I wish I could stop worrying about doing a good job. I worry that I will make mistakes. I am always more acceptable of other people not being perfect but put too much pressure on myself all the time.

Feeling frustrated with rude and stressful co-workers. I always leave work angry after working with certain people. I am trying to not let it get to me but it is difficult.

I get such severe anxiety about work and overthink things over and over, worrying that I’ve made bad mistakes. It probably stems from a bad mistake I made in my first professional job and I haven’t recovered since. I feel pressure to have a good job but I’m thinking I need to take a step back and do something that I don’t have to worry about when I’m home. Any suggestions for how to deal with such bad anxiety, or for jobs with minimal stress?

Went from one good salary job to 5 part time jobs and still not even in the same tax bracket. My car was repo’ed, just paid over $1000 to get that out. Then comes about $1000 worth of tickets. Every time I make efforts to not focus on money, it draws me to it. Money was no object at one point, now it’s the main focus of my life & I hate it

So stressed about this work week. I’m injured and can’t do all of my job and people are making me feel terrible about it. I hate this. It was a work related injury too. I get no support. I feel so angry

I'm exhausted and stressed about life but I'm still going in to work night shift; got to work to eat got to eat to live. Things will get better.

Frustrating and nerve racking how long the hiring process can be

I am an introvert working at a grocery store. People get so crabby if you don’t have their specific kind If milk or happen to be out of a produce sale item an hour before close after a huge snow storm. Oh my goodness, other people shop here too. I can’t save your favorites in the back until you maybe someday show up. Let me just go run and grow you some organic tomatoes lady.

I need SERIOUS advice. Work stress is through my roof - my boss came onto me two days ago. He touced my leg and tried to kiss me. I haven’t been back since. I can’t even handle the idea of looking at him. I can’t handle the idea of going to HR because....I don’t know I’m terrified. I’m an anxious terrified mess. I don’t know what to do or how to handle it.

I’m 25 and get bullied at work.. sounds a little ridiculous granted we’re not teenagers anymore. But it’s the professional kind of bullying.. when people belittle you and your work. How do you handle that? Especially if it comes from management positions..

My business is not doing well. It is my passion hence why I left my previous career. I like to find a job to sustain it. And I know that I can work really hard. But I cant find any job opportunity. Im really stressed right now..

My job fired me today. I have major depression. These past two weeks have been tough on me with work stress and feeling like me job needs me to get better overnight. Gave me anxiety and no motivation to go to work. Missed a few days. And now they fired me even though they knew that I was struggling to get better. But I just felt like they didn’t understand what I was dealing with. Now I don’t know how I am going to get another job?! Who will hire me now?

I work in a very stressful hospital environment but after my review today I feel so rewarded for my hard work.

I really just don't like the girls I work with. They're really weird. They don't talk to each other or anyone. I've tried to talk to doesn't go far. It makes work mind numbing 😑. Even the boss and assistant are like that too. It makes me want to quit but I need the money.

I‘m so scared of my boss right now. I was sick last week (for the first time) and apparently she doesn’t like when people are sick (even if it’s not their fault?). Tomorrow I‘ll have to face her and I‘m just so scared that she‘s going to fire me or be mad or I don’t know. I‘m constantly having panic attacks (not only because of this) and it’s just to much. Also I‘m a crybaby so I‘ll probably cry too and make a fool out of myself.

Why do people think it’s okay to be total jerks to retail workers? I’m a support manager and I got chewed out over the phone 2 hours before my shift ended b/c this guy apparently had tried to return something without a receipt a while back and was mad b/c he was going to get back MORE money than he paid for the item.... why are you yelling at me when something was going to be in your favor? And then there was the whole “I don’t mean to be rude” speech. Well you are so obviously you meant to be!

I really hate going to work anymore. I have an injury that limits my work hour's plus a dr note and my boss doesn't care one bit. I don't know what to do. I just can't work straight hour's like this. I'm working more day's the than the other workers... Doesn't make sense.

I’m a professional athlete trying to qualify for a game but the coach doesn’t like me. I’m dealing with lots of stress recently as I have to compete with my own teammates for the place in the games.

I go back and forth on whether I like my job or not. But it's stable and the people are nice. Way better than the last job I had. I just sometimes feel overwhelmed and not good enough although people like my work. Impostor syndrome maybe?

One of my coworkers drains the energy from me. I’m hoping I can prevent that tonight.

Extremely stressed about university and a career. I am trying to motivate myself but I guess I'm kind of stuck on what path to take.

I have had jobs before and even had my own team working under me but after moving to a new state with my boyfriend, my anxiety is so bad I can’t even get myself to apply all the way. I know I’m qualified for many high paying jobs but my mind stops me from getting far enough to do anything. It’s been a year since we moved. I feel like a burden.

Has anyone managed to find coping strategies for workplace PTSD? My last job was awful and I suffered badly there. My new job is perfect for me however I feel as though my mind and body is stuck in the past. I get such bad anxiety around talking to my manager and going to work. I keep telling myself 'see, it wasn't that bad' after I've done it. Will this fear end? I feel as though it has broken me.
