Thank you. I really appreciate the kind responses. I am struggling with this anxiety, and it's really helpful to hear from others who are having, or have had, this struggle too. I surprised myself by not feeling too bad for the rest of this week (which feels like it's been going on for about a year!). I thought I would beat myself up over this job thing, but actually I see where I was coming from in withdrawing. It wasn't just a freak out, it was partly because the job had some problems too. I mean, it WAS a freakout, but some of the freak out was justified. Anyway, thanks so much forum commenters, your replies meant a lot to me.
