I'm really on edge.
신경이 곤두서 있어요.

John : Man! I'm really on edge today!
May : You seem a little stressed. What's eating you?
John : I have too many projects due by the end of this week. I don't know if I can get all of them done.
May : Deadlines always drive me crazy too. Don't worry John. You'll get them done on time. You always do.
John : I guess you're right but the stress is really starting to wear me down.
Maybe I need to find a new job.
May : Well, if it is starting to affect you then, yes, maybe you should find another job.
