Fighting Depression #30 – Hey, I started my new job…

So, as anyone following knows, the biggest thing that’s defined this year is my being fired from the non-profit no-kill animal shelter that I bled, sweated and shed tears over for the past twelve-plus years.  (I won’t go into the long, detailed story again, but for those who are newer and/or don’t know the story of me and the shelter, I wrote about it in detail two months ago.)

I started a new job today.  It’s “temp-to-hire”, but I’m hoping that I’m able to prove myself and turn it into a permanent hire position before long.

Today was orientation, so that meant a morning meeting with HR and several other new hires, and then most of the rest of the day taking tests on the computer.  The last couple hours, I sat in on the beginning of the shift meeting for the department/team I’ll be starting with, and was walked around and given the grand tour and explained many policies and introduced to a bunch of people by my team leader, Linda.

Tomorrow, I begin actually being part of the crew/team/department (not sure their term for it – team, I’m thinking, but I’m uncertain.)  Excited, a bit anxious.  There’s a lot for me to learn; it’s manufacturing, and while I have had a job in that field before, it wasn’t this particular type of manufacturing.

And, of course, depression/anxiety is having me second guess everything and beat myself up… yay.  But, I’m doing my best to ignore that, battle those thoughts with positive ones.

So, onward and upward, right?

(As always, thank you for reading.)
