    I say it fuck it. Then I just do whatever I have to regardless of anyone.

    Laugh at it. Find the humor in what's stressin you. Works really good in traffic. What i'll do in traffic is, after i catch on to the pattern of what is stressin everyone on the road out, i'll put on my signal and just leave it on to add to the underlying humor of it all.
    everyone uses every function about evenly. take NE for example. if there are those who don't use it much, then why are there such massive amounts of people constantly flowing through Wallmart with 20 items or less?

    Man purpl. Great FP's think alike..

    I was thinking about this on the ride home tonight..

    I was thinking about something stressful in my life and was seriously laughing hysterically about it the whole way home. Then I got kind of serious and thought- "wow.. I guess when you're stressed beyond relief then the only thing you can do is let go. laugh at it.. go with it. there's nothing else you can do but hope for the best and try to change things!"

    Eat, sleep and whine. A lot. Then pick myself up and keep on going.

    It's not always achievable but most of the times I can laugh it all away. I have been accused of not being serious enough at times, but humour is my medicine.

    Apparently my sanity is pretty tenuous because I have a long list!

    Get enough sleep, journal writing (also proprioceptive writing), go for a Trager Bodywork session, meditate (presently doing Centering Prayer), ground myself, go out in nature, stress defusions (I used to see a practitioner but now I can do them on myself), use the principles of ACT (Acceptance and Compassion Therapy, see this article for example: http://www.actmindfully.com.au/upima...iew_of_ACT.pdf ), e-mail a good friend, exercise (cardio and/or strength training), love up our cats, use the Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT Home - World Center for EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques))...that's all I can think of at the moment.

    I hope you feel saner soon!

    Fixed.

    When I really, really lose it cause of stress I have to disconnect from reality and get lost in my thoughts, relax, purge and break down if I have to, then understand and accept that everything is achievable and start trying to find practical solutions to what's stressing me. Thankfully this process takes hours not days for me.
