Do you feel there is a difference in the way women handle stress vs. the way women handle stress? Please explain. :)

I don't know, I think everyone handles it differently. I think it has more to do with your personality than your gender. My husband and I handle it about the same way - we try to do it all, then eventually burn out.

I handle stress differently than my dh... I get the feeling to walk away, leave the situation, go outside and be surrounded by new scenery. My dh, depending on the thing that's caused stress, usually tries to deal with it and solve it before moving on to something new. The things that cause him most stress are projects around the house. Oh, and crowds - and in that situation he's much like me and needs to walk away.
