    I'd had it.

    Dear teachers,

    There is a brief excerpt from an English lesson which I have found in the Internet recently, namely:

    “I was just about ready to go to the gym when for some reason I dealed to log on my msn messenger and start up a few useless conversations.
    An hour flew by and it was now almost 1:00.
    I’d had it.
    I was sick of all the procrastinating.
    I got off msn, grabbed a protein shake and headed off to the gym.”
    Would you be kind enough to tell me whether the expression in bold really is equivalent to the enumerated bellow expressions?

    1. I was sick of it.
    2. I was sick and tired of hearing (doing) it.
    3. I have had enough of it.
    4. I got tired.
    5. I was tired.
    6. I grew tired.
    7. I got bored with it.
    8. I got fed up with it.
    9. I couldn’t take it anymore.
    10. I couldn’t stand it any longer.
    11. I needed something to change.

    Thank you for your efforts.

    Regards,

    V.

    Re: I'd had it.

    "I've had it" means "I've had enough", or simply the exclamation "enough!". All your paraphrases may work, in context.
