Do I even know what I'm doing??

I recently (about 4 months ago) took on a role as the only PM in my company.  I came from a small agency where my role was pretty well defined, and in this new job, I was able to "make my own job description".  That sounded really good at the time but now I have no structure and no process, but I'm still expected to be managing projects for people who don't even know what a PM *does*, let alone what I need to be able to do my job.  It's gotten to the point where I don't even know if I'm a good PM anymore, or maybe I never was.

Oh man.  Come sit down.
