2. I was sitting at home, on my computer when my mom decided to walk in and tell me to start my homework. Little did she know, as she continued on yelling at me about how I never do anything, I was reading my math textbook. After we had gotten into an argument, she left the room, and instead of continuing to read, I got on the computer to take my mind off the situation. 3. After I had gotten into an argument with my mom, I noticed that I started to get a headache and my neck felt very tense. 4. I was mad at the situation, as well as my mom, and felt sad that my mom felt that I wasn’t using my time usefully. 5. To cope with the stress, I decided to get on the computer to take my mind off of things. 6. I felt that the strategy that I used was fairly effective in that it took my mind off the situation and let me enjoy the rest of my night.

Being how I am, I removed myself from the situation and walked out of the room, giving us both a chance to cool off because going out to dinner for Valentine’s Day. 3. After getting into the argument I noticed that my head started to feel like it was throbbing. 4. Initially I was angry at the fact that we were disagreeing over something so simple, but then I was overwhelmed with the feeling that it was pointless to be arguing. 5. To cope with the problem, I went back downstairs to the room where my boyfriend was and talked to him about what had happened, and eventually worked out our differences. 6. I thought how I coped with the stress worked very well, as neither of us suffered any long-term effects from the stress and in the end, worked out our problems.
