Sometimes keeping control is hard.

I want to be strong. Iโ€™m usually strong. But sometimes I just want to give up. But I know it wonโ€™t take me anywhere to quit and I know breaking down isnโ€™t going to benefit me in any way. So I keep pushing on. Even though I donโ€™t want to.

I think that's everyone. Anything worth having is usually a lot of work to get. Heck even just making it to the end of the day on a crappy job takes a lot of resolve.

Control those things you can control, which basically is you, and let go of those things (mostly others around you) that you can not.

I've been drawing from my reservoir for a very long time. I think it's nearly empty.

Soco: The thing I"m struggling to control is my mental stability. Myself.

I'm feeling a little bit better today. But still feel that break on the horizon.

Maybe the stress is a control related issue - that increasing your efforts to maintain control (over what and how detailed it becomes), results in mental stress.
Learn to let go.....?

It would be difficult to diagnose you on this forum. Have you been to a psychologist? I believe you have talked yourself into a mild depressive state. A mild sedative for a short period of time might help. It would need to be monitored so it doesn't become addictive. You might consider a holistic doctor to suggest changes in your diet too. A simple chemical imbalance may just be the culprit too. Think outside the box.
