I Am Stressed Out

    I was more worried about writing the other paper

    because I didn't have an outline at all, but now that I've finished it and am onto the next one, I feel even more worried. I had 1,300 words written this time last week. I don't have anything written this time, other than the outline. Even though it's nearly 1,000 words, many of...

    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!

    Last night was so scary.

    My heart was beating really fast and I was very panicked. I was trying to take deep breaths to slow my heart rate down. It felt like I was back on that anti-anxiety medication....anyways it took a long time for it to slow down. I took a drink of this sleep stuff I have that has...

    Adult Resignation (we Should All Do This) Lol!

      To Who it May Concern: I am hereby officially tendering my resignation as an adult. I have decided I would like to accept the responsibilities of an 8 year old again. I want to go to McDonald's and think that it's a four star restaurant. I want to sail sticks...

    As usual, where do I start.

    So work hates me, they gave me even LESS hours then they did the week before. I'm scheduled about 9 hours, which wouldn't be a big deal, but Robert spur of the moment quit his job yesterday because they keep messing with his paychecks. They play with the sales volume and try to...

    I wish I could run away to a tropical island

    and never look back at my old life. No school, homework, drama. I'd take my best friend with me and we would have a blast. Being lazy in the sun all day, singing by a campfire every night. Yet here I am, stressing over homework. Close to a breakdown even though I just had...

    I don't like how much my family subtly

    pressures me to find a man to marry ;_; I'm only 20 and the thought of commitment (to almost anything, not just a man) terrifies me at this point. Not to mention the part of my brain meant for reasoning and logic isn't even done developing yet and won't be fully developed until...

    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...

    Most people eat a lot

    when they are stressed out, for me it's the opposite. I don't eat at all to the point where I'm begged to eat something, my mood gets so low. I just hope when all is said and done and at the end of the month comes, I'll get my appetite back for some awesome food and those...

    It's Life Everybody experiences times

    when nothing seems to go right. It's life. The way it is. Usually you take it in stride. Knowing time will move on; things will get better. Nothing is destined to stay as it is. No matter how long things are bleak or crumbling down everywhere. As the song says, you know...

    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...

    Anyone else have bruxism?

    I always clench my teeth together, for some reason I can't help it. It provides a sort of relief. I don't grind them hard or anything but I bite down and it's like a really bad habit. I certainly don't want to damage my teeth though but it's really hard. It use to be worse...

    realise I have no one to talk to about how I feel. How the past week has been amazing, but now with 3 days until I'm back at work I'm starting to feel sick with stress. Crying, little to no sleep. No one should feel this way about their 'dream'job

    Sometimes I feel the need to let go.

    But I can't. Like there's some intrinsic force tying me to the past and reality where I am bound to its will. Is this what they call life. It's unbelievably pathetic that I can't get over even just the simplest things.
