Does this time of the year cause you any worse stress than normal? How?

Yes it does cause me more stress. Financial stress, for one, due to the holidays and cold weather. Also, because I have kids with birthdays this time of year too. Also, I have my own b'day in December and it's not really a good day for me.So, on top of financial pressure there are some triggers to deal with.

Now this year I have a baby due ( 3 more weeks). Yes that';s a very exciting event but it's still stressful.

That said, I'm aware of what my stressors are. Awareness is the key to change so hopefully I'll cope better than I have in the past.

Mine is everyone offering snacks and food and it stresses me.
