I had sleeping disorders, loss of appetite which resulted to weight loss, and I easily get irritated and mad. The effects to my health, mood, and my life as a whole made me take prompt action. 'Cause if not, for sure I'd be in a more difficult situation. I...

    Out of no where...

    I have been coping very well. I love my job and love what I do - but today has just been terrible. First time in 6 months I have cried on my way home from work. I stopped my medication when I started this job because I felt I didn't need it - and I haven't up until now. Today I just felt snappy, angry, tired, weepy - all these things at once. I haven't been sleeping and now my eating is going to...

    So I'll just keep this short.My boyfriend of nearly 6 months is about to come back down to the state that I love in where we both go to school (college). 2 separate universities, but still a hell of a lot closer than 819 miles away from each other. I've seen him once this summer, and it was about 3 weeks into my summer vacation starting, so I didn't really have any issues then. But we were both...
