Well, I've been making steps towards going back to work after being a SAHM for several years.
I used to feel so competent, reliable, efficient, valued and confident.
Now I feel like a burden, unwanted, lacking worth/value in the current environment and under-skilled in terms of technology. I made a small mistake (no one was around to ask at the time - grrr) the other day at work that I followed-up straight away to make sure it was what it was supposed to be (I'd had a brief run-down on the programme due to several employees being away on leave and them needing someone to fill a void). I HATE making mistakes, even though DH says that I'll probably make some more as I go through learning new things this year. I guess I am concerned that others will think that I am unreliable.
How did you feel when you first started going back to work?
