    I can't concentrate on anything when I'm stressed, I cant do anything, I dont feel inspired or motivated. I get tired, have stomache aches, headaches, dont feel like talking to anyone but I can't stand being alone either. I don't have energy but at the same time I'm so restless...

    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?

    Tonight I'm going to eat

    and drink with my friends. I'm going to enjoy tonight and ignore all the stress I've been feeling. I'm going to ignore my money problems, my self esteem issues, my work stresses all for one night. I hope I can actually do it.

    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...

    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.

    Why is it that when you have a good day,

    then there is point where something bad happens and ruins the rest of the night? I am stressed out almost 24/7. There is always something going on at home. Why can't I have peace and quiet for once?

    Is it bad that I really don’t care anymore?

    What I mean by that is I don’t really care about the life stories of other people. People have used their life stories to make me soft and vulnerable. To get what they want and use me. I’ve stopped caring because last semester wrecked me and I was taken advantage of. It’s...

    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??
