Why are interns treated so badly when all they want to do is learn?

I’m a mental health case worker. I really love what I do, but I struggle silently because I don’t want to identify to my coworkers or supervisor that I struggle with anxiety. I want to show that I am competent in my work (I am) so I’m afraid if I open up that I be faced with judgement.

i am a pharmacy technician & often times people do not realize how our jobs or insurance work so i’m often getting yelled at & my anxiety rises throughout my shifts & it’s making it more difficult to focus on my job or even wanting to show up

A week and 2 days until my interview. Stressed isn’t enough to describe my feelings. Praying daily and nightly. Need this to get me out of my state of anxiety and worry over the last few months. This will change my life. Hoping and wishing.

I really try to be happy at my job but this mundane office life sucks the soul right out of me.

my boyfriend left me last week, and I’ve still gone to work every day. It’s breaking me to not be able to be sad because I’m scared I’ll lose my job over it

I work 11 hr shifts that start at 10:30 am which is nice but I come home to a sleeping child and a dog who wants to play when I want to sleep. I miss out on family events and enjoying the fun in the sun. The pay is great and it helps with gaining the experience. I can’t afford to lose this job but I just don’t want to go back. Being home on this mini vacation was perfect but I’m not ready to deal with the stress again.

I'm failing to do my work

I pitched an idea for a huge project 2 the company I work for, & they said yes. I'm now in charge of putting together an event, & 9 other cities r included. I've dismissed ALL negative thoughts. I have severe complex PTSD. 4 a week I have been practicing 4 the conference call today w/17 other managers. I asked my manager a question & he said ONE thing- & it was over. I was then so triggered, I forgot everything I was going to say & couldn't remember my email... I feel emotionally skinned alive.

Tired of feeling anxious about work, on edge, heart racing days before my shift until its done and then it starts all over again after a day's calm if that

I jump into tasks because I feel too insecure to ask questions or address concerns. Makes my job twice as hard as it needs to be.

I work at a peer run mental health center. I thought my crew was really tight but unfortunately all of my work friends decided to conspire against the boss and then use me as the scapegoat. I feel so alone in the workplace.

I am so worried and anxious about a work-related situation. I think I am anxious waaay beyond a reasonable level, but my mind and body seems to treat it like a life threatening situation.

At my job, we make money based on how busy it is, and today I have done almost nothing. This week is horrible. I’m not hurting for money, but I should be doing way better than I am. Might be time for a change.

my anxiety has been so bad I haven’t been able to go into work for the past week. i feel so scared and alone

I’ve been in my career for 6 years now and for the time I’ve been stressed. Even though I don’t physically work hard, my mind takes a beating every day. I haven’t been to work in almost 2 weeks and really am thinking about starting a new chapter in my life. I make good money but I have found that money doesn’t bring happiness just more things to stress about

Debating whether or not I should take a mental health day since I am not feeling well and I worked 6 days in a row last week.

Just found out that the interview I have been praying for, for the last 2 months for my dream job they’re interviewing 10+ candidates (around 20) for just one role. I think I might be sick. There is no way that I would ever get it out of 20 people.

I’m the new guy and I wish I wasn’t.

im getting anxious about having to secure employment - i dont know if ill make the cut in the recruitment stage and im so scared i wont be able to find a job in the sector i want. also having to navigate the networking side of jobs is so difficult as im a shy person and even when i put myself out there i dont feel good enough in that space.

Why do I let every bit of "things not going according to my plan", affect my mood and self-worth? Does anyone experience this?
