I feel like an impostor and have constant panic attacks.

I worked as a maid, janitor then executive assisant from 2016-2020 making 13 to 52k in 4 years. I eventually quit and spent that time watching free online design courses, put together a portfolio and landed a Sr. Designer role. I got promoted to Lead Designer (2 years later; 190K) and have frequent panic attacks about being "found out". I now lead and manage people when I feel like an absolute fake.
