      Hi, Simply Jill, AWESOME! Great read here. I needed to read this as 'stress' and I are always in an on-again, on-again relationship. Even stress gives me stress. But your hub will be helpful in helping me make a clean break. Thanks. Voted up, useful, awesome beautiful and interesting. I am now a fan and humble follower. Sincerely, Kenneth Avery, from a rural town in northwest Alabama, Hamilton to be honest, a town that makes you think of Andy and Barney's home town.
