Stress at Work

Nothing like having an anxiety attack at work. Feeling like I can’t breathe my chest is so tight. I just want to crawl under my desk and hide

Just anxiety attacking every move I made, questioning if I’m doing it right every single time. It makes work super stressful almost daily.

I hate the way my boss treats his employees.The things said and done at my workplace would be frowned upon any where else. The worst part is evryone just takes it and finds it to be the norm. It may be because it's a male dominated industry but it's unacceptable. I am done. I am stressed because I've already come foward with a complaint but sadly things are never going to change. I am in search of a new job where I will be respected and not belittled everyday.

My mother called me, conversation led to what I’m doing with my life and making me feel bad that I’m nowhere in life yet. If only she knew it’s one of my daily struggles with myself. I put myself down daily because here I am not knowing what I wanna do, with no motivation, with a kid and I have done absolutely nothing.

Anyone else who’s an introvert and people at work often ask you if you’re ok bc you’re so “quiet” or have “low energy” or you “don’t talk much”. It’s happened to me twice this week. I’m relatively new at my job and I’m worried that now I have some sort of reputation of being unfriendly when really, I’m just shy and an introvert and prefer to keep to myself. Is that such a bad thing?

Tired of feeling like the work NEVER ends. Teaching is fulfilling, but draining.

Working in an office environment with anxiety is so hard sometimes. Some days I can be so talkative and others I find it so hard to talk to anyone so I completely zone out and barely speak. Today was one of those days.

It’s been almost two months since I started applying to jobs and I haven’t even gotten an interview yet. My self worth is low and I’m catastrophizing all the time. Sometimes I wonder if I have any skills and I question my intelligence

I currently just got promoted which I should be happy about, although it’s hard to. My bosses are super busy and In my position I have people well beings in my hand that have to be taken care in a timely matter. I feel as though I am sinking in all the knowledge I can’t apply or use to help these people. I’m drowning.

It is so frustrating how many people, even managers, at my work are surrounded with drama and issues involving coworkers. I’m sick of the unnecessary anxiety it’s causing me to go to work everyday and wonder what or who is going to be talked about, and whether or not people are talking about me. I’ve been so tempted to find a new job lately but I do enjoy what I do. I just hate the drama and problems some coworkers cause with it. It doesn’t cost anything to mind your damn business.

Change is so difficult in the workplace. I work where everything changes all the time. It’s an anxiety attack all day. Just looking for stability.

Too much to do and not enough time.

I was terminated from my job after 53 days of employment. I restarted receiving services for my mental illnesses to help me cope with the demands of being employed,but in the end,it was of no help. I feel as if I will never be able to work because of my mental illnesses. I am ashamed and disappointed in myself.

I can’t help but take everything my supervisor tells me personally and constantly stress about it even though it’s not that deep, I just overthink it and think he’s always mad at me

I've always been very serious about my studies, and had career goals set up since I was 15. Now that I'm finally at a point where I can do the things I've always dreamed of doing, I can't bring myself to get out of bed anymore. It's come to the point where I don't think any one around me would define me as "smart" or "intelligent" anymore. And it's always just been such a huge part of my identity, and there's just so much struggle involved in getting to this position. I hate myself so much rn.

I want to go back to working a regular 9 to 5 but I'm so afraid that I can't do it because I'm so used to working weird hours and weird jobs. I don't wanna set myself up to fail.

I got sick and had to call in sick. I felt bad. My next check will be smaller which is stressing me out. But I know that I couldn't work.

I’m 5 months into a job, and sometimes I feel so frustrated at myself for not understanding certain concepts. It was so bad today I almost just walked out and fantasized about never going back 😔 And then I feel weak for not wanting to endure it.

I know I'm settling in my current position and I can do more. But I don't know what else to do and where to go. So until then I will just settle. Life is hard.

I'm honestly just feeling unmotivated at work. It's probably PMS but it's making me anxious and feel guilty.

Started a new job today as a manager. I was told I’m probably the youngest manager they’ve had. I hope my best will be good enough this time.

Stressed about some presentations I need to give tomorrow to some possibly judgemental audience members. Just trying to keep positive and not let the internal critic take over

I hate being treated as an assistant to the recruiters. They ask me to do the most stupid things because they are too lazy to do it. I will have a masters degree in three weeks and I’m basically teaching them how to use the printer
