comment Is there a noun that means “the state of being flustered”?
I think "discombobulation" is the closest in meaning to all the suggestions I've seen. Thanks!

Flustered is not a noun, which is what I would need without rewriting the sentence. I should have made this clearer.

comment What is the correct possessive for nouns ending in “‑s”?
@FumbleFingers But "mistresses" is already plural and wouldn't get the extra s after the apostrophe anyway.

comment Is there any rhyme or reason to when one should double the last consonant when adding -ed or -ing?
Feel free to address Kosmonaut's addendum in your answers as well.

Do you have a source on this with proper names not needing an extra s? I am fairly certain it should still be Confucius's sayings, Jesus's teachings, and Camus's novels, with the first s still silent in the last case.
