I started a new job,Yeah !! But I have'nt worked since this last April. I really feel like a fish out of water and then some. Monday will be day 3 and I guess I expected myself to be able to jump right in and start doing it ! I feel so intimidated by the fact that I need to learn their systems,their phone extensions,how not to get lost in the building and etc,etc... Has anyone else felt so inept at areas you used to be very proficient ? I just want to crawl under a large rock... Please help...

Entirely normal feelings for everyone...recoverying people or not.
Put one foot in front of the other and stay focused on one moment at a time. If you have to excuse yourself to the bathroom to say the Serenity Prayer, so be it.
Best of luck to you and congrats on going back to work.
