How to cope with a major life change?

As someone with Asperger's Syndrome (and a few anxiety disorders), I find change, especially sudden change, difficult to cope with, but I could have a chance at a fantastic job if I am able to move across country in the next week.

A little background on the situation…
I'm 22 years old and I live at home with my mother in our house. Never before have I lived on my own or had a full-time, stable job. In the next week I could have the chance at taking a job with a company that will pay really well ($70, 000 the first year), but I am terrified of the abrupt changes in my life!
Will I manage independently well? What if I can't find somewhere to live? What if the job doesn't work out for me?
What I want to know is how can I relax and not feel so stressed about it all? I want to be able to make this money and work at this company, but I am afraid of these changes, which sounds pathetic, I know, but it is true!
How do I cope with all this anxiety?
