i did the same thing your doing when i was working. i put in for a job i really wanted and then worried the whole time between putting in for it and getting it. total freaked myself out. like your doing. and it worked out that i got the job i wanted and it was a great move for me. i was nervous with the move and had to learn some new things. but it was totaly worth it in the end. plus bonus was i made more money. and i was better at the new spot then i was in the old one.
i'm sure that it will work out for you the same way. and you'll do great. i could tell you not to worry but those are just words and your gonna do it anyway. once you get the postion you'll settly back down and be great. and in the very off chance that you dont that doesnt mean your stuck were your at it just means that theres something better coming. and you got to be patient.
as far as the getting dizzy or head feels like it gonna explode when you stand up from sitting. you might try moving from positions a little slower. and if it continues might be time for a trip to the doc for a blood pressure check to make sure its ok. but i would just try getting up slower. getting up too fast causes a change in blood pressure and that could be whats causing the feeling. but i'm not a doc. of anything just my advice. remember that.
I think the fear of change and the unknown can throw alot of us, even those without anxiety disorder. Are you thinking the worst about this job change? When I start to feel anxious, I always go straight to 'what have I been thinking', 99% of the time I'm catastrophizing and making myself miserable. This job is going outside of your comfort zone and that's scary. I think that you having some extra anxiety right now is a pretty 'normal' thing, almost to be expected. As for the symptoms you're feeling, I've had all of those at one time or another, and nothing horrible has ever happened...other than being really uncomfortable. You are going to be okay, let the anxiety take it's course, try and relax and keep your mind busy and this too shall pass!
Glad to hear you are doing better. My husband got very anxious with nicotine withdrawal and actually needed to take some Xanax for a short time.
I can picture you doing the jumping jacks at work. It sounds like you are a winner no matter which way the job goes. Liz, please know we care for you and keep on posting.
Good Morning Liz,
2 weeks is a wonderful accomplishment to be smoke free. I know it is tough and some people crave the nicotine more than others. I am rooting for you.
I believe you will get the job. A second interview is always a good sign.
I also feel you are being very proactive re your health care and your sons....................Kudos to you ! Lots of hugs too.
