That's probably what's stressing me out. Based on past (and very real) experience, some people have no problem leaving me hanging for however long it suits them, but the instant they decide something needs to be done, then they feel I should be making it a priority. Hey, I've "had this long to prepare for it", apparently.

Some people need to learn to say no. I fully admit I'm one of them.
