    I literally thought I was diabetic. I was scared and freaked out because I am fairly big and I do eat quite a lot, obviously. I ruled that out because I didn't actually have any of the symptoms, my brain tricked me into thinking it because I had looked up the symptoms and it was...

    There's Got to Be An End

    My wife and I have begun serious counseling in order to avoid divorce and I'm not sure I really want to avoid it.  I worry about the effect it will have on our kids more than anything else.  We need some rather drastic changes and I'm nor sure we can pull it off. ...

    I am so frustrated and stressed out.

    I feel like I haven't done anything significant. I'm 20 years old and an incoming junior in college. I want to start a business so badly and am tired of school. Sometimes I have no idea why I'm suing 60k a year to study stuff I don't really care about. I just want to get out...

    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...

    School,work,get a drivers license,

    money, family issues and pressure from parents and friends is some of the things who stresses me out to the point where I just want to cry. This year will be so hard and the only thing I can do is to pray.

    Soccer has always been my escape.

    I could leave home and not think once about school or anything. But since I sprained my knee last week I have literally been going insane. I can't focus on school, I am easily aggregated, and I just can't stand anyone besides my best friend. What is wrong with me??

    Everything is piling on top of everything else

    and the pointless tasks that need done are shouting in my ear. I have so much more important things to take care of than all of this. But of course, I suppose I'm the only one that considers them important.
