Stress at Work

People think I'm joking when I say I would rather work part time. No, I'm not lazy. No, I don't think I'm better than everyone else. I have never been more depressed and anxious about life than when I work full time. I miss having time for myself. I miss being able to actually get stuff done, rather than prioritizing things to do during the measly 2 days off per week that I get. I never have time to do what I NEED to do AND what I WANT to do. I constantly have to sacrifice. I'm tired of it.

It's not really work stress but definitely work related. I applied for a job online and I made my first follow up call ever. I was so nervous I wrote out a script of what I needed to say. I'm happy to say it ended very well ☺️

In the corporate financial workplace there seems to be no room for emotions. Sometimes I cry in the bathroom. I'm a grown woman.

I am tired of working in a place in which I feel like I'm wasting my time and potential, while taking on co-workers projects that they drop the ball on constantly. I don't know if I should stick with it or find another career path.

I'm at work for so long everyday, and I try so hard but I just feel like I'm wasting all my time doing absolutely nothing.

I work in a restaurant when it gets so busy I feel so anxious about not giving the best service possible. And with these new "focus points" the mangers all just care about them and not the service you give!

This guy at work has been there longer than me and always takes control of my tasks and professes that he can do it better or quicker, and then he ends up messing up half the time! It makes it seem like I've done a poor job!

I have to go to a meeting today with new people and I feel so nervous.

I feel like I'm never good enough at work. I do get praise and my boss says I'm a good worker but I don't feel that way. I'm the worst and I shouldn't even have this job. I'm never going to be good enough to anyone.

Ugh so stressed out about work. I hate when I come home and I stress about things I've missed at work or wish I had done- even if it's not a huge deal. Wish Didnt care what people thought of me. Ruins my days sometimes when my brain makes up fake scenarios that could happen or happened and make me all stressed out! Hate my anxiety. It takes up so much energy. I wish I could focus on the 20 things I did right vs the 2 I did wrong.

I went for a job interview, i think being honest wasnt a good idea. I told her that the reason i couldnt stay long on a job because i always lose focus, having mental breakdowns and always panic. Obviously she wouldnt want me to be working there. She asked whether i ever thought about the future if im going to be like this... Ofcourse i think about the future... Im a failure.

I resign from work because my mental illnesses were getting in the way and I was never happy at work. Sometimes I wish employers work understand people with mental illnesses.

I'm new to my job and it's a bit difficult to learn. I don't know how to do certain tasks and I'm afraid of answering phones. I feel like I'm only getting in the way

I'm hopefully starting a work-study job as a tutor. I've been able to tell my profs about my mental health but I'm scared to tell my future boss. I don't want to keep secrets, especially since my anxiety will become really obvious sooner or later. But I don't want him to decide to hire someone else because he thinks I wouldnt be good. I know I will be a great tutor; I don't want to be discriminated against. Maybe I am just worrying too much . Idk

So much work. Not enough time to do it all. The quality of work is suffering. Now being asked if I am capable of doing it.. Feel worthless.

I'm scared of being trapped at the dead end job that I work I feel like the people I work with rely so heavily on me to the point where I'm not only working within my job description but the job descriptions of my manager and my supervisors. It's to the point where my supervisors ask me to go on break and I'm feeling undervalued and not worth the time that I put in there. It makes me scared to move on and have it be the same somewhere else

There is particular person I get paired up with at work who is rather condescending. It makes it hard to stay calm and get things done. She will disappear throughout the day leaving me alone and over worked.

I am not appreciated at my job. I worked hard, went back to school and now bust my butt caring for very sick people. This is work that I love, but my coworkers are so hypercritical and my evaluation is based on their "peer eval". Meaning that any hater can say anything they want about me anonymously and it is read aloud to me by my boss. So unbelievable. I feel like a square peg in a round hole.

I'm never appreciated or valued at my job. It's a simple job, but I work my butt off for someone who could care less. And I'm consistently scolded for insignificant things that shouldn't matter, like my hair or clothes. All that should matter is my work ethic.

I am absolutely panicked about my clashing schedules next week.. I keep one job for the stock option (privately owned) and my actual job in the evenings/night and I am scheduled to open at one of them everyday and close at another. I'm so scared because when I lack proper sleep my anxiety gets worse and I become very depressed. I just want to get through this week somehow...
