“The meeting I was so stressed about ended up being regarding a co-worker who is quitting in September. She's the head of my department, so now I'm so worried thinking about the massive workload I'm going to have going into August and September. I'm doing my supervisor's job for the summer, AND now I will be helping to do her boss' job too? I am feeling so sick at the thought of how much extra work I'm going to have to put in around that time. Transitions never go smoothly here.”
