I want to know if I'm using the idiom "at one's wits end" correctly?

I was at my wit's end trying to figure out how river rejuvenation shapes landforms when, fortunately, I stumbled across a YouTube video which provided a clear explanation.

I am confused about the context in which to use the expression. I thought maybe my problem was not perplexing enough that warranted its use.


That sounds correct. You were getting stressed about your inability to find the information about river rejuvenation (wits end). The situation was resolved when you found a youtube video (no longer at wits end).
