Looking for a word

In the interest of time for NaNo, I am using some modern slang in my story but I will need more appropriate verbiage when I hit the editing stage.

I have two teenage boys (17 years old) being angstie about life sucking. In Ben's case, his life really is sucking right now.

How would I phrase "My life sucks" in a more medieval sounding way since "sucks" is modern slang or do you think it is okay to leave something like that?  Would it bother you if your reading a fantasy novel and teenagers broke out into "my life sucks"?

What about "yeah" and "hey"?
