How can you say you have nothing ? You have intelligence, persistence, integrity, pride, and so much more ! OK, you FEEL like you have nothing. According to which criteria, and where did those come from ? yes indeed, you are too hard on yourself. You seem to fel far too responsible for how other people feel, maybe even for whatever they do and think. They are their own business.
With your excellent sense of humour, if those fears start up while awaiting an interview, just imagine the interviewers all in a tizz, having discovered in their Secret Service Report that you used to pull hair out as a child, and they panic about whether it is safe for the nation to give this job to someone who is an ex-hair-puller. They, of course have no such problem, as they actually hire people to pull their hair out for them. Extend the fear until its ridiculousness becomes obvious to you. Imagine that all the interviewers actually pulled out all their own hair, and are wearing wigs. None of your awful secrets are awful or relevant to any job you might apply for. Remind yourself of your many points of excellence, and how well suited you could be to this job, and then calmly and pleasantly convince them of that.
In these economic times its no easy to get a job, however good you may be at it, especially when you have been away abroad.
