what are some suggestions with coping with stress?

Re: Stress stress stress

Hey there @Jesssister2001,

 

Stress is no fun. Admittedly, I have a hard time identifying stress in myself, but whenever I feel overwhelmed I find taking a step back and taking time to really think about things helpful. Are there any strategies you've used before that have helped with stress?

 

ReachOut also has a bunch of great articles and things over here on stress including this article with tips for dealing with stress and anxiety. 

 

Is there anything in particular that's causing these feelings tonight?

Re: Stress stress stress

I have so much school assessment tasks to do which are really hard and put a lot of pressure on me

My mum and I are fighting at the moment so we aren’t talking
My uncle had a heart attack yesterday and is in ICU
My other uncle has been diagnosed with cancer and has tumours growing in the top of his spine
Ahhhhhh

Re: Stress stress stress

Hey @Jesssister2001 that sounds like a lot to be dealing with. I'm sorry to hear about both of your uncles, do you have anyone you can share how you're feeling with?

Re: Stress stress stress

well  done on tagging @Jesssister2001 Smiley Happy

 

wow that is heaps going on for you. 

 

i know as stressful as it is with family members being sick, try to remind yourself that its out of your control and all you can do is support them the best you can. i know its probably not helpful me saying that but it is true, the hospital staff are the ones that are more in control and they are both in good hands. 

 

did you want to talk about why you and your mum are fighting?

 

and with school assessments do you think trying to work out a study plan would be helpful?
