Let them know you are anxious. Even a person without an anxiety disorder would anxious going for an interview. I am sure when the time comes you will be just fine. We can imagine we would be worse. Come the day we actually do so much better. I am sure the same will be with the job if you get it. You will get to know others. You will settle into the job. It is just your mind thinking ahead of time.

Take some time the next few days to practice some relaxation techniques, even it's just some basic stretching and light breathing. If you're starting to get really anxious in the interview, wait for the interviewer to ask a question, then say, "That's a good question. Let me think about that." Then while you've got a second, take one or two nice deep breaths and proceed. And remember: no matter what happens, it's not the end of the world.
