I hate that I work 9 hours a day then go home and only have 3 or 4 to myself to rush and get things done at home before I have to go to bed to get up at 5 am and start the cycle all over again. I feel like my life is all work and no pleasure.

I almost cannot handle my job anymore. I keep having to excuse myself so I can breathe. I feel like I’m being suffocated for 11 hrs a day. I’m glad I found this outlet to express my feelings😩

I have a job interview tomorrow and I would really love to get this job and I think I would be perfect for it, but I am worried I won't be able to show my full potential

I either do too much or too little. I'm always in danger of getting fired. I'm never comfortable and I'll never be happy.

Does anyone have any tips on how to not cry, when you feel on the verge of tears for long periods of time? I’m at work and can’t really get away. We’re super busy now so I can’t take time off. I just feel so alone, unaccomplished, like I’m never good enough, and I’m so tired.

I’m just tired. I love my job. It pays me well. But it’s physically demanding, and my body is so sore and exhausted. I have a late shift tonight, and tomorrow I’ll be on OT. I’ll be grateful when this particular conference is over. 🙏🏼

Work was a fight tonight. I was fighting my anxiety. I'm trying to fight my negative thoughts.

I've worked in my field for 10 years now and I've met many women along the way. Women are more predominant in this field than men. I've also had the unfortunate experience of having several negative experiences with women who put down other women. Why can't we empower and support one another? My supervisor and I have had a really rough relationship and I can't tell whether it's my race, whether our personalities don't mesh or whether she has it out for me. It's been hard to find a resolution.

I’m really frustrated today. Being a caregiver has to be one of the most difficult and rewarding jobs all in one. Ugh

I thought my manager at work was gonna be mad at me because i forgot to do something monday and she asked if we could talk and i was like oh shit what am i gonna say😂 but she just wanted to know me how i was as a person because i don't talk a lot i'm socially awkward and she said she wants to help me as a person and at work to maybe overcome my social awkwardness, i hear a lot of shit about her but she showed me a other side i didn't know exist

I have such an overbearing, micromanaging supervisor! (I'm a social worker). Everything I do is wrong. I can't work over without permission, can't leave early, can't work w/o pay, I'm expected to manage to get 230 people to come to appointments, see 16 a day, and still manage to make phone calls, documents, assessments, manage crises, all without working over. I was doing great until we got a new manager, and now I just want to quit. 😠

Every morning it’s like a battle to go into work. I have anxiety and feel like I’m on edge. It’s crazy that the actual work is super easy for me, but casual things like going to eat or hanging out,& meetings are what I’m most afraid of. If I was stuck in a room with just my work I would be totally fine.. it doesn’t help that the office is an open work environment. Rapid heart rate, lump in throat, headache, sensitive gag reflex, all thee wonderful symptoms you can think of..

I get up every morning lately dredding going to work. I am a manager and i feel so not in control of anything. My management above me provides very helicopter support and rarely gives praise when praise is due, but is ready to bite my neck off at the slightest misstep. The climate is bad and growth further than where I am now is small to say the least. I want to leave, but the money keeps me there and I am limited as such. Its hard to want to like your job and to just not.

I have been doubting myself so much since I was fired, but I need to remember it was the opinion of a few not many

Feeling very unmotivated. I have lots to do but no drive. Seems like I get more done in the morning but after lunch I just can't focus anymore.
