    I have had some really bad depression because i was abandoned by my love, stress from school, mistreated by my friends, and family problems. I have had liver hemmorage/failure,seizures, and breathing problems. A few months before all my drama happened I was happy and healthy. I have bottled everything up and the more intense it gets the more ill i get. And I can’t move on unless I express my anger towards the people that hurt me. What must I do?

    Can someone please, help me with this, English is my second language and i would appreciate it greatly.

    One of the topics include “professional concerns”, which center around the idea that a nonprofessional in stress management undertake clients to reduce their stress.

    That only experienced counselors or health professionals should go into stress management services.

    I have noticed that the only time my face is completely acne free is when I am on vacation. So I related my acne to stress because other then that I do not eat junk food, drink sodas, I excise enough and get enough sleep. So how can I reduce stress without doing yoga or taking walks? How can I reduce stress while I’m in school doing homework etc.?

    I do not feel stressed but I guess my body begs to differ.
    Btw I am in high school.

    I’m going into Highschool this year, and a lot of stress is being put on planning for our futures. At the moment, I am planning on majoring in Psychology or something similar in college, and I was wondering what sort of jobs would be available for someone with a degree in that field.

    Obviously, a psychologist is an option. But what about things that aren’t normally associated with Psychology? For instance, could one become a teacher with a Psy. Degree? If you don’t mind, could people share with the the different fields one could enter with a decent (4-8 year) Psychology degree?

    Also, are there other majors similar to psychology?

    Please and thank you, much love, people!

    I am constantly stressed, overwhelmed, scared of death, my future, planes, taking chances and embarrassment, nausea, cold/sweaty hands, weight gain, sharp pains in chest and stomach, ringing in ear, nightmares, and body aches. My heart has been skipping a beat a lot lately and I’ve been depressed too. I guess I never really thought about having it because I never paid attention to it, but a lot of things have been happening to me now that I am under an immense amount of stress.

    We looked online at the various providers. Each one has some “specialties” listed. My friend is needs help with stress management, and she has a lot of resentment towards her mother and she thinks this is affecting her relationship with her husband. We also thinkshe may have depression/be depressed because she cries often out of nowhere and she can’t sleep, lack of appetite and there have been a lot of things going on in her family. She is always questioning and second-guessing herself. Sometimes she will be fine and will start a fight or look sad for no reason, but the mood swings are not as severe to be bi-polar.
    The specialties listed are : Cognitive therapy, solution based counseling, women’s issues, family, marital, anxiety disorders, affective disorders, anger management, behavio modification. I am trying to help her but we are so confused as to what she needs! Please advise. Thanks.

    I am by nature a very creative and unorganized person. I have had some problems for the last several years to boot including divorce and other major life changes and in short my life is pretty much out of whack. If you have a mountain of responsibilities to face how do you do it? I try doing one thing at a time which works but in the mean time, everything else is off balance. If I try to do everything at once (trying to lose weight for health reasons, raise kids, deal with divorce related court stuff, hold a full-time job and about a million other things) it all falls apart. How do people get it so together?

    1. Trace the path of a drop of blood from the time it enters the vena cava until it reaches your little finger. Be sure to include the types of blood vessels involved.

    2. List the different types of CVD. Compare and contrast their symptoms, risk factors, prevention, and treatment.

    3. What are the major indicators that CVD poses a particularly significant risk to people of your age? To the elderly? To people from selected minority groups?

    4. Discuss the role that exercise, stress management, dietary changes, medical checkups, sodium reduction, and other factors can play in reducing risk for CVD. What role may chronic infections play in CVD risk?

    5. Discuss why age is such an important factor in women’s risk for CVD. What can be done to decrease women’s risk in later life?

    6. Describe some of the diagnostic and treatment alternatives for CVD. If you had a heart attack today, which treatment would you prefer? Explain why.

