So I just started a new job and it's not difficult or anything but it does require interaction with customers and I've never been comfortable in social situations Even though no customers have been remotely rude to me, and have been very understanding about how new I am to the job, my anxiety about social interactions even makes pleasant social interactions very draining. And I know a lot of people have been in situations where they're starting a new customer service jobs I'm curious about any tricks you guys use to help control your anxiety and make your work experience easier.
Hi everyone, my name is Karen and I just joined this site, this is my first post. Back in 2009 I was put on Prozac for moderate depression and I also had awful social anxiety. I was just put back on a low dose of Prozac for anxiety..I feel like it's helping a little but, but not enough. Anyway, I just got a new job. Tomorrow is day 4 at Old Navy. My second day, I ended up having a panic attack because I was thrown on register (I've always been terrified of registers) and had a very complicated transaction. I ended up sitting in the back for a half hour until my shift was over, hyperventilating and crying. A lot of the staff was very nice and helpful during this time. I was told that they had been having second thoughts about letting the woman who trained me, train new hires. So I'm freaking out about her hating me now, and also freaking out about working register tomorrow and the next two weeks. Yesterday was an ok day, but I don't think I'll have anyone helping me tomorrow like I did yesterday. There's always something new that I don't know how to handle and I feel bad always asking for help. I've screwed up a few times, nothing too major but I'm so afraid of screwing up. I wonder if I'll ever learn how to do everything. It's so much more complicated than I thought. When I don't know how to do something I start getting extremely sweaty and nervous and I feel like it shows. Sometimes I don't know if I can do this. I swear, most of the time I feel like I'm not catching on quick enough because I'm just stupid. I just got this job, I need it, but I'm so scared.
