I have a phone interview at 11:30 EST this morning, and I am extremely nervous, yet excited. I haven't worked in 3 years because of the severity of my mental health, but I spent that time getting help and trying to stabalize myself as much as I could. No matter the help I got of course there's still that lingering anxiety that I have to deal with. Times have been tough and I really need the money so I'm trying to push myself. It's a work from home job and has to do with my passion. I have quite a bit of social phobia so I figured this could at least get me working in my comfort until I'm truly ready to get out there. At the same time I feel like it can make it worse and I may get too comfortable not having to face people physically. What a battle. I wrote down a bunch of notes this morning on the job and about myself to ease my way through any interview questions. And I'm hoping things go well. I almost always get the job that's never the problem really, however I always ruin the opportunity and either no show or convince myself out of it. I know this post is kind of everywhere, but I really needed to get it out my head right here.

      Try not to worry too much, most people are too focused on themselves to be worried about you just remember that n everything will go good! Best of luck xx

      Good! Luck! YOU'LL DO GREAT. Just breathe. Maybe drink some tea to calm your nerves. This is very exciting! Can't wait to see how it goes.

        @MikeyO @lilkitten Thank you! I feel like I completely fumbled my words, but still proud I went through with it 🥰

          @Jmarie soooo.....how did it go? Who cares if you fumbled your words. As long as you were yourself that's all that matters. I use to have to interview people and the very first thing I would say to them is don't be nervous because I'm nervous and we both can't be nervous at the same time, that's just statistically impossible. It usually put them at ease.
