Counseling, Medical Prescriptions, Weight Changes, Increased Alcohol Consumption, Strained Relationships, Fatigue

I had problems with sleeping, my heart was constantly racing, I was having panic attacks like crazy, I did have to seek out counseling first year and second year, they did put me on anti-depressants, which I’ve recently gone off because I didn’t like the way they made me feel. It’s everything. It’s all connected. You feel like you’re not doing enough, and you work harder and harder.
