Started my new job today...I was worried that it would be a struggle of a day, but I found myself immediately enjoying myself, and even went more than an hour without thinking about my anxiety. For the majority of the day I was positive and the anxious thoughts were few and less invasive. After lunch, around 3:30, I realized that I hadn't thought of my anxiety in a while, and suddenly I got scared that if I started thinking about the anxiety I wouldn't be able to stop...and for a short while, I had some increased anxiety...but I remained positive, and eventually I was able to focus on work again. On the drive home I had other thoughts naturally, and was able to remained relaxed and surpress any thoughts about anxiety.
