Feeling awful.....

Recommended Posts

Well, school just started in my country and I don't know what I'm feeling. I used to be studying in the afternoon session but recently I changed to the morning session, so there's something wrong with my sleep i guess.


I only get about 4 hours sleep every night and I feel awful even before my school ends. I've tried sleeping earlier but I just couldn't sleep. I'm happy now in school because I've got new friends.


But I've got a problem, everytime I get home or into my car, I feel so irratable with whatever around. I hate the traffic jams, I hate the sun and I don't like my mother because she babble so much when all I want is silence(I know girls like to talk a lot but I'm the one that likes silence more.). I didn't intend to scream at my mother, but I just did. Now I feel so sorry for what I did.


What is wrong with me? Is stress taking its toll on me? I have a major exam this year so I have to study and stuff. Now I say things that I don't want to or intend to. It's like having someone else control my body while I watch in horror.

What am I supposed to do? Can someone give me some advise please....... Thank you...

Dear tough_girl,


Ever heard of the Eagles' song "Take it Easy"? That always cheers me up!


I can totally understand what you're going through, I was like that freshman year in college. Are you just starting off at a new school? That may explain the cause of a lot of your stress. When I first went to college, I was a wound up rubber band ready to snap. Minimal sleep, bad roommate, failing tests... you name it. The first visit home, my parents thought I behaved worse than during my teenage years! I'm sure your mother will understand what you're going through.


Bottom line, there can be so many sources of stress, but you know what? It doesn't matter... just do your best in classes and be the best person you know how to be! It's not the end of the world if some things don't go your way. My advisor once told me, "We both know you're not an A student, so relax. Work hard, play hard, and be happy with B's..."


Try to separate work time from personal time - don't let the source of stress invade all aspects of your life. Do things you enjoy. Excercise to release stress. Hang out with friends to forget about things for a while. And most importantly, take care of yourself... eat right, work out, and sleep in every so often. Once you feel good, other things will fall into place. Oh yeah, and don't be afraid to talk to people about how you feel.


Hope I've helped... good luck!
