    Work Stress Overload?  Someone please help.  How do I deal with project deadlines that I can't meet?

    I have been burnt out for months and the stress is getting worse.  I don't know how to handle the situation like a professional.  My workload is exhausting and they won't hire anyone else.

    You need to talk to your boss and explain the situation. Highlight the fact that it is making you ill and you'd rather find a solution to managing the workload than become too unwell to work. Also being assertive and saying "no" or saying that the deadline will need to be later than what they've asked for can help you.
