I want to jump off a bridge or die in my sleep almost every single day. I love my family and all but life is so stressful and hectic. I try to fix it but it never gets better. I still trudge on and tomorrow will be just like today and I will survive.

No. That is why I have come back to SOH. I figured you assholes could add some spark to my life.

Due to the health issues of my father in law, the last 8 weeks have been kind of stressful. After 86 years of life we buried him today. He left behind 7 children, 22 grandchildren, and 12 great grandchildren. The world lost a truly great man.

Good one troll? It's a name I made with my dad when I was 6 for a online game.

Good one? Is that a question or a statement? Also, it's *an online, not a online. Don't be mad at me. You told us to take a guess. I did. Looks like I was right.

I just brought my 4th child home from the hospital yesterday on the day of the first snow to find our furnace stopped working. Ummm yeah

11/12/14 11:44 am

Yes, I am on medical leave bc of stress, physical and emotional exhaustion, dealing with the death of my father earlier this year, and caring for my cousin's 3yo while cousin has been deployed for last 15 months. So yes, I've got too much stress.

11/12/14 11:42 am

I am almost always under a lot of stress. I don't have as much at this time since I now have control over my finances. Occasionally I get a minor headache or my chest feels very tight. or I get anxietie attacks.

Right now, definitely. Between work and college, stress is kicking my butt.

I suppose almost everyone has an unhealthy amount of stress considering the damage that stress can do. But it's also necessary, so I don't think there's too much.

11/12/14 9:58 am

Yes, but it's unavoidable right now. We are having to put my mom in a nursing home, and that was a very difficult decision. But I'm starting to feel like there is an end in sight, and I'm getting better at asking for help.

11/12/14 9:48 am

Full time college, no job, no help from family. The only time I'm not stressed is when I'm sleeping

Mostly the stress of raising my son without much help. I just want the best for him.

Just wanting that shows how great of a mother you are

A strong German-American as yourself? Surely you jest! Seriously, I can't imagine the everyday concerns you must feel. Rest assured, your son will be very well adjusted and proud to have you as his mom.

I might have an unhealthy amount of unstress in my life. I miss the adrenaline surge, runaway heart rate, and feeling of borderline panic a few times a day. I think people might need that to knock the plaque loose, at least every now and then.

I probably have an unhealthy amount of leisure...

When a tiny bit of momentary stress comes my way, I crumble to dust.

Right now yes!! Ending one job and starting another, lots of drama in personal relationships, and allergies keeping me sick!

Been having a lot of stress in my life lately that I discovered a strand of gray hair pop out a few months ago. Between my schoolwork and my mom's former friend coastantly looking watching us enough is enough

Hard to say, given my anxiety disorder.
I stay clear of anything stressful but that doesn't mean I'm not stressed.

Do you take anything for it?

KAnne Atlantic City, NJ
11/12/14 10:47 am

Yes, it's well managed. I'm currently at 25mg of Lexapro and 25mg of Vistaril. I used to take Abilify. I also go to therapy. I might need a change in meds though because my depression is bad despite maximum efforts.

j0p Pittsburgh
11/12/14 10:52 am

I have xanax, Effexor, been on abolify...didn't like it

Have been on a lot but always trying to find the best combo

KAnne Atlantic City, NJ
11/12/14 2:43 pm

I've been on Lexapro for so long (about 5 years) that I'm scared to change it. But I'm sure my psychiatrist and I can find a new combination.

We are, but in a very different, inconvenient, and costly way. But, there's no choice, so it is what it is. We'll get through it. We're just in a world of suck for the next couple months is all. I actually expect positive results in the end though.
