Thanks all, I feel so daft because it's like it is staring me in the face, and I even posted a thread before this one about my stress levels! You don't really know until people point it out to you
The stresses I have in my life right now are:
I don't enjoy it and I have a lot of responsibility which I am bearing the brunt of.
We want to move out of our rented house and need to do this by April (the contract runs out then). I like to be proactive, but I am searching for rented houses now when we can't move until April, at which point they'll probably be gone!
Wedding - OH and I aren't even engaged yet but I'm really excited about us getting married and have started looking around at venues etc - the only thing holding it all up is that we're waiting for OH's divorce to be finalised. Therefore, we can't book a registrar, nor a venue, therefore can't do much of anything so why am I trawling through the internet and getting stressed out because I can't find a dress I like?! We're trying to do a wedding on a budget so I am searching the internet for good deals to get an idea of prices, but I seem to have gone all obsessed
My 'problem' is that I get worked up about things, whereas I need to sit back and be patient and trust that things will fall into place when they need to. Instead however, I end up getting stressed out and trying to plan for things when there really is no point. Plus, my sleep has been all over the place this week and it's been taking me an hour or so to fall asleep.
I stopped drinking alcohol late-December last year, and alcohol was the thing I turned to when I was stressed. So perhaps these binges might be a potential new coping-mechanism if I don't get them under control.
