I’ve never really been a fan of Mondays, regardless of the fact that I don’t have a regular job. I guess it’s the fact that in my mind, Monday represents back to business. By business, I mean making phone calls, leaving voicemail messages etc.

Due to my life situation, I deal with a number of Agencies in order to maintain my level of life. For the most part, things run smoothly, but problems arise at times. To be honest, it can be a good thing. I’d be worried if things ran smoothly 100% of the time. I consider myself to be a “glass half full” type of person, but I start looking over my shoulder when things seem good or even normal in my life.

I never really understood the whole concept of stress-free. We all have stresses in life, even rich people. Hell I can’t even remember the last 100% stress free vacation that I had. I’m sure many of you can relate to that. The point is that life can make you stressed out, but you do have a choice when it comes to dealing with it.

You can choose to let it overtake you or you can choose to just suck it up. It’s been my experience that if you let it overtake you, not only is it not healthy, but chances are you’ll make it worse. I often chose the latter, at least I try to anyways.

I accepted at a young age that life is full of twists and turns. Even while I lived in the Hospital, I was surrounded by Nurses & Doctors that ran around like Chickens with their heads cut off. Luckily, I had the ability to tune it out often and go about my daily life. I can be pretty self sufficant when need be.

There’s no real meaning or reason for this post. I just felt like, well, rambling. If there’s a moral to this post, all I can say is try not to stress out.

Stress can indeed be a mess.

    One less stress, perhaps: I keep forgetting, but I do know how to fix the date format, if you’re so inclined.

    From the Dashboard, select Manage, then Settings (it’s toward the top, way over on the right – not near the rest of the stuff). Then under General, it’s the 7th option down – Date format. Mine says:
    F j, Y

    I’m guessing yours has a lowercase f in there, and some combination of other stuff. I don’t know how to customize it offhand, but that’s where it’s at.

    Good luck!

    Hopefully I got it right.

    This is really good advice. And great observations. I am sure that people either don’t realize that people with disabilities have stresses (because they supposedly are not “out in the world”) or they think that our lives are 100% stress but it is just not true.

    PS: Don’t point out that there is no point to your own postings. I’m glad you wrote this posting.

    Thanks very much.

    Disabled people are like everyone else, both good and bad. If anyone disagrees, we may run them down. 😛

    Thanks for liking this post.
