The apartment is filled with boxes. I'm so over stressed I don't know where to start, and I'm pretty sure the stress is starting to make me sick :(

Start with the kitchen, then the bathroom. I just moved and it sucked but you need a functional kitchen and bath. Just do what you can and stop when it gets overwhelming.

One at a time....just take them one at a time. I would start in the kitchen and make my way out.

I always start with the kitchen, a kitchen makes a house a home and once that is done everything just flows. If you get stressed take a step back and catch your breath, regain your thoughts and start again. Good luck! :)

Yep,  this is good advice.  I've moved 6, maybe 7 times in 5 years.  Always know where your coffee pot and coffee are.  The kitchen is usually pretty easy to set up.  Bathroom next so you can shower up after a long day of unpacking.  Then make up your bed and crash out.
