    Actually I seldom get outwardly stressed, and I'm not usually aware if I am inwardly, either. The first I know of it, if I am, is if I find that just brushing against a wall or lightly hitting my back against a door or something, really hurts. Because my muscles are all so tense and therefore tender. That happens sometimes, but I still don't really realise what the cause of it is. I can seldom point to something and say "I'm stressed because X is making me feel Y".

    Most stuff just turns into anger, if it's bad stuff, and if that builds up to a point that's unpleasant enough for me to notice or to impinge on how I feel, I just get drunk til I pass out. Then it's gone in the morning. I don't really need to do that more often than say, once every couple of months, though if the stress is particularly bad (like a family member dying and me having to do all the arrangements for example) then I'll probably spend a good couple of weeks mostly either drunk or hungover, until I realise I'm making more than one trip to the bottle bank per week to keep enough room on my desk to see the PC screen past the bottles. Then I figure it's time to kick it, and I stop. Yep, just like that

    You cut it up and eat in in small, reasonable bites.
    ...Then I ducked my head and the lights went out, and two guns blazed in the dark;
    And a woman screamed, and the lights went up, and two men lay stiff and stark...

    When I'm extremely stressed, I usually go into high gear problem solving mode. I feel better once I've gotten some answers.
    To destress, I go for walks, write, sit outside at night or in the rain, listen to music, socialize, and take long baths.

    No. Stress makes me hyperfocus. I'm very calm under high stress. It's also the only time I really do things in an orderly, methodical fashion. The hyperfocus drives me to go without food and sleep sometimes, so I have to make a conscious effort to remember my body.
    There is a thinking stuff from which all things are made, and which, in its original state, permeates, penetrates, and fills the interspaces of the universe.
