    strung out on

    Hello, dear forum users!

    https://youtu.be/vDwzmJpI4io?t=2760
    - The thing is that I'm kind of strung out on the things I'm already doing. So adding another thing... It, like, doesn't...

    I found that this phrase means to be affected by an illegal drug or to be physically weak for the same reason. But it doesn't seem to work with this context.
    Will be glad to hear your ideas on its meaning!

    The person is already taking one thing and is not sure it is a good idea to add to it. (The drug that he or she is taking is probably not a prescription medication.)

    Re: strung out on

    It can be used to mean physically exhausted/depressed/nervous. "I'm kind of strung out from studying to pass the bar."
