I'm in the middle of an "I can't possibly take or do any more of anything" crisis.

My solution? I just shut down. Will not do anything useful to get myself out of the quandary. As a student, I hit this wall every midterm, when I had so much to do, I didn't know where to start. So, instead, I'd lay down after dinner, read books in bed, and cry.

How do you get over anxiety paralysis?

Today, I have to grade papers, present to my dean and the Board of Directors, and run 4 hours of class. (Not to mention, shower, clean up the litter boxes, take out the trash, try to eat food at some point, etc.).
