I think that I might be alone on this one, so I'm putting my neck on the line a little.
I still clearly remember my first day in this job, my first call, and the bag of nerves that I was as I sat on station waiting for the phone to ring.
BUT... Am I the only person who still gets a kind of "First Day Nerves" when going back to work after a relatively short time off?
I was back this week for a normal set of shifts after having worked only one shift in practically two weeks, and was a little nervous. I kept urging the phone or the MDT to ring and send me on a call, just to get the first one out the way, and reassure me that I hadn't forgotten everything I know.
Once I've done that first call, it's like I've never been away, but it is a little weird that still, several years down the line, I go through that anxiety every single time I come back to work after even a short stint away...
So go on. Tell me.
Am I completely mad? (Anyone who knows me will instantly say "YES" to that one, so behave yourselves!)
Am I the only one who gets nervous coming back to work after only a few days off?
Am I really the only one who gets anxious about coming back to work, in case I've forgotten everything I ever knew?
Answers, as ever, either on a postcard or, if you so wish, in the comments!
