I feel like my job/working in general really slowly makes me feel like my soul is dying. My depression heightens from not doing something meaningful and true to myself. I hardly ever feel like myself anymore and work sucks everything out of me to the point where I just do nothing and self medicate on weekends to feel something. I use to be able to use my creative skills as an outlet for my depression and to get back to me...and I feel like work has taken that from me too. Feeling low today.

Not sure if my job makes me unhappy, or eing unhappy makes me dislike my job. I go through so many emotions in a day it's hard to tell if I like it or should do something else. Tired of feeling so anxious and unsure

It's a new day and I have to say that I feel pretty hopeful. I think slowly but surely I'm beginning to learn to try not to build things up in my mind. I've had several examples now where I was starting to dread an upcoming call but when the actual call began, it wasn't that bad. I'd almost say this is... positivity? Anyway, I'm hoping to maintain this momentum. Fingers crossed

I'm tired of my coworkers labelling me as being nice and not being able to picture me getting mad. Why do they keep bringing it up? It makes me secretly upset to keep being judged. I try to be friendly to everyone...but it's like I don't fit in! I'm always initiating it, while others hardly ever say hi first, etc. I also like to get away at lunch time (because I don't really feel I belong) and sometimes get flak for taking off. Why don't I get any respect? What can I do besidesfindanotherjob?

I will soon have to go back to work. I don't know how to prepare myself to face the place and people who contributed to my depression and anxiety.

Working as a server is incredibly demeaning ... especially for a place that is somewhat sexist. It bothers me every day and makes me feel out of control to work there and be told to look a certain way and to be this fake person. I want a new job but I am so scared to quit and start something unfamiliar... I feel stuck :( doesn't help that I feel like an outsider there for not 'doing my hair properly, or wearing makeup or not bending over backwards for everyone there...'

I'm actually really afraid to go to work tomorrow. I'm afraid of dealing with people and hearing things that will trigger another anxiety attack.

I feel super anxious at work. My boss is very spastic and goes from super friendly to screaming and cursing at everyone for the slightest thing. I'm extremely unhappy here but cant leave until I have another job lined up and although I'm actively looking I feel like my anxiety just gets worse and worse the longer I stay here.

When you give in your notice. Every shift after is so brutal.

It's just so much stuff that I need to do, but I get this numbness in my body that makes me unable to do anything, which makes me even more stressed. My family is constantly on my ass and what I really need is some time alone but I never seem to get it.

I have an interview Saturday. I will be working in fast food if I get the job. How does everyone deal with the anxiety. I'm terrified of having to talk to strangers. I'm scared I'm going to mess up and embarrass myself.

There is one person at work that gets on my nerves. Just seeing them makes me on edge and it's not like they did anything to me, or anything wrong. I just don't know why I can't stand being around them especially when the person talks... it's driving me crazy...

I'm waiting to hear back about a job I interviewed for and really want. I'm so scared of not getting a (good) offer because I don't know what else I'm going to do with my life if I don't. I took my current part time job just to help the organization, but I feel trapped and suffocated because it's not what I want to do or what I'm good at.

Lazy Coworker: *sneezes* Everyone: bless you! Are you okay? Can we get you a tissue? Me: *sneezes* Everyone: *silent* Coworker: close up by yourself I wanna leave early. THE LEAST YOU COULD DO IS SAY BLESS YOU AND MAKE ME FEEL LESS LIKE AN OUT CAST

I need a holiday. Can't afford one. Can't take a day off and stay at home because my thoughts are not positive ones. What do you recommend?

I’ve been given a new promotion and more hours and more money, but I’m hoping the new responsibilities won’t effect my anxiety and my school work

Dear God they’re trying to get me to learn code and programming without really actually teaching me. Head-Desk

I have problems with focusing on a task and actually finalizing it. I get super excited, start with a huge explosion of energy and inspiration but suddenly it dies on the way. Its disturbing me.
