    I know I should not let it

    but anxiety is getting the best of me. The constant state of absolute stressed out is exhausting ..... I need a vacation from this hellish reality . It's getting harder to fake it.

    I made plans to hangout with my "friends"

    and those "friends" took advantage of my idea. They said "yeah lets go!", 30 minutes pass and i ask if they are ready to go? They told me they were already with all my friends and out doing stuff. They sure were having a lot of fun while i sat in my bed all night. I felt so left...

    I now know what true stress feels like.

    After these last five days at work I'm feeling so incredibly overwhelmed. I have another week to go with the scary and intimidating nurses that have ripped my heart and soul apart. I just wanna quit but I know I shouldn't. I need a stress reliever asap.

    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!

    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.

    I've made decisions in my life

    that some family members have taken exception to. I'm so overwhelmed by rejection and arguments ..... Why is one generation so accepting of those who identify with LBGTQI and yet others will slam the door in your face?

    I have a tendency of bottling up things

    when I'm stressed so I'll try and dish them all out here. I take too much responsibility for others actions and I need to chill out mentally. Maybe that's not it.. maybe I'm just being low on myself. The main stress is coming from parenting and me striving to be a good Dad...
