I Am Stressed Out

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 7,742 People

    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 don't want to sleep,

    I don't want this morning to come any faster. Time is the enemy. There is not enough time.

    I am stressed out over hanging out with people.

    Why I am? Swear to god my sisters and I have the same friends so we hang out with each other and it's a ******* mess. My sisters hardly communicate and I get blamed for it. I'm always making plans and when it doesn't work out I'm cleaning it up. My parents want a 3 day advanced...

    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.

    Everything sucks. I have a final tonight

    that I literally started studying for yesterday. I already took the class before so I have all the old exams which are basically exactly the same as the new ones, so I've been doing really well and not needing to study. When I looked for my old final yesterday I realized we...

    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...

    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...

    6. 6pills. One for every second it took me to

    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

    As many of my friends know I recently sold my

    house that I have not lived in for 2 years. My Ex wife was in it until September of last year. Then we had to finish the divorce paper work which included putting the house entirely in my name, since I was buying out her equity in the house. Once that process was complete...

    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...

    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...

    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...
