Working in media today with the US elections is a mad house, trying to keep my heart rate down and still work fast, be sharp, but my anxiety is through the roof. So scared to lose control

Going to work this morning, I hope I have a good day. Working in a nursing home can be stressful sometimes

I feel like the faster I run, the further behind I seem to become. I'm always chasing my tail.

I keep letting my work define who I am. So bad days send me spiraling down. Trying to not let my career dictate my own capabilities.

I'm afraid of the chance that I could never progress into a career that would better suit my skills, education, and career goals.

I just found out the place I work for is closing and I'll be losing my job in spring.

During my annual review, my boss said I only had 3 redeeming qualities: 1) in talented, 2) I'm educated, 3) I show up to work. He further explained that outside of that, I'm virtually useless. I decided to resign after this review due to the hint that I was no longer welcomed. I'm still trying to wrap my head around how those qualities aren't welcome. I always felt undervalued working there. Guess I was right.

I'm feeling trapped at work and worry they've come to rely on me too much. I used to appreciate being the know it all and having my hands in everything but now I just wish I didn't have to make every decision or constantly clean up/cover for my employees, coworkers, and bosses. I know I am so lucky to have the opportunity but I am becoming increasingly frustrated and tired. Maybe I just need a break? But I can barely take a sick day..

So fed up at work with how I'm treated by some people and I'm ultra frustrated that I always get the blame for the way people treat me. I am utterly mentally exhausted and am really struggling to cope with forcing myself to be ok here everyday

I feel like a failure. Currently unemployed and unsure of what career/ job field I should go into even though I already graduated college. My savings are shrinking and I don't know what to do anymore. I just want to do something that makes me happy and it seems like no matter how hard I try nothing seems to click or last very long.

Sometimes I feel like I don't deserve my job. I work from home and watch my kids. Sometimes I get so angry that I can't get enough done. Then my superiors say how happy they are with me and it's like I've made it all up in my mind. I love my kiddos so much but I get in work mode and get frustrated with both. I can't give 100% to either.

Work is so stressful right now, I'm struggling. Today should have been a day off, but I still had to go and help. I am grateful for my job, but would like a break once in a while.

Earlier this year I was assigned to work with an older male. But it's clear he doesn't view me as his equal. He's so difficult to work with, he's lazy, doesn't communicate and I end up doing all the work and when things fail, I get all the blame. He takes weeks off at a time without being reprimanded. And I'm worried I get angry with him tomorrow and it sets off an attack...

It happened again tonight... I'm not even on-call (I do tech support and am in a rotation) and yet I'm checking emails... and when I see a message from a customer, I get anxious and feel the need to reach out to help.... I wonder why? Why can't I disconnect? Why can't I trust that others have things under control? Why can't I let go of the feeling that I might get pulled into a support call at any moment?

I've never told anyone at work about my anxiety, I just try and get on with it. However sometimes I feel pressured and panic, yet I don't feel like I can use my anxiety as an excuse.

I spent 7 years building a business that is my heart and soul, 1 of the very few reasons I am still alive and now, the person that I took in off of the street, homed, fed, clothed and trained up from nothing into a successful person earning a very healthy salary and living the high life , is trying to steal my business from me. What has become of humanity?

I don't know what to do about my future job(s) and that scares me. I know I shouldn't be worry about it but I do need to figure out how to support my family.

My work is very emotionally draining, I miss being mentally challenged instead of feeling like I have to support and fix everyone else when I struggle to be strong myself

Really hate working here, in factories, I broke down last night because I'll never do what I want to do, which is graphic design.

Recently a coworker decided that I was a problem. They never discussed any issues or beef with me, never acted strange. I left for a week and came back to a hostile coworker within the first 20 minutes of my arrival. They stormed out and quit saying they "couldn't work with" me. To the best of my knowledge, and the majority of my other coworkers, I didn't actually do anything to this person.
