Stressing out big time!

 My friend at work is pregnant and I am taking over her job while she's out on maternity leave. I am terrified that her job is going to be way too hard and I won't be able to do it. We've barely started training, so hopefully one we get into it that won't be the case, but I have been having such terrible anxiety about it. We have until May 17th to figure it out so wish me luck!

Good luck.  Have faith in yourself.  It will probably end up being easier than you think.  Just think, you may end up getting more experience and enjoy having another skill to add to your resume.

You can do it- it'll be a lot at first, but you're bright and you'll learn new skills and become a more valuable employee-- this could be great for your career!

Something makes me think you'll be ok.  I'm sure people at work will be understanding that this is new for you.  It could be a real chance to shine. Yeah & getting in enough run through chances at the more critical things she does will be helpful. I used to stress out when the payroll gal would go on vacation & I'd have to that.   Not sure how comfortable you'd feel with calling her, but she might actually appreciate a phone call with a question or two when she's at home dealing with a new baby, and she could use a confidence boost.

You'll be okay! Just try to relax and do what you can and ask for help when you need it! Good luck :)
