A combination of the above
I have a drink occasionally when I'm stressed but the best thing I've found is sex. Nothing deactivates stress like sex can.
I would chat with her when I'm feeling particularly snarky, but I wouldn't ever call her on the phone.
I've suffered sporadically from pretty severe anxiety disorder for at least 20 years.
I don't know how I deal with stress.
I guess I've been fortunate enough or canny enough to surround myself with people who shelter me from the worst of it.
Really, I rely very heavily on family members to carry me when the going gets rough.
Is it fair to them? Not really.
But I guess I contribute other things to the family besides strength and stability in times of crisis.
Different people bring different things to the table.
I stare vacuously into space until the voices stop... : D
Video gaming, FPS games especially.
Jackboots always come in matched pairs, a left boot and a right boot.
if i can, i'll take the "ignore it and it'll go away" stance or i lock myself up with really loud music and a good book
"To waste, to destroy, our natural resources, to skin and exhaust the land instead of using it so as to increase its usefulness, will result in undermining in the days of our children the very prosperity which we ought by rights to hand down to them."~ Theodore Roosevelt (Message to Congress, Dec. 3, 1907)
I find myself grinding my teeth. A lot. Guess that's why God invented the Night Guard.
Also, escapism via the internet or reading.

Gestures, in love, are incomparably more attractive, effective and valuable than words.
