You never feel caught up with any of the 100 things on your to-do list. You feel the weight of the world on your shoulders and you feel like you can't breathe. You sacrifice your sleep, diet, and overall well-being for everyone else. You're starting to get resentful that others can make time for themselves, but you can't. You wonder how you look in the eyes of your partner, kids, and co-workers and if they can tell something has changed. "
