedule. In fact they seem to be forgetting that I’ve made s lot of past sacrifices for them and have screwed myself over because of it career wise. But god forbid you do one tiny thing that offends someone because THEYRE having a bad day, and they forget all you’ve done for them. do it for

I work freelance and sometimes, I feel like some of the projects I get are totally pointless and it really takes away my motivation. I just can’t get myself to get on with the work, I just want it to be over.

Please tell me I’m not the only one that feels life is a routine and everyone seems to follow society rules.. I just want to give up and say IM DONE

Thinking of calling out sick tomorrow, but I feel soooo guilty. Ugh. Why am I incapable of doing these “simple” things?

If mental health was treated like cancer my coworkers would rally to raise money to make sure I got well instead of humiliating me.

I just want to stay in bed and sleep, not go to work.

I wish people just listened to what my feelings about my job were versus telling me I shouldn’t feel a certain way because of x, y, z.

I feel like a complete failure. I've failed a pre-employment test...twice. They even let me do it a second time because they really wanted to hire me. Unfortunately I failed it the second time & they decided to not bring me in for an interview. I feel really dumb but I really tried my best.

I want to stay in bed all day and not leave the house that way I know I’m not being judged or bitched about

I have a job interview today for the first time in a while and I’m feeling really nervous.

Burnt out. I work hard but don’t play hard. I’m sitting at home pissed about work. I feel inadequate while feeling like I am giving it all I got and more. I am doing my best and I feel bad about myself

I feel like everyone depends on me at work, if it’s personal or business and when I need them they’re not there for me. I feel used and not appreciated and it makes me want to slip away more.

I'm a temp. Ive been at my current assignment for over a year. Over the summer I started having panic attacks at work and to the point I leave early. Its been that way since then and I rarely see a 40 hr check anymore. I started meditating on my breaks and it helps sometimes but it's still a struggle to do a full work week. I just wish I could identify what's causing this so I could fix it.

Sometimes I get really depressed at work. I sit at a desk all day, surrounded by cliquey girls, and for the most part patients are decent. I struggle though Bc I'm ready to go back to my old job; where my coworkers are amazing, there's never a dull moment and 12hrs goes by quicker than 8 hours. 🙇🏽‍♀️I'm just tired of not having anyone to really talk to

Sometimes my anxiety gets so bad that it is honestly better for me to be home than at work. When I'm at work and anxious, nothing ever gets done. I'm looking at my phone, picking at my nails or my mind is just running around in circles trying to figure out what I should even be working on.

Trying to get a day off at my job is so hard. No one is will to switch or cover for you and the boss doesn't care. I really don't know how long I'll last if I can't even have a personal day or vacation 😏😤😤😤

It’s so hard to be positive about life when you have work colleagues complaining about tiny things...ALL...THE...TIME!
