Q. I am so stressed out. I am a secretary who has a low salary and a high volume of work. My boss is so horrible. I have a son with an illness and after working at the job for three years and doing late hours, my boss is so insensitive to my son’s illness. My son has a skin problem and it is not easy getting people to care for him, so many times I have to get home quickly after work. His father works in the evenings and so we are strapped for time. How can I get my boss to be more understanding?
