How well do you cope with stress, and how stressful is your life?
Posted 8/30/15 , edited 8/30/15
How stressful is your life, why is it so stressful, and whar ways have your developed to cope with life's stressors?

I'm just a senior in HS but due to childhood trauma I have PTSD and related stressors, depression, anxiety, panic attacks, etc, but enough of me, what about youuuu?

Be honest and explain in great detail! Dont be shy!

Alcohol.
And then remember that being drunk is actually kinda boring and go to bed.
So really I stay stressed forever.

My life is not that stressful now, aside from trying to get my mystery medical condition figured out. I might give up on it soon.

I listen to happy music when I'm stressed. I might also sit outside or lay on the grass if it's nice out.

My life is pretty stressful, but it won't be as much when I finally cut my parents out of my life. I'm spacey due to my stress, which is how I cope.

It feels super stressful for multiple reasons that I feel would be too much to write here.

My grandpapa died a few weeks ago, school started, a friend of mine went missing, no money, mom is stressed out for having no money, anxiety attacks & PTSD stuff.

That's pretty much what's stressing me out atm

I don't have really anything to cope with it besides video games & sleeping I guess. lol

I get stressed out quite a bit and i usually just work out. It feels great to release all your bottled up rage and stress when you lift weights. In my opinion if all people did that there would be way less angry and stressed out people.

Also i love PrinceJudar's gifs. They always seem to go perfectly with what she's saying lol.

I'm very chill on the outside but I'm constantly in a state of panic on the inside.

My life has been pretty stressful as of late. Half a year ago I relocated back to the USA after living abroad working for 4 year, which was quite the change. I started work at a call center, which can be pretty stressful. I deal with a lot of wonderful people, but in that same breath I also deal with a lot of people who feel they are entitled to free things just by being a customer. They don't care about who they're yelling at or belittling and they are only thinking of themselves. On top of that I'm attending grad school classes online so I hopefully can have a brighter future than angry customers.

I cope with games, movies, television, exercise--especially kendo--and sometimes the occasional drink. I don't make it a habit for me though because I have no desire to be an alcoholic.

I have stressors and sometimes I wonder whether or not I'm depressed because I can go days and days without having any desire to see anybody. I am easily triggered by suicidal topics (due to a friend committing suicide about 5 years ago) and I tend to have an issue with trust due to manipulative and emotionally abusive past relationships as well as being attacked (back in high school some neighborhood boys came at me with a knife) as well as dealing with the sexual molestation that occurred when I was a child.

In most cases I just deal with it by forcing myself to ignore it. I do things to detract myself, as I stated above. I'm honest about what happened, of course, but not something I talk much about unless the subject comes up.
