Share your problems, big and small! And feel free to offer sage advice to your fellow forumites. So, what's eating you guys? I've been in Kyoto the last few days and visiting like 5 shrines has made me temporarily feel spiritual or something. I saved a beetle and got a free ofuda from the shrine. It's strange how something dumb like that can make me feel spiritual.

being in an unnaturual environment with strong artificial lighting from 4:30PM to 1AM everyday, it's playing with my mental health and when I get up the next morning I feel void of any kind of happiness, this can't continue..

Nothing.I'm at the top of the food chain. Suffering from Lion King withdrawal.

Nothing in particular troubles me at the moment , and I'm not even dreading going back to school soon. I'm sincerely worry-free at the moment.

My master's degree doesn't qualify me for the jobs I want since it's not backed with job experience.

I can't get a lower level job because I'm overqualified.

I've considered leaving my master's off my resume so I won't appear overqualified, but the career I'm entering is held to higher ethical standards than teachers, judges, or police officers. Maybe on par with doctors. So misrepresenting my qualifications could end my career before it starts.

What the hell do these people want from me?

If we're talking literal- then I guess a tapeworm.

If I had one that is.

I had a hard time focusing on my work. I freaking can't control my thoughts. I was trying control imagination from controlling itself. So uncontrollable, it made me lazy.

I fucking hate the medical industry. I'm sick of them taking my blood for tests and they still need more. I hate that chronic illness often gets treated as psychological or neurological problems because it's their way of a fuckin' cop out when their stupid textbooks don't match what I'm saying. They won't even let me talk and keep interrupting me. Makes me want to choke them out and I fucking hope I'm nearing the end of these stupid tests.

I was living a really healthy lifestyle for the last year or so, and some things happened all at once and I've let everything go. I used to carefully evaluate everything I ate for calories and nutrition and I exercised three times a week doing weight lifting, cardio, zumba, and yoga. I was at a healthy weight and met a lot of fitness goals. Then my mom had cancer, but it was a type that was easily removed. During that time I started eating my feelings again and stopped exercising because I was so tired all the time (when you don't meet your nutritional needs for the day, that's not surprising). The moment that ordeal was over my grandfather had a stroke and we just received the news that because he can't swallow any food that they're just going to send him home to die now.

I miss the happy, confident, strong person I used to be, but there's a strange comfort in being overweight again. My biggest problem is refocusing my efforts into being about getting stronger, not losing weight. I've never succeeded in trying to lose weight because it's always for the wrong reasons. I am ashamed to face the gym regulars and myself now that I've gained so much weight and lost so much strength.

It's only been four months and I'm struggling to love myself again, because that's how I started this journey last time.

Pressure from family & elders and getting new mental illnesses...the one I was recently diagnosed with & possibly PTSD...
I don't want anymore mental disorders because its already a pain for my mother to deal with. I feel even more burdening now for everyone.
I was never diagnosed with PTSD because it was from something I never told anyone about, and don't see the point to anyway, now. And I still don't wanna tell anyone.
Pressure is stressing me out. I'll be officially an adult next year..which is why. I expect people would have much higher expectations for me, so if I disappoint them, it'll feel even worse than usual.

My skin has had an outbreak so I'm so itchy! I'm taking extra baths with oats to sooth it a bit. My doc has been shrugging her shoulders at me for the past few years every time I mention how my skin is doing. I've already gone through their whole lists of meds twice and nothing worked.
