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!