    I know I sound maybe a bit insane seeing as I am 16 years old and I’m stressed out with my life. I am struggling to not only get through high school, dealing with all the crap that people can say and do about you, the teachers and parents expectations of you to succeed and do well while I’m failing one of my courses-math to be exact. I’m not perfect, well no one is for that matter, and I know failure is a part of life but I have so much pressure to be as successful as my older brother and sister (My brother is now a doctor and my sister is graduating as a nurse and have done honors in high school and university), I have no idea what to do with my life after high school (if I even manage to get through!), I’m dealing with so much bull shit from my friends and people that aren’t my friends, and there are days where I’ll wake up hating myself, fearing the day (especially on days where I have big exams because I have huge test anxiety), have my family make me feel bad about pity things like my grades and some nights I can’t sleep, I’ll cry myself to sleep, I feel lonely even though I have close friends, feel extremely overwhelmed and stressed and there are some nights before a big exams I’ll have panic attacks and feel I’m about to die with all this stress. I must have gotten my poor coping skills with my stress from my dad because he’s pretty bad too! I don’t think I’m the only one dealing with pressure and bullshit from this world and so far the only thing I’ve tried is listening to music and yoga and for me it only works temporarily. I have a big passion for rock, metal, and rap music, bands like Three Days Grace, Paramore, Hollywood Undead, Evanescence, Eminem, Linkin Park, Bring Me the Horizon, Bullet for my Valentine, etc (I could go all day on music, my passion is music!:D) and yoga is a nice calming workout but it doesn’t really help me get through each day without freaking out about my marks, or what people say and do to you (I’ve been bullied alot lately, more cyberbullying then physical and as well as gossiping/rumors,) and more importantly the huge pressure I put on myself and from my family. I know other people can cope better than others in times of stress and anxiety but I can’t!! If anyone has any good pointers or suggestions that have worked for them than please share them!! Thank you!!:D (I’m too young to be worrying about life!:P I should be partying (aha if I ever get invited to those big parties, XD) and sometimes hanging with my friends makes me more stressed out, I definitely need to find a way to RELAX. AH!:P

    I get regular stress related headaches, usually after becoming annoyed, irritated or angry. Particularly after becoming angry I suffer from headaches for several weeks later.

    I always have the headaches on one side of the skull, and by touch I can feel the surface of this side of my scalp is irregular, while the other side is smooth.

    My GP referred me for brain scan as I was concerned about possible issues within my brain, but it checked out ok. The scans however do show abnormal development on one side, and this side correlates with the headaches. The doctor said there is nothing to worry about, but he said to try to address mental health issues, such as avoiding anxiety. I felt at times hopeless and had suicidal thoughts. However, my life is very good overall, I am a very lucky person. My health, job, finances and family are all good. But on the other hand, in most parts of my life there are minor issues which keep annoying me, such as disruption to my sleep, disrespectful colleagues, occasional conflict etc.. There are times when these annoyances accumulate to create an overall problem. There are also particular events which trigger very high anxiety such as direct conflict.

    So my feeling is that I should do something about anger management, and I’ve decided to try a different strategy in responding to conflicts with my wife. I’ve told my wife, instead of fighting with her when I am angry, I will go outside for a walk. I will let her know I’m not happy, and I will remove myself from the situation in order to reduce the level of conflict escalation. This is to minimise the impacts on myself of my own anger. She agrees to this idea, she said its good for me to go out for a walk when these situations arise.

    I don’t want to sound like a whiney teenager, but I’m afraid that is what this may turn in to. I’ve been handling a lot of stress for a while and it’s taken it’s toll on sleep, my frequent headaches have returned, and I’m almost always sick to my stomach. I’m a huge computer nerd and a sophomore (10th grade) in high school. Like I said in one of my previous questions, I’ve been with the same girlfriend for 3 years but like a different girl even more, who also likes me back. Rather than make a mature decision and dump my girlfriend or avoid the other girl, I have done neither and I guess I’m stringing them both along, I know, I’m a horrible person. Most of my friends are nerds as well, and we’re all pretty arrogant and competitive, but they are arrogant to the point where they make me feel like unwanted crap regularly. I’m also the only thing that stands between my divorced parents entering another court battle. I’m addicted to caffeine and hacking, and I obsess about my grades. I have been diagnosed with mild OCD and ADHD and I’m pretty shy and insecure. I am extremely sentimental to the point of depression. I assume these are all causes of my stress and I need advice on how to deal with it before I have a heart attack.

    Hi there.

    Our classroom task is to make a 15 min. video presentation that will tackle stress management among college students.

    Do you have any suggestions on how we can make it as creative yet as informative as possible? Please elaborate.

    I have developed some not exactly healthy methods to deal with stress, including smoking. I mention it because needing to have a smoke is one of the biggest indicator I’m under too much stress.
    Work, money, eating right, difficult people, traffic, things breaking down around the house, negative news, etc…
    I don’t necessarily want to be able to handle more stress.
    I’ve started a journal where I have noted the things that I find stressful, and have rated them according to how stressful they are and how much control I have over them.
    I am open to any answers, even pollyanna & (non-fundie) religious ones.
    I’m looking for advice on what the path towards better stress management really entails. Any good books you could suggest, too.
    Thank you in advance.

