Embarrassed Have I become the pathology?

Ever since I started studying full time,
I always feel tired,
my eyes are red,
put on weight,
i am now getting hypnagogic hallucinations,
palpitations that wake me up at night,
have I become the pathology?

compare it to the pathology textbooks like robbins .... it's rapid

try to go once through it and you'll see rapid improvement in pathophys and pathology itself ... and overall it covers many other subjects.

Only Minor differences here:
palpitations that don't let me sleep in the first place and lapsing straight into REM sleep after that.. nightmarish REM.
