Make it stop.

Ugh, things are getting tough. Death. Imminent death. A close friend suffering through their own personal crisis. The City of SF rejected our appeal about increased property taxes so we are having to pay even more taxes despite declining home values. I thought I had a handle on my Physics and Calculus classes but now they've both gone up a level in difficulty. I have two trips scheduled over Winter break but I don't really want to leave home, but neither do I want to stay and deal with things. I pulled a calf muscle when running this morning and don't know how long it will keep me from running, but I don't want to stop. I tend to eat more when under stress and now my pants are getting tight. And I haven't even gotten into just how broken this country is.

How much more of this can I take?

edit: People always think of me as being strong, and in some ways I am. But right now I am not strong and there's no one for me to lean on. I don't even understand my *$&#% homework.

I don't have a ton of context, but I really hope things turn around soon. It sounds like you have a lot to slog through right now, but I am thinking positive thoughts on your behalf.

Thanks. It's just stress piling up from too many places, and this camel's back is going out.

I shouldn't forget to give credit to Frederick, though. He's a huge help to me in times like this :)

Breathe, eat well, sleep if you can. Pet kitties. Kitties don't care about no book learnin'. :)

My previous shrink would not be thrilled with this advice, but what I often do is say, "at least I'm not in so-and-so's shoes" and that gives me a bit of a lift.

also, I really like this avatar. That should be worth at least %1 of cheer....

I think it's the one I have that's not fun or silly.

If you feel like venting (or going over your homework), I'm not that far from your 'hood.

Thanks. I have a feeling you can empathize with all of this.

It sure is. I hope the crappiness is over, since it's almost Friday and all :) *hugs* to you, too.
