    I am exhausted. I haven't slept in two days,

    I feel sick and therefore I haven't eaten in three days. I think I'm falling down the rabbit hole.

    I'm going through a stretch of no sleep,

    partly because I stopped a medication, and partly because a friend brought bed bugs to my car/house. Sorry I'm not writing more friends I just can barely drag myself along. I'll be back to full strength soon however as I always seem to come back strong. Thanks for understanding...

    Every single day this week has been horrible.

    I get up at 6:30, drive to university with two hours of traffic. When I finally get there, I have so much work and lectures that I forget to eat or drink. I have to practically babysit my group for this task we are set because they aren't doing their work. I'm stressing over...

    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.

    Mentally Stressed

    The other day while I was sitting at the computer, I was half awake and half asleep at the same time and I began to dream. It was weird too because my eyes were still open. I heard voices and realized what was happening. I shook my head and then I was fully awake again. I...

    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.

    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.

    I'm so tired.. I'm tired of being alone.

    Tired of being backstabbed. Tired of being thrown. Tired of being a nobody. Tired of living! I'm physically, emotionally and mentally tired about everything!
