Oh man, totally! Sorry things are so hard :/ Grad school is a fucking bitch sometimes. I would just try to remember to tell my guy how much I loved and appreciated him, which seemed fairly effective at combating the bitchy taking-stress-out-on-him behavior I exhibited at other times. 

Hang in there, it gets better!

@JJBelle:  Just remember; it will not be like this forever! Things will slow down and smooth out. ((Hugs))

@JJBelle:  I can totally relate with you.  I am so sorry you feel the way you do.  My eyes were tearing up as I was reading this because it is so like the situation I am in.  It seems like everything is falling apart and nothing is going right for me.  I got a job promotion a couple months ago that I am HATING.  It is very stressful and I feel like I am alone in it.  I was thrown in with very little training and expected to know everything.  It has been the hardest time in the life so far.  I live 6 hours away from my dad and sisters and twelve hours away from my mom and other sister.  I don’t see them nearly enough and I can’t get enough time off to see them.  Holidays are so stressful-I just want to hide under a rock until it’s all over.  My boyfriend and I have been dating for 7.5 years and I feel like we’ll never be engaged. 


Sorry for the long venty response.  You are NOT alone and things WILL get better.  It’s hard right now, but pull through and it will all be worth it in the end!

@JJBelle:  Piled Higher and Deeper (Phd) refers to us masters students to. I think how you are feeling is perfectly normal but remember you are achieving so much even if you can’t see it right now ๐Ÿ™‚ HUGS it’ll get better

@JJBelle:  relate x 1000 my friend! And I don’t even have as much on my plate as you do so kudos.. You’re surviving, that’s the first step!

I feel you in the failing at being a good lover, failing at being a good house keeper and even letting the plants die. Know that you’re not alone. I have a fair number of plants that can attest to that. The only thing I have done is the oil change but that’s cuz I was already SO overdue that I crawled under the car and did it myself. Too poor for anything else. Sigh. Failing at that too!

I guess I don’t have a lot (any) advice except what I tell myself everyday. 

“Keep on truckin” it’s my motto. It gets better. It has to!!
