Default Stress getting the best of me...

So I applied for a new job, well... promotion more or less... and I got the call yesterday. They wanted to interview immediately. So I went yesterday evening after work and interviewed. I truely feel that the interview went Great! Maybe I'm just overly excited and saw things that didn't happen but I feel great!
The rule with my company is they call you and let you know one way or another if you get the job!! He told me that he would call either today or tommorrow once he decided.

So needless to say NERVES and Stress are wearing me Down!
I prayed all day that they would call today and let me know one way or another and Nothing. So I'm incapable of working under stress. Therefore, no workouts or anything I'm just so bummed and worried it's going to be a no

This job would mean a big move for me and things that I've been working so hard for. I guess that's where the stress is from. I want to live there and I want to work in that town!
I guess I need reassurance and stress help! lol

and to vent of course!
Thanks for reading!

I get totally anxious in those situations too! I hope you hear something soon! Try to find something to keep you occupied - organizing, watching a movie, reading, hanging w/ a friend - to keep your mind off things. (That usually helps me stay from food on those situations too!)

I'm the same way you are too. I think a lot of people who want a certain position and have to wait for an answer probably get stressed. I agree with kariatari...find something to keep yourself occupied. And vent all you want...that's what we are here for!

It's very hard to do anything productive with something preying on your mind. Hope you get good news soon!

Sometimes when I get stressed I grab one of the kids coloring books and crayons and go at it... it's really relieving for some reason.

Good luck mhill Sending positive vibes your way :

I'm in a similar boat. I'm unemployed and looking for work. I interviewed last Friday and she said I'd hear from them "at the end of next week." I believe the interview went very well. I sent a thank you email and a hand written thank you note. Still haven't heard anything. I literally take my cell phone with me to the bathroom.

I've kind of expected that I wouldn't hear back until sometime next week but it's nerve racking. I'm so broke it is ridiculous.

Hang in there! Stay positive and find something to channel your nervous energy into. I like the coloring book idea! I also find that a good kick boxing/martial arts class at the gym does wonders for my stress level!

Sending tons of positive energy your way!

Keep us posted if you hear anything!

Thanks so much ladies! I was under the impression I would know by this evening but it turns out that the manager is out of the office until Monday!

Soooo a long, hopefully busy, weekend ahead for me!
I'm off Monday, so I plan to keep my cell phone permanently attached to me!

All these kind words and positive vibes make me smile...

and curlysue82 that is wonderful idea! I absolutely love puzzles!!! I'm going to find one in the morning!
Thank you!
