You can read that article here: http://www.askjohnenglish.com/vocabulary-all/i-am-stuffed
I am stuffed = I am very, very tired
DID YOU KNOW…
I am stuffed also can mean “I am in big trouble”!
HOW CAN I UNDERSTAND THE MEANING IN CONVERSATION?
From the context.
Context means the topic you are talking about.
In my article I talked about working very hard. So from my topic you can see that I mean “tired”
Look at the sentences below.

1) I went to a party last night and now I am stuffed.
2) I didn’t study for the test at all. I think I am stuffed!
3) I was so busy today, I didn’t have time for lunch. I am so stuffed, I am just going to go to bed. Goodnight!
