stress monsters

Do you ever get this: 

I get stressed, really stressed, "I think I'm going to have a nervous breakdown" stressed.

I do.  And there are moments when I wish a cookie would ease that giant stress.   I know a kajillion people who use food as a way to cope, I don't tho.  

Other than feeling sick (my poor digestive system), my coping mechinism just isn't where I want it to be.   

When I was a kid I wanted to be Samantha Stephens from Bewitched.  Tells you how I want the things that stress me out to be dealt with.  

Well, I've got to make my way to work so off I go.

See your doc about it. A few weeks back when your BIL was saying pretty much the same thing I told him that there several good medications out there that can help. I've been on Wellbutrin since September.

There's also meditation and exercise. Don't forget the basics. Try to get out of town for the weekend. Even a little day trip can help. The Huntington museum is close by and it's awesome. The museum is really interesting and the grounds are amazing. If you'd like to do that I'd love to go. This Sunday, my treat.

I'm serious.

My stress isn't ongoing and continual. I've done that in the past and yes, did talk to my doc and yes, used medication. I think I posted back and forth to you about it when you were having such a time with your dad's situation.

The museum sounds like a fun thing. Gotta see how things are this weekend tho. Mostly I don't do a lot on the weekends because I don't get much home time in, ya know?

Well, think about it. I'm leaving Sunday open.

I've got to see how Sat plays out. But we can talk about it tomorrow night.
