I hate those moments when I'm at work but struggling to keep anxiety under control and fighting back tears

I'm at work and I just feel so empty, like I'm on autopilot. My eyes kind of hurt, my head feels eh, and I feel drained. I just have to keep telling myself that I've been through this before and I just need to weather it.

Does anyone else feel like they are a fraud at work? I try so hard to do my best, but it seems like the harder I try the worse I preform. Maybe I am just putting too much pressure on myself, but I want to do good. I want to like my job.

Ever been stuck in a toxic work environment and you cannot get out? Applying for jobs and interviews do not turn out and you just get stuck in all the negativity and blame of others

I survived my first day of training for my new job. It was a breeze and everyone was friendly. The person training me informed me today that the person training me tomorrow can be a little harsh and expect you to learn everything in one day. He told me not to take anything personal, but I know me and I know that I will. My anxiety has kicked in ever since, and I can't help but think that I'm going to do an awful job tomorrow. I just want to get it over with so that I can go back to bed.

Has anyone else ever felt like people at their work are just selfish? Why can't we all just get along and help each other? Instead of throwing each other under the bus and trying to blame one another...I just can't understand it.

I've applied to almost 500 jobs and can't get hired because I'm not in the right location... I just graduated! I'll move wherever.

Tomorrow I am going back to work after being off for 8 weeks. I am worried about going back, and not looking forward to the conversations about why I left. Nothing has changed and I still hate my job...but I can't find work anywhere else. I'm stuck in a loop of hating my job but needing the money to survive. I wish I could just snap out of how I feel about this place.

Thinking about quitting my job due to stress and anxiety..I can barely breathe just knowing I have to go back on Mon. I barely kept myself together all week and cried uncontrollably several times in front of everyone. I feel so incompetent and ashamed. I know being a new nurse is tough for everyone, but when do I decide that it's just not right for me? I know it takes time but it's not fair to my patients or coworkers that I can barely function at work. I never want to show my face there again.

I'm a Starbucks Supervisor, for four years now, and my biggest issue has been that I'm a perfectionist. I've been the main closer for the past six months. I'm proud to say this is the first night I've left with it being les than perfect. It's still a very good close and I'm not as stressed as I usually am. I even paced myself instead of getting everything done as quickly as possible. It feels very relieving.

I've been in the education field for almost nine yrs minus the three yrs I was not able to work due to seizures but still held my certificates so I count it , today was one of the best days , I received concert tickets from the pta just for being a good hard worker, this school year has been rough , problems with a coworker meant I had to move schools even though I wasn't at fault,this school has welcomed me and today was more proof that I'm not all to blame ,I'm a good person and a hard worker.

I sometimes get so overwhelmed with the tasks my boss gives me to do, so lately, I have tried to ask myself "is this too much right now?" before I say yes-- and if it is, I try to suggest another, less time consuming way to get it done, or ask for a longer delay, or even ask if she can actually take care of it, considering I have X and Y I'm hoping to focus on. It works so much better than I would have expected!

I went on a job interview at a vet office and the woman made it seem like I was 100% getting the job. After not hearing back for two weeks, I finally called and she told me they didn't need me. Why didn't they need me? Why aren't I good enough? What did I do wrong? I feel like such a disappointment and a failure to everyone around me. Especially my boyfriend and my dad. I'm such a fu*k up. :( I'll never be good enough. How will I ever get back out there and try again? :( I'm so heart broken. :(

I've been at my job for a little over three months now so I am still at that stage of, new person status kinda, just the fear of thinking I'm doing something wrong already....but trying to calm myself by saying if I was I'm sure they would have corrected me right away.

Nothing like an upcoming work plane trip to bring a sure and certain feeling of doom! :( I'm trying to meditate and imagine myself on the plane just breathing every day for the next week.

I've taken some time off work and it's honestly so nice. I'm able to really focus on my schooling which is awesome!

I've always been one to take negative comments said by others about myself to heart. I easily get broken down when people say mean things about me. Today, I heard from someone that some of my co-working are talking bad about me... calling me stuck up and cocky, when I have done nothing wrong but pay attention to my own work. It hurts that even someone I thought I was friends with agreed with the negative comments. I'm trying so hard to let it go... but I can't, leaving me feel really down.

My boss doesn't listen when I say I'm overloaded and keeps adding to it. The internal politics are getting crazy and are actively preventing me doing my job. And my boss has been so focussed on making me do other stuff that now the main part of my job has fallen behind and I'm playing catch up. But he doesn't want to give me the time to do so

I just left the office to take a walk around the warehouse. Our Controller is always so rude and made an unnecessary comment. It upset me.
