Stress management: Please go to www.relaxationresponse.org for some self-help. It will give you a simple technique to lower your fight-flight-freeze response, which gets activated during stress. Consider seeing a therapist for support, or a prudent spiritual leader. Peace and good health. Continue to see your doctor.
