Why is it that when something happens then everything else happens all at once? I am having life dump on me right now, but its all little things. A lot of little things add up and I have a ton of stress. Does it seem like this to everyone else? Do you have a bunch of small things add up to overwhelming at the same time?

Yes, it seems I do. Not too long ago, it seemed my whole life was bad. I had a work at home job. I was telemarketing, using my cell phone. I was supposed to get the guy 5 appointments a day. After 6 weeks, I had not got paid, my phone bill was going up, I had no income. Finally, he tells me I didn't get 5 appointments a day, I breached the contract and he didn't pay me. I take medication for epilepsy. I forgot to take them one night and had a seizure, banging my foot on the floor several times injuring my foot. Now I'm in pain, money is too low for me to do anything about it. And job leads stopped coming. And with me limping, not a good time to go on an interview. This all came in a matter of about 6 weeks. So I know what you mean. My foot is about 80% better, I got my unemployment reinstated, I've had an interview and I'm getting calls from employers.

life is sometimes really miserable, difficult to keep pace with. when-ever i am stressed i try to keep myself calm, and avoid negative thoughts. i always try to be positive.

I completely agree with you. I have experienced that countless times and it can be very frustrating to deal with all those little things. They definitely do add up and create anxiety. I hope that soon things will calm down for you.
