New Job


I ve been off work for 4 months.anxiety panick attack agorophobia and claustrophobia were taking my life away.i had cbt and medications.. I had to start looking for a new job cause me and my partner Coudn t afford it anymore.I didn t want to go back to work cause I was happy at home but at the same time I like to be indipendent.I been offered a job and everybody was congratulating me but I wasn't impressed lol!!not happy to have found a job.I started 3 days ago..I m not sleeping well and I have palpitations inthe morning.Yeaterday was the first day that I was ok.I suppose I ll have to get use to work again but at least there s not pressure on me or big resposabilities like in my old job that drove me mad.I still got lots of work to do on myself..still struggling on trains,scared to have panick attacks,or scared to go back on airplanes...I will have to stop too see my therapist cause I'm working long hours,I ll try to carry on by myself!few months ago I was even scared to go out of the house or be inside bymyself..I ve improved a lot so I might be able to carry on..hopefully ;-)
