Coping with Stress
I've been doing really well lately. After, I don't know, 4 years? of almost completely isolating myself I was sort of forced to come out of my shell and it turns out, it isn't so bad. In fact, many good things have come out of it.
Here's the thing though, stress tends to trigger all sorts of craziness in me (pretty much complete mayhem, panic etc). After having a pretty good day yesterday I came home to find out that my sister has been diagnosed with cancer (I knew this was a possibility, even had a dream about it last week but had convinced myself that my worries were just part of my general craziness). This is a legitimately anxiety producing and stressful occurrence and I'm not sure I can handle it right now.
Anyone have any tips on how to handle stress (or just want to talk me down from my rapidly spiraling out of control thoughts?)
