What's causing stress in your life right now (3 Nov. 2011)?

Asked by Hawaii_Jake (33030points) November 3rd, 2011

I’m stressed because my desktop computer that I love has broken for the second time in a week! I’m grateful that it’s still under warranty which includes on-site repairs by a technician. I don’t have to send it away anywhere.

What’s got you stressed out today?

Schoolwork. Omg, the school work. And then, talking to the school about how to go about various things, which involves actually talking to the admins, who are not really nice people (The System has made them bitter, cranky, and unhelpful).

It is far easier to mention what is NOT causing stress in my life:

Sleeping, though that is very limited and fleeting.
The fact that my s/o is in Hawaii surfing- the fact that he is happy is awesome.
My evening glass of wine (one)

I am not complaining. Life is what it is right now. I am good.

Auditions. I’ve had 6 in the past few days. There are more to come. There is too much on the line. I’m going crazy.

My own damn self!


I am going on a vacation in a few days, and I’m not ready for it yet——haven’t packed, haven’t tidied up, haven’t finished tying loose ends at work, and haven’t found a pet-sitter for my expensive koi fish. Aggh!!

Catching up on all the work I missed last week while I was out of state.

My husband is still unemployed, and the available jobs are few and far between. He just had to file for an extension of unemployment benefits. Thank goodness it was approved, at least.

I have to present a paper early next week. Another presenter just found out he cannot attend and asked me to present his paper as well. Foolishly, I agreed.

The unseasonable coldness has made hanging at the privately owned and operated arboretum not as pleasurable as it could. Been cooler all summer than average, so this cold snap should have been expected.

I got rid of the biggest stressor I have EVER had in my life! What was I thinking?? Sigh…..

Now I’m worried about @Hawaii_Jake‘s computer. Me, I’m just stressed about getting rid of all the fleas before Thanksgiving. I think it’s doable, but it’s a bear. Actually, getting rid of a bear would be easier… :-/

Finances have me quite stressed these days

That I am sick again, that Alex in in London, that I care about grades (again, sigh), that I don’t sleep enough, that I don’t see my kids enough, that I have too much homework over the weekend, etc.

Just got the first propane tank fill of winter, a whooping $518 that translates to about $4.18 a gallon. And that was with my tank still being at about 20%. Fuck me! haha

The same things as always.
Nothing changes when I wave my magic wand or twitch my nose…so I must plug along.

My stepdaughter having been caught attempting suicide has been diagnosed as bi polar. This is a girl who is a straight A’s student, involved in all kinds of extracurricular activities and who has always been loving to her siblings. In just a few short months, she’s had some mental break and we don’t know why or how to help her.

Being a teen, she’s taken this opportunity to tell both her mother and father every horrible thing she’s thought of them as well as how to blame them, yadda yadda. She’s angry at us for putting her in hospital for surveillance while her meds are adjusted but we can’t take any chances with her hurting herself while in a bad mindset.

Our wedding is next week with friends and family coming from all over the country but us and grandparents are finding it hard to be happy when one of our own is so very unhappy.

@Neizvestnaya : I’m so sorry to hear about your stepdaughter, but congratulations on your wedding.

This job. It will be ok, but right now I have a splitting headache.

Drink a nice glass of wine and relax a little, darlin’. I hope things get better!

On 3rd November (when you intended this question to be answered) it was the fact that my boyfriend was working away and I felt very lonely and depressed. Everything was making me feel stressed because of that.

Now it’s that I am singing in a concert in just over a weeks time and I don’t feel as prepared as I would like to at this stage.
