New job advice please
« on: May 14, 2014, 11:03:11 AM »
I have forced myself to get a job. It's one I have always wanted. But when I went for the interview I felt like I was gonna pass out and got dizzy and palms sweaty. I had to fight off an anxiety attack. I start today and I can already tell it'll be rough to get over it initially. My stomach is feeling upset and I have an overall very scared feeling. I'm so afraid I'll have a dizzy spell or panic attack in front of them.

Also I need to eat before I go but I have zero appetite. I don't feel like I could even choke food down.

Maybe try and go for a walk or do some exercise to help with the appetite. And just keep in mind, you can do this. If it helps, be up front about it. Tell them straight how you feel and how things are with you. They'll understand. And just focus on doing the work. Escape your mind, get your body working.

Hope this helped to some extent :)

Hi JT,

I hope your first day went well.  Starting a new job can be really scary, so feeling anxious is very normal. I start a new job myself next week, and I'm pretty worried too.

Just be kind to yourself, and give yourself time to adjust. You will be ok  :bigsmile:.

CONGRATS, on your new job!

Breathe deeply & while you inhale say to yourself - "CALM"
Hold your breath
Exhale s-l-o-w-l-y & say to yourself - "DOWN"

Do this (3) times.
It WILL help you calm down, de-stress, unwind & relax.
