I feel so reluctant to work. I feel useless and worthless when I make mistakes. I feel horrible for calling out because I get too anxious to go to work. Taking mental days just means more piled on work tomorrow. I feel like rolling up into a ball and hiding. I’m too embarrassed to show my face because I’ve taken too many days off. I think people think I’m faking it. I wish I could stop feeling this way.

Sometimes it’s hard to keep the anxiety from telling stories in my head about whether or not I am good at my job or whether everyone else is better than me.

Sometimes I have dead periods at my job and I get stressed cause I have nothing to do and I'm afraid I'm going to get in trouble for doing nothing but I've already told my boss that I don't have anything to do right now and he just says that he will give me something soon.

It’s so hard to not take things personal especially when a customer has has been so nice from the beginning then is so rude because they can’t have something their way. I can’t wait to retire and get out of customer service.

Work is stressful but it is not your whole life so son't let it take over and feel like it is and consume yourself in it so much that you hit a breaking point.Your job is only one fraction and factor of your life there are so many 9ther factors to consider.

I struggle with being a people pleaser, but knowing I need to be assertive sometimes. I’ve made progress, but it can be difficult.

It’s so hard to actually focus on your job and get stuff done when you have a bad anxiety attack and it takes everything out of you

I'm a teacher for a summer camp. I have an entire day planned for my students. Today I had to take on an extra 2 hour activity. One hour for first, second, and third grade. The second hour for the kindergarten class. I was tired because at least one of those hours should have been a prep-time for me. Despite that, I was proud of myself for asking for appropriate compensation from my boss. I don't mind taking on extra activities, but I finally placed a value on my willingness to do extra at work.

When do you stop covering for Co workers slack? I can't stand things not to be done, but it's starting to affect my everyday life. I just do it instead of complaining, while others play on Facebook......

Even when I'm meditating, work intrudes, forcing it's way in and filling me with anxiety and worry. It's too much, but I don't know how to fix it.

Tired and stressed. We had an employee call in sick and we were WEIRDLY BUSY. I almost had a kid run out the building because I was trying to run Merchandise and the entrance and the family at merch then told me it was their kid in a deadpan tone after seeing me RUN FULL SPEED TO KEEP THEIR KID FROM WALKING OUTSIDE INTO THE PARKING LOT. SCREW PEOPLE.

I am a therapist and I constantly worry that my depression and anxiety is getting in the way of me doing my job. On one hand it helps because I can relate to what my clients are going through. But at the same time it it hard because my job has me feeling what my clients are going through with them and as much as I try to separate my work life and my personal life sometimes people and their problems stick with you. Managing my own stress, anxiety and depression on top of that is really hard.

I literally just told another person I could cover their shift after acknowledging that I need to stop offering/giving help because it is physically, emotionally and mentally wearing me down. I just finished crying my eyes out... I can't say no and now I'm working 8 hours tomorrow. *Sigh*

Managing people who do not really care about their success and progress in the company can be so frustrating.

Ended up talking to my boss about a coworker that was causing me some stress at work. I hesitated because I try my hardest to stay professional and work with all personalities but after a few weeks of stress it is a relief to get my concerns off my chest.

Well today was going okay until my employer got home real late and it kinda ruined the plans for today. And put me in a bad mood. On the good side my husband still helped me carry out my plans for the day. I'm exhausted!

I just hate the system of work, it's always the same routine, monotonous, it's driving me mad. I really dread the weekends.

My work likes to play favorites. They tell you to go after promotions but you can't move anywhere in my department.

I’m the only waitress for my restaurant today and we get so busy on friday that we have a full dining room and have to have long waits. I’m scared I won’t be able to do it alone

I'm at the point where I am just so unhappy at work. Would you rather stay at a job that pays you well but you dread going to every day? Or find a new job that pays much less but be happier? They say money doesnt buy you happiness but it sure does help bring stability = less worry every month. Thoughts?
