I feel like I’m made out of barbed wire. I don’t know how to explain it better but my brain feels so weird. Like it’s been replaced with wire. I can’t think straight and I had to take another day off of work. My parents barely care and I feel stuck.

    I know how frustrating this can feel, I'm sure we've all been there. Taking time off is definitely a good thing, maybe try doing some self care! Take a shower/bath and relax and reflect. Why do you thing your brain feels this way? Are you overwhelmed with work or responsibilities? Maybe you've been slacking on taking care of yourself? Usually when I get like this I try to do mindful practices like meditation (which is hard but guided one's on YouTube or headspace help) or yoga or Journaling! Even going for a walk outside can be helpful! Brains are weird and parents suck. It's okay to feel like this, just take it one day at a time 😊 You're doing the best you can and I'm proud of you!

      thank you ^~^ and I have been overwhelmed with trying to balance work and creating my first self published book. I guess I have been slacking in self care. It’s just hard for me to take a break when I have a goal sometimes

        I've been struggling with balancing school, work and my art. Usually self care and hobbies are the first things I cut out when im overwhelmed and it's not always the best but gotta do what you gotta do sometimes til balance comes back. Writing a book is HUGE so props to you 👏

    your description sounds a lot like burnout, and i’d see if descriptions of “brain fog” also ring true. as oddity_hunter said, self-care is incredibly helpful.
