I really don't know what to do about reducing stress. But, aside from getting exercise, just what can I do to try to reduce the amount of stress in my life? (In some ways, there's probably not much point in posting about it here, because 4 out of 5 posts get no responses anyway, so maybe I should ask on Facebook.)
What I really want to do is spend more time around supportive people so I feel safe and less isolated and I can drop my guard more. I did that tonight, and of course every evening with my housemate is pretty good. :-) And things do seem to have calmed down a bit. But really, I must, must, must dial down the stress even more. Having work give me shit about going to the doctor does NOT help, though. Here's hoping that doesn't happen ever again.
