Just take it one call at the time and do not think everything can get fixed or has to be fixed.I used to try to break my balls fixing things. Some days are good other days not so good.

Glad to help.   I had the same situation,  worked for about same amount of time,  then BOOM!  no job.   You can do it,  like JW says,   just take one call at a time.   Don't try to fix things you don't know about,  was one of my early mistakes.    I took jobs i wasn't familiar with,  and got burn't a few times.   It will happen,  don't let it get you down.    Have confidance.    Let us know if we can help you.    Hardest part is marketing to get customers.   But you can do it.   Be the best thing that ever happened to you, you just don't kow it yet.
