Overwhelm is a temporary state. To help you move through it I recommend leaving the environment that is overwhelming you. Find a nice spot to think, (I recommend a coffee shop, park or your local library). Relax and breathe, if you know how to deep breathe, this is the time to use those skills.
Make a list of what is causing you overwhelm. Take your list and review what the issues really are. Think about what small things you can do to start to effect a change. Who can help you, look around you for someone who is not judgmental to assist you. speak talk with someone.
Know that everyone gets overwhelmed at some point, you are not alone and overwhelm does subside. Chin up! I would love to hear about your successes!
