Raise your hand if you're overworked and underpaid. Because that's what I am.

Underpaid and feeling undervalued. I wish that I could finally be financially stable. But I do have a job. I am grateful for that. Looking forward to better days..

No matter how stressed you are with your work, please for good sake, never drag it home and shove it up to your family.

Anyone get anxious just thinking about going to work? Last year my anxiety was so bad I would get panic attacks the second I walked in the door. I ended up missing a week of work. I'm always scared that it is going to happen again.

I like working and being productive but I always get anxiety the night before my shift whenever I've just had a day off 😳 I don't know why it makes me so anxious. I'm fine working a certain number of days in a row, but once I have one off and start up again the next, it just fills me with dread and anxiety. Is that weird? Does anyone else feel that way?

I'm tired of the petty office politics that are going on at my work. People can be so spiteful and mean. I keep reminding myself that it all stems from insecurity. It's hard hard to stay out of the drama but I try my best to just focus on my work. Because at the end of the day leaving work with my integrity and work ethics intact is what matters most.

I'm tired of being a waitress. Guests are so entitled.

I'm terrified to go to work because I made a dumb mistake and I'm too scared to face it.

I think I need to find a second job but I'm afraid I'll be too stressed. I had a panic attack the last time I had two but I feel lazy just doing one

New graduate student looking for a job in my field. Although a lot of people have told me that they are rejected a lot before getting their first jobs, I feel absolutely dreadful even applying for a job. Feeling nauseous and blank every time I write a cover letter. My written English is pretty terrible and even when people read over mine and say it's fine, I feel like it's not good enough.

I am a graduate student and I teach at the university I attend. This year I'm teaching two classes and it's so overwhelming. I am so behind in grading and I feel so bad because I want to give these students the best I can give, but I also need to focus on my own studies. My office mates are great, but I feel like we're all so busy that every time I try to reach out and tell them about my depression/anxiety, they have to leave or there isn't enough time to talk.

I'm a new cashier. I have a bad habit of hitting cash - okay before entering the amount I was given and end up not seeing what I need to give back in change. It makes me feel so stupid.

I teach dance to little kids. When it's raining, they can't go outside. When they can't go outside, they have a lot of pent up energy. When they have a lot of pent up energy, I can't hear myself over them screaming about how much they love Frozen. Today was exhausting.

I'm stressed about telling a boss about someone who was harassing me because I still have to face her every day and work in close proximity. It makes my head hurt because I hate conflict with other people.

Today was my 3rd day at my job. It's part time so only 4-5 hours a day. Not the best job but hopefully it gets easier.

I got assigned to someone new tomorrow (I'm a support worker) and I'll be doing something I've never done before. I'm having a panic attack and ended up crying to my partner over the phone. Small things like that make me extremely anxious.

I sit in a small office by myself with no windows and no sunlight. I feel like I'm in a dungeon. It's super depressing and I dread going to work each day.

I manage a racist jerk that doesn't respect me or my role. His biggest aspiration is to take my boss's job. I've thought about quitting and just letting him win..

I do my best to exude good vibes when entering the work area but deep inside, I'm scorning and frowning at having to take care of babies for the next eight hours.
