I'm Stressed and I'm Not Alone

 6 Signs You're Way Too Stressed:

You're perpetually sick and just can't seem to get over it.

Your back and/or neck is always hurting.

You're having trouble concentrating.

You're having trouble sleeping well.

Your hair is falling out.

You have a headache that just won't go away.


5 out of 6 - this just can’t be good. This all has been going on for 15 years or so now, and is much worse in the last 2 years. With my health problems, money issues, and an addiction to deal with, life has sucked rather a lot the last couple of years. Being that the price of food has doubled in the last year, and my income has been the same for many years, life has not been that happy. The worst part is, the chronic lack of sleep has made my physical health deteriorate faster, so it’s a never ending cycle that is slowly getting worse and accelerating.


I’m very much not alone in my group of friends with this, a lot of them are also dealing with the same kind of health and money issues. The decline in the economy has made people literally sick, and this is putting a strain on the healthcare system as well as the people. Government seems stuck unable to make effective changes to the healthcare system or generate better paying jobs for people. We can’t afford more taxes and without them, there is no magic money to bolster the hospitals and hire more doctors and nurses.


I honestly don’t see myself having a better life at all before I die. I think it’s just going to keep getting worse. Even in subsidized housing, the utility fees keep going up every year and I have the same money year after year. The prices of everything go up, and I’m stuck on the same amount of money as the year before and before that. So this health issue called stress will never be gone, it’s just going to get worse.
