I think I have heard a million times that stress isn't good for me or the Larva, but sometimes I feel like I am at the end of my rope and don't know what to do.

(No "tie a knot and hang on jokes" please.)

My biggest issue comes when the stress is directly related to people that surround me. How do I make choices between the health of my Larva and myself versus other people's feelings? I just have the deepest desire to curl up in a ball and ignore those people that stress me out.

Unfortunately, that's apparently not acceptable at work. Or at home.

I wish I were a Bear. A huge Mummy Bear. And I could take my cub-Caterpillars and hide in a cave all winter. Then show up next Spring with three cubs, and deal with people then. At the very least, I wish I could surround myself with just the people who are supportive of me and the Larva (and Hubby and the Caterpillars).

This level of stress is just not healthy! Especially not right now.

Sorry about the stress.

Do you have any "escape" mechanisms? I used to take naps - - - or blog - - - or read - - - or just hide away in my house for a while until I felt better.
