I am so glad you are with us Chris. And I do hope you will be a participant and not a lurker because it is those who participate who go forward and achieve their goals faster and even overcome and surpass them.

Sheri :)

Welcome to the team, Chris. The more you participate and explore the site the more support you'll find. I often use the serenity prayer to help me regain balance and find activities that can briefly me focus on something relaxing or fun for a few minutes when I get overwhelmed.

4 Noble Truths

1. Suffering is a part of life
2. Suffering is caused by our attachments and avoidances.
3. Suffering can be ended.
4. Freedom from suffering is possible by following the Eightfold path.

Bigotry disguised as morality is still bigotry just as an outhouse with
marble columns is still an outhouse.

Welcome, Chris. First of all, I am glad you joined us. We all have stress and can even admit that sometimes we deal with it better than other times. Most of us end up overeating and that's why we are here. Feel free to share with us and do read the suggestions. There are many and although they don't all work at the same time, there are lots to choose from. Good luck and, again, welcome!

Hi everyone, I'm Chris. I am glad I came across this team. To say I am stressed out is an understatement. Every day I get to choose which to worry and stress about first----my father who is in the advanced stages of Parkinson's disease or my adult, unemployeed son who is separated from his wife and is living with me and my husband. My son, fortunately, is job-hunting and just graduated from tech school. I am going to read the suggestions that are posted for de-stressing. emoticon