    Adequate sleep
    Stress management
    Healthy diet
    Daily exercise
    Proper personal care (i.e. brushing teeth, putting on sunscreen, etc)

    These are 5 elements of a healthy lifestyle. I feel like many new parents neglect these, or at least some of them and as a result, their health suffers. I don’t want that to happen to me.

    The proper personal care really shouldn’t be hard to keep. Brushing teeth twice a day, flossing, showering, skin care and the like really shouldn’t be an issue. Healthy eating also shouldn’t be too much of a problem, since we won’t be eating out as much. Thus, my focus will be on the other 3.

    Adequate sleep: I get cranky, groggy, and inattentive if I have had less than 7 or 7.5 hours of sleep. If I get less than 7 hours of sleep, I consider that severe sleep deprivation, and that is associated with reduced alertness, and reduced productivity, and most importantly, it does NOT feel good. That is not fair to my employer, and it certainly isn’t fair to myself. Moreover, even mild sleep deprivation can cause weight gain, which I don’t want.

    Stress management: I’m sure there will be more demands on me, so it is important that I include time to de-stress. I am an avid football fan, so I am hoping to continue watching football every Sunday (watching football doesn’t have to entail sitting and drinking beer – it could entail keeping the game on in the background while doing housework, and if I hear the commentators get excited, I turn my attention to the game).

    Daily exercise: I want to maintain and hopefully bolster my muscle mass while not gaining body fat. I am in my early 30s, and I am not far from the age where this will become a problem, so it is more important than ever for me to continue weight lifting 3 times per week. On my non-lifting days, I will limit activities to going for a 4 mile run, or playing recreational sports.

    Until recently, people kept telling me how responsible I am. “It’s good that you’re eating healthy, exercising, and going to bed on time while the others are out partying, eating crap, and living sedentary lifestyles”. Now they are calling me selfish. To me that is just plain retarded. Since when is living a healthy lifestyle SELFISH? Are they seriously telling me to sacrifice my health??

    My BF recently lost his job.
    He says that he was under tremendous stress and hence strayed. He hired a hooker for the night. She even gave him a BJ.
    Now he says he is sorry. He will learn stress management. I like him but I am getting confused. Should I forgive him? Surely losing a job is a cause of stress.
    Will he stray again?

I already have a very sensitive stomach, I cannot eat much dairy at all anymore especially because of this, and I just don’t know how to deal with this.

    I’m 16, a guy done with puberty and all of that. Recently this week I have been getting very stressed over little things. I haven’t had a problem with stress for months, not since maybe november. Anyway, a few weeks ago I noticed that I began to gain a lot of weight. I’m not sure what is causing all of it, it’s not puberty, all the tests confirm i’ve been done for well over a year btw. But I read today that stress causes weight gain, only thing is the weight gain started about two weeks before the stress. I haven’t eaten any differently (actually i’ve been eating healthier) so I can’t just not be taking care of myself. I’m not really sure what’s up, but I’ve been watching what I eat and all that stuff and I’ve never had to do that before. I truly think that the stress and weight gain are somewhat related, but to the extent I’m not sure.

    I generally have acne-free skin, but for the past few months I’ve been really stressing out. The stress is unavoidable at the moment. This is making me break out and causing my skin to become a lot more oily. I wash my face and apply astringent right when I wake up and before I go to bed, I’ve tried an acne spot gel..but it’s not being of much help.

Its every night, whem im laying down or when my head is in a certain position. sometimes it happens when im standing also but rarely. I also noticed that when im very stressed it happens even more. i have been having this little chest pains to add to it but these are rare also. i went to my pcp and they advised me to get a ct scan although im scared of that tunnel that is why i havent done it yet. she prescribed tylenol but truthly that doesnt help much. i still feel it and every night and is hard for me to sleep right away because of it. is very annoying.

    I work in a pretty stressful job and I think I’m starting to bring that stress home. So I want to get some help with it. My insurance covers mental health type visits, but there’s a couple of different categories such as: Licensed professional counselor, psychiatrist, or a psychologist. I know one of these can prescribe drugs, which I don’t think I need. I think I’m just looking for talk therapy—someone to help me figure out this whole stress thing.

    In todays society, young children are under more stress and pressure due to the higher social and educational demands on them.

