    & what most people do not realize that divorce, (for both men and women), can manifest in many different ways; so take on 1: emotional shock; 2: Financial shock 3; :. Adjustment disorder; 4: multiple variables… anyone one us can easily pay a visit to the padded room. Most of us don’t realize it, but when one overcomes such issues, (through positive coping); your coping skills exceed improve into much higher heights than one could ever ask for :o)

  5. I knew of the stress-scale and did the test on myself at about 14 weeks post ‘tsunami’.

I now still have some of those postponed issues still ahead of me but I am in a better place to deal with them now.

    I need a padded room. My stress tends to be through the roof. I scored a 438. They need to add “extra martial affairs” to that stressor list. I’d be over 600…
