    Recovery

    I have been researching the Type A subject in my free time. It is really scary seeing all of the damage stress can do to your heart, brain, and your general health. I am feeling a great deal of regret over my life choices. I see that most type A become that way in reaction to...

    Feeling So Much Better

    Strife

    Since I am the only member of this group, I will just make a new story every so often. I guess type A's have trouble admitting that they have a problem, like most people. I know from my reading of the Bible that Jesus covers the subject of strife. I think type A personalities...

    Hurriedness

    One of the aspects that is so hard to shake in being a type A personality is being hurried. It is an internal "hurry" in which one doesn't allow oneself to sit back and enjoy the finer things in life. I notice when I shoot basketball with my son, I keep having a feeling that...
