How do you deal with stress? When I talk to parents of typical kids, I feel like they don't get just how stressful parenting difficult child is. I get advice like "get out once or twice a month"...Once or twice a month!!?? I need a stress relief by noon time. I find myself snacking, which is not good since I need to lose weight. Getting away from difficult child for alone time is not possible during the day and I find snacking is something that relieves my stress even when the pooh is hitting the fan, as it doesn't require peace and quiet, or alone time. How do you relieve stress throughout the day?? Oh I wanted to add, incase my name seems new, I had it changed because the old one was my email. Just anyone who's like "Who's Jane???"
