Afraid I will fail
I have just got a new job - a great one, but I am so afraid I won't meet expectations. I don't know what is wrong with me. I used to be a smart, confident woman. Lately I feel so insecure,stupid. I seem to be forgetful, and quite disorganized. I used to be on top of things. These days, I feel disorganized & out of control. Can't even get up early anymore. I always seem to be late & forgetting things. What is happening to me.

Fear of Failure keeps many able people from exploring their limits and succeeding. YOu say this is a distinct change in your usual attitude --- so what else has changed during this time ? It might be a good idea to see a good local shrink for a general assessment, to help to clarify what might be going on
