I work as a Junior Developer in a relatively small company, around 8 people. 4 developers, 2 support/project managers. 2 bosses with varying roles.
Every Tuesday the support team who also manage projects leave for 4-7 hours to have a meeting about upcoming work and current issues. During this time the support desk is left unattended. Me and another developer have picked up tickets and live chats while they are away which is fine. It's on the computer and doesn't distract too far from my work.
I'm worried that having to get up from my desk, answer phone calls about anything will interrupt my focus during development.
A big issue for me is my Anxiety, which in the past has flared up during phone calls and is something that is worrying me, especially if I have to speak to clients.
How can I talk to my Boss/Co-Workers about this without sounding like I want to get out of work, especially in a small company where manpower is limited.
