....I went to the neurologist today, and this was his diagnosis...Stress. The allusive answer to seemingly every problem a person could have. Stress. How to cure stress? Do you get enough sleep? Yes. Do you get enough free time? What's enough? I know there is an age-old cure for stress that my husband is a big fan of, but I feel that base is covered as well. So I guess the million dollar question that will cure me of my blinding headaches is how
can I relieve the stress? How do you relieve your stress dear reader? Is it possible? I hope so.

I sew to help with the stress. I also have found that focusing my energy on something that I enjoy helps to.

There are also a few places I know that help with stress...Cabbage Rose, Sam Moon, Fuzzy's, or 449 Cambridge Dr.

Hang in there!
