Hi Deb,

I'm sorry to have to tell you but I was very thrilled to have the position.
Remember, however, that everyone is different, as are situations. Your
tolerance for stress may be higher than mine. You also have to factor in
how much control you have in your situation (I have much more now that I
began to state my position and fight for what I want)- more control=less
stress. And your private life is also a factor. In the worst possible
scenario, I believe a case of burn-out is much more possible if all of these
areas are working against you. It would definitely be time to practice some
feng shui!
The best advice is to keep your life in balance at work and at home.
And, don't worry too much, just enjoy what you are doing!

Andrea in Pa.
