Dear Nancy -

Before I post any other response I want to say it is WONDERFUL that you are posting in this thread. One of the first keys to stress release is to document and acknowledge your stress. Get it out into the open.

If you bottle up stress, it only makes it worse. It builds up inside you like a pressure cooker.

So find a way to examine your stress each day. This forum is great, or in a diary, or in a phone call with a friend - whatever you choose. The key is to make that a regular daily activity.

That's the first step to then handling it!
