1. Describes what happens when a person freaks out, cracks, loses control of themselves. Life - reality at large- becomes overwhelming. They just can't deal with it all. The person may act out, withdraw, become emotional, run, etc...
"I was sick and on this one day I had an exam, an essay due, a news print deadline, multiple other commitments, 3 people hogging my limited time, others screwing with my head plus, life outside of college was spiraling out of control. I became overwhelmed and went into meltdown." --If meltdown happens to you or someone you know, just remember; It's not the nicest thing, but it happens. Step back & regroup. That's all you can do.
