Hi Peg,
It sounds to me like you may be hanging on the illusion of control. You like to have control over your projects and do a good job. This is fine, but it's also important to know when to trust others and when to allow others to take the lead on some project.

Since you are not planning to be in this job forever, this sounds like a great opportunity to give this some practice. Allow other people to work for you. Allow them to do things their own way. There are often many correct solutions to complex problems, and many paths to finding them. You have a lot of freedom to give up control, and I hope you can enjoy that freedom.

As far as mood swings go- can you try yoga or meditation? or DBT stuff? Something to get your mind to a more neutral state. A less reactive state, at which point you can begin to evaluate the actions of your boss and coworkers with a little more distance.

best of luck to you-
-ll
