Do struggle with stress or feeling overwhelmed at times?  When things change and you can't control them, does it bother you?  How do you deal?  Do you turn to exercise, reading, food, etc?

Food and I talk a lot about it. Part of my OCD. I have obsessive thoughts and if I don't talk about it and through it, it eats at me sending me into panic attacks.

Ugh after my third child I picked up smoking. Horrible choice I know. I don't do it in the house, but still. It not anything im proud of and I try my damnest to keep it secret.

In my head it relieves stress. I have a plan to quit, it has been seven years. Its about Damn time I stop. I have to stop making excuses and do it. Easier said than done:(

Well I have autism so stress can be different for me sometimes. Yeah exercising, crafting, cooking, even doing laundry help. But sometimes I just need to get myself a lot of Coke and sit with my music on in a cafe. I don't know why but Coke helps. When it's very bad I have anxiety meds. They are a lifesaver.

I'm a stress eater. Its why I'm 30 lbs over weight and can't seem to stick to my diet to lose it.

I pray, go on long walks by myself (to think and/or pray), and clean house like superwoman.
