In response to a confession. My work anxiety has been super high lately too. Mainly because I feel like my company is trying to replace me (I've been well-assured from my boss that's not true) but I can't help but feeling like whenever there is a hiccup in any process, it comes down on me. There was a batch of product I had to custom formulate and it still failed specification after I custom formulated it due to the manufacturing team overfilling the capsules. I just hate how stressful my position is and I feel obligated to check email all the time whenever I take a day off. I've had to take a few extra days off unpaid this year on FMLA so that I can get a chronic health condition treated and I feel like stress just never ends.

In response to a confession. Time to start working on my exit plan. I've complained here numerous times here (thanks for listening!. The work culture will ever improve. An honest nonprofit with a mission I love, but we'll always be underpaid, overworked, scrappy, etc.

My work anxiety has been through the roof lately with an increase in workload. I can't seem to relax, working OT, and not doing any self-care. My heart races before bed, have work nightmares, and wake up not feeling rested at all.

Last week I got an email from work: "On behalf of the xxx, I am happy to inform you that you have been selected as our next xxxxx! Please fill out this questionnaire by answering 8-9 questions, and provide 3-4 pictures of yourself/your life, and we will ....". I don't want to be a sourpuss, but I have no interest in working late answering questions, and I *certainly* don't want to dig through photos to find stuff that is work appropriate. So I wrote back "Thanks, but I'm too busy to accept your nomination". I just found out that they moved on to my coworker, who did everything they asked, only to find out that she also needs to write an essay as to why she deserves the award. She is completely stressed out, and going to spend the rest of the night working on this thing. I feel like I dodged a bullet. Honestly, if you want to recognize someone, why make them jump through hoops for it?

My CW got pregnant right after she started working at our company and so doesn't qualify for FMLA after she has the baby. She only gets 3 weeks off by using up all her PTO and our company offered her the option of "quitting" on paper and then coming back. She refused and instead wanted to WFH for 4-6 weeks. We are scientists and do a lot of hands on work. I know why they won't let her WFH...who can work FT with a newborn and a toddler 3 weeks post partum? Especially when we only have about 4 hours worth of computer work to do a day anyway. She's pissed but she was also trying to go around the system.

Going on 10 years now of having to put up with the department bully. Today was a rough day. I wish I could pound her hideous face into the ground.

Why the hell would you schedule a WEEKLY hair appointment on a weekday when you have to work? YOU HAVE A JOB! If you don't LIKE having a job, then for the love of everything holy, please QUIT so we can get someone who can reach the top drawer of the filing cabinet without throwing out their shoulder. Also who the fuck goes to get their hair done weekly? Oh right, nevermind. I don't care, I'm not rescheduling my fucking appointment. ONE appointment I want to go to, and I'm not rescheduling it. You've had 739 appointments already this year it seems like. And you're late at least twice a week. SICK OF YOU!

I'm pretty certain my coworkers don't really like me. I tend to be overly task focused at work and I sometimes take things too seriously. I also don't like to hang out with them after work or any of that stuff. I try to be a cooperative team player but I also tend to steamroll other people's ideas with mine. I hate that I'm like this but I am trying to improve. I just wish I were more easygoing and organized with my thoughts.

You know that gif/meme of the white weird looking creature with his arms outstretched in two different positions and on both the caption is just WHY? ..... Yeah, that's what I feel like 90% of the time when I get off the phone with people. I just said the word "Why?" out loud like six times after a phone conversation that I just don't even understand why it even happened.
