Hi, guys, i got a job. And i have survived the first day. The company is good and location is good, and a lot of things are good about the company. But i don't know yet if i manage...it was very hectic, and i feel dead now...I hope i will learn ...and catch up...and they will be happy with me. I was very-very-very scared...did not sleep all night before this first day. I still feel shaken and very tired. I am excited and anxious at the same time.

thank you to everyone, who was thinking of me today. It worked!!!

Love you all.

I know that feeling! Congratulations on getting through the first day! I did the same thing, I didn’t sleep at all the night before my first day. I never do. One day at a time

I’m the same way. I have to constantly refocus on one day at a time. Easier said than done.

it is nice to feel understood, really. I am already critical of myself, i got stuck with 1 task and i got to the bottom of it, but it took longer than i wanted it to be. No one said a word, but my own internal judge is criticizing me already.

Oh yes that’s me too. I obsess and doubt myself. I literally had visions of myself collapsing on the floor in panic and everyone staring at me lol. Our worst fears are never what really happens.

you know i have read now a few of your posts. one was about exercising...and i am going to exercise now for 30 mins...it usually helps ...not too intense, i am using you tube ...and i have some issue with my foot, so i do exercises on a chair program, which is for people with injured foot. But it helps me to feel better mentally and it might help me now relax, and i would feel i did something for myself.

Oh yes. Adding exercise into your life is free medicine and it boosts our energy and confidence. Good idea!

Congratulations on your new job.

Thank you, yes, trying to remember about baby steps. I do expect too much of myself after just 1 day.

Thank you. Accounting. I have to survive... don’t feel very good yet, just surviving one day at a time.

Well , that is quite an accomplishment- and with a professional that is in demand.

Thank you, now I have to be able to keep it.
