I also told him yesterday that something's gotta give because this client has asked me to do more work. So there's that.

I just need to maintain my composure. When I get overly stressed, I can crumble and it shows. I need to make sure I don't cry.

I do not handle stress very well. I can manage it up to a point, but then when it's too much, I fall apart. I hate that. I wish I could just manage it all better... but it's what I deal with.

Thank you, Sisabel. You're an angel!!


You’re most welcome. I fall apart too. On one hand I wish I could handle it better. On the other hand I think we all have our limits and that is to be respected. Major Work Anxiety

Agreed!! We all have our limit!

Omgosh... my boss took that annoying client off my plate today!!! I am not taking it personally at all either. I didn’t want to deal with them, he told me it wasn’t the best match, so he’s giving them to my colleague.. and I don’t mind whatsoever! Lol. Yay!!! I feel SO relieved.

WOW... I am SO relieved. I cried at the end of my work day as I walked out of work. Tears of gratitude. Now I know this client has been a huge stressor, but I had no idea until I was crying, just how much it's impacted my happiness at work. I've been really unhappy as a direct result of them AND for my plate being overfull. Thank goodness.

Well, I am relieved, but it turns out I'm not rid of this client just yet. I have to carry a call with them today and finish up one last project for them. My boss basically lied to me about them being off my plate this week. Or he misled me. I am anxious all over again that they're going to pick apart my work (again) during this call.

GOOD NEWS IS:

They liked my work!!! HOORAYYY!!!!! This is a very nit picky, difficult client, so the fact that they both accepted AND liked my work says a lot. PHEW.

BAD NEWS IS:

I still have to deal with them for a few more weeks, so the anxiety may continue. GRRRRR.

I'm going to try to hold onto the positives here, and just hang in there til I can be done with them.

Omg. I am SO upset right now. My boss told me this difficult client is coming off my plate, which was supposed to happen this week. Then he asked me to complete something else for them, due this week, then on top of that, he now is extending my work for them for another THREE WEEKS. He says it’s because “you did such a great job with the last project”.

Then just now I saw that someone from the difficult client company’s reviewed my professional LinkedIn profile. WTF???????? They’re now looking to see what my professional background is?? WHY hire us at all if they’re SO skeptical of us???????? Still?????? I’ve been working with them for two months now. They liked what I handed in last week. So what’s their problem? Why look to see what my resume looks like??? I’m beside myself!

And this is not helping my anxiety!!!! I thought my workload would be less and it’s not. Grrrrrrrrr.

So sorry to the people of the PC community. I vented a lot of my anger about my situation at work. I didn't mean to scare people away from responding. Oopsy.

I woke up anxious about work again, and it's Sat, a day off when I should be relaxing but I'm not. GRRRR, UGH.

I am realizing how things are truly run in this company. They say one thing, then do another. They change like the wind.

I just spoke with my mother and told her what's going on at work.

She said I can be very "rigid" especially when I feel overloaded. And I can be! Yikes. I knew this about myself, but to have her tell me this, well, it was like staring myself in the mirror.

Ok, so I am rigid. I have to learn how to go with the flow of how this company changes like the wind and just deal with it better. ARGH. I don't LIKE it, but I have to DEAL with it and be OK with it somehow.

This is a BIG challenge for me. Kind of funny too, because I tend to think of myself as more of a "go with the flow" kind of person. I guess I'm not! lol.
