    upset

    I'd like to know the meaning of "upset" in the next passage.

    Ken, kim's boyfriend, was going to be gone for six months, that's not so bad, Kim thought as she packed his suitcase. A relationship needs time-we just met a year ago. This will give us a chance to sort things out. So why am I so upset? Sure, six months, but in Godforsaken place like Somalia!
    Ken said I had decided to work as a loan officer in the war-ranged African country. " That's where I'm needed"
    "But these people are killing Americas. They don't want our help!"
    "Okay, then what about me, Ken? I need you too."
