I don't know what's happening - January 30th 2011, 05:10 AM

I feel like I'm trying to distance myself from my friends and family. I don't have a particular reason as to why I would though. I've just been really stressed lately, barely get any sleep, and get terrible migraines. All of these things together make put me in a terrible mood and then I end up snapping at some point. Friends and Family have always been super important to me, so I don't want to break those bonds. What can I do to prevent myself from snapping at them so that I don't end up screwing every thing up?

Well, what's causing you to feel so stressed out? Is it schoolwork or something else you can pinpoint? Or would you blame your stress on "teenage hormones"? Either way, why not talk to your loved ones about what's going on? I have a friend who would push everyone away when he became depressed. He thought he was doing the right thing by shielding us; unfortunately, it just left us feeling confused and upset. Keep the lines of communication open... even if you're just venting, at least everyone will know what you're going through and will be able to support you during this difficult time. If you keep them in the dark, however, they may assume the worst, and that will only break down your relationships even further.

Hi there,

I think you should find the reason of your stress -if you don't know why- and try to change things so you're not so stressed out and so you don't snap out at people. If the stress source it's something you can't really counter then I belive you should try to explain this to your friends and family so they don't take it to heart if you do, or if you did apologize and explain things. I wouldn't go much as getting away since it might make stress stronger or make you feel lonely if they are a important part of your life. You can also just apologize and have a time out whenever you feel you're geting angry enough to snap at people and come back when you've calmed. I'm just giving options cause I do not know the specifics but I hope it helps even a little. If you want you're free to PM to talk things over.




and I need your sway, cause you always pay for it
and I need your soul, cause you're always soulfull
and I need your heart, cause you're alwyas in the rigth places

Amanda,

I am the exact same way you are! I get stressed easily, then I get migraines, and I hardly sleep. That all reflects on my mood, therefore we snap easily. if you are able to figure out what stresses you out, then you can figure out how to organize your thoughts better, and thing might seem to be a bit easier on you. If you are afraid of hurting the ones you care about, just apologize to them in advance. let them know that you are a bit snappy lately, due to stress, and not to take anything personally. That's what I do.

And with that, the same people you tell that you, can be ones that support you. Pulling away from people isn't necessarily a good idea, because you need people. People need people. To help with stress, maybe spend some time for yourself. Hang out with friends, or take a bubble bath. You should balance all the stress in your life, with things that aren't stressful.

As for not sleeping real well, stress is probably a factor. And if you do things to make you not so stressed, then you might sleep better. Also, cut all the caffeine out of your diet. When you are hacing a hard time falling asleep, drink some tea, or warm milk. Also, taking a bath will relax and calm you enough to sleep. I like to wind down before bed by drinking tea, and watching a movie. Also reading, or writing can help as well.

Hope this helped a little.

Re: I don't know what's happening - February 2nd 2011, 03:18 AM

Thanks for all the advice everyone
My stress is honestly from everything school related. I have musical practice everyday after school and that doesn't exactly help with my amount of homework unless my section isn't doing choreography and I have nothing else to do. Then after that I go straight home, cook some dinner for myself, shower, and do homework (Which I don't get to until about 8ish depending on what I decide to cook.)

Haha, on weekends I only take baths because they're so relaxing.
The strange thing is, I don't even really drink caffeine unless it's caffeinated tea and it's normally in the morning when I drink that. Also I get so worn out throughout the day that I would just expect to pass out as soon as I hit the pillow.
I'll definitely true to wind down before bed now though. Sometimes over the weekend I fall asleep while watching Food Network since it kinda bores me sometimes (And yet I still watch it xD), I should try snuggling up with my blanket and watching in during the week.
