I've been really stressed out lately. About a year and a half ago, I found out my Dad smokes marijuana. He told us he'd quit, and I believed him, but very recently he got caught and is in a support group inforced by his job. My sister has had 3 major major back operations within the last 3 years, two within a month of each other, and that put me under a lot of stress as well. I feel sad for my Mom because she's not so happy with marriage/life right now, and school has had much impact on this stress as well. I'm afraid all of this stress is going to just bottle up and I'm going to pay for it through a heart attack. Do you think I'm stressed, or just trying to feel sorry for myself? Either way, it's depressing, and I need some ways to forget about everything that's going on. Thanks so much!

maybe you need to find an outlet. a few good ones are: writing, music, meditation, or burying your face in a pillow and screaming for about half an hour. everyone has hardship once in a while, and we all deal in different ways. check out the rest of this forum, as we've got loads of threads about stress. and take care.
