So I still can't sleep at night, so I am tired throughout the day. I am still doing ok in school, but all I want to do is sleep, and then I have work right after that so at work I'm lagging and I can't concentrate. My managers now tell me to just go into the back to work because I get so irratable. I work at Mc Donalds so being happy kinda comes with the job. I have been more quick to snap at people for the smallest things. When I get there I really just want to yell at everyone to shut up and leave me alone. Then when im done with work I think since I've been so tired I will finally be able to get some sleep, but as soon as my head hits the pillow I start to think about everything that im unhappy with, and its not untill 4 o' clock that i can actually get a little bit of sleep. I'm worried that I'm going to end up getting fired or getting suspended from work. I don't know how I can be like this and work, everything is just getting to me.

Hi, have you seen anyone to be assessed for depression/anxiety?  Are you taking any sort of medication for either of these?  If not you really may want to consider this as it seems that you have alot on your schedule right now.  I know trying to balance school and working is difficult and extremely stressful which can cause depression and if you already have depression make this even worse.  Sleep difficulties are also a huge factor that are affected with this.  So please do check into getting some help with this.  Also, one thing that is going to be important is making time for just you.  Even if it is just an hour a day where you can take a bath, take a walk, exercise, take up yoga (which is very good for the mind and body), or just sit quitely and read.  You have to be able to unwind and rest your mind and let some of your stress just be set aside for awhile.  I hope if you do try this that you find that it works.  Be well...
