Are the symptoms lacking self-confidence and low self-esteem different symptoms, similar symptoms, or two sides of the same coin? I had a medical condition for 25 years that did not stop me from doing the hardest dirtiest jobs, drinking, even became the best linoleum and tile installer. In 1998 that all changed when my medical condition traumatically worsened. It kinda wiped out my confidence in doing complicated tough jobs. I occasionally did neat little projects that reminded me of what I once was. I lost most of last year and this first month of 08 due to accidents and illness. I have hired a very good handyman to help fix up my fixer upper condo I bought in 06. I finally am well enough to start some projects myself. The porch light was all but denigrated. It looked like there were just little pieces of rust hanging in the air: just an illusion of a light. I went to Home Depot, bought an inexpensive but nice looking & functional motion sensor porch light. I just finished taking down that rusted old one and installed the new one. I turned the switch on and whalah it lit up. I was like a little kid like looky, looky, there yippee, yippee My self-esteem was most disabling in the toilet for most of my life. That made it unbearable for people to hang out with me. So, is that the same as lacking confidence? If they are not the same thing or darn similar then that would be like a double whammy thing, hun?

I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
