    Stress--where do you stand with the stats?

    According to the the "Harris Interactive Polls" here is what bothers us:
    56% are stressed from having "to many things to do."
    33% are stressed from having "to much information."
    53% have trouble sleeping.
    77% are annoyed by Internet spam
    Only 3% polled worry about money
    63% of women and 55% of the men polled said they would rather be thin and poor than fat and rich
    58% polled said their fellow Americans were hard working while 78% said that Mexican immigrants are more hardworking than we Americans
    86% of adults are "scared of something, or by something" like snakes or heights.

    Where do you fit in to the above stats? What bothers you or stresses you in your daily life the most? Have any heightened fears?!? Me, I hate to fly, and, I got a "thing" about elevators! Got locked in one in Mexico in the middle of an earthquake with MY MOTHER!! :verysad:

    I have a hard time sleeping because I am afraid that there is a spider on my puter, causing spam cause he knows too much info about the things I need to do. ;)
    But seriously I am the biggest baby when it comes to spiders. :worry:

    I have to many things to do....but I keep the stress part to a minimum. This hoilday season, I was all about priorities.....the hottest fire was put out first. I did things in order of importance and didnt worry about anything else. This meant there were days where dishes didnt get done or laundry wasnt folded, and they were still there when I got to them.

    I am extremely claustrophobic....no tight spaces for me!

    I'm extremely claustrophobic also, when I was pregnant my husband couldn't even hug me because I felt sufficated. I also have an "elevator" thing although I've gotten over most of it since having kids (no way I'll drag everyone up stairs if I don't have to! ) I have a "thing" about watching other people brush their teeth...I just can't watch or hear it...to me it's like hearing someone screech a chalkboard (this latest toothpaste commerical w/Brooke Shields, I can't look when it comes on).

    Another action that just makes me gag, is when I practiced medicine, and, use to have to take out folk's false teeth! YEWWWW! The sound of the suction breaking, the junk on the plates, my stomach would turn and I could feel my knees getting weak. Shoot, put me in the ER/OR no big deal! Gimme false teeth,and, I crumble! LOL
