Second day on a new job today; had intense amounts of anxiety just putting produce away in a grocery store. So I decided for the first time to join a forum like this one.

:welcome: to the forum. You are an essential worker then and very important job right now. Be proud of yourself. New jobs always cause intense anxiety in all of us but you must feel more so right now. Is there anything we can support you with anxiety wise?

Nice to meet you! I can understand why you'd be on edge. I hope you have a good support system that can help you get through this.

And good luck with your new job!

Thanks for the encouragement guys. I work at an organic health food store with very understanding people. Here the scene: I'm in front of a produce display case with a cart of produce. Just gotta rotate and quality control. Feels like a bear is right behind me the entire time. I feel socially awkward as hell. Bah. And when I get home it takes my damn amygdala 2 hours to chill out!

I appreciate the warm welcome. I took an off-brand valium before bed and slept straight through the night. Haven't slept from 11 am to 6:05 before a work day since I started in November! Nevertheless... I woke up feeling hopeless, the world felt gray, I wanted the world to stop spinning, I wanted to call out if work... completely apathetic... Considered death. I took another valium before work. Then I made a more in-depth post this morning about the way I was feeling. Turned out to be the best day I've ever had at work since November. Difference? Off-brand Valium.
