I never feel like I'm doing good enough at my job. I feel like my boss favorites everyone else over me. It makes me feel like something is wrong with me.

I missed work again today. Lied about feeling sick. Honestly I was just tired. So sad. And so afraid of failing and feeling even more depressed than I was when I woke up..

I hate my job... which I thought was my career. My doctor put me on leave of absence because my job makes my anxiety and depression worse. I'm on day 2 and I already feel relief.

I'm having unrealistic anxiety about being judged by my coworkers.

It's hard having responsibility, trying your best and never feeling good enough. I'm so caught up worrying that everyone is happy that I'm making myself ill

When work becomes overwhelming, my mind shuts off any motivation in order to halt stress before it happens. I never get any work done because my subconscious prevents the thought of work to reach my head.

Just had an interview for an amazing internship. It went well, but I don't think I'll get it because she said that grad students and law students get priority over undergrad (like me). But, she did say there are a lot of volunteer opportunities for the organization so I am trying to stay positive and hopefully I can do that if anything

I'm just an ice cream scooper, so it's pretty slow right now. But I'm so sick of the creepy men that come in a flirt with me. I'm underaged! I wish I could say, "Back off" (or something worse), but I would get in trouble.

I made a huge mistake at work. I could've either hoped no one found out and spent the whole weekend worrying about it or I could've called my supervisor and told her upfront. For the first time I didn't try to push it to the side and I called. It ended up being no big deal and I'm so relieved

Whenever I make the tiniest mistake like saying something awkward or not knowing what to do, I feel like I'm a failure and not worthy of working here. Sometimes I feel like an imposter.

I consult for some companies on the side, and one has a difficult time keeping track of finances. Instead of sending me my full amount, I was sent a check for a penny! With no explanation! Apparently, the book keeper wrote down they overpaid me last time. I sent him a detailed account of my checks. I'm happy I keep records of this work, but I'm extremely annoyed that the bookkeeper didn't do his job right (happened before). I just want to get paid for my work.

I woke up, felt physically ill, called into work sick for the first time ever. I started to feel better, but that made me feel like I wasn't sick enough to "deserve" a sick day. Now I am so anxious I made myself feel sick again. I don't know why I always feel bad no matter what I do.

I have come to an epiphany. I am unhappy. My work is making me unhappy. Being an adult child of an alcoholic, coming from an abusive family background with all the uncertainties that implies. I can't afford emotionally or physically to be unhappy. I am going to give it up. No more work. It is time for me to walk away and focus on my own family. Discover what makes me happy. Define myself for who I am, not my occupation nor my past. I am going to find my happiness.

So tired of working 15 plus hours a day. Feel like no matter how much progress I make its never enough. Only did about half of what I needed to do for work when I got home. Was going to keep going but I've been on the go since 6 am. Just don't have the fight tonight. Know I'll probably regret it tomorrow, but I give up for the night. It's time for bed.

I can't wait until I can quit waiting tables/bartending. I hate people and their unbelievable, unwarranted entitlement. I'm a human being, please treat me like one! I'm not your servant. One more year.

I'm finding it difficult to get up in the morning for work. Being there makes me want to cry all the time, people are just so childish and I wasn't made for this life...

I actually get stressed when I DON'T have work. Left alone to my own devices, I force myself to work on exercise or reading because I can't stand to be unproductive. I've codified extended relaxation as laziness and uselessness in my mind and I'm slowly learning how to let myself enjoy... being a slowly maturing human?

I was angry for 99% of the time I was at work today. It all started because a coworker was extremely rude to me. She has attitude all the time at work and is mean to a lot of people. I don't understand. Why do you have such a bad attitude all the time and take it out on everyone?

I had my annual evaluation at work today and it went SO well. My boss is entrusting me to head up a committee and take charge of a very important certification process. I am so proud of myself and that I didn't let my depression hold me down! I am feeling more confident than I've been able to in awhile.
