Well. I'm still processing the event.
Yesterday, at 16:30 i had a job interview. Today, at the morning (not even 10:30 am). The interviewer called. They are interested in me and i'll start at august 1st.
Somehow, i did it well. I don't know. I went, i tried to be interested in the job, and magically, less than one day later. i'm in. :I:I:I

It's a good new, of course.
But my anxiety and my irrational catastrophic thoughts are continuously hanging around. Well. Let's see how it goes. 3 years later, (sarcasm mode ON) At last i'll be a productive and respectable member of this society.

Congratz, hopefully it all works out.👍

I took a wiz quiz today for a potential job that I applied for all the way back in mid June. Did the interview a couple weeks ago and have been filling out all kinds of paperwork since I got the preliminary offer. If I pass this final hurdle I will also be back in the world of employment. Definitely a damned if you do, damned if you don't situation as mentioned earlier, but it will be nice to actually be able to pay bills for a change.

Congrats! The anxiety piece is tough. Hopefully it’s a good environment with solid people and it settles things for you. I’ve found the people you’re working with tend to be more important than what you do in terms of how tolerable a job is.

Well. Tomorrow is the great day. Not gonna lie, it feels like a lamb going to slaughter. Thanks, anxiety, pessimism and catastrophic thoughts.
I don't have any proof that the job will be a living hell... neither a easy task. Anyway. I'll go and i'll do what i can.

and if my life becomes a living hell, sad to say but CTB is still a possibility. Even the job could provide a alibi of several hours. The initial months is a "test contract" and either party may end it without reason. If this goes in the worst way and is my breakdown, i would have 8-10 hours before anyone starts to worry. It's calming to have a plan b if the world's crumbles.

One day at a time. I started a job a month ago and shook like a leaf from anxiety and self doubt throughout the whole two week training. I'm 4 weeks in now and it gets easier as you learn and try.

I wish you much strength through your anxiety and a great first day. Go and do what you can is a great attitude to approach it.
