Time to vent

I am feeling kind of overwhelmed right now.

-My father is in surgery and I am stuck at my desk at work. It is minor surgery, but still I am feeling distracted by it

-My wife had an allergic reaction to Blistex (and WTF is that all about anyway) and took herself to the emergency room where she got a steroid shot and was told to take Benadryl.

-My boss just told me that he is adding a second ongoing account to my job duties and that I am now going to have to be available for an extra 2 hours a day 5 days a week. Oh, and the account is for a specialty that I have never worked on before and requires me to learn a whole new software. And my original account is adding 3 doctors over the next 2 months which will be adding an additional 10-15 hours of work per week with them. And I am not getting any bump in pay for this to go along with my $2400 / year deductible POS health "insurance"

The funny thing is, I actually want to go for a walk at lunch and clear my head, but it is raining so I can't even do that (not to mention that I have to stay by my phone so that my mother can call me w/any updates on my father so that I can update the rest of the family.

I keep waiting for the other shoe to drop but it feels like 5 or 6 have already all dropped at once. Am I dealing w/an octopus here?

    Sounds like you have a lot on your plate right now and I don't mean food. :) Just take it one thing at a time. Hope your dad's surgery goes well, I'm sure it will, but waiting is the hardest part. Been there done that! Don't let all this "stuff" get you off track. Work will find a way to work itself out. Of course when more is expected of you there is never more money in it! More time, less money. just do the best you can. Give yourself a learning curve to learn the new program. You can do it!!
