Excellent comments from Q. This is the same company, so the senior staff ought to know you well enough already.
If you had just 2 days of training for something your predecessor had been doing for 5 years, its hardly surprising that you are finding it all a bit overwhelming at first. Relax and give yourself time to settle in. Your boss apparently had confidence in you --- talk it over with her, and ask for advice on ways to cope with this phase of the work. Ask for advice about how realistic the deadlines are ( they need to take into account your newness to this role ) and the need you feel for a source of reference. They MUSt know that they have puished you in at the deep end, and should be prepared to provide help and support to enable you to adapt more comfortably
