I'm a psychologist and I took a 3 month contract and everything seemed ok as for the work environment.I get there and is like high school,psychologists gossiping, bullying and not even doing the job. They are unethical and immoral and the students are the ones who are hurted the most. I'm trying to play silly but I notice everything. I'm counting the days. Although I'm grateful because I can improve many students's life but is very hard and disappointing on the rest of my "colleagues"

Grateful that I have a job but I'm not interested in the work itself and the tasks drain me.

I've discovered this week that I don't want to be at my job of 9yrs anymore. At least I know what I don't want!

I'm expected to accept being spoken to like a piece of crap from managers and customers. Also to go above and beyond and bust my ass for absolutely no reason or benefit of my own.

I wish I wasn't so awkward at work... Maybe it's the whole new environment (cause I'm a new employee)...I just feel like disappearing sometimes... I act so awkward and shy around everyone, I mean I know I shouldn't because we're supposed to be a whole team but I can't talk to anyone (and this kind of business heavily relies on communication so yeah) and I just freak out. Maybe I'm letting everyone down...

I started a new job a couple of months ago, which I enjoy, however everyday Im always on edge, worried and anxious that I will do something wrong. I always worry what people think of me. Every evening I get so anxious about the next day. I can't seem to relax in the job, as I feel that if I do and let my guard down things will go wrong or I'll do something wrong. I want to be positive but I'm struggling to be. It's driving me mad and just cannot relax my mind.

I've been in a legal battle with my work over the refusal for medical accommodations for my mental health since April... They came back to me on Monday with even less than they offered a month ago.... I just wish people treated mental health the same way they do something that can be seen on an X-ray.

I lost my job after 4.5 years in the company. No one gave me a clear answer why I was laid off. I'm doubting myself constantly today. I'm angry that I'm in a doubting loop. I'm depressed that I'm stuck in this loop. It feels terrible.

It takes me so long to get up and convince myself to go to work. Then I spend all day wishing I were home. When I get home I cry because I'm afraid I made a mistake taking this job. I love what I do, but I feel like I'm not the right person for the job.

I work at a daycare. I love working with kids. It's honestly what I want to do with the rest of my life. But these past few weeks, it's been absolutely nuts. I want to cry everyday and my managers don't seem to help or care. I don't want to quit, but I feel like I have no choice. =[

I hate how people at my job think they can insult me, and somehow it's okay because they do it "jokingly," but the moment I do the same thing back I'm "rude." I swear, I can't win.

As an academic at university I constantly feel like I can't perform to the same standards of my peers. This leads me to shy away from sharing my research as I am afraid to be found out as a failure

I work at a company where everything you do "could be better" the enviornemnt is toxic and things will never change ther so I recently began looking for other jobs I've been on multiple job interviews and I haven't landed any of them I'm feeling discouraged, angry, sad and all I want is to get out of there- there are times where I feel like I'm not going to be able to contain my anger and lash out at someone. I feel so lost and all I want is a way out of the place that's making me insane

I had an anxious experience with a costumer at work today. He didn't have ID, his kids couldn't decide what games they wanted, we didn't have the right box for the game, I accidently said the wrong price and he just had a really heavy feeling around him. I felt so bad afterwards. My boss told me that it wasn't all my fault though and it made me feel a bit better despite the situation.

I have been stressing about a decision that was correct this whole time and procedures changed. I have documented everything and stressed about what ifs and finally received closure today to move on, what's done is done. Wrong information and communication makes for a stressful work environment

I work at bars so I leave late at night alone. My anxiety makes me scared to walk to my car alone. Last night a guy very rudely told me he would fuck me and it made me really upset.

I work in home for a family with a son with special needs. His mother used to be super cool with me. She often told me I was the best aide they had ever had because I do my job & keep a close eye on their son. It feels like lately her opinion has changed though I haven't. She's very passive aggressive and that action causes me to get very anxious often times like I'm going to have a panic attack. I used to love this job. I have had past conversations with her about it but nothing seems to work.

I've been on vacation for almost a week and my mental health and physical health have improve. I seriously believe I need a change. Soon. Very soon.

I have struggled with serious depression for the majority of the past 2 years. I'm off my meds now and doing a lot better but struggle with everyone still thinking I'm not quite right. I also don't have a good family and the loneliness has just been hitting hard lately.
