It depends: Is this a new problem, one you've had for a while, or one you overcame in the past but has come back? Either way, I can see why this disturbs you. Getting enough sleep? Feeling rested? Facing situations that seem "over your head"? Feeling sadness, or physical symptoms like stomach problems, tiredness, headaches. Please see a trusted medical provider SOON, who can help get you back on track.
