Third interview today. Hopefully, 3rd time really is the charm.

I learned how to use the embossing machine at work. I was really afraid of messing up the books that needed to be embossed but I'm proud of myself for learning a new skill...and I didn't mess up any books!

I quit my job. Just like that. Do I have a backup plan? No. Am I worried about the future? Absolutely. But life is too short. I'd rather be jobless and find something that makes me happy, than be paid to be miserable and have panic attacks.

So I broke down the last couple of days, called in sick and allowed my feelings and thoughts to get the best of me. I needed that down time to just let things go. It was a good 2 days. Did a lot of reflections And thought processing. Ignored all work triggers. And now I'm going back to work tomorrow, all the negative feelings and anxieties are flooding in. But it's ok. These worries will turn into something positive tomorrow after I speak with my stakeholders.

Taking time off work. I don't think I'll want to go back. So many things are changing and I don't like them.

Everyday at work when a coworker is smiling when they're talking to me, or when a coworker walks past me smiling, all I can think is that they're laughing at some inside joke about me or story /one liner about me they heard ,etc. I also feel like my bosses don't take me seriously. Always selling me short. Occasionally I just go home early cause I can't take the anxiety and depressed feeling I get from it.

My manager doesn't seem to care that she drags everyone under the bus no matter what. We all try to help one another but we can only do so much. I feel like everything we do isn't good enough.

I am beyond overworked and no one in the company seems to understand when I talk about needing help. They just say "we understand". Really. Do you. So frustrating!!!

I hate working at my job. I'm a cashier and dealing with all those rude customers is something I don't look forward too.

I am a teller and made a mistake at work and ended up having derealization. I ended up banging my back on an open cabinet and all I could think is I deserve pain. I am the worst. I don't wanna be here. I don't wanna be anywhere. All of my accomplishments at work feel like nothing to me.

Bad thing about being competent at work is everyone throws their extra work on my plate when they actually get busy and don't want to handle it. Even tho I'm glued-to-my-desk-always-busy. It makes me feel less valued and more used. I can only hope they'll regret their laziness when I somehow find a better job in the far future.

I had to do some work today on the project that really kicked things off last year with anxiety and my first reaction was to freak out but then I actually got on with it and handled it pretty well. That's massive progress for me! :-)

Just had a really bad sleep that was full of anxious dreams. Now I'm forced to pretend that I'm fine and go to work. Being a cashier is horrible because you have to act like you're not actually dying inside. I just don't want to do life today.

I think I lost my job as a virtual teacher because I didn't screenshot something correctly. I feel like the dumbest person on the planet for doing something so simple incorrectly. Now I am going to pay the price on the best job I've had in a while💔

At least three times a day at work I think "I don't want to do this anymore", but I don't feel as though I can quit.

I'm at a point in my career where I'm more interested in having a good group to work with than being good. 😞

I can't believe how heartless some people are in the workplace when you admit that you have depression.

My boss and I have talked about working together at our next business venture... due to some changes at work, he told me today that he has to sign a non-compete contract this week or not keep his job. If he signs it, he couldn't hire me for a year.... I'm really upset and mad and depressed... I feel like my expected future just shifted a lot and it is completely out of my control.

Today was only my 2nd day at this new job I started (and about my 8th job already this yr) and I left not even an hour into the shift because I let my depression get the best of me. This is how I lost all of my other jobs I've tried keeping this year (2017)...

I had a co-worker tell me to leave my job as soon as I could. Some of my new found friends are leaving my job. I am a little confused as to how to proceed, because I do like my job but I don't like how my supervisors are handling things. Time will tell what is gonna happen.

I got all those responsibilities at the same time, teaching the new guys and I'm just... I've been here for only 4 months. I barely know anything about the programming language we use. I'm not that great. I feel like that at some point, somebody's going to see that I'm not that great...

Been a very challenging week at work but seem to be emerging mostly unscathed
