    Smile You looked stressed out lately,

    You look stressed out lately. You must have a lot on your mind.
    You look worn/tired out ...
    You look exhausted ...


    All of the above are synonymous to me, but I doubt if they are so to you. Your advice? Thanks.

    Default Re: You looked stressed out lately,

    Stressed out - under emotional/psychological pressure
    Worn out - Physically tired
    Exhausted - out of breath
    But, yes they are VERY similar.

    Thanks, oregeezer.
    By the way, you have a very intriguing alias. Does it mean "geezer of ores?"
