Describe what you do to alleviate stress.
This is an interesting one to come up lately. I've had an immense amount of stress the past few days. I have done a pretty good job holding it in and trying to deal with it, however, I knew a release was coming. Last night, I spent the evening with Dave, he made me chicken fajitas. (So yummy) and I started drinking, pretty early.
Then, I started just doing weird things. Asking him questions, becoming defensive on his answers, just a no win situation all the way around. I finally had to stop myself... none of this had to do with him.. it had to do everything with me. My own personal stresses were consuming not only myself, but he and I.
So there were tears, more than I had wanted him to see. However, it was necessary, I needed to release some type of emotion, or I was going to combust. He and I talked... and drank, and laughed, and got to bed REALLY late.. and it has helped so much.
My stress alleviation... Talking, emotional release and sometimes just a deep breath. Being with my kids and Dave for the escape... that is nice as well.
