Finding a different job is so stressful. 😕

Tomorrow it's back to work. Grateful for my job but not all the stress involved.

I took some time off work and now going back tomorrow I feel super anxious. I needed some mental health time to recooperate but now I feel guilty and scared I'll get in trouble. I went to see my dr and got a note excusing it but I still worry my boss will be mad and I could even be fired. The stress of going back almost makes me not want to go back at all as crazy as that sounds. Any advice?

En notant mes pensées, je me rends compte que je me mets de la pression pour des choses que je ne peux pas contrôler. Je suis sur la bonne voie.

I have so much responsibility in my work, it's so many things for just one person, but my boss does not understand it. I'm so exhausted.

(I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this) Due to extreme social anxiety, I'm really worried that I'll end up messing up my first job entirely. Problem is, all my possible options for first jobs require a pretty high level of social interaction. Know any ways to get around/over anxiety on the job?

I feel like my social anxiety really gets in the way of me living up to my full potential. I know I have a lot to offer ! I want to express myself more than anything but can never get the right words out or someone seems to speak over me because I choke or I feel like nobody cares what I have to say. I feel misunderstood, like I am unable to be myself. I want this fear to go away. Like I'm wasting my life.

My career is my only identity. I am a new "empty-nester" and being "all-in" with my job can sometimes mean extra stress and disappointment.

I get anxious about being not committed to a job and yet as soon as I commit I can't wait to get out of it and I doubt my decision.

I hate my job, almost all my coworkers are ego-centered and possesive; there is no sense of team

Back to the drama infestation tomorrow. Thankful I have a job but I hate how much it sucks the life out of me.

I have issues with anxiety and I don't like being yelled at when I'm working. (By another employee) Getting called a name in front of everyone. I tried my hardest to not yell back and make myself get in trouble. I grabbed the manager and she left. I did brake down after I had a second alone.

I left a very stressful job where I was doing what I hate the most with the worst people and very demanding clients to the job I most enjoy in the world, the best boss ever, I'm finding myself self grounded, her dog keeps me calm and my clients are very happy!

I just want one person to tell me that I didn't quit because I'm a quitter or that I felt like an imposter, I quit my job because it wasn't the right fit for me.

I'm off work with anxiety and depression right now and I was supposed to go back next week. My Dr thinks I need more time off and I'm not ready to go back. I have to tell my boss today and I'm dreading it. I won't get into trouble but he doesn't understand this stuff and I'm worried about his reaction. He might think I'm exaggerating and just trying to avoid having to work.

I left a job due to mainly a toxic work environment (and no room for advancement). One of my previous coworkers transferred into my new job and its being to feel like the same stuff different day and I'm at a loss. I don't want to switch jobs again but I can't take the gossip and the bad attitude and just her. 😤😩

I am severely unmotivated at work. I want to be busy and contribute but I distract myself instead. I don't know why I do this so much and it is becoming a real problem.

I'm getting a lot of support at work but I'm starting to worry that they'll get fed up of me or decide I'm not worth it and push me out.

Thought I was having a super productive day. Spent HOURS on some purchase documents and got everything to my team lead for review... was going to make the deadline. I was happy. She reviews my documents and goes "Do you think this supports our purchase!!" Well I thought it did, but I guess not. Proud moments turns to a fail in really fast

I struggle with drama at work. My first instinct is to run away. I feel a little trapped being a manager and am having to confront it. Feeling very anxious for the upcoming conversations I have to have.

I just got fired from my job that I hated yesterday. Yes, I hated it but this was not the ideal situation. I'm feeling like a huge loser for getting fired. I really planned on finding something else, but I was still getting my ducks in a row and perfecting my resume for too long. And now I have nothing. I'm in a very low place right now in my life and I don't even know where to go from here.

Anyone got any tips for handling emotions in work? I feel like it's impacting my career massively and I don't know how to control it anymore.
