Default Worried about CS

Hello everyone. I am an IMG and new to this forum and I noticed that this is a highly discussed topic but please help me out. I gave my exam in Atlanta center and I am worried about a lot of stuff.

mistakes I made:
Fumbled in 2 patients
Could not complete the closure (give dd and diagnosis) in one of the above patients
Did some mistakes in the patient notes
Could not give that much empathy as I should have in one of the patients

Things that I did:
Knocked, called patient by their surname, introduced myself and my position, shook hands, asked about patients comfort
Paraphrased
Asked patient if they had any questions or concerns
Explained all the physical examination I did
Gave at least 2 dd's and work up to all patients except one

Would really appreciate if someone helps me. I am really worried..

Well, it is normal to do some mistakes considering the short time we have to put everything together...What you describe doesn't seems so terrible, and as I read they are gonna judge your overall performance. But nobody here can tell you for sure that it is ok, unfortunately, because first nobody knows exactly how they grade it, and second we didn't saw/read your performance. So try to think about something else, read all the books you have in late, or whatever you can think to help the time fly until your results. Wishing you a Pass!

You are right @ramennoodles. With each passing day I can only remember more and more mistakes that I made. But yes it's better to keep oneself distracted and hope for the best. Thank you for your reply. Really appreciate it.
