I’m feeling very nervous about being at work this morning. Last Friday my boss of 10 years left and I now have a new boss. I don’t do change very easily, maybe because of my mental illness. I am so full of anxiety this morning I could throw up.
I have met my new boss as we have had a handover period, he seems very nice but I know things are going to be very different. Getting to know a new personality and having to work closely together, learning new tasks and different processes etc.
I know I can do the job so I have no idea why I feel so bad. You know when you are so comfortable in your job it’s like a pair of comfy slippers; you know how to do things without even having to really think about it. Don’t get me wrong I’m up for the challenge I am just feeling very very nervous!
Just writing this down is quite cathartic, it’s making me think about how I am feeling and is making me take a step back from my anxiety and do some breathing exercises so it was worth writing this. I have helped myself!
The boss is due in shortly, so let’s just see how we go, I am sure that we can make it work, I’m telling myself that change can sometimes be good!
