    I'm overwhelmed with work in the cafeteria.

    I go from task to task to task. It wears my legs out because I have a disability that requires how I walk and when I stand for a long time, I'm tired. My boss won't even give me a break but she gives everyone a break except me.

    Just a week away from the stress

    and trials of life would be fine. I don't need/want a holiday, just the freedom to relax without stress at home. That would be marvellous.

    I'm 22 and not even interested in doing this routine of trying to be content with the day to day cycle of living in America. I swear I'm trying but I'm absolutely miserable. It's like I can't achieve my own routine. I don't know who I am. Just wish there was a place I could go...

    And not like friendship love. I don't like him like that anymore. Sometimes I want to pause my life and chill for a while.

    Sometimes it would be nice to truly escape.

    I suppose the only real way out is death. Right now that's not an option, but I feel like I'm just dropping lower every day. I'm emotionally exhausted and it's making me physically run down. My home life is stressful and unless I am drunk, etc. I really can't stand being there...

    I get so fed up with how life goes from time to

    time. Every single day just feels like it repeats and I feel so lonely. No fun. No fun. Everything just seems the exact same. Things get way crazy. Just a break would be wonderful.
