Thanks Hunker - I need a hug so I'm going to get one from dh now. The thing is, he just says tell them I can't do it and he tells me I take on too much - he's right but you just can't turn work down when you work for yourself can you? And certainly not when you are still paying for 2 houses!!!
Helsi, I 'analyse' data for pharmaceutical market research - my clients run big international studies for big pharma co's and I pull together the data, listen to taped interviews with doctors/specialists etc, so that it's summarised and makes sense to my client so they can present it back to theirs! Probably makes no sense at all!
I'm panicking because one of my studies is an oncology one and it looks really complicated!
I also work from home for myself (as well as being a SAHM) and I have a stupid amount to do at the moment. I feel really bad saying no, especially to regular clients, so end up saying yes and then having a big panic.
I'm having a big panic right now, as I have a deadline tomorrow! It's going to be a long night.
I've got THE most unrealistic, otrageous amount of work to do too, even my boss said, 'oh dear, well if I can help then just ket me know'! He';s as much use as a chocolate teapot. I asked him to do something for me a week and a half ago and he keeps saying 'oh sorry, I'll do it today' and just never does, he's alwayts done that! I'm trying not tpo panic by saying to myself and everyone else, I can only do what I can do.
