I'll admit it; my sister drives me insane. She does this thing that I call the "intentional woe-is-me" - she schedules her life so that she does not get a moment to breathe - even though half the things she does are completely unnecessary. Then she whines to world about it. You can't ask "How are you?" without getting a predictable, "Oh, well...." answer. You will then hear about everything she has been doing and why she's so overwhelmed. She came over for my DH's birthday and the first words out of her mouth were, "I'm getting sick." Oh, okay...hello to you too...even every Facebook status she posts reminds the world how overwhelmed and busy she is.
I don't believe for one second that she's miserable: she LOVES being busy. She intentionally overworks herself JUST so she can talk about it. I'm just as busy as she is, but I don't spend my free time whining about it!
Do you know anyone like this?

I know somebody like that. She has fibromyalgia (sp?) where the muscles just won't relax, and she wonders why. The woman doesn't know how to sit down. It is like something is chasing her and if she sits down it will catch her.
