Panic episode

Am I doing the right thing? Being away from the industry so long is definitely hurting my career. But it’s too late to turn back now. At least not without going back home. I’ve been keeping in touch with a lot of my old university classmates, all of whom are still working in the industry and getting places. Sure, I’m getting places… far away from where I wanted to be career wise.

Yes, I’m happy but I’m struggling a little financially. Yes, I’m getting a raise but, will it be enough? I don’t have much more to say about it… because there’s not much logic in my train of thinking just plain panic.
