I’m just stressed. Even when I’m not stressed, I’m stressed. I feel like I’m swimming with a 80lb weight attached to my ankle and there’s no hope of reaching the surface. And I felt like I was working through it, and then something else happened and now it’s like I just went ten steps forward and one mile backward. I can only pray that things will get better.
