    It's Ruining My Life

    Lately, I've been stressed out so much. The littlest things get me stressed out and it's making it hard for me to deal with life at the moment. Today I just completely broke down because I couldn't take it anymore. I'm still finding it hard to deal with the fact that my dad has...

    My Brain Shuts Down

    I have very low stress tolerance. As soon as something unpredictable occurs that's not routine, some problem at work or whatever, my brain stops working. I forget important things. It's like my brain is running at maximum capacity all the time, and the smallest thing can make...

    A Little Stressed Lately...

    A lot of things haven't been going the right way, lately, and it's been pretty stressful. It started when the alternator went in my car. We took it somewhere to get it fixed, and they replaced it. Then, two weeks later, it went again. They checked everything out, and all they...

    I've been trying to reject this guy

    for three days now, but it seems as though he still has not gotten the message! I just want him to leave me alone. He constantly texts me even when I blatantly ignore him. I'm not sure whether it's because he's dense or just stupidly persistent. I only met him around last week...

    I really hate school and I can't stand sitting in class and listening and then going home and doing homework! It's just so boring so I haven't been doing very well in school and it's stressing me out! Like high school determines your whole future pretty much and then there's...

    I can't handle hearing everyone's problems on

    too of my own. I only have 3 friends I regularly kick it with and my fiancé. I've had to limit communication with my family because they stress me out SO badly. It's healthier that way and I'm fine with it. I'm just very emotionally sensitive.

    Hate to admit it, but it always comes on easily.

    I needlessly worry about nothing making things worse than they need to be. Want so bad to stop doing it, but it always happens. I have to relax more in order to be better for myself.

    It's beginning to affect me physically.

    I am having thoughts of running away, disappearing completely or hurting myself. Trying to think more positive. It's worse than normal because of lack of sleep. Hopefully, I'll sleep better tonight.

    They don't understand everything I see

    and hear, and how it all just builds up inside. Everything just remains, and I'm constantly thinking about it. The thoughts don't go away. The constant worry. I get so worked up about it and stressed and nobody understands. :/ Oh the perks of being a teenager.

    Today. I destroyed a mans hope today.

    I didn't know what to say. When he asked "what's wrong with you?" I replied, "it's what I do." He looked at me in distaste, A horrid scowl upon his face. You see the problem isn't him, it's me. I forgot how complicated things could be. I loved him more than he could know. To bad...

    There's nothing like being called in to cover

    for someone who left a pile of unfinished work and I have no clue what any of it pertains to. The sweet part is I made it my b**ch. I need a raise.

    less but things don't always work out the way you want them too. I was stressed out when I had to audition to get into my choice university's music program. I stressed when I helped a local high school orchestra with The Wizard of Oz play. I stressed when I had 3 concerts in the...