    Hi, I’m a 15 year old girl. I’ve been going through a lot of stress lately. I can’t talk about it very much with my family. My school counselor isn’t very nice(she made fun of me once in front of the class and made me stay after the class, after it she apologized but I felt really upset, she walked out of the class and I burst into tears), people I know in school that go to her also told me that after going to her they just feel more depressed, so there is no point for me in going to her. I also don’t really have anyone I could trust. I started having suicidal thoughts and I can’t focus on studding in school. I also started having face twitches and it’s embarrassing. I get a lot of headaches. People mock me for my accent so I can’t really stand up for myself. I don’t want to go to a psychologist or therapist because I don’t want my family to know. My father is sick, this is also putting a lot of pressure on me, once he almost passed away in hospital. Is there anything I can do to get rid of all the stress??

    A professor was giving a lecture to his student on stress management.

    He began his class by holding up a glass with some water in it. He held it up for all to see & asked the students: “How much do you think this glass weighs?”

    “50gms!” …. “100gms!” …..”125gms” ..the students answered.

    “I really don’t know unless I weigh it,” said the professor, “but, my question is: What would happen if I held it up like this for a few minutes?”

    “Nothing” …..the students said.

    “Ok what would happen if I held it up like this for an hour?”, the professor asked.

    “Your arm would begin to ache”, said one of the student.

    “You’re right, now what would happen if I held it for a day?”

    “Your arm could go numb, you might have severe muscle stress & paralysis and have to go to hospital for sure!”, ventured another student and all the students laughed.

    “Very good. But during all this, did the weight of the glass change?”, asked the professor.

    “No” was the answer.

    “Then what caused the arm ache and the muscle stress?”

    The students were puzzled.

    “What should I do now to come out of pain?”, asked professor again.

    “Put the glass down!”, said one of the students.

    “Exactly!”, said the professor.

    Life’s problems are something like this:
    Hold it for a few minutes in your head and they seem okay.
    Think of them for a long time, and they begin to ache.
    Hold it even longer, and they begin to paralyze you.

    It’s important to think of the challenges or problems in your life, but EVEN MORE IMPORTANT is to “PUT THEM DOWN” at the end of every day before you go to sleep.

    That way, you are not stressed, you wake up every day fresh and strong, and can handle any issue, any new challenges that comes your way!

    Even though Summer is here, my Summer sucks still. I work 9 to 5 Monday to Friday. How can I get time to make new friends this Summer in South New Jersey and make new friends to have group so I can out there on trips and enjoy Summer Fun? How do I have time to Read a book, Tae Bo exercises, stretching exercises, Guitar Practice, Creative Writing I want to try, Summer Fun, and other stuff?

    My older sister is a fantastic person but when it comes to dealing with stress she just can’t handle it. She has a tendency to freak out and lash out on other people when put in pressuring situations. Way after the fact she sometimes apologizes. But I feel like she gets way too freaked out over minor issues

    (One of many) Example: We were at a bookstore and she couldn’t decide what book she wanted (she had a limit) she ended up getting angry my mom and I and then breaking down crying later when we left the store. In the end she left with no books at all.

    This is a frequent problem and I have offered therapy up as a solution more than once. However my sister is an extremely prideful person and prefers to deal with her own issues herself. I know I can’t force someone who doesn’t want help.

    I’m at loss of what to do. Is there anything I can do to help my sister with this? And what do you suggest I can do about it to deal with it? (Because it gets to me)

    I joined the military got hazed REALLY REALLY REALLY badly. Even though its not going on now I have trouble relaxing. A lot of people think that I am on drugs but its just stress from being in the workplace. I feel like my body just switches into survival mode and I cant get out of it. It dosent matter what I do. If I am driving and someone cuts me off then my body will just flip like that and Its hard for me to get out of it. Before being in the military I was one of the most laid back people ever. Which is why I got hazed by the way. Can have any nonchalant sailors in the fleet. Hahah FTN.

    I am working 2 jobs now, both of which involve alot of physical work
    (in other words minimal sitting at a computer, lots of being on my feet carrying heavy stuff around or helping a customer)
    They are good jobs, but between them I only get one day off, sometimes none at all
    and I’m used to a nice even M-F with the weekends off. Now my “weekend” is in the middle of the week
    and I’m also physically exhausted from early morning and long days.
    I feel like my freedom is gone.
    I feel depressed at times, especially when there’s still a long week ahead.
    is there a good book for a 20-something who’s working too hard
    and needs advice on how to relax, be optimistic, and make time for important stuff
    like her fiancee and her various responsibilities?
