Almost there...

Work is stressful, not just for me, but for most of us. Turns out, the more you're in control of your job - how you do it, when you do it, and how you're judged - the less stressful it is. As it turns out, that crappy job you had in high school that seemed really stressful probably was!

On the plus side, the little day to day stresses may not actually be destroying us body and soul. In fact, short-term stress actually helps our body repair itself. Perhaps the fluctuating stress levels of my job are part of gives me the best immune system of anyone I know. I also don't doubt that my determination to keep my weekends sacred helps extensively as well, both because I put my foot down (determining my fate), and because it's a clean break each week from the work stresses.
