I just found this book on the shelf and I think I'm going to read it. It's called "Why Zebras Don't Get Ulcers: The Acclaimed Guide to Stress, Stress-Related Diseases, and Coping." Hopefully, it will give me some good ideas on dealing with life right now. So far, I've learned (and this is probably obvious to most of you) that stress can lead to depression, anxiety and weight gain. All things I'm dealing with right now. So, maybe I'll get some good tips. If any of you know of any good techniques on dealing with stress or good books on stress or depression, let me know.

I know you are trying to hold on to this job until you leave for CA, and I understand your reasons for doing so.
However, I would really consider not hanging onto it, as NO JOB IS WORTH YOUR HEALTH, mental or physical. The kind of crap you put up with can lead to huge health problems down the road.

Well, usually I am anonymous, but the earlier comment was not from me. Whoever it may be is obviously a brilliant and blessed human of the highest order.

Well... since you asked.... anti-depressants. I tried everything for ten years, but anti-depressants were what turned it around for me.
