This is not a situation I have ever been in before. I've normally had a choice of job offers. I am really freaking out.

Iím sorry you are having a tough time. Good luck and best wishes for finding a job quickly.

I am so sorry you are going through such a tough time. I was in this boat for a few months. I had rent pending and needed a paycheck asap so I could pay it on time.

One thing I learned through my job search was that the more jobs you apply for the better your chances are. The job market is very hard nowadays. There was a week where I set a limit to myself - minimum 50 applications a day. It took me a few hours each day but really helped me confidence - because the more I did the more likely I would be to get a response.
After that week, while I was submitting my 50 for the next day, I got a hit from the job that is now my current place.

Just relax. Things will be okay.

Quiet day today. Nervous but feeling a little more hopeful.

I only have 4h left to sleep but I can't stop stressing about tomorrow night. I wish I could just cancel all my plans and run away and hide from the world until like the 2nd week of January.
This time of the year is extremely difficult and it's triggering so many memories that I'm not being able to cope with

Was starting to feel better then a bunch of little annoyances happened. Glasses broke, hard drive crashed (lucky it was part of a RAID so I didn't lose anything), spilled coffee all over my sweater...the list goes on. Plus my sleep was disrupted and had strange dreams.

Despite all this I'm okay. I'm grateful we had money to replace the drive, and my husband used a nose piece from an old pair of glasses.

Happy New Year to those that celebrate it.

Iím up past 4 a.m. I just donít want to go to bed, because I donít want to face the morning. My typical morning anxiety seems like it might be worse, being the last day off before I go back to work and having to face the new year as well. January is the worst month, with quarter-end work plus year-end work.

I did fairly well the past few days while out of the house on my stay-cation. I had my phone with me, so I guess I had my main distraction that I used intermittently. I had trouble with the long drives, so I just resorted to daydreaming to distract myself from anxious thoughts. I nearly missed an exit. I wish I could just be comfortable enough to be present.

Frankly, I could have had a real vacation, but I just didnít feel up to it. Sadly, Iím glad we didnít go anywhere because I just want to be home.

Had a panic attack after finding out the cause of my recent severe anxiety. Will this never end?
