Anxiety/stress is a daily problem in my life and it's even genetic.
My grandfather passed away from heart complications from it, and put my father out of work for a period of time because he would get hives on his skin.
I doubt I'll live past 30, but I also refuse to take medication. I have a mentality of, "if there's not something wrong, there's something wrong".
Personally, I often go on walks when I get home from work and listen to my music - as Mel Gibson said.
ET is also a stress reliever for me, but of course I can only be on it so much during the weekends and work nights.
Busy hands will equal to busy minds.
So keep doing what you're doing, and Godspeed to you.
(But if you're really bored, I wouldn't mind a giant, wooden ship to sail on of my own!
