Autogenic Training delivered professionally will also help your body and mental state fight stress, to target the specific problem. (It does not include massage, and definitely not deep breathing which should be avoided.)
If you do go down this route. Norpig, make sure your practitioner is fully qualified and not some amateur psychologist.
I actually mention ALL the "useful things" that mattered to ME when I've been through shit.
I think it is absolutely pathetic to even attempt to carry on your continual little 'digs' at me on a thread as clearly sensitive and deeply personal as this one.
I said in my post that we all "try to cope in our own ways" as there is no one answer to deal with such matters otherwise we'd all know what to do wouldn't we?
If you deal with stress by thinking happy thoughts and with your "relaxed breathing" and "muscle relaxation" then good for you.
For me I'd rather deal with what causes the stress than managing the symptoms of it.
I'm sure Norpig will find whatever is the right path for him.
