Stress. No, not a stress fracture. Not stress on your cardio vascular system. Not stress on a particular muscle group. I'm talking run of the mill, pull-your-hair-out stress.
How do you deal with it?
Me, I don't deal with it particularly well. Some would say I don't deal with it at all. I tend to let it consume me, leaving me short tempered, frazzled, disconnected and imbued with a severe lack of humor.
And when I say a severe lack of humor - just think bitchy. Seriously. Don't try to make light of whatever is stressing me out, or attempt to distract me. You might wind up in need of a tetanus shot.
I'd elaborate, but I have entirely too much to do that should all have been completed a month ago.
