Anyone else consumed with anxiety today over having to start the work week already tomorrow?

I love my job. I work as a children’s library assistant. My department is myself and three other women. One is often negative and hard to deal with. I try to remind myself, though, that she is like this with everyone and not to internalize it. I try to not talk much about her outside of work anymore, and focus on the things I like about my job, and my other two coworkers who are incredibly kind. I remind myself dealing with her is making me stronger in the long run.

Sometimes the only way to get myself to work is counting down to the end of the week. Why do we spend 7 days slaving away to be thrown 2 free ones?

When you do the work of 5 people! Unrealistic deadlines! Managers who don’t give a CRAP! & put in bad situations

I have bad social anxiety at work at my new job that’s holding me back. I feel like people think I’m uninterested or bored but I’m just actually anxious. Especially because I’m the youngest it’s intimidating being around experienced professionals.

I can't sleep. I had a bad anxiety attack at work and got sent home. Tomorrow morning will be my first day back since. I don't know how my co-workers are going to act. They really don't understand my anxiety.

My stress is stemming from not having a job. I left my job in August because I needed a break from a 9-5. Now, I’m back to being extrememly stressed because I need a job. I just don’t know if I can handle going back. So many fears of even getting something part time.

Nothing like being late to the first day of highschool. It’s okay. I’m okay.

Yesterday, marked 1 year of when I was written up at my previous job. I should've realized how much I was unhappy and leave that situation. I also see now how I was so under appreciated- my mental health was complete shit, and I'm glad I'm out of that situation.

people who are supposed to be my supervisors are acting really childishly and being very power hungry, it’s putting a damper on me and my coworkers spirits :(

Working at a job for 3 years now, after recent conflict with a co worker who’s micromanaging us, an abenstee boss who won’t deal with her, the fact I only make .50 above min wage here, and stressful ect.. I’m honestly so burnt out. I’m so burnt out I could cry. This was supposed to be a creative job but I do the same thing everyday. I was supposed to learn and progress and never did.

Being pressured to look for high intensity work just because I'm a graduate even though I'm literally in hospital for mental health.

The job I loved was taken from me so now I’m at one I don’t even like. There’s upsides such as higher pay and the fact I even have a job. I can’t help being constantly disappointed though. I’ll just keep reminding myself of the upsides I guess...

I am on educational leave from work but one worker just loves to tell me the negative talk from work. Thanks but no thanks, I don’t need to hear that.

I ended up dropping a day a work because I can't stand working there. My boss is a mirco manager and tried everything and anything to find an error in my work and kept finding nothing. I hate I had to drop a day but working there is driving me nuts and hurts my brain >.<

I had a job interview today. I think it went well but regardless of what happened I did it! I went I advocated for myself, I showed up and did my best and that’s all I can ask for. :) The more I do them the easier it gets.

Today I have decided that I'm not going to let my incompetent previous boss (who let a teammate and I get verbally abused by clients because of her mistakes, micromanaged situations she knew nothing about, and always took the clients side over her own employees) still have control over my feelings towards finding a job. She is in the past and I will not let the memories of her incompetence play any part in my future.

I will start a new job on Monday and today I am having thoughts that I can't do it. I am doubting myself. I am feeling insecure. I hope it will be okay and it's just normal anxiety when something new begins

My boss is a mico manager and to her everything I do isn't good enough. I found out she is going behind my back and looking for someone to replace my job. I'm just irritated because if I knew this I wouldn't of booked my client's appointments with me then!! I want to scream! I hate people like this!!!!

Work has been just really unbearably hectic. When I go home, I'm so tired I don't want to do anything, and I realize that I work the next day too... idk how the hell to get past this feeling of wanting to choke someone out

I had an anxiety attack and cried in front of my boss today. I could really use some kind words.

Found out today that all the members of my team have complained about me to the boss. I'm new and supposed to be leading a team that refuse to be led, they came up with a huge list of my failings. So heartbroken and lost now. Don't know how I'll face going back in on Monday...

I’m a music teacher. I have grades pre-k through 5. Just now, I had two girls playing with each other’s hair in my class—obviously not ok. I gave them the “look”, twice. They did not stop. I had to say “stop playing with her hair.” The girl said “I’m not!” Me: 🤔 “what is this then?!” Girl: “I’m braiding her hair, I’m not playing with it.” Me: 🤬 “whatever you’re doing, stop it.” When I walked away, the girl flipped me off. This is 4th grade...10 year olds, y’all.

A former coworker (who was recently let go on bad terms) has asked me to send them some of their past work to use as samples in an interview in 2 weeks. He worked with client information, and I’m nervous that sending him anything will come back to bite me in the butt. At the same time, I know that he needs the job he’s interviewing for to support his family. I might just ask my supervisor for advice tomorrow, but this is bothering me so much that I feel sick to my stomach...
