After several agonizing years of avoidance, today I started my very first job. My social anxiety has kept me TERRIFIED to work, but I decided to take this opportunity to push myself. I’m very anxious and overwhelmed, but most of all I feel proud. I did it.

Gave the job 9 months. I'm freeing myself of that shackle and am going to deliver my notice tomorrow. Thank goodness I have money saved up for it.

I’m introverted & have anxiety, interviews kill me. Especially when it’s a group interview! Anyone with me? Or have advice?

I took a new job after an awesome job interview. I thought I’d be nervous, but it went so well. I had so much stress from my job, I hope this is the new start I hoped for!

If I'm quiet at work I’m scared people will think I’m stuck up but if I try and speak I’m scared that I’ll annoy everyone...does anyone else have this problem? :(

It's time for everyone's favorite game: Is This Job Bad or Is Lesivel Not Right For It? Getting so sick of playing my luck on good/bad days of the job but looking and interviewing is such an anxiety trigger

Working with students and having them lie about you to your superior is not great. I’m stressed because I have a hard time defending myself in the moment. I kinda just freeze. I feel like I’m going to loose my job. It’s so frustrating. I’m trying so hard. 😡

I’m a few hours away from dealing with a bully at work...no sleep tonight. I hope it’s over today and they deal with this appropriately or it will be my last day with this company, as no job is worth the stress I’ve been through

Put in my two weeks' notice today but the owner wasn't even around to see it, I don't have her number, and we don't even have next week's schedule out which starts in two days. This is indicative of WHY I quit.

I really dread work. I truly feel hurt by everyone I work with. I’m new to this job and there is zero support. I feel like a failure all the time because these women just passive aggressively say things to me. I don’t really know how to get out of this. The trouble is that the money is good. Helo

I’ve been of if work for about a month and return in two weeks. I am terrified at what I’m going to be walking into. A coworker called me and filled me in about the two people in my department who quit and the new person who doesn’t know how to answer the phone. Ugh! I’m not ready

I posted here the other day about how nervous I was about giving my notice at work. Once I did it I felt great. Today my boss emailed me what time to come into work (since I am a nanny) and she sounded not only pissed but not like she ever has before. I’m worried I’m going to get back lash on Monday for quitting. Any tips if that does happen?

I’m having a hard time at work at the moment. I feel like my managers punching bag. This has to be the first job I’ve had where your work ethic and productivity does not matter I get called in the office on a daily basis now as I’ve done something wrong. No lie yesterday’s was standing at my desk to stretch my legs but still taking calls. I’ve come home today and had my first panic attack in 4 months to the point where I’ve thrown up. I feel like I’m drowning. How do I stop feeling like this?

I’m over this job but cannot find anything else in my field at the moment. I’m sick of my coworker having mood swings and ignoring me when she’s upset because our clients prefer me over her. I try to take a more calming approach with the clients and they react more positive when they see my face more often on the floor. That is why they prefer me. Makes me feel like I’m wasting time defending her when she ignores me because she’s upset the clients treat her a certain way.

My boss talked to me about a parent who complained about a comment I left on a social media post- i was concerned students were engaging in racist behavior. The parent was saying the comment was implying we were against free speech.

I have such a hard time not comparing my work to others, but when someone can preform a task faster or better then me, it makes me feel less then. Or when I have a run have issues I always feel like I completely messed up even if they showed me it was the instrument and not me.

Just got emotional in front of staff at work today because I could handle a situation. I feel so upset at myself. I’ve been told I. Too emotional and I tend to cry before I yell. I feel so hopeless at this job.

I’m full time employed. I have just been offered a place on a research expedition to Mexico for six weeks leaving in June. I don’t know how to approach my boss to ask for time off, especially considering I have booked (and already paid for) a 3 weeks holiday in November.
