I can't breathe...

I feel like I'm being crushed. I'm sweating like crazy. I can't even eat plain pasta without wanting to throw up. My eyes are sunken in. My cheekbones are jutting out. I look like I've lost 20 pounds in a single day. I'm shaking so badly I can barely type. I've had too much to deal with and the stress is causing my body to start shutting down. My doc keeps telling me to reduce my stress level, but every time I start to, even more gets thrown on me. 

Mentally I still want to keep going, keep fighting, but physically I've run out of strength. It's a struggle just to stand up. 

I love DD more than anything, but I need a vacation. The stress is literally killing me.

I'm unmarried. DD's dad emotionally cut me out.

DD is terminally ill

My 15 year old sis is pregnant.

I'm close to winding up homeless.

I can't find a job. 

I go to see a therapist tomorrow.

I am so sorry your having to deal with all of this right now.  The best thing you can do is to see a therapist.  I have dealt with major anxiety in the past and therapy really helped.  If you don't mind taking medication I know it can help a lot too.
