    So almost every day before my shift starts, I get anxious and I get butterflies in my stomach. But when I get to work and start working it kind of goes away.

    I don't know if the fact that I have mild Aspergers might have anything to do with it.

    Is there any other stress in your life, like financial or anything?

    I've worked with several students with Aspergers...When our students started a new routine, like taking some college classes off campus, we taught them coping skills they could use when anxiety struck. You may want to look into using some.
    There's also several rj members with Aspergers.Make a thread asking for a on line a forum to communicate with these members..Good luck.

    Here’s a quick process I use when I start to feel anxiety, depression or any other modern ailment. I ask myself how my grandfather would have dealt with it and then I go about my life, because my grandfather was hardly educated, did not have a life plan, married young, but never was sick for long, never complained about anxiety or anything, worked hard, made a ton of money, lived a life of creativity filled with boundless ambition and love and raised a family with those traits. No one in my family has any newly diagonosed silly temperate illnesses (sadness, anxiety, depression-all built around big pharmaceutical having a cure). Grandpas advice when I graduated was “just don’t be a pussy” which is how I often view the willfully incapable and people who seem self diagnosed sick in some way.
