I would say that one stressor I have (or I should say had) was being with my ex-boyfriend, he did not approve of me going back to school. It was a very stressful relationship in the fact that he was a very controlling person. He would tell me that I was stupid, or that I was going to fail or drop out. He would also make it impossible for me to use his computer to do my school work. I often feared that he would tear my books up. He would get physical and I would yell at him or cry. I however, had already decided that I wanted to go to school fulltime. It was very hard for me to leave someone I love, but I do realize that being around my emotionally supportive family is what is best for me. They are very encouraging and proud of me and I think that is a stress relief all on its own.
Another stress that I have had in my life is not having a home to call my own, it can be very stressful to not have a place to go and study and do normal daily living. I have had to get my bath in the park and sleep in my car, when I had one. I would get nauseated from being so stressed out about where we were going to stay each night. I would say that my stress was relieved a lot when I moved in with my brother. I now have a place to study and do my school work and perform normal daily duties. The only stress I have experienced there has been how to get back and forth from college because it is so far from town, but I know that things will work out for the best , they have already started to.
I think finances and not having a job has a big part in the stress that I feel right now, I get a headache sometimes just thinking about it. One way I de-stress is by filling out applications for employment and looking on craigslist for cleaning jobs. I know my stress will diminish a lot once my student aid gets here and I can finish purchasing the items that I need for school and be a little more financially stable on my own.
