I am extremely concerened about physical health issues as a result of the stress of my divorce. Whenever I read a post where someone points to the divorce as a precursor or cause of a significant health problem, I get even more stressed! I really could use some discussion here about how to stay healthy thru a divorce, some reminders about why it is a good idea to reduce stress, stuff like that. I am often afraid to go to sleep, not just cuz of nightmares but cuz I am afraid of becoming sick in the night and being alone. I know this is all a symptom of stress. But I am not doing enuf to relieve my stress in healthy ways. Just throwing this out there on a Saturday morning at the start of another long 4-day weekend where I will be all alone. Unless I go to the grocery store or something, lol.
