    I'm just so lethargic these days. I have never slept well and take pills every night with more in the morning to wake up. I just feel like my body could stop and drop at any moment. I'm not sure if I'm sleepy deprived tired or mentally dead or perhaps all of the above. It's like...

    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?

    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.

    Sometimes it's just so hard,

    you feel like you've tried. I know though that I'm tired, but as soon as I wake up again, I'll be ready again to try and meet the day with it all again. Then do it all over again an write some more..about it. lol

    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.
