    Boss anxiety

    Work and bosses are a really major stressors for me, so you are going to hear me talk about this a lot! I am probably just going to go on and on in this thread over many days and weeks if it stays up. I have a good boss now, who is rational and calm and clear and educated, but I feel he has...

    Work anxiety

    I have been not working for about two years while I was doing other things, and now I am really worried about returning to work. How is everyone else about this? I am worried about not performing well, about disappointing people like my boss, about having to look too happy, about getting...

    Unsure about how "open" to be at work

    Afternoon all, I'm posting to ask, or get a gauge on how wise it'd be to open up about certain parts of my mental health. I'm recently promoted into a job, my boss is great and supportive of my progression. Work has known for a while I get mad levels of anxiety, and my confidence is in bits...

    boss told me to be more polite on emails

    so now I start with 'Thanks for your reply' and end with 'Let me know if I can be of further assistance.' I guess it is kinda funny. Truth is I don't care but I just want a quiet life.

    Transference

    I am currently experiencing transference with my boss at work, and am wondering if other people can relate. I saw my boss as a mother figure and relied on her for most of my emotional support. She was like my mum and my best friend. Recently I have had a meeting with her and HR, due to my...

    Do I have OCD? Can you tell me?

    I don't understand.

    In January this year, I had a review at work. My boss mentioned that she had noticed over a couple of months how I had been up one minute and down the next. I considered this and told her it was just that we were very busy and I had just been working hard and occationally had time to chat and...

    Still ashamed.

    This might be a long one. Last year during the summer I worked in a small shop that sold things like food, fruit, drinks, snacks, etc. It was a full week job (even the weekends) and because I have depression and mild anxiety (+I'm naturally extremely introverted) I felt emotionally drained every...

    Remember me saying a while ago about the person in work being a bully about moaning that disabled staff are treated specially when they shouldnt be paid the same as "normal" workers because they get away with doing less? And the boss did nothing when I reported it? Well, I wasnt there but...
