What is the biggest stress factor in your life? How are you trying to resolve or work through this issue?

My relationship with my husband is a huge stress factor in my life. He is turning into a bitter, angry person who is continually sarcastic, cutting and condescending....I can't live like that.

The situation with our house is still up in the air. I'm still stressed out about getting broken into right before Easter, and there was a whole mess with someone we (sort of) trusted stealing my husband's wallet that we're still dealing with the fallout from.

Slightly less stressful, but we're getting our son registered to start school for the first time in the fall and figuring out the related child care/transportation issues. Part of me feels guilty that I'm making all of these arrangements now, because I don't know for sure we'll still be living in the same area come August, but I need to keep carrying on just in case we're still here.

Visa renewal season!!!!

Every year, I have to go to the police station, get a full physical, renew my experts certificate and the process is so emotionally stressful.

There is nothing I can do to reduce the stress about it as it is totally out of my hands. I try not to stress about it... but it is really impossible not to stress over it.

For me the biggest stresser in my life would have to be my lack of accomplishments. At my age, most people have at least got their education done, or on the roll, but me? I'm still slowly working my way through it. A top this, i have a income that I can barely live off of, and a once a week, if that, job that is hardly worth the work I do. I'm trying to better my life, because I'm sick of living the way I do, but it takes a long time to break a habit after so many years of doing to same things over, and over. But hey, I'd rather try, then not.

Honestly... life. I just have always stressed about everything. I'm a worrier. Everything I do, I have to think about all the potential outcomes, focusing on all the potential failures. I have an overwhelming need to be, "good enough," and if I'm not, then that means I'm a failure and not worthy of, well, anything. I can't ask for help because that would mean I can't do something on my own. If I can't do something on my own, what good am I?

Logically, I know this way of thinking is flawed, but I can't help it. This is just how I've always been. I don't really know how to resolve it.

My ex boyfriend won't leave me alone. I've talked to him but he tells me that moving in with me is still an option. I'm moving across country next year. That should resolve the issue.

Schoolwork is the most stressful for me. I try to soften the blow by keeping well organized and most importantly, no procrastination!

MONEY! I hate it. And being in school makes it sooooo much harder. My partner essentially has to make all of our income while I am in school. It's really hard on her, she works 60-70 hours a week between 2 jobs. I am so thankful to her, and she knows that. But sometimes it's just hard. And I do feel bad
