Work has been crazy crazy busy since the start of the year, but I was hoping it would ease off a bit before I went on leave. I only have 4 weeks of work to go and it hasn't let up (and wont before I go on leave)... it's only gotten worse.
I wouldn't want anything at all bad to happen to this bubby, but I'm getting to the point that I really really hope it comes early just so I can walk out of there ASAP. I know that's selfish, and I really wouldn't want it to come that early (I'm only 30 weeks). My first bubba was 5 weeks early, and that was already too early, so I know logically I wouldn't want that again.... but I am just so over it.
It's not just that it's been busy - but we have a number of major projects (most of which have been last minute) and that I've been put solely in charge of. I feel so unsupported at the moment, and feel like they've just been dumped on me. When I have tried to raise the issue that it's too much or that they probably wont get done before I go on leave, the response has been pretty much "too bad".
I just don't really know how to deal with it. I usually really like my job and the people I work with, which makes it tough.
How do others cope with this sort of stress? I keep telling myself that I'll be out of there soon, but it still feels soooo far away.
