> Take a job that you are not qualified for, mix that with a pt. that is 3 months old, and add respiratory problems, and then do this job alone in someone's home. I am petrified and now I have to go take a tranquilizer because it is too late to back out. I sure wouldn't trust my judgement. Would you? OMG terrics

Are you really not qualified? Is there any way you can see the job as a means to getting qualified (i.e. getting the expereince) to do it? If you were hired, I assume you were able to persuade your employer that you could do it. You didn't lie on your resume?

If you didn't lie on your resume and your employer has confidence in you to do the job, then perhaps you need to find a way to believe you really are able to do it.

And perhaps it's a steep learning curve, but with a little experience and perhaps some reading (I don't know what the job invovles; is there anything you can read about best practice?) I'm sure you can do it.

Take it one hour at a time, and remember to breathe!

Oh, and one thing I think is always useful: if you're struggling, talk to your employer. Most employers want to help employees as much as possible.
