I'm getting ready to start a new adventure! But I've been comfortable so long I don't know how to handle it.

I'm going to grad school and I'm really excited. But there is so much to do that is pushing me outside my boundaries. I have asperger's, so I don't transition well and it is hard for me to move past my box. But I need to contact landlords and roommates about finding apartments, and I need to get a blood test even though I am extremely scared of blood draws, , and I need to apply for obamacare, and I need to decide on how much to take out in loans, and etc, etc.
I know what I need to do to, I know all the steps but I feel anxious so much, on top of working a full-time job (and a 30 hour a week job for some of the summer). It is so much to do, and I'm doing it independantly for the first time in my life (I have my parents but I think I need to figure this out for myself if I'm going to live independantly).
I just feel the anxiety in the background of everything I do. How do you handle a major life change when you have 10 billion things to handle first? It almost seems impossible to get it all done by August even with all my obsessive lists and calendar reminders.
