I don't!

But I'm going for help and I've now got a psychologist and psychiatrist to go and see regularly.

Are you struggling?

Re: how do you guys cope with work stress & daily life stress?

I don't! I've had to cut back my hours at work just so I can function at home and at school... hurts a little money-wise, but I'm not going to have panic attacks daily just so I can have an extra $100 every month.

Re: how do you guys cope with work stress & daily life stress?

I am struggling. stress consumes all of my thoughts. I can't seem to have fun despite that I get out to meet people. I feel stress just driving the car.

Re: how do you guys cope with work stress & daily life stress?

So far, I haven't. A lot of meltdowns due to stress over here. >.>

I can't get anything done about it at the moment, so I'm going to have to find some way to cope until I can.

I don't. Survival from day to day is the name of the game.

I have to force myself to have fun, like playing cars 2 on my wii.

Re: how do you guys cope with work stress & daily life stress?

Listen to music very loudly in my car.
Try and have 1 pyjama day per month with my kids. Get up then lay on sofa, watch something we have recorded, make a nice breakfast, chill out now working, no homework, donīt bother getting dressed.

Try and watch something or talk to someone that makes me laugh. I like to meet a couple of friends for a drink but find that talking about problems with them makes them worse, so we try to talk about stupid funny things.

Take the dogs for a walk in the mountains.

Talk to my Swedish best friend in the UK.
Most important thing, take one day at a time.
