I have a new manager. Today I wrote an email to let the manager know that I do not respect their training tactics and am anxious about the response. I was very professional, but very honest. I believe in what I said and would be fine with being let go. These past few weeks have been very hard on me. I have been having very troubling thoughts and barely sleeping after some of the thing the new manager has said to me. I am anxious, but I am happy I did what I did... it was necessary.

I finally decided to walk away from a very toxic work environment and take a new position at a different company. I also took a huge pay cut, which is quite devastating here in the Bay Area, but I am putting my mental health first. I hope someone out there finds this post helpful.

I have to constantly remind myself that I'm not doing anything wrong and that when my boss freaks out at me for unreasonable things it's a problem with him and not with me.

I quit my high paying job with good benefits because it was slowly killing me. I turned into someone I’m not. I’m trying to get back to being myself again.

Doing my last job application nearly knocked me out (and I didn't get an interview), but at least I'm bravely doing another one - and it was a little easier!

My job is so annoying. I fantasize quitting all the time. But looking for another job is just as stressfull as working at a place who under values me, my quality work, and time

I didn’t get the job I had an interview for and now I’m losing all hope of being employed 😔 I should’ve known better, nothing ever goes right for me.

I’m feeling so devalidated and insecure about something I know I’m really good at... my self esteem is shot! Hate this feeling 🤦🏻‍♀️

I worry a bit too much about work, about getting everything right and trying to keep everything on track and not trying to make mistakes. I find it hard to trust that other coworkers will do a good job. Definitely not a recipe for peace of mind.

I had a panic attack at work and felt so embarrassed, it looked like it was over the simplest thing but it was built up stress from so much other stuff. I was just uncontrollably crying and couldn't breath. Feeling nervous about what my other colleagues are thinking of me now as well.

I dislike my job and some of my bosses. My coworkers are phony they like to talk about people. I hate going to work i start to get anxiety and i feel sick. All i can do is watch the clock because i want to go home and sleep.

I work for TV...and today I had to record a Talk show for 22 Minutes, with a therapist. The whole damn time they talked about depression!! I started crying while recording, cause I felt like, they were talking about me. (The therapist and host don’t know, that I have depression)

I just flubbed a conference call so bad 😖 15 minutes before the call after I've prepared and gotten myself calm my boss decides it's a good time for an interrogation followed by making me reboot my computer twice. I was so anxious I couldn't focus. I'm umming and talking too fast. It's just so embarrassing. I feel like these people must think I'm some kind of blithering idiot.

Ugh work lunches 😖 I have such a hard time being "normal" and sociable for that long and I'm so self conscious that I'm saying something weird or being weird

I am in university and I am terrified already of the day when I will work. I am already so caught up with work that most of the people whom I used to be friends with do not want to hang out with me anymore because the only thing I talk about is work

As I am a student and under 18, I am contracted for 8 hours over the period of 2 days, for £5.26 an hour. My job has been horrible recently and I’ve been seriously considering quitting. Today was the final straw when half the staff did not turn up, and I was scheduled to work 12 hours next Sunday and 4 hours on the Saturday. Am I being over dramatic or is this the right move?

I start a new job tomorrow. I’m nervous because I had to quit my last job due to overwhelming amounts of depression and anxiety from the job. Now I’m nervous that that’s going to happen again... or that I won’t know how to do something

So I'm a nanny and because of fall break this week I was watching 3 kids instead of my usual 1. I didn't talk to my boss about a pay increase for the week being as I have 3 times the work load right because I was too afraid and was hoping it would be be common sense give someone a bunch more work at least get a little more pay. (Apparently it's not.) I just messaged him about it and feel like I'm going to be panicking for the rest of the day. I hate this but I did not get paid near fairly.

There is a lot of tension between my coworkers and I have a hard time not feeling like it is directed towards me, when I know it isn’t. It all feels very toxic and makes me feel so anxious. I’m so anxious about working tomorrow morning with a coworker that doesn’t like me and then being surrounded by the toxic environment...

My boss is out of town for the last week, I am in charge of my program. The other managers said if I need help I can always ask them, only when I did ask them they said, “It’s not hard you can do it.” So I was left alone to try to do it myself.
