I am currently reading your book Stressed Out-Girls, and I love it! I am probably one of the busiest and most stressed-out girls in my class. Being senior class president, the head of 2 clubs, varsity tennis captain, and taking eight classes in school (not to mention trying to get into college!) the word "pressure" is nothing new to me. I often take on too much, and find it hard to say "no" when asked to do something. I barely made it through Junior year, because I took on too much and had a huge mental breakdown. My grades went down and I wish I could just start over again. That is why I chose the Disease to Please in Women for my research project. I don't think a lot of girls my age realize how much they try to please their parents, coaches, teachers etc and how much it affects their lives.
