It's been quiet here lately, so I thought I'd take a second to ask how you're doing.

Yes. I'm usually easy going but when I've had enough I explode.

(((Hug))) I can understand both the looking forward to their visit and the stress that you're feeling about them coming. Perhaps now that she's raising her own child, she'll see why you had rules and things like that and will have changed a bit? One can hope anyway.

I too hold on to things. When I explode it's awful. Luckily, since my divorce, I haven't felt the need to hold on/internalize things like that anymore. Hmm.... lol

Oh my goodness. :( I am so sorry for yours & your boyfriend's losses. My heart just breaks for him. I can imagine the amount of stress that you're both undergoing has increased 100% recently.

I know the other members here have great ideas for reducing stress, but you might also think about heading over to our Migraines & Headaches message board for tips on dealing with that: http://forums.ivillage.com/t5/Migraines-Headaches/ct-p/iv-bhheadaches?ice=iv:mb:msg:as
