How do you deal with stress?...

I have been under and enormous amount of stress the past month or so. I ussually handle stress with ease it's something that I pride myself on...I would watch other people get angry at nothing or cry and the drop of a hat and I would think "dude, get it together". But now I am on the inside of the glass house and I dont know how to deal. The hardest part for me is that so many things are out of my control. I am in no way a control freak but when I can't do anything about something that is effecting me I just crumble. The 'stressors' that ARE in my control I havn't been dealing with so well either. I have a number of different things in the works right now that I am hoping will all pan out but the waiting game is killing me...I am grouchy, and tired, and mad at everyone, and I cry ALLLLL the time....PLEASE someone help me. What do you do when you are so overwhelmed all you can think to do is lie on the floor for a few years until things just solve themselves?

I usually deal well with stress fairly well until this year...and then eating and gaining 30 pounds came into play...so I'm not sure I'll be any help...
But I do know - Pray lots...keep your faith it'll all work together for your good. Cry when needed - it cleanses the soul. Know that someone ... somewhere is thinking of you and loves you (I think you are amazing and I love ya...and love your family too...tell your mom "Hi-friend" :))

Wanna really know the truth? I say really rude things to my hubs-so then he is as miserable as I am. Then I have no patients for my kiddos and they bomb their tests in school and I turn two-faced and do something nice like let the old man in line go first and tell the kids teachers that I don't know what THEIR problem is. Not really what you would call handeling stress eh? After it's all said and done I apologize to the very people who have always loved and been there for me I always feel guilty. I promise not do it again and realize the hurt I have now caused. In the end I always learn something and have given up trying to "handle" my stress. Like you I'm not a stressfull person but doing something wrong and THEN correcting it is sometimes worth it all. Your normal days will be back.
