How do you preserve your sanity in times of great stress and chaos?
...Just the other day I found out that my girlfriend has been cheating on me and I got so upset over it and accidentally yelled at my mother and made her cry... and then my dog got out of my apartment in the middle of the night and I got a call that he was hit by a car and one of his legs were crushed. And now my apartment is infested with fleas from my indoor/outdoor cat and I have no money right now to get rid of them, so now my cat, crippled dog, and I are sitting in my house starving and covered in flea bites because I spent all my money at the vet for my dog... I honestly don't know how much more I can take. As each day passes I feel like I'm slowly losing my mind... How does one stay sane and not go absolutely beserk? I feel like running away and either paying someone to bury me in a coffin six feet underground, or getting a lobotomy. But since both of those require money I don't have, I guess I have to stay here and go crazy... Unless you guys have any ways/tricks/ancient secrets or whatever to stay sane in tough situations? Thanks in advance to all who contribute. I greatly appreciate it.
