dakkarant918178dwell your boss seems fair?
Just say, hey i can't do this, i need help or this is gonna turn into a burnout/severe loss of productivity.
If that doesnt work, give him an ultimatum, either he provides you with what you need to do your job / put someone else on it, or you find another employer.
The company exists by the grace of its workers, not the other way around.
Avimelekh78178dWell my advice to you is what helped me - to read up Marcus Aurelius "Meditations". Get into stoicism and in time it will get better.
sladuled8283178dI think main issue is that this work frustrates you..
There is no guarantee that other work will not make you stressed & anxious, but at least theres an option you won't hate it.
If you think you cannot make this work & like the stuff you do, consider changing jobs, but be careful how you do this...secure new job first & also be mindful how you talk about this job to new potential employer. You don't want to come off as arogant, a person who gives up easily, a person that easily spreads bad things around..even if they are true..
Another thing to consider is the amount of people who actually landed their dream job.. close to nothing compared to the unfortunate ones. So most of the mortals have to put up with some sort of not so great job, but you need to check with yourself if there are better jobs available & if you fit the roles & are you willing to risk that you'll land a better looking but in the long run even worse job if you decide to switch..
