Does anybody ever get the feeling that work is now about competition and not about helping each other get the job done🤨

I hate my job. I am underpaid and under appreciated. I wish I wasn't so tired all the time so I can apply for anything.

Just got fired because my manager had a crush on me and seen he couldn’t get me to sleep with him and started acting different with me. I feel so powerless.

It’s so hard to find a job when your anxiety limits your options, but I decided I’m going to push past and maybe go out of my comfort zone a little. I just need confidence

Working in a family restaurant brings a whole new world of stress, especially when you're underpaid and treated badly

Thankyou everyone for your quotes, kind words and just making me feel like im not alone... I’m off sick with Work related stress. I never thought this would happen but it has. But I’m determined to get better! And this is the first step.

Not looking forward to going back to work this week. Nursing is not what I want to do for the rest of my life. I thought I would like taking care of others but it’s amazing how under appreciated nurses really are !

Work takes up all my time just to pay rent and I don't want to work in this area at all, I wish I could be progressing in something I have an interest in.

After being in a comfortable job that did not pay well, I took a new job making more money. I thought this would help relieve some financial stress, but I find myself having much more anxiety and now am dealing with a passive/agressive boss. Feeling regretful and overwhelmed. 😔

Im still working on the Book adaption of a screenplay I wrote. Been frustrated for not being done with the book. In therapy, I was advised to only focus on the book but I find myself stressed since a few meetings for the film version—the Script—is coming up this Saturday and next week. I even took the rest of the week off for my day job so I could focus on writing. I’m just worried the Book is going to take me longer again :(

I have been working from home for several months because of a car wreck. I got a new car and am going back to the office starting the new year. I have anxiety about the commute (which was when I got into the horrible wreck) and anxiety about being around so many people again (I am introverted). I hate it because I know I can do my job remotely but I know my manager will never provide me that option consistently. DREADING GOING BACK IN!!!

I’m finding it hard to escape thoughts about my new job even during winter vacation. I’m hoping the second year of teaching is less stressful.

I'm home on winter break and my work keeps calling for me to come in. I'm so nervous to say no to them but I need a break, especially with how some of the residents act towards us in the department.

Not having a job bothers me to the point I want to cry. Not being productive adds to my anxiety and anticipating bills makes me depressed. Then I wonder who's gonna hire a middle aged woman who's been outta work for 4 years.

I have been trying to quit my job for a long time, but the job market is pretty saturated and I don't have enough experience to get the kind of jobs I truly want. I feel stuck: I can't move forward because of lack of experience, but I don't have the luxury of doing low-paid work to get that experience. Ugh.

So we did Secret Santa at work, which let’s be honest, is almost always an awkward experience. But to avoid some of that tension, we wrote suggestions for gifts we would like along with our names. I wrote geek culture type stuff: comic books, pop figures, Harry Potter, etc! I got fuzzy pink slippers & perfume instead. I feigned appreciation & later complained online at home. My gift-giver found out & is now asking for her money back. Pointed out no one wanted to get me anything & pitied me.

I have a therapist that doesn't really help me with my deep-rooted issues but my mom likes him as a person I don't know what to do he's a lovely person but not good at his job.

A few days ago I cried at work. I’m going on a trip to see my sick grandma and was having trouble finding people to cover me, so my boss was helping me out. I felt bad that I had asked so last minute, so I decided to talk to her about the reason for my trip so she would see that I’m not irresponsible and it’s just the circumstances. But when I tried talking about my grandma I broke out in tears in front of everyone. My boss got in trouble with her superior bc he thinks she wasn’t helping me.
