Do you think I can make it


#1

It’s now very soon before I move alone to a new country and start a full time job in a very large organization, I am excited but the fear of failure is filling my heart, could I make it, can it be the following scz success can I manage my stress and anxiety, doubts and irrational thoughts, can I behave normally with 3500$ a month plus plus, can I and can I. Lol, can I train people on subjects I already know, can I submit reports and do analysis, can I manage expenses and do purchasing… Theoretically yes I can, I can do most of the job requirements theoretically but I haven’t done that since before my onset. I am already having more speech poverty I don’t know if it’s because of the anxiety or because I’m feeling good and finally satisfied with how life is treating me finally. I just need a therapist I know, my doc says no but I’m sure it would help. I wish ill do fine and succeed in maintaining a position for at least one year.

I wish you good luck, you’re taking on a lot. I One of the first things I would do in your new city is immediately look for a psychiatrist/and or a therapist. I would get familiar with the help that is around you. Just kind of check out where the nearest clinic or hospital is. No big deal, but just in case.
I hope you succeed, I could never do a job like that in a million years. It’s normal to be a little nervous and scared. You must know a lot of stuff to take on a job like that. Tomorrow is my day to clean restrooms at my job. My job is a little different than yours will be. Lol.
I enjoy my moments of clarity and peace, when the symptoms subside but I don’t think I’m “cured” by a long shot. Peace and quiet is deceptive and whenever I think I have all the answers my disease rears its ugly head. If you think you can do this job, then more power to you. I find a lot of things I do start with the thought, “Yeah, I think I can do this”. The money sounds good. I sometimes surprise myself at what I’m capable of. Maybe you have a good shot at this.

I remember fearing failure when I went of to college. It took me 5 years but I got my B.A. I did get pdoc help part of the time.
Just to say, hey, if I could do it, so can you.
