Sunday nights are the worst. I get so anxious about the next week that I can’t even breathe

Anyone else unemployed and can’t even look at job postings because of anxiety attacks? It sucks.

I work in a hospital and because I don't work directly with patients I am constantly looked down on, being talked rude to, and my work is constantly questioned. It's really frustrating and hurtful when people treat you this way simply for doing your own job.

Every Sunday I get very anxious about work. My biggest fear is making mistakes and getting stuck. I get so stressed every single week over things that I know I can complete. I wish that I could overcome my fear of failure. I also wish I knew what I wanted to do with my career. I do like my job but I always fear I’m in the wrong job.

I'm scared that I don't like the job I just got. I'm scared that I wasted so much time and money to get my degree...

It ok not to be ok. But don't you dare give up. We are all human and life can be hard at times but it also so beautiful when you look at life positivley and complete self help and self love rituals. I hope everyone here finds themselves and gains the love and acceptance they need. Let choose to be happy and magnificent....

I have a phone interview today. I’m prepared but am feeling a bit nervous as it gets closer to the scheduled time.

What am I going to do now I haven't worked for 8-9 years through stress, anxiety and depression and I am nearly 56. Is there any hope?

Got a promotion at work and at first, I was feeling GREAT. Now I'm thinking of all the things that could go wrong and if I'll be able to cope. I'm scared because it involves talking to people and presentation and I am petrified. As I'm going to bed, I can't breathe. I know I am capable of anything I set my mind to, but other people's emotions easily affect mine and I'm afraid that if one of my clients shouts or puts me down it'll ruin me emotionally.

I work with children with autism and I love my job. However, I am a very schedule oriented person so change in schedule scares me and gives me anxiety. I was notified by my supervisor that my session tomorrow will be with another client (that I’ve never worked with). I am nervous that the parents won’t care for me, the client won’t like me, and the session will be horrible. I don’t know how to stop thinking of the negatives in this.

I just moved to new York city and my new work environment is so stressful. I've had a lot put on my shoulders than what is expected of my position. I'm ready to move on to something else. I'm grateful, however, for my managers understand of how I'm feeling.

I recently changed jobs because I wasn't being supported in a stressful environment. Turns out in my new job the stress is just in a different form. It's important that I don't run this time. But build the support I need if I can't find it from others.

I want to quit my job so bad but I can’t until I find another one. I can’t take the hours anymore and am getting seriously burnt out.

I hate my job so much! I thought it would be different to what I'm experiencing which is the only reason why I took it. I know I can do so much more better and I'm trying to do so but the process is agonising. I can't face coming back to work every week when I know this isn't the place I need to be

Everything that could go wrong at work did. Team members didn’t come in. Mechanical issues!! I didn’t panic- I accepted it!#progress

I’m a special education teacher dealing with 20 families, an unsupportive principal, crippling anxiety about being fired, and losing my passion for teaching. I want to quit, but any family member I talk to tells me I would be stupid to give up a job in one of the nations best schools. But they don’t work there and don’t understand the havoc that this job is wreaking on my physical and mental health. I’m 27 and would like to see 77...

Things have gotten a lot better at work. There are a few things I wish I would have done differently. But I just have to learn from my mistakes and hope that people will be understanding.
