    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...

    All this stuff currently happening in my family.

    The pressure, the attention, its really stressing me out to the point its making me kinda sick. I just want to be who I am, not who parents want me to be. Its only day one and I feel like a huge weight is on me. I feel alone and cornered into something I don't want. I feel like...

    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.

    Stressed out it's an understatement

    for me right now. So my son's fathers parents called and I wasn't going to answer it because I thought they were going to annoy me about my ex and I always arguing so I didn't answer . The 3rd time they called I was like what's going on ?! They never call me and why call me when...

    I'm not exactly the picture of perfect health.

    A few years ago I was diagnosed with a rare liver disease, and due to not being properly treated, I decided to seek a series of second opinions at one of the best hospitals in the country. I had a feeling I was very sick, and since I would prefer not to get bad news alone, I...

    I have to go to court in the morning.

    This will be the last time, finally putting an end to over a year of nonsense with an ex. Seeing her will make me upset for the entire day, as usual, and I probably won't eat much for a few days. Even after all this mess and how much she has tried to hurt me, I still wish we...

    Sometime you can't overcome with everything,

    but you will learn a great lesson from it. If you fall then try to stand up and start again.

    I get stressed really easily.
