I haven't logged on here for a while but today has been one of those tough days when you feel like you have to connect with "your kind". Although I've been really anxious today and on the brink of a panic attack, I thought it would be helpful to report some progress in the midst of it all. When I first joined this forum last year (almost a year ago), I joined mainly because I was dealing with feelings of failure and depression after having quit two great jobs on the first week due to my anxiety. I knew I had to try looking for a job again soon and needed some help so that I wouldn't take off running again. Last Monday I completed my 3 month probation in a new job that is just as good, if not better, than the other ones I failed to stay in for more than week. I do feel nervous and anxious every day, as I mentioned, and I've even lost weight just from the stress, but I'm still in it. For me, that's progress. I've been taking things a day, week, and meeting at time in order to get through it. I've kept telling myself that as long as I do my best, regardless of what happens, I'll have no regrets. I've been trying to read positive and encouraging things as well. So I thought I'd share this progress with all of you.
