to the team, both of you.
I hope you find whatever help you need, and you'll find loads of support too.
Amaela5 - there are different ways to approach the stress problem.
One is to identify your stress triggers, then develop ways to deal with them.
Another is to identify some goals which you believe will reduce your stress levels in the long term - then break those goals down to medium term, then to short term.
A third method would be to try out various "anti-stress" measures, and practice some of these until your stress is reduced enough for you to then identify the measure causes and create your own way to deal with it/them.
Whichever way you decide to go, whether it's one of these or something else entirely - make sure to keep reporting in, either to yourself (in a journal, here or a real-life one) or to this site, or in a blog .
And remember, too - you don't need to do this challenge in 4 weeks - you can take the time you need. So you don't have to push yourself from week 1 onto week 2 until you feel ready for the next steps.
Baby steps in everything - it may take longer to start off with, but you're more likely to stick with it and get results.
AmandaDHah - you are so fortunate to have a good husband who will listen and be there for you.
But please also remember that you have friends here on SP and in the Stress Busting team, and not get stressed that your unloading on DH all the time
