    We all have our different story in life but are you a worrywart or does stuff roll off easily?
    I tend be pretty low stress most times and don't dwell on things long enough to eat at me.

    On a scale from 1-10, with ten being highly stressed, where would you fit? I say I'm at a 2 or 3. Maybe I need to worry more at times....

    Well, what I do is bad, I play the cool game but keep stuff bottled in. People like you, if you’re really a 2-3, live to be old! Stress is a killer.

    I don't stress much at all. I do get pissed/mad, but not stressed. I'd say a 3.....

    I lay awake at night spinning my gears about things...
    such as trying to find a decent holster for my new pistol will keep me awake, My mind never quits...

    While under pressure, I'm tense at first and then calm as a cucumber when reality sets in a few moments later, because I know I can do or handle it.

    I come in from work, smack a kid, kick the dog, grab a beer and I'm good.

    People say I have ice water running though my vains under high stress. But I always say I'm like a duck calm on the surfice but underneath I'm piddling like mad.

    I don’t think most people would tell you the complete truth in a thread like this.

    Seems to get less the older I get. Have more to deal with now than ever, just starting to realize worrying about it doesn't help one damn bit. Philippians 4:6, serenity prayer, all that... most people stress WAY too much about things they have no control over.

    With our country in turmoil and headed in a bad direction, I'm at about 5. Mind never stops running through the bs going on everywhere.

    I am around a 2 or 3 depending on situations. I try to quickly find a solution to an issue quickly.
