Thank you. I feel a hell of a lot better now that I've managed to sleep for a good amount of time instead of losing it because of various circumstances.
What it requires is fortitude. Remember that everything in life is temporary. I've noticed a lot of Americans - myself included - have an extremely positive outlook on life, that can be good or bad, take your pick.
You are the only one who can change yourself, and if you feel helpless about it, try something else until it works. You're at least trying and forcing yourself to function, so that's more than can be said for some people in the same pit.
Just take your time and work through it. You'll eventually mature out and it won't bother you anymore. I'm nearly immune to loss now because of the amount of shit I've gone through. You get used to it eventually.
