    Constantly. School is just crazy.

    I can't handle it all. I always manage to get it all done, but the feeling of failure overwhelms me.

    I'm in my early twenties.

    Stress has been my companion for years. When I was a young kid I moved abroad with my parents and when finally going to school with all of the kids who were locals - that's pretty much the moment when I became a loner. Or started to feel like one. So my social life has never...

    Stressed out it's an understatement

    for me right now. So my son's fathers parents called and I wasn't going to answer it because I thought they were going to annoy me about my ex and I always arguing so I didn't answer . The 3rd time they called I was like what's going on ?! They never call me and why call me when...

    Have you ever been in depth of two worlds all

    at once, yet your trying to survive the reality and what we all call a fantasy. It's as if two parallel walls were of anger and hatred seeking the in between. Its the emotion levitating within both structures, leaving the remains of an unknown aspiration. Imagine only half of...

    I feel a bit stupid. I feel like,

    I should have known better than to get comfortable and get my hopes up. Until the last year or so my family has been broken, in a way. We've always been dysfunctional. Since before I was born. I guess my dad has been trying to be less of an ***. Under the condition that my mom...

    I keep stalking him on facebook.

    And I hate it. And everytime I decided not to stalk him anymore, his picture just appear on my timeline hanging out with one of my facebook friends. And then I get depressed and think about him again. What should I do?

    I think the best way to explain my stress is

    the following: I went on one of those medical help websites and read the symptoms of long term stress, and I have most of them, emotional, physical, cognitive and behavioral symptoms. I also did the stress questionaire on that website. The results are interpreted thus: 0-10...

    I have been letting things

    that are beyond my control take over my life and I need to just let go of some of this stress so that's what I'm going to attempt to do now. It's not healthy and my body is unhappy about the stress so I just have to find a way to make it less consuming.

    Finally finished my essay,

    climbing into bed at 1:45am. Probably should've finished my homework for other classes but I figured I better try to get a couple of hours of sleep before I have to wake up for school at 5:00am. Graduation needs to hurry up before I lose my mind!

    I was stressed out today.

    My ex husband had lost his job, the house, everything. And since his entire family are psycho, and because he is the father of our child, he turned to me for help. Surprisingly, my fiancé agreed to lend him our spare room in the basement. But he's been here for a week, and it's...
