cycle of stress

So far today, Amy has had minor meltdowns over spilled milk and a missing doll. Evan has the hold-me’s and I may explode if Doug doesn’t bring the car home soon. Based on Amy’s behavior, I need to internalize my anxiety more and express it less. How to implode instead of explode:

Not eating regularly and stress give me headaches and digestive troubles. Lack of time, empty cupboards and general anxiety make it impossible for me to sit down and eat.

not eating = headache
headache = digestive troubles
digestive troubles = can’t eat
can’t eat = headache

Or, Doug could bring the car home and I could get things done (including buying a few groceries).

  1. Hi
    I read your article with interest.
    You are talking about coping. It is my clinical experience that coping styles determine jut how well you cope.
    Some people do this worse than others.
    It is not just the way that they act. It is the way that they think and feel.
    This means they enjoy a poor quality of life.
    It often, if not invariably will mean that they are prone to Anxiety or Depression.
    As a Psychiatrist for 38 years I decided that I wanted to do something to help.
    So I built, what I consider to be, a comprehensive answer. The myRay site is free Online Self-Help.
    As I say, myRay is free so why not take a peek and see if myRay can help you
    With kindest regards

  2. Well hmph. Aparently block quote doesn’t like me here today. Here’s what it told me…

    “Your problems are making it very hard for you to cope.

    I recommend that you do not participate in our programme. I strongly recommend that you speak with your family physician or a psychiatrist.”

    How will I ever handle the rejection?
