I enjoy my job, I just hate being so exhausted afterward. I want to go out and do things with my family and close friends but I just don't have the energy..

I recently lost my job due to the stress I was under. I tried everything I could to get help but my final cry for help was not seen as such by the company. I am scared to go back into a work environment again. It has made me question what I want to do for a career and i have no idea how to start

It is so frustrating to have coworkers with the same job description as you, that are lazy and are playing on their phone on plane sight while I am juggling 4 things at once 😒

Just spoke to my manager about one of my co-workers harassing me.. I hope something gets done about it. I'm tired of walking on egg shells with this person. Time to get it over with. I love my job other than that coworker

I can't wait for the day when I can finally leave retail for my dream job. I can't wait to prove wrong everyone who said I couldn't do it. This is one of the main things that helps me face going into work every day.

I'm struggling really hard to keep it together at work. This week has been especially tough because my panic attacks are back in full force. No amount of my breathing exercises or thought exercises help. I'm nervous, anxious and breaking down. It's at the point where I can't even complete a day of work anymore. =\ Thanks for reading.

I often feel like I'm not doing enough work, even though I know I'm a very conscientious person and I'm juggling research, classes, and mental health struggles.

Know I made a huge mistake in work on Friday and what's worse is waiting for Monday to come because you know your manager will have a go at you. I lie in bed panicking I can feel my body temperature rising put of pure fear and anxiety

I am sick, and I'm worried they'll think I just want time off. I always feel like this when I get sick.. (my old job was really tough about this..They never believed you were sick) I had a day off day before yesterday and I got sick the next day. I only had two drinks! I've been working so much, I feel guilty for staying home. I had to call out for tomorrow just now.. i wish I could just focus on getting better.

I have begun my new career while finishing grad school and being in a long distance relationship. Stress and anxiety fill my days. On top of that, I am a very quiet person who gets social anxiety. My colleagues make comments daily on how I'm so quiet and how I need to talk more. I feel that it is just who I am and I've always been this way. I don't mind talking one on one or one on two, but I have trouble in a group setting. Just thinking of work gets me stressed.

I'm starting to doubt myself as a teacher. Some parents are so rude to me because I am relatively young (25 years old) although I have the most teaching hours compared to the other staff in school. I feel like I can't be taken seriously and it's affecting my self-esteem.

First time manager and the company I'm working in doesn't really care about the personal and professional development of its employees. I don't even know what to ask my team to do anymore - we're bored.

So this guy basically had a fit over what I worked on. He was all gathering people and talking shit the whole time about what I did saying basically that the person who worked on this is stupid and went on and on. I really can't stand him now and I know I didn't do anything wrong but I now feel terrible and don't want to go to work because everything think what I did was stupid.

I've started a new job recently and my main co worker has made it her mission to make my life a misery. She's always snapping at me, undermining me to my manager, telling me the opposite of a procedure to get me in trouble (she's supposed to be training me). I'm fed up of constantly coming home wanting to cry. I'm already fighting my anxiety all day long, I'm fed up of having to watch out for her games all day also.

It's never enough. It's always nite work the next day. Always something bigger. And I feel smaller whenever I miss out the day. I want to relax. But feel guilty when I do. Anyways I hope my work colleagues to take care Of my work in my absence.

I work in retail and I'm so unhappy. I finished uni 2 years ago and it has nothing to do with my job.I'm a supervisor in a small store, my managers moan and put all the work on me. They don't come in and expect me to deal with everything. I ask to cut my hours down and not be supervisor but they just raised my pay by 20p. I try to look for jobs that I studied for but as soon as I go to my computer, I assume I won't get the job so I don't apply. I feel really stuck.Should I just leave with no job

Last year I got my first real job at my dance studio's summer camp as a counselor in training and it scared the heck out of me. We'd have a quick metting with the supervisors at the end of each day and I always got some type of constructive feed back. I'm doing this job again this summer as a junior counselor which means i'll actually have to lead the class. Any tips on working with and teaching kids, while making it fun?

long story short, my safety and the safety of my coworkers was severely compromised today just because no one in upper management wanted to sacrifice a sunday off and I'm just so tired ......

I've been working here for over two months and it's a small local pizza parlor there's only 5 of us including myself that all work together for +7 hours every day and they still can't remember my name sometimes. They call me Samantha when my name is Savannah. It's not that hard..
