I wish I was able to make life more than this constant cycle of going to work and coming home.

To all the teachers, teaching assistants and support staff starting back for the new autumn term this week. We can do it. We must get the work life balance correct. I love my job but I also need to recharge to do it properly. Here’s to October Half term. Xx

I wake up so filled with anxiety that I can’t even breathe. I’m not able to eat breakfast and I feel nauseous. My career choice is just to overwhelming. I know I put a lot of pressure on myself but that’s just who I am. I wish I could just calm down. This is my second year in this field and it’s reallt effecting my mental health. I don’t know what to do. I went to college to do this. I don’t know what I’m going to do help

I got honest with my boss about having a difficult week personally - I decided to tell the truth rather than hide - because i’m Working on being honest even if people think less of me. I’m true to my feelings and myself.

I'm finally getting the hang of my job and it's not so stressfull. I'm hopeful things will keep getting better and that's a huge relief

Stayed home from work today due to a migraine and being exhausted. Anyone else get incredible guilt/anxiety when you stay home sick? I’m worried that people are talking about me when I’m not there or they think I’m faking.

Tomorrow is back to work and I’m freaked. I want to do something but I’m not sure what....I can’t even put it in words I’m so filled with fear. 😐

I want to quit my job because of my autoimmune issues but need to pay my credit card bills monthly. The stress of needing to work more hours than I physically can + being tight on money contributes to my flareups :( I was fine all weekend until reality hit me again. I feel like I will never be able to heal.

I have a horrible tendency to suffer alone. Last week I opened up to a coworker about the things I find challenging at work. To my surprise she not only understood but empathized. I wish I’d reached out sooner

Looks like I'm probably gonna lose my job as it's been made very clear to me by my boss that they don't think my performance is good enough. This had been brought up before and I've been actively trying to improve but it seems it's not enough. I feel completely crushed and deflated. My self-esteem is in the gutter and I have no idea how I'm gonna get another job as I've already been looking but can never get past the interviews as I get so nervous. Feel like crap.

Still waiting to hear back about this job. The waiting is making me anxious & doubtful that I’ll get the job. I just really hope I get it.

Love my job but irritated with how management runs things and constantly acts like it’s okay to have two people doing 500 things at once. If I’m going to be doing all of this and stressing myself out over this can I least get a pay raise? Sheesh

Sometimes you just have one of those days where u just want to quit and say the heck with this place. Today was one of those days. Just venting, that’s all. A new day brings new opportunities (and hopefully no more drama).

This is my second year in this position and honestly I’m finding it too emotionally exhausting on me. I have a passion for it but my mental health just isn’t good for this. I’m so overwhelmed and I can’t seem to leave work problems at work. I always bring them home with me. How do I separate the two? For my job I have to check my work email frequently but I tend to overdo it. Help

I start my new job in two days, I'm so anxious. Any tips on how to relax? It's not easy when you have social anxiety. 😧

Really anxious about work due to a co-worker who blows up over the smallest thing. She sees nothing wrong with yelling at someone who has made her angry, which seems so childish. The boss has a ‘that’s just the way she is’ mindset, and she’s worked for them for a really long time. I just live in fear of pissing her off, and I’m worried that I did something today that’s gonna push her over the edge in the morning. Resentful that she makes me feel this way when I’m just doing my job.

I’m new to my job. It’s day 12. I am so overwhelmed. I feel like it’s sink or swim, even though I’ve got great people around me. All I crave is validation...and feel like a total failure if I’m not getting it. I carry dread around with me every afternoon/night/weekend thinking about going back in the next week and failing.

I wish I could finally find a job. I want so much to have a position that allows me to help others. But i am totally lost. 😞 I studied english and German at university but nobody wants to employ me. No organisation, no newspaper, no university. No one. I can't even work as a teacher because I have a master of arts degree and not a m.ed. degree. It's hopeless and I don't know how I'll ever be able to make a living 😢

I’m so unhappy with the job that I am in and I can’t switch jobs until I build up my credit enough to buy a house but I’m so emotionally and mentally drained and exhausted
