Fear of Failure

Trying to function professionally, while simultaneously living with invisible forms of chronic illness, is the perfect prescription for a fear of failure.

I’ll soon be starting to provide psychological services at a new nursing home facility. Of course, I want to make a good impression there.

I know that I have the necessary credentials, plus extensive experience, required for optimal performance.

Nevertheless, I’ve been experiencing increased fatigue recently. No degree of motivation negates this persistent limitation.

I have not disclosed my health issues to any of this facility’s personnel. I still look much healthier than I really am, too.

This situation really creates a lot of stress for me. Of course, increased stress only exacerbates the severity of my MS symptoms.
