Stress Test

Stress Test

A Poem by Fanicia E.
"

Things are starting to overwhelm me

"

You know there's not enough time
To list the things on my mind
I sense a mental decline
My body's aching all the time

All this stress but I'm blessed
Yet it's still hard to find
A sense of peace
A bit of rest
I feel I need a lifeline

This is an incredible poem! It describes stress intimately. This sounds particularly like Stressed-out. Reaching your limit without a break, hence, needing a lifeline. Something to anchor you, something to rip through the tons of water and violent waves of stress in order to reach the sea floor, what you're working for, to find your destination and take a break before continuing moving forward.

An expressive write. It always amazes me how such few words can describe what takes stories to see for most to experience themselves.

My thoughts for dealing with this level of stress may be a bit unorthodox. I usually just throw myself into my hobbies. When I'm particularly moody, feeling multiple things too fast - too much, I graffiti. When I am thinking too much, I write. When I can't deal with it anymore I sleep like the dead then force myself unto a schedule to make sure I take a break, while still doing what I need to do.. and if people aren't letting you take a break, then take solace where you can. Self-reflect calms me the most, crying oddly enough is a healthy mechanism (and doing it in solitude is refreshing for me), breathing in smoke or candles soothes the aches in my chest... I couldn't really say what will help, only that you should reach out a try something different whenever you have the free time. Music helps a lot too. If you don't want to think, I usually listen to non-lyric music, and it helps me resonate with the tune/tone of the melody. I wish you luck in finding it. And I hope you well.

This is a balanced & realistic description of how life requires us to get thru the tough parts, but all the while being thankful for blessings. Good job of rhyme & wordplay with sounds. Here's sending a lifeline, hopefully you can feel the peacefulness of my wilderness existence here, to help ease your stress now & then! (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

Sounds like a case of burnout. Stress can be ignored only so long, and then things get out of hand. Take a break
