Default lost my confidence.....

Hi. I am new to this site and need some help/advice. I have lost my confidence and am feeling very intimidated. I have been a nurse for 10 years. I was a travel nurse for 3 years and traveled all over the US. i was working on a 37 bed medical/nephrology unit where i was the charge nurse for 4 years. In september 2011 i started working in the ICU. I love my job and i love the acuity of the patients and the critical nature, but i have been so intimidated by the ICU doctors. I feel such a lack of confidence in myself and i am so nervous/anxious/scared when i have to deal with the doctors. i was very used to dealing with dr's when i was a charge nurse, and when a critical situation arises, i handle it just fine, so far... i dont know why i am so intimidated and i really need to get my confidence back. i am feeling inadaquate as a nurse right now. wondering if anyone else has delt with this or can offer advice to help me please??? thank you so much.
