    I'm normally so even handed positive etc etc...


    Apart from drinking too much - what do you do to relieve the stress...

    Also how long do the feelings last?

    Get your blood pressure checked and chill.

    Take it from someone who knows about such things through experience.
    How did this happen? Who's to blame? Well certainly there are those more responsible than others, and they will be held accountable, but again truth be told, if you're looking for the guilty, you need only look into a mirror.

    Get some prossies.

    That is what people seem to do these days if they are stressed.

    I run quite a bit, gets me out the house. Battering the hell out of a drum kit works for me.

    Seriously though it seems you know the cause of your stress. Hypertension is a silent killer, lots of people are stressed without realising it. Are you sure it's not anxiety, panic attack type symptoms you have? Deal with the root cause of the problem and failing that I'd get some proper medical advice on what you can do to relieve the situation.

    Maybe ths is now occupying your mind a lot more than you expected it to? There is an expectation that you 'get over' these things after a while. Just a thought ...

    Sorry to hear of your woes Tingles.

    About four years ago, I started getting severe chest pains and, generally, just didn't feel right.

    Mentioned it to a friend who said it was stress and I just laughed.

    I was going through a tricky relationship at the time which ended not long after.

    All my symptoms cleared up all most straight away.

    First time I experienced stress, certainly to that level, and can now appreciate the effect it can have.

    Thing is, only you will be able to determine what is causing it and it probably won't come to you straight away.

    In the meantime, I'd suggest you schedule regular 'me time' to occupy your mind with more pleasant things.

    e.g. go for a walk in the park/countryside, take a weekend break, go to the cinema, have a massage, start going to the gym etc.

    Best of luck with it and let us know how you get on.

    9 stone!!!

    I thought I was doing well with 2.5 stone in 8 months.

    Seriously, I would lose it without my range of pointless hobbies.
