Am I the only one who dreams about getting fired or laid off, just so that I can breathe again? I think all the time about my contract not being renewed ... Bc even though then I would have money worries, I feel like I would at least be able to not panick every morning about going to work.

I find work so hard at the moment. I love my job but I don't want to talk to anyone. I want to sit at home in my bed on my own. It's getting harder and harder to plaster a smile on my face every morning.

Take breaks and set time limits....When I do this I am less stressful.

I managed to bill my boss for an extra comissiin I did! I was so shy to ask her to pay me and I even doubted my work was worth something. But I did it! ( though at first she pretended she didn't know what I was talking about, but I didn't give up!)

It's finally happened. For more than a year, I have been suffering with GAD and panic disorder. I've also had other health issues that's only made it worse. My job has been really understanding: They let me take 2 months off and have been very lenient with my performance. But we're heading into a big project now, and my manager told me other day that I need to step it up or we won't make our deadlines. But I'm already doing the best I can! Anxiety is ruining my life. I might get fired.

Going to work on Monday mornings is extremely anxiety-inducing. It's getting so hard for me to leave the house. I am stressed and anxious most of Sunday, just thinking about going back to work, and it makes half my weekend hard. 😕

I don't know what to do. I can't keep a job for the life of me. I try but like I don't know I just give up or something. I hate myself cuz I end up just like leaving and stuff making up excuses. I'm sick of being this person. I hate myself so much that I feel sick inside. I don't know what I should do anymore.....

I hate my job, I feel like everyone hates me because I'm in one of the lower positions, I recently moved into a new position and had a member of my "team" told me the department never wanted me ..that's great. It takes everything in me to go in everyday

I am unemployed, looking for work, and struggle with generalized anxiety disorder. Making phone calls, following up, interviews, selling myself, waiting, and negotiating are so difficult that often when I get through one task I am a immobilized for hours with anxiety. I am fine after about six months of working somewhere because I am much more comfortable. But this, right now, is a struggle.

The depression won today. I could not face going into work. I have been sitting awake in my bed in the silence since 7am. It makes me feel like such a failure.

I'm socially anxious, but I try to eat lunch with my coworkers every day to stay connected. We work in marketing, but we don't have meetings. So lunch is our only real time to talk face to face. Now I have a crush on one of my coworkers :( I know it's not a good idea to be friends outside of work... oy vey

I feel my confidence is lacking in my job. I'm the lowest scoring on my team for my stats and I feel everybody around me is doing so much better than me. I feel like I've hit a wall and don't know how to get through. I feel like I'm constantly making mistakes in my work I just can't cope right now. I have some time off next week, I'm hoping a break will do me good

Feeling really unappreciated at work. Long hours, not enough pay, & a boss who doesn't care. I dread everyday that I have to go to work. I'm hoping that working less will help, but now I'm wondering if I can handle a job at all right now. So disappointed in myself.

I have the most awkward tension with this guy from work, who seems to be everywhere after work too. I don't know what to do so I'm ignoring him, but I'm tense and distracted all the time beaause of his presence. I don't have a crush on him or something, I'm just afraid of guys and this tension is slowly killing me every minute I'm at work.

I have my first job interview ever in two days. I'm super nervous and I don't know what to expect. I'm stressed out about what to wear and I feel like if I mess up on one of the questions I won't get the job.

Took today off because of an awful panic attack. The boss said she has to re-evaluate my position because of my mental health. I'm scared I'm going to lose my job tomorrow.

I work with this person that makes me feel low on the totem pole. Always correcting everyone else but never concentrates on her own mistakes. Doesn't let me talk to my boss if she calls in. Has a power trip ego going on, nobody stands up to her but me. Hoping I don't get told I'm the one with the attitude problem, clearly it's not me. Just frustrated with this dead-end job until I decide to further my education. Support appreciated.

OMG it's so busy at my work and it's hard to focus and concentrate when you haven't gotten any sleep and you are thinking about everything! I try to have a great attitude in the morning but it fades away by the end of the day! I still have hope that God will get me through this!
