Well I can think of one way to escape stress... which is why I am here. I am reaching my wits end. My job requires me to work 40 hour weeks plus overtime. I am on call 24/7/365. At any moments notice I could get a call with a question. My phone constantly goes off with pages from work, about stuff that I can do nothing about. It has gotten so bad that I cannot even joy vacation time. I have yet to have a vacation where I do not work. I always get called. As the stress builds so do my suicidal tendencies. Today, I was looking up how to calculate kinetic energy. Really this is the first time I have made such a detailed plan. In some ways it scares me... in other ways it comforts me. Right now I lack a car so I cannot go out and get the materials I would need to execute said plan... but I am not sure that will stop me. I just want to escape... I guess REI is only... a 10 mile bike ride... it will be good for me. What can I do to escape the stress? Well maybe not escape.. but I would like to dull the stress a little if possible.
