Stress reaction...

Friday, April 04, 2014

So my husband and I decided this tax return we were going to get the step-parent adoption done finally. We have been married almost four years and we have been wanting to get it done for awhile but couldn't afford it. This was very stressful for me because it meant that I had to deal with the sperm donor, even if it was through the lawyer. I maintained my weight through this but it really opened my eyes as to how I deal with stress. The emotional and financial stress of this whole process just made me tired and want to eat, eat, and eat some more. There has to be a better outlet for stress. In this middle of it all my husband was having some health problems stemming from his weight. After awhile it just feels like too much to deal with, and I don't even want to deal with it anymore. I have got to find a better way to cope!! emoticon

    Knowledge is power. Really keep thinking about this and looking at what you can learn from it.

I'm 56 and just recently realized that I grind my teeth and clench my jaw when I'm under work stress. I have been bulldozing through bags of almonds and didn't know why until I realized that the constant chewing motion relieved the physical tension. Time to find a gum I like!!!!

  I'm thinking about (and starting today) exercising to relieve stress. Maybe that could work for you, too. Good Luck!
