Stress at Work

I went to my job interview and tried my best and my best is all I can ask of myself.

I don’t want to go to work anymore. I feel stupid.

Applying for jobs is exhausting, there is so much stress. I don’t know how to keep working through it. It feels like there isn’t a place that would suit me.

When your forced to be the boss and still no one takes you seriously and when you put your foot down you are no longer a nice person and you now get to carry the guilt around that someone is now unhappy with you makes my anxiety go through the roof and then I’m lost

I recently graduated and haven't found a job, that makes me feel that I would not do anything with my life and I'm terrified of going to an interview, it's like a nightmare cycle

I love my job but have such a hard time getting out of bed in the morning. I don't know if it's depression or anxiety about the day but it is so frustrating =\

I finally got a teaching job I've been applying for since last year & now that I'm in, I can't stand it. First, they told me they didn't need me, but then a week into the class, they say they do, so I'm forced to scramble lesson plans together. Then, they constantly criticize me even though I received little training & was given no time to prepare for this class. It's causing me to second guess my skills which is making me an even worse teacher. My anxiety & depression has been horrible too.

I thought I was doing so much better so I took a huge step in my life and even my recovery. I went out of my comfort zone completely and got a job. I was doing so well until my ex fiancé told me he loved me after ghosting me and treating me like crap. My depression got super bad again and when I went to get up for work I couldn’t even get out of bed. I just didn’t have the energy or motivation to go to work and when I did work I cried in the bathroom on break. It was too much.

I hate my job and it is hard trying to change my attitude towards it. My coworkers pick on me and I constantly mess up because this specific office is not something I do well in. Man I want out, I’m tired of feeling embarrassed and shamed by my coworkers.

I’m so tired from working so much I feel like I can’t even function.

I need a new job. My current position has done everything it can for me and I'm constantly pep talking myself to come into work for the day. I cannot find the drive to apply for a new job - I think I am afraid of failure or that it will be more of the same.

Went to work to help reopen the store only to find we all got sent home by 2pm.... don’t know what’s going on or if we still have jobs. Right now, grateful I have a warm place, food and necessities for my son ! Fear over uncertainty is digging me, though.

I hope my job hires another person soon, we are really short staffed.

We are so understaffed that sometimes I have to work a few areas at once.

How do you deal with burnout? Every time I have to work I’m so anxious throughout the day that I’m absolutely burnt out & usually have a headache by the end of the day. I went from being a full time teacher to a substitute this year because I had a crappy time last year & wanted to move home. Now I spend my days worrying that it will always be like this & that I’ve spent 5 years working toward the wrong career. Thinking about doing this for the rest of my life makes me feel sad about the future

I have a really difficult, stressful week of work ahead of me and just woke up feeling so depressed and off my path in life

What really gets on my nerves is when I’m working like mad in work when everyone else sits and does nothing... then as soon as I stop they moan at me... fed up

I am in an apprenticeship and don't feel as I am progressing as I should. Keep getting bogged down in my failures. Anxiety lures me into depression and it is a fight to move forward.

I have an important deadline coming up but I'm awful at my job and feel like I'm going to exposed as the incompetent employee that I am. I try so hard but I don't think I'm cut out for this

Supervisor is racist. I'm tired of her targeting me. She's leaving in a couple weeks. I am trying to keep my head down until then. Everytime she asks me to meet with her I feel panicked almost immediately. I want these feelings of anxiety to go away. Every time I've met with her she's has something negative to say about me.

I've been off from work due to major depressive disorder, anxiety and PTSD. It's been such a struggle and only a few people I trust know that I'm not working right now. I don't want people to pity me or judge me, I want people to realize that I'm strong and that I'm doing what I need to do right now to get better. I do however feel terrified about returning to work although I am starting to miss it if that makes any sense?

I was enjoying my job. But now I’m finding it to be overwhelming. I know that I put too much pressure on myself. But I just want my employers to like me. I feel like a failure when I take time off because my mental health is terrible.

I love my job, but it's so hard to mentally clock out at the end of the day. I need help slowing down my brain and changing the subject of my thoughts.
