    How do you deal with intense stress ? I get pretty quite and internalize , without a doubt I have taken 10 years off of my life by doing this.There is also the smoke and drink.
  2. I kill people.
  3. I read some of De La Mocha and Amazing Grace Player's threads to make me laugh it off.
  4. I haven't had any since I started working for myself 6 years ago. Nowadays, I don't get stress, I give it :D

    I find filling off a few million potential people can be a great way to relive stress. Alternatively having a random argument on TB with one of the regulars can be a bit of a stress relief. Although perhaps some would argue that, metaphorically, they are the same activity. ;)

    I call the problem's immediate supervisor and rip him a new one.
  8. I often internalize too, but that is for sake of sparing my Wife undue stress.

    It's only when it's something I cannot handle alone that I involve her, and we work it out.

    She can always tell when something is up, and respects when I'm being a bit withdrawn... will usually ask if she can help...

    But yeah, it may take a few years off, but it's worth it to me now.

    I am giving some thought to that. :)

    General stress:

    If that's not working,
    -Have a smoke
    -Have a toke

    Most often after I've relieved the initial "AHHHHHH!" I sit down with no distractions and try to take myself out of the situation mentally so I can see it from all angles -- stress is caused by something, and if I can figure out what that is, I can address the problem and relieve the stress in a more complete way.

    How do I deal with intense stress? Usually with an adrenaline rush that allows me to get through the immediate situation and anger that I take out on everyone around me until the source of the stress is dealt with. Essentially, a "fight" response.

    It ain't pretty, but it seems to work (for me at least; the folks around me are usually none too happy about it!)

    Self-medication with mota. Lots of hard housework, trying to keep the stress from my mind. If the stress is too great for me, I stop eating, and then break out in stress-induced dermatitis.

    Good reason to keep stress as low as I can. S.I.D. can last for months.

    Horrible, no? When I worked for The Big, Corporate Builder Of McMansions, I had those hives from November until March of the following year. I hated...*hated*...that job. It was so stressful!!! The only other times I ever had those hives was during my divorce, and during the time I was homeless and on drugs. So...the stress on that job was akin to being homeless while going through a divorce on drugs.

    Here's to never having the Super-Hives ever again, either of us!!!


    Toasting with Tension Tamer tea...
