Stress Relief

If you have been following this blog, you know that I deal with depression. Well, I also deal with PTSD, and having a messed up child-hood. I know, I know, EVERYONE has a dysfunctional child-hood. Without going into too much detail, mine is especially dysfunctional. So I'm not incredibly healthy. I mean, I'm proud of my parenting, I'm proud of my relationship skills, I like myself. But I know that I am not healthy. So what I do when faced with stress is to try to escape. This is much better than what I used to do when faced with stress.

What I do now is to escape into sombody else's blog. It gives me stress relief, It's interesting, and sometimes, as in this case it inspires me. So my feature that you see on the left, "My Current Escape" Is just that. Does anybody else do this? Spend HOURS reading someone else's life to escape their own?

Yes, other people do it. Well at least I do. Thank goodness Al Gore invented the internet so we can read other people's blogs. I also escape the world by sticking my nose in a book. Overall it is a healthier way to escape, there are worse things for sure! :)
