Juggling Blind

It's oh so descriptive of this project and my role in it!

This is tough for someone who's used to having her head (and heart) completely wrapped around projects. The biggest danger is that I'm supposed to know far more about internal process and procedure than I could ever learn in a few days, and I don't know what it is that I don't know.

I could be dropping balls all over the place and not even know it -- until things blow up in all our faces.

To have a freelancer in such a critical role is, I think, a really poor decision on the part of management. To put in these hours on an insane project like this, one really should be emotionally invested and deeply involved.

I think it's just about impossible for any freelancer to effectively and convincingly juggle a bunch of identical glass balls flying through the air at warp speed.

One (or more?!) is bound to drop...

I give you a heck of a lot of credit for what you're doing. I'm generally very attached to my comfort zones - I'm not sure I can put myself into your current situation. Major kudos to you!

I agree with Valerie - there is no way on earth I could work in a situation like that. The one time I was in a similar spot I ended up with dangerously high blood pressure and my doctor suggested I quit. Which I promptly did.
