Good luck with it, I'm sure it's not too unusual to feel that way, I have, does make it hard though. Hopefully they will take it slowly so you can be given something you can handle, and given support.

Dear Lovagemuffin, I get like that, too--very anxious anticipating things. I tend to avoid people and I admire you for taking on a volunteer job! Take it easy on yourself and I think you may surprise yourself how well you do. Wishing you the best of luck!
