I always have stress migraines the first day of a new job. Do all the things you know have relaxed you in the past. I usually find that I fit into the routine very quickly and the stress eases up as I concentrate on the job itself. emoticon

Yes - these responses triggered another thought - in situations like yours where some anxiety is normal, even healthy, I'm learning to not freak out about being anxious. That just makes things worse. I comment on myself - "sheesh, I'm a basket case!" and then try to go on with my day, not giving too much attention to my anxiety. It exists, I acknowledge it, name it, see that it's appropriate for the situation if it's not all-consuming, and move on, living with it until circumstances change. I recognize its presence but don't feed it. I don't know your situation at all, but I hope you can find a way to let yourself be anxious, excited, even a little depressed, until you see what this new, unknown job is really like. You are a sensitive human being - that's a gift! Your feelings can be very healthy!

Depression is the impression left by fear. Be willing to fight the fear. Conquer it with love.

Breathe! Congratulations on the new job! Getting one these days is a blessing. Your feelings are normal and familiar to me - and others on this team, I bet! In this next day, try to just breathe and give thanks for having a job, or a place to sleep, or food, or wherever your heart leads - I'm saying a prayer for you and I wish you well!

Feeling stressed. I start a new job next week and I'm feeling anxious already. I think I'm suffering with a bit of depression too. I'm not sure what to do!
