Stress at Work

I'm so happy I quit my job. It was so toxic and was giving me such anxiety. The money wasn't even worth it because it was effecting my health so much. I got a new job and the people are SO nice! If you find yourself in this situation leave and find something else..even if it's not your dream job. Putting your health at risk isn't worth it nor the money.

Got shouted at today at work!!! Really can’t believe how some people get management roles when they treat people like something on the bottom of a shoe. Can’t say anything as the repercussions would be worse. I’d like to say what goes around comes around but I’ve been waiting a long time to see the person fall from favour. You would think by 48 I would stand up for myself.

Does anyone else has nightmares/bad vision of a future where you’ll never advance in your job/career and be stuck in the same place until you die and never make anything better for yourself? Oh honey, that’s my biggest fear

Tell me why I don’t like Mondays? I know - the weekend has flown past AGAIN, - wake up early - travel needlessly - queue needlessly - work with a fool Happy Monday’s ☹️

I dislike the people I work with. They are rude and passive aggressive. I never know if I've done something to upset them.

I work for AT&T and it's a stressful job. You help pepole fix their bills, add to their accounts, and troubleshooting. You get really nice people, but other customers are really fucking mean. I understand that you want help on your bill but I can't help you if uou don't let me explain.

Realizing how much I use my job to mask what’s really going on inside. When I’m in work-mode I don’t have to feel or think about myself.

I have been making an effort to get more work to pay off student loans and generally feel more financially stable. Talking to new potential employers is nerve wrecking and I am uncomfortable asking for what I want in terms of pay. But I’m learning and I’m putting my best foot forward. I want to do well for myself and be responsible. It’s ok that it’s uncomfortable and new. I can coexist with the discomfort and still be myself.

I'm a nanny/dogsitter and am autistic. The past 24 hours has been nothing but insane. While I'm proud to have done stuff outside of my comfort zone, i really just want to be in bed with my teddy bear.

Just got into work and feel like I’m suffocating from anxiety

I cried like 5 times yesterday at my new job. Today is a new day. I’m hoping it goes at least a little better than yesterday. I wish I didn’t get overwhelmed so easily.

I'm TIRED of working. Been working for 24 years, and still have 28 left! I feel like I'm running as hard as I can, and have nothing to show for it. It's hard to stay positive when you work every day, take the stress and the endless tasks - and do them with a smile - just so you can eat food. I don't remember the last time I could afford to spend $10 without worrying about what it will do to my whole budget. Frustrating. Hopeless. Over it.

I hate my job. I clean up all day after strangers then I come home and clean up some more. It's monotonous and boring.

This past week I worked an 10 to 12 hr day, crazy deadlines, and horrible stressful environment. Sometimes I just want to quit and take another path in life :/

What's good for one isn't good for the other. It should be fair all around. And dealing with that daily is frustrating.

Not exactly “work stress” just stress about trying to find a job.

I can't stop being anxious at work, my social anxiety is really bad but this app helps me realize the thoughts that aggravate my social anxiety. I hope I change and change soon because I want to be content with the way that i am living.

I quit a toxic job and am starting to work for myself. Even tho things seem to be going great so far I can’t help but feel like something just terrible is waiting around the corner. Thanks a lot anxiety and paranoia 🙄

I think I may have made a bad situation worse by telling the truth. The truth should come with a warning label: The truth may cause a loss in friendships...

I start my new job next Monday, and I feel like I am not good enough for it. I don't wanna disappoint anyone.

I'm suicidal because its all crashing down on me at once. When I'm at work, I'm not needed. I'm not missed if I go elsewhere. I cant get noticed for my haed work. I'm a joke to all the supervisors. At the same time I'm under relationship stress, causing great anxiety. I will not tolerate his mindfuckery anymore. I can't stop crying today. Im devastated and alone, feeling unloved and not appreciated for the amazing light I try to bring t everything I do.

There hasn't been work at the warehouse im employed at in over a week. Im supposed to make around 300 a week, and I've missed out on a lot. I have to find a new place to live in one week. I have only $400 saved up. I need to get paid real soon

Trouble with a female coworker. I'm sure it won't get to this point, but i'm really hoping we don't have to get HR involved. I will if I have to, but I'm hoping it all settles down. Hopefully I won't have to see her today!

Working with dogs has its perks but oh boy. My ears hurt and I hate when I have to break up fights. Some of dogs can be really mean.

Why is it that I hold myself to a higher standard than my general manager? What is the point if managers don't even care? And then managers only check to make sure the workers that care did their jobs, not those that never do. What happened to people being held to equal standards?
