College is hard, but being a student-athlete is even harder. I have to perform at 110% in the classroom, on the court, in the weight-room, in on-campus organizations, complete volunteer work, etc. every single day. I always loved the sport of volleyball; it has always been my get away from reality and my main stress reliever. However, playing at the D1 level in college almost makes me hate the sport. At this level, it is literally your job because most are being paid to perform to your best abilities every single day while also having to make sure your teammates are performing and being pushed to their best abilities. It is physically and mentally exhausting, and I get so worked up even when I am ahead with my work in other areas. When I get super stressed out I just start to eat and don't stop eating until I feel like I am going to throw up. It makes me feel horrible and I've tried to fix it but can't find a good solution. Can anyone relate to any of this?
