    Re: Stress

    Depends on the type of stress.

    I was unfortunate enough to inherit my father's outrageous anxiety; I've learned to deal with it for the most part, but generally when I get into an acutely stressful situation (i.e. some kind of crisis) I'll initially panic for a second or stress out so much that I can't think about anything else or function, then I'll be able to get my head into it and consciously push it aside to some extent, at which point I'll be fine for the most part.

    I meditate a lot, which has really helped me clear my mind on command or adjust my focus precisely, and I've done enough over the years and read enough where I think I have a pretty good handle on controlling my feelings, including the anxiety.

    Re: Stress

    heh... seems most people's definition of stress and my definition of stress are two entirely different things.

    stress is force exerted over an area
    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God

    Re: Stress

    For the most part, I step away from the situation and look at everything objectively in order formulate a plan of "attack" to deal with whatever it is that stresses me out. This could be considered a "fight" response, but it's rarely aggressive.

    Once I have a plan of attack in place, I get started on it. I find that doing something about it is far less stressful than dwelling upon it.

    In cases where the stressor cannot be "dealt with", I find some way to release the frustration I feel in a more productive manner than internalizing them. (i.e. hitting a heavy bag like Goshin does or making jokes on an internet forum )

    Re: Stress

    It all depends.

    Not all stress is the same.

    So I handle different stresses in different ways,...

    I'm sure everyone else does this too.

    Be careful, or you'll end up like my brother here:

    Re: Stress

    Stress is the wrong term. These responses apply to being attacked (Fight, flight, etc.).

    I would fight, based upon history.
