    Are you eating enough? Here's a calorie calculator to figure out your energy needs. If you're undereating you might not have enough energy to do everything you need to do.

    probably not, I don't eat when I'm running around because I don't think about it.

    I don't know how much I weigh.

    wait if I was a size 10 and now a size 6 and i was 165 at size 10 how much would you guess i weighed now?

    ok I've given up not collapsing from exhaustion/not crying my eyes out on friday when i get home. so now how do I keep obnoxious people from getting to me. when I literally have no place where I can be alone with my thoughts and distress?
    monday out of the house from 8:30 am-7pm
    tuesday-1-6
    wednesday 10-7
    thursday-study day nothing gets scheduled unless absolutley nesecerry
    friday-7:20-4

    now this might not seem like a lot but never going out ever to this, maybe I just need to adjust.

    I do not like being an adult.

    and people are saying, oh you're doing this consisently and you don't have an excuse to be lazy. but I am so close to just having a breakdown and saying fuck it.

    FWIW I think a lot of the high emotions and overwhelm comes with the territory of not being part of the adult world that is "settled." A lot of grad students have a teary breakdown session very frequently. It's hard to be an adult but not show adult markers that we presume are necessary.

    Those things are not necessary, though. In most cultures adults are much more interdependent than here. Lots of more flex and variety.

    I see how it's easy to get lost in activities and become absorbed in your environment to the point where you forget to eat or drink, but you i suggest you take some time to reflect what's important to you and why and then go over the steps that will help you become successful towards your goals. Keep in mind that if you're not in good shape (so to speak), meaning you're not getting enough food, water or sleep, that this will affect your performance no matter how you go around it. It's something worth addressing and taking the time to attend to and learn to enjoy doing.

    In terms of lacking personal space, create your own invisible bubble. Listening to music using earbuds/headphones can help. You can also go hang out in quiet places if you don't have any place where you live, like your room or bathroom. You can go to a small restaurant, coffee shop, in your car, a park, nature, etc...even if it's just for 15-30mins to exhale.

    If you have been pushing yourself to the point of exhaustion and are at the brink of saying "fuck it," you should go with your gut! Clearly you've had enough and your body is yelling that out to you. All you can do is assess that the approach you've taken, or the obligations you've accepted, aren't working and something needs to change.

    Take a deep breath and do some triage. Prioritize things that have a deadline, then focus those one by one. Don't try to do multiple things at once, you'll just get distracted. Focus on the big picture instead of getting swamped by what's left to do.

    Being anxious prevents you from relaxing, which prevents you from being rested, which will eventually wear you down. Fight for those moments of rest.

    I'm required to get 12 hours of volunteer work a week. I have 9 guaranteed each week, and luckily I was told I can do things around the house for the other 3 which is nice
