    Oh gosh exams are in 2 days

    and I'm not even half done with revision! It also feels like no matter how hard I study I go nowhere. (Am I just dumb?)

    I have problems dealing with stress,

    always have. Just over two years ago I had horrible stomach pains and my mom wouldn't take me in to my doctor. Well, it went on for a couple months, until one day I begged her to take me to the ER the pain was that bad. Sure enough, I had stomach ulcers from stress. Now I'm...

    I know I should not let it

    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...

    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...
