I shouldn't be happy about this, but the coworker that causes me the most stress at work got fired/quit today! (Yes she has another job lined up, I'm just glad that my work stress will be going waaay down).

It's getting harder and harder to maintain any positivity at my job. I don't feel valued for my work and it's affecting my productivity, which affects my mood and vice versa. It's starting to affect my personal relationships. I interviewed for another position and am waiting to hear back but it's getting harder and harder to get up in the morning to go to work.

I have two job interviews this week and am so scared. the first one is tomorrow, if anyone reads this please wish me luck ๐Ÿ˜ž I am too anxious to even practice interview questions so I'm relying completely on my instincts tomorrow.

I have been ill and not able to work as much. It stresses me out when I can't do my normal day to day stuff. I feel like I'm letting down my managers because I'm sick but I know I need to get better first.

Just got passed up again for a promotion. They keep saying you're doing great and you're one of our top producers but actions are greater than words.

How can one person go from having such a great morning/afternoon, to having such a headache inducing evening? I can't stand where I work anymore! I'm exhausted. I've tried to hang in there for as long as possible - even on days where I'm alright, and never gets any easier. I feel like just walking off the job and never looking back.

I thought I had a new job, I did the training and everything but it's been like two weeks since that and they've asked me to go in tomorrow and I'm almost certain they're going to tell me I don't have it anymore and I'm just freaking out

I work in mental health and I feel like sometimes my clients have their act together more so than I do

I just want to be around enjoyable people, everyone here is judgmental. I know I should be grateful for getting weekend off and vacation time, but is it too much to ask to work with people I like?

When I go to the office, I think that everybody hates me. That through the years I have hurt everyone, and I should move on because there's no place for me. Ten years. I live alone, and I finally can't manage my things. I'm tired.

I worry about holding down a job once I graduate. I can hardly cope with uni and I only have 8 contact hours a week.

I've been laid off for about a week and I have bills. I just bought a laptop with a credit card. Luckily, I have 2 interviews going this week. I hope I make enough.

I try my best to stay positive but I have a co-worker that does nothing but complain abour how much she doesn't want to he there. She gets way more weekends off than I do, and she just got back from a week long vacation. I haven't gone on a vacation for over a year. In fact, I haven't had three days off in a row since I started working there. The lack of maturity and professionalism is getting my last nerve.

Work was overwhelming tonight and I can hardly maintain a positive attitude when I go in anymore. I'm expected to do the jobs of multiple people since most of my work group isn't properly trained, and even when I'm trying my hardest I end up getting yelled at by my managers which makes me feel like they think I'm not doing well which in turn makes me feel terrible about myself. I hate to take work stress home with me but lately it's been difficult not to. I've been an anxious mess all week.

My supervisor at work is a very anxious person and it makes my job not as relaxed as it can be. I truly don't look forward to work because of her. I've been there much longer than she has and things just don't have to be so stressful. I really wish she was more receptive to cues.

I work in a very high-intensity fast paced job and i think it might be getting to me. Over the past few weeks I feel extremely drained and exhausted, my hair is falling out in clumps and I don't have much of an appetite. I thought I was feeling better and have been off antidepressants for over 6mo, and am hoping this is not signs of relapse? Maybe vitamin deficiency or just work stress?

Have felt on the outer at work. I overthink things but have been trying not to bottle them up (I tend to have outbursts of pent up frustration and stress if I do). I told two of my coworkers that I was unhappy with how they were treating a new initiative they have headed up; made me feel more excluded. They were really hurt by it so now I just feel awful and worse off than when I started. They see my perspective and apologised but their hearts were in the right place. Wish I said nothing.

My job pays well, but it's boring. The hours drag by while I'm there. I know I could find a different job, but I'm afraid I won't get paid as well. I'm also afraid that my next job will eventually be just like the one I currently have. I'm a bad decision maker, often leaving me with the feeling of being trapped. I lose interest in things quickly.

I'm a coach for ice skating, and I got cut from my job and work half of what I used to work. I miss it.

Just graduated with a degree in visual communications and I want to be a graphic designer. Getting the job is nothing like what I anticipated.

I am currently applying for new RN jobs in hospitals around where I live. I stress myself out way too much about getting a job once again to feel like I am contributing to society...I was raised with a lot of Catholic guilt which I hated and rejected pretty much after college the first time. I take pills for my depression and anxiety...
