    Stress - Fact Or Fiction

    There was a time in my life that I was so arrogant that I thought Stress did not exist!  I actually told a staff member who said that a particular job was too stressful that if they didn't want to do it to just say so.  I believed that stress was just an excuse to be lazy...

    That nobody would believe me

    if I told someone what my father was doing to me all those years. 8 years of lies! He told me it wouldn't hurt, that it was a good thing, that he'd stop!

    Making out & getting pregnant.

    It's my mom's fault. I blame it all on her shoulders. You see when I was growing up she used to read all these Harlequin romances and back then they were pretty tame. No graphic sex. So everything starting with the kisses that then turned into passionate makeout sessions...

    I invented my own word

    when I was a kid. I used the made-up word "cautionate" because I didn't know the word "cautious" existed. I later felt dumb for never using the right word.
