I Am Exhausted

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 221 People

    Our organization just finished hosting a

    two-day national event for chemical engineering students. I feel so washed up and weak after all the work, and I still have a lot of exams to go. Where can I buy extra time? Just to get some well-deserved rest.

    I don't know who to talk to.

    I feel like maybe if I write about my experience anonymously it won't put the people I love even more at odds with each other, or me. In the last year my father in-law shed light on living a double life (he has same sex attraction) throughout a good part of my husband's...

    It's always been cathartic

    for me to cry knowing some benevolent higher power could here me. It's becoming more & more apparent that nobody is listening.

    Exhausted

    I don't do anything, I feel exhausted / drained.  I do things, I feel the same.  When I wake up in the morning, most time, I feel even worse then when I went to bed from the exhaustion.  When is this going to end?

    I am emtionally, mentally,

    socially exhausted. I try to tell people things like wear plugs around loud equipment, do not jump from 5-10 off ground, check part numbers, be careful you have people in the back of this vehicle. Then they get mad at me or refuse to take responsibility. So just exhausted.
