I was stressing over the stress at my job. For some time now I will on the verge of resigning but then I reconsidered every single time because I felt guilty that I was given the opportunity by my boss and I didn't want to let him down. As of last week, I no longer work there and I feel excellent. I loved my job but I was too stressed out over it

It's sad to live your life waiting for the weekend because you hate your job. I'm wasting my life for this

I'm anxious about asking my manager for the day off this week. I'm still processing how I respond to authority figures in my life and it scares me that I might be in trouble.

Today it was my first day after some weeks home for illness. It was really difficult and I feel exhausted

Working at hotel, today I had 2 couples, impolite and rude. I felt like I am a slave. No "thank you", "please" "hello". Just "give it to me NOW, or I make you fired"... oh wow. Wtf is wrong with people?!

I am a new business owner and I can't separate personal from work. This biz is my heart, soul, the purpose of my existence and I'm constantly stressing over meeting client needs, funds in the account to meet those needs etc etc. I have auto notifs on my cell so I'm sneaking work and checking the bank accounts on the side literally 24/7. Seriously stressing over biz funds/budget 24/7. I am convinced that if I stop for a day I lose it all. I have scheduled days my store is closed but I can't stop.

Nervous about going to work today, I don't want to have another anxiety attack like I did yesterday....I just am working at this job to save up money so by this summer I can get my own place and have a different job that is more challenging in a different town and hopefully I can work for myself!

Just started a new job and I constantly feel like I'm being a burden when I ask questions.

Annoyed when people don't do the work they say they will, and then pass it on to you instead.

I work for a major company and it bothers me that we have so much money yet basic infrastructure for the company is almost a miss. The company does not plan and often that inefficiency leads to more work and stress for the company yet they still expect 100%. It's not that thy don't pay well but that their vile of open door is only met with PR answers and no action. If the senior leadership knows thissince they moved up why aren't they focusing on supporting their mentees?

I've been off for 3 months due to depression, and I've been back at work for a week and still not spent more than about an hour with my boss... he hasn't even done my return to work meeting yet! It's starting to make me wonder if they want me to go off sick again...

Everytime I work I get so anxious before hand that I can't breathe. It's ridiculous because I know that I'll be fine but really I would rather stay home and sleep. I can barely leave the house on my days off. It's horrible.

Our company is struggling financially and we are facing retrenchments. I'm already struggling to cope with my own anxiety, and now I have to represent 10 people in a Retrenchment Consultation. I broke down crying today. A part of me wishes it could be me so I can pursue my passion, but I need the money so badly. It is so confusing. And management just expect everyone to continue as if nothing is wrong. It is killing me.

Me and my coworkers feel that my boss is racist. Which sucks because I am not the same race as her. She treats me like i'm nothing. She goes on to say "we're all the same and no one has higher power than anyone here". Yet she only treats the black people fairly and everyone else like dirt. Sometimes she won't even acknowledge most of the employees. Makes me have thoughts of quitting my job after finding a new one..

I became close to a coworker and lately she's been acting as if I don't exist. Today was just stressful I cried on my drive home.

Had a panic attack this morning. I can only put it down to being stressed at work yesterday.

Me estresa mi trabajo porque tengo un jefe que me provoca mucha ansiedad. Cada que hablo con él, me siento muy mal y no quiero que me hable de temas personales, el trata de ser amable con migo, pero no me agrada porque somos muy diferentes. A veces lo veo como una mala persona cuando no es así, simplemente tiene un cargo más alto y no por eso tiene poder sobre mi o es mejor que yo.

I have a great job that I love. But it is incredibly stressful and I constantly feel like a failure. I have a lot of anxiety and feelings of being overwhelmed

It is when you do your best and everybody sees it but no one, not a single person makes you feel like you do.

Talking about American Consumerism. Going to a job (brewery) that is purely focused on numbers for the month. Rather than spreading our word of mouth from our different beers. They see numbers. Traveled to Belgium and noticed the brewery was purely focused on getting thier beer to the public and or the entire country. Not focused on how many guests they can have in one night, just beer- no bull.
