All this stress just seemed to hit me out of nowhere just now

As I'm online I'm working on my online classes and I noticed I had a bunch of schoolwork missing and I didn't even know. All of this could affect my grade and I didn't even know there were assignments even though I check up on it regularly. In another class, I wasn't able to turn in an assignment because I didn't have a printer to print it out and now my grade suffers from it. Then I start thinking of my job and how people are going to get fired and I can't help but worry about losing my job. All of this stress came out of nowhere just now and I'm just sitting here with tears rolling down my face not knowing what to do about any of it. I really hate days like this :(

Can you work on those class works first and start looking for a new job. How soon will you know who is getting fired? I would try going to ask the boss to please let you know as soon as possible because your bills are due. Please try to stop stressing out. I know I am the last person who should say this but,I know how much it can hurt.

I'm going to have to. School is the most important thing right now and that will definitely come first. Hopefully they tell us soon who's getting fired so I can have that weight lifted off my shoulders. I feel better now, it's just that I started thinking about all the problems at once and I got overwhelmed.

Hope you've recovered from all this stress by now! I know what you mean about some days just hitting you. When all of a sudden, all of the stress that you've been trying to manage, just suddenly come at you from all sides. I hate those days too. I just recovered from one, a couple of days ago!

First, you need a hug! Next, you need to get enough sleep tonight and drink lots of water and tea because all that stress makes you more susceptible to illness. Getting sick won't help you. I disagree with Gifts. I wouldn't ask my boss if you are among those to be fired. Just do your best to produce for him or her. Do what you can about the missing assignments. If it's not too late, remember you could transfer your assignment to a thumb drive and take it somewhere else to print it. Many places do this, and maybe a friend could. If it's daylight when you read this, and you're able, go out for a short walk. It will help your state of mind and help you think better. It will also remind you that the world is bigger than your troubles. If you are a believer, pray and remember God loves you and cares about your troubles. I will also pray for you.

Aww, thank you :) I've calmed down a but since yesterday but I still worry about it. I'm just hoping that they let us know who's going to get fired so I can stop worrying about it, in the meantime, I'll just focus on my schoolwork that needs to be done and study for finals and midterms and hope for the best
