@hopeful33250, @jimb– I still have some triggers though I just checked another one off my long held list. Just got back from Victoria B.C. and went out on a small whalewatching tour boat quite a ways out into the ocean. Luckily is was very calm and there were lots of Humbacks & Orcas for distractions!
All in all walking for me is a great stress reliever. I generally go 4-5 times a week on a 3 1/2 mile trek that is mostly wooded and on some boardwalks through some ponds & creeks that always have lots of wildlife.
Also, since writing is the toughest for me I try noy to put myself in situations that when I need to do it I do it earlier in the day and if it's out in public I try to move down the counter out of the way or simply have my wife sign for me. Seek to be joyful! Jim @thankful
