Hartlepool United boss Paul Murray has hardly stopped since his appointment last week, and will soon delegate more to his assistant Willie Donachie.
The 38-year-old's first game in charge was a which saw Pools go bottom of League Two.
"It's been difficult. I'm not sleeping, or eating much either, but when you first come in you want to do a lot and get a lot across," he told BBC Tees.
"I'm very hands on at the moment, but will pass more on to Willie soon."

Murray left a coaching role at Oldham Athletic to become Colin Cooper's permanent replacement at Victoria Park.
He was denied a point on his managerial debut by an 87th minute goal.
"We showed some real naivety to concede that late from a long-throw - I think we thought we already had a point," added Murray.
"It's my job to improve the players here, but I look at the squad and there's no mid-range aged players who know the game.
"We need that. There's a huge gap in the group so I'll definitely be making additions."
