Storytime: Everyone: 'You seem kinda tired, are you alright?'
What I want to say: 'No, I'm struggling with an excessive number of fears and anxieties, a society that believes it's alright to yell at me for my feminist agenda when I want to be treated equally, the fact that I always seem to be taking on too much at work to be an interesting person, and I've never been taught how to properly deal with stress because everyone has been conditioned to think that stress can be dealt with by getting on with it so I feel like crying all the time and I'm 99 percent sure that my life is completely out of my control so I can't sleep at night unless I'm completely exhausted.'
What I actually say: 'Must be getting a cold, I think.'
