working in retail when you struggle with mental illness can be a nightmare. a lot of people have no issue with taking out all of their frustrations on you, and 99.9% of the time the problems customers have are absolutely nothing to do with you. they shout, they swear, they make you feel like nothing. i am not an emotionless statue, i am a human being. the hurtful things that complete strangers have said to me over the years have stayed with me. if only they knew.

I'm tired of constantly being in "survival mode." I want to just live my life and have work be a part of it. I'm exhausted from living to work.

Do not let others' negative vibes bring you down! Work hard, focus on being boss, avoid all of that gossip/drama and remember, "not my circus, not my monkeys!"

Anyone else nervous about going to work on a daily basis, not because you don't like your job, you actually like your job, you're just afraid your anxiety is going to get the best of you and you're going to screw up???

I really hate that feeling when someone is unpleasant to you at work and you take that energy home with in the evening

I'm sick of people asking me when I'm going to apply places again. My family probably thinks I'm lazy and that I just hated my old job (I was a cashier/bagger at the local grocery store). While, yes, the job did indeed suck, that's not why I quit. The real reason I quit is because it caused me too much anxiety. It made me physically ill and I'd constantly be worrying about my next shift. It made me so miserable, and I'm too scared to go through that again.

I'm a therapist. When I'm having a rough day it's hard to get motivated to be there for others. But when I do I often find that I'm inspired by them. And it feels good to forget about myself and focus on others.

I work my butt off at work. I do everything I am required to do with flying colors. It annoys me when other ppl who do the same job I do complete 1/2 of the work and get all the praise...the higher ups see my work...they know I do it and pick up the others slack...yet....nada...makes it very hard to get motivated and continue to do good work

I am at a tipping point with my job. Experiencing significant anxiety that is affecting my performance. I feel stuck in the middle having to choose between trying to power through or modify my lifestyle. I want to stay, but it just seems impossible. I need help and I don't know how to start. Has anybody talked to their player about modifying their work due to anxiety? What about in the teaching profession?

I started a mindfulness group in my office that meets for 15 minutes per week for guided meditation. People are loving it! I've also stopped swapping "stress stories" with co-workers--I can choose what I download!

Anxiety is highest when I feel "stuck" or unsuccessful at work. Because of this I have accomplished many degrees and acquired many valuable skills and have an amazing reputation. A new leadership opportunity has opened up which I have been told I am the best candidate for but they are concerned that I am "too young and will not be respected based on my age". How do I deal with age discrimination at work?

I work for my stepdad. He fired me today because he said everyone thinks I am just a complainer. I have chronic deep depression and I have been off my Meds for two years. I don't want to take meds. I feel so alone and separate. I have a family to provide for...

My supervisor is a hypocrite and when she does something that she tells me not to do or something she has talked to me about not doing I feel like I can't make a comment about it because she's my boss...

I worked in assisted living for several years, but left to cashier at a grocery store. I thought having a less stressful job would be helpful, but I feel like I'm not doing anything to help anyone anymore. Not to mention standing it one spot all day isn't helpful, anxiety-wise. I want to go to nursing school, so I keep reminding myself that this job will be better while going to school. Virtually no stress, flexible hours. But right now I'm having a hard time working such a meaningless job.

Just participated in a meeting at work that caused me so much anxiety that I want to give up. This happens often. I want to just quit but I have 2 kids to support. Looking for a new job is difficult because I'm very depressed. Considering medical leave but that makes it more difficult to find a new job, especially if I go on short term disability. I feel so trapped. I feel like I want to die.
