I am starting a new job tomarrow, after not working for almost 3 years.  I am so scared that I am going to fail!!!  I want to go back to work, but my mind and body are telling me no!!!!!
I'm just looking for some support and positive words, I don't get them at home only from my daughters.
I have to get up at 6:30am tomarrow and I am a sleeper, I usually wake up around 9 or 10am,  HELP!!!  I know I can do this but in the back of my mind, I can't. I have always been a failure at things and never go anywhere.  This is my chance!!!!!
 
Just need some support from my friends here!!!

April,

I know how you feel. I started working again after not working for seven years. Boy was I scared. But I made it. Once you get there and get with the flow of it, it becomes easy as pie. I work second shift because I can't get up in the mornings. So that was the ticket for me. I am on a leave of absence right now because of my fibromyalgia and our cold weather. But am going back in spring. Last nigth I was even trying to remember my time clock number and my employee number. I think I have it. So I wrote it down on the calender for when I go back. I will need some refresher courses, but think I should fall back in the groove.

You can do this, I hope that you like your job. Just think positive. Yes going is the hard part, but once you get there, you got it made.

Best wishes to you and congrats on the job!!!

Hugs, Karen
