Hi all hope all is well in our world.  I'm finally going back to work after 2 years of not working and I am scared as anything.  I keep making up excuses of why I cant start.  I have to go out and buy new clothes and can;t find anything that fits right or looks right on me.  My migraines are starting up again and I'm getting really down, so maybe this job thing was not meant to be.  Maybe I should just give up.......I am trying really hard to think positive and be excited about this but my stupid mind keeps putting all this negative crap in it....I Hate That!!!
I'll take all tlhe postive words anyone has.......
Have a good night

You are definitely stressing more than you need to. That's exacerbating your fears. Remember a job is not a life sentence, and you have the power to try it and choose to continue with it or not. Try it for a month. If it's too much, quit. It's important you know your limits, for sure, but it's also good to remember you can do more than you may think you can.

Good luck!

NEW = SCARY. Cant get aound that little bug-a-boo. At 42 i have to force myself to go try and do new things. And yes, after ive done them i allways feel so much better. Even if the food wasnt that good, i get a little high over just gettign over my fear of new.

about a year ago i took a new parttime job at sears doing loss prevention. Basicly catching shoplifters. Well my first month there i HATED it. I was and still am a non comfrontational person, looking instead for ways to calmly solve my problems. Being a person who goes up to complete strangers, young, old, black, white, male, female and arresting them was so completely alien to me. It felt wrong wrong wrong. My wife said to quit several times but our need of money kept me there.

And guess what, i discovered that i was not only really good at the job, but that the job suited me perfectly. I became a little more assertive, and i became one of the top people in sears at catching bad guys. My boss told me that in sears i was top 15 of the part time loss prevention dectivitives.

So yes it can be scary, very veyr scary. But there are rewards there also. THink about it this way. If you dont go to this job you have 0% chance of finding a happy place where your work will be valued. If you go, give it a chance, and end up not liking it, you still have won because you tried.

Good luck Bill
