Worst day ever today. Could not keep it together at work. My anxiety and depression are eating me alive. Cried in front of my boss and many employees. I feel like a complete failure. Embaressed and sick to my stomach to go back tomorrow. I have trouble at every single job I have tried to be successful at. I don't know what to do anymore.

Everyday I come to work, I have horrible anxiety. No real reason why. I enjoy my job and I'm good at it. But as soon as I sit at my desk, all the physical symptoms come and I start to get anxious. Any ideas how to overcome?

The culture on our unit can be so vile. We have some "mean girls" that make me contemplate serving jail time for battery. Worse I'm in a supervisory position. Even though now I know how to say things in their snide fashion I wish I could say it my own way but being professional has to come first now.

Working with humans is unpleasant in my experience. I feel like most of my coworkers hate me and that everyone is in some sort of relationship. I think abou killing myself every day.

I'm being phased out of a project by my colleagues and I'm trying SO hard not to take it personally and allow my thoughts to spiral. But I'm struggling, the frustrating thing is I can't work out what I've done wrong. It's been such a sudden change in the last few weeks as well. Doesn't help that it was the only thing I liked about my shitty job

Something that gets me through the rough patches with bad customers in retail is being obnoxiously happy and positive towards them, with a huge smile on my face. This not only helps block out their negative vibes but also annoys them as you are showing them that they aren't getting to you.

Just had another one of my work related breakdowns. Even after a few hours of productive writing, all I can see are the flaws in my work (most of which probably aren't even there), and think about how I should have started earlier and completed more by now. The joys of wanting my work to be perfect first time and not remembering that the best work requires creative freedom not constant negative criticism.

I've been working in my office for over a year now and for the past several months I've just been so unmotivated to get up and go to work, it's a daily struggle. I dread it. I don't even know why I feel this way I don't 'hate' my job but I don't love it either. Not sure if anyone knows any ways to help self motivate?

I'm a nurse and one thing we have to deal with is inadequate staffing. I had to do so many roles: nurse, mental health worker, sitter. It made it hard to just do my own job. I had stressful moments but thank God with the help of coworkers, we got thru the day. We're a good team :)

I'm a project manager and have to deal with clients who are dicks. I don't take it personally but it's not enjoyable. Anyone else out there experience this? How do you deal with it?

I had to call out of work today. Too depressed to try. I don't want to lose my job, but I can't force myself to go in like this...

Need help - I have a really good job, good people, great pay, I have a high future here and for the first time I actually enjoy going to work. Unfortunately it's my best friend wedding coming up in a couple of weeks and I'm a bridesmaid, but my work won't approve my leave and won't let me get a day off her her wedding. What should I do? Quit so I can go or call her up giving her a short notice that I can't go? I'm drowning here!! I haven't had a decent sleep over this for weeks

Looking for advice: I Graduated in May but I still haven't landed a job. I am interested in freelancing to gain experience but design programs are expensive. I have to start paying back my student loans eventually and it stresses me out that I still don't have a job. What should I do?

Anyone else here have a job that requires you to be on call? I'm in a rotation, and it... sucks. It's not even necessarily the calls themselves that stress me out... it's the POSSIBILITY of a call and how I build things in my mind. I'm getting burnt out and it's starting to affect my work/life balance.

Odio que me releven tarde del trabajo. No veo la hora de salir y a veces me caen tarde.
