@Deejayelle:  VooDoo dolls… JK. This :

 

(had to see a psychologist under work’s EAP – which his year will be impossible to access given that there is no backup for my job!),

 

 

 

You contact EAP again due to “hostile work environment” and you get yourself help. 

ETA: A medical diagnosis related to your employment should fall under some disability laws as well, not sure about the state you live in tho.

@Billsgirl:  +1 … including the dolls 😀 

I used to have to take a lap.  That was a lap around the building.  I was an adjuster arguing with attornys all day.  The gym helped alot.  It’s hard to  go to sleep when your all wound up from work.

@Deejayelle:  

Girl, this is why I became a housewife.

I sincerely hope that you get some kind of repreive at work though. That sounds like a tough situation.

I’ve found working out has done wonders for my mental health.  I’m actually a little worried I’m not going to make it to the gym over the next several weeks – trials back to back until probably mid-May, which means a fair bit of working late.  I take classes because if I didn’t I’d have no idea what I was doing.  It’s going to be tough, but as long as I can keep up my Thursday Aikido and my twice-weekly runs (which is organized through work, actually) I should be okay.  I also do thrice-weekly waterfit, but a couple of those can be bumped if needed – although I feel really bad for letting down my mom, because we do that together.

But yeah, definitely – exercise and keeping healthy (i.e. eating as clean as possible) works wonders for my health and stress levels.
