Rent. Bills. Finances. Food. Health. Depression. Anxiety. These are all things that either cause, contribute, or make my stress worse. I always have to worry if something is paid on time, or paid enough, or if I can afford food, or if I'm eating healthy enough. Then there's worrying about getting into legal trouble or being hit with a stray bullet (paranoia from nowhere). It's too much to handle.
This past week I've been elbows deep in a project where our leader isn't communicating and just isn't fit for this type of this etc etc so it's been extra stressful, alongside with my general stress. This week I've cried myself to sleep every night, thrown up from a panic attack, almost not eaten anything, had three nosebleeds and most importantly until today, not a single movement. But today it happened and now I feel normal again.
I'm blocked from offmychest so I though this was the next fitting sub for this tidbit.
I broke up with my boyfriend, it was a toxic relationship lasted a year. Even tho it was all toxic I miss him, to distract myself I should hang out with people, but honestly.. I'm not good with people. I don't have lots of friends, and they are not even good..
My third year in high school is ending and it's really stressful with last tests. I have 3 more weeks to go but it feels like eternity.
I decided that I will study more to get a 3.0 GPA so that I can access to college. But to attend college in America.. I will go there and live by my own. So all these thoughts are making me exhausted.
I feel like I want to isolate myself more than I already am. Like, as soon as I finish my school day, I'll head home and try to relax. I don't want to see anyone and talk to anyone. My mother said that it's been too much time since I actually made a real smile, not a fake one.
It's just that I have priorities (like college) and I can't seem to mantain friendships because I'm so emotionally beaten down and stressed.
I see everyone like an enemy now: I started to dislike everyone for their shitty behavior. Everyone is just so annoying and kinda mean these days.
It's also me whom is messed up with emotions and ugh.. how do I just cope with all these emotions and all this stuff?
I have an exam in 3 weeks. I have been learning for months yet my parents think I don't do anything all day. My dad never complains because he knows I learn a lot but my mom acts crazy over the least important things. Today I started learning at like 9pm because I came home from private classes at 6 and I wanted to relax. When she saw that I was watching tv she started screaming and telling me she hates me and stuff. I get angry too but I keep it to myself and litterarly hit pillows or smash my arm against the table (I get angry real quick and overreact too). The stress also makes me eat alot. I went from slim to like 25% body fat in under 4 months. What can I do?
Last night I was cooking dinner for my gf while she was setting up a sprinkler in the front yard. She had been out there by herself for several minutes while I was working in the kitchen not knowing that the following factors were causing her to become stressed: a weak hose that kept kinking so water wouldn’t flow through it, the three neighbors dogs barking at her through the fence (they were within three feet of her, and trying to connect two hoses that did not want to fit. When I finished getting dinner ready, I happily went outside to let her know dinner was ready. Up to this point we had been having a lovely evening and I never suspected anything was wrong so my mental and emotional defenses were down and I was not expecting anything. After I told her dinner was ready I stood waiting for some response while keeping our dog busy, mowing she might get in my gfs way. She turned around a yelled,”You don’t have to rush me!” And went back to doing what she was working on, clearly angry. I had no response and could only stammer that I wasn’t rushing her and finally gave up and went inside and sat on the couch to figure out what had just happened. This isn’t the first time she has snapped at me when I am not the source of stress on her but after the inevitable argument and makeup she told me how she had been stressed by all the things I had listed and believed I had come out to hurry her along to dinner. She is seeing a therapist now for about a year but only once a month but I think she should be seeing them about twice a month but she always has excuses why she can’t. So I want to know how I can avoid her snapping at me like that again in the future. How do I keep her from getting stressed out by ordinary, as I see them, things?
For a while I have been dealing with stress in my life. Now I get stressed over small things not only big events. (18 female btw) 1. I have exams coming up which is very stressful 2. Getting a haircut on Monday, I hate it. The idea of sitting there having people stare at you and just looking at myself in the mirror 3. I'm really insecure about how I look, I'm always stressed out about it especially in public 4. Gets to the point where it just drains all my energy and I get frustrated and at the verge of tears :( How can I learn to deal with it?
This is something I've noticed myself doing often the last few years. When I'm stressed (not always consciously) I feel this really intense urge to shower more often and if I don't I feel really gross, as if I haven't showered in a week. So when this happens I usually take three (sometimes four) showers in a day. I know it's terrible because I'm wasting so much water but I can't seem to help it. Does anyone else get this?
So my case manager just left and once again she doesn't really listen to me or understand were I'm coming from and I've been thinking of getting another case manager for a while now. I honestly just don't know what to do at this point anymore.
So, I'm extremely stressed out every since last week, its been extrmely hard to sleep in, I have anxiety feelings throughout the day. Last night I fell asleep at 4 am and woke up at 8 due to the feeling. (usually when I sleep early its ok)
Anyways I know the origin of the stress but like I really can't do anything about it for a few weeks and it's really bothering me.
I dont like feeling constant stress throughout the day. Especially when my mind just wonders and yeah.. it sucks.
What do you guys reccommend? What are some good ways to just relax and destress?
