    Ive not had many jobs but after making it on the career ladder I want to know if this is normal, my job makes me feel:

    Sick- physically sick this morning I nearly puked up

    Constantly nervous and on edge

    Dread of walking through the doors in the morning

    Wanting the weekend to never end

    Is this normal working life issues? Do other people feel like this? I ask because Im getting to the point where I may have to give it up tbh the area of work isnt for me, the only issue is finding a new career path..

    What industry are you working in? Doesn't sound entirely normal unless you work under extreme conditions where your every move is analysed.

    Last two points, very normal. I'd think a lot of people think that.

    First two points far more worrying. If you are being physically sick and are always on edge, that isn't good nor normal.

    As someone who has worked in a number of truly awful jobs and is now in one I enjoy - emphatically NO, that is not normal, or at least that is not okay.

    Most people get that "oh well, work again!" feeling from time to time but you shouldn't be walking up to the door feeling dread and wishing the weekend would never end and the first two things you listed are really not okay. There are other jobs out there that won't make you feel that way - you just have to have the courage to leave your current job and find them.

    It's normal if you're in the wrong job and/or the wrong field entirely. If it makes you feel that bad, then I think you should start exploring other options. It's not OK to feel like that, esecially if you have the choice to move in a different direction. Nobody is expected to have the same type of job for life any more. Start looking and good luck.

    If it helps, I've learned to trust my gut in such matters after 20+ years of being an unhappy employee, and it's working out fine so far.
