From wikipedia:

Impostor syndrome (also known as impostor phenomenon or fraud syndrome) is a term coined in 1978 by clinical psychologists Dr. Pauline R. Clance and Suzanne A. Imes referring to high-achieving individuals marked by an inability to internalize their accomplishments and a persistent fear of being exposed as a "fraud".[1] Despite external evidence of their competence, those exhibiting the syndrome remain convinced that they are frauds and do not deserve the success they have achieved. Proof of success is dismissed as luck, timing, or as a result of deceiving others into thinking they are more intelligent and competent than they believe themselves to be. Some studies suggest that impostor syndrome is particularly common among high-achieving women.[2]

Didn't think that would be a problem I'd ever have but heh... I suppose there are worse ones out there.

Thanks. It does give me a lot of anxiety though, and my depression does not help to maintain a job.

I always end up either resigning or being fired for being late to work or not showing up on the days I can't function. I just end up losing jobs either way. I've had jobs that lasted only a few days and the longest was about a year, but that was a long time ago lol.

Ha well thats good I guess. I have only had 2 real retail jobs, way back in 07 worked there for a 1 week quit, and then the other in 2011 worked there maybe 1-2 months and quit lol. Other work has been freelancing writing and stuff, no other retail work because I apply, and they never hit me back, why due to the lack of experience and stuff haha.

yeah, I'm terrified. I'm in my early 20s and have no work experience whatsoever. Due to my anxiety and depression, I can barely handle going to school on a part-time basis... I have 4 classes a week and I feel like I'm going to die. I can't imagine being able to survive a 9 - 5. I doubt I could successfully get through a job interview anyway.

Oh man that sucks. I am sorry to hear that. Glad I am not the only one, having a hard time dealing with these types of things.

Perhaps online classes would help you, since you have a hard time with your depression and anxiety.
