For those who get stressed out easily

Recommended Posts


For the past I'd say year I have learned to not get stressed out by things at all. When I see one of my freinds get stressed out over stupid stuff I wonder why don't they just relax. My freind is in the Marines and after been put through the hardest, most stressful work he has learned to keep his cool and not let things effect him. He said 3 things that people have to remember when getting stressed out over stupid stuff.

1. It's never as bad as it seems.

People always tend to act like the world is going to end when the smallest obstacle comes there way. The key is to keep your cool, I used to immediatly loose my temper when stupid things would happen. One time my plane was re-routed to baltimore instead of NY. When I got off the plane I lost my temper and was flippin out. Once I relaxed and thought, "how do I fix this" I found there was an amtrak 5 miles down the road. I got home late but whatever.

2. The problem always gets worked out

No matter what it is the problem will settle or you will find a way to fix it.

3. Someone always has it worse.

Right when you think your so screwed just think there are people in a lot worse situation. I thought about this when my gf broke up with me. But then I though shit my freind has to worry about dieing everyday in Iraq. Things could be alot worse

So for people that get stressed out or think they have it bad just remeber those 3 things and life will be a breeze. Life really is to short to be pissed off. And I think the real meaning of life is to be a happy easy going person and succesful.

      It should be noted that the Gates foundation was part of a venture capital group that gave Genocea $30 million in support of their vaccine development efforts in the period when their lead candidate was an HSV-2 therapeutic vaccine (GEN-003): https://xconomy.com/boston/2012/10/10/genocea-snags-30m-from-gates-foundation-vcs-for-new-vaccines/ They have also provided 30 million dollars to the University of Washington's HSV efforts.  This time specifically on research into whether suppressing HSV results in a reduction in HIV transmission: https://honeycomb.click/topic/77503-donations-to-fred-hutch-center/page/21/?tab=comments#comment-493474  Far from inactive in HSV research they provide significant funding in the context of reducing HIV transmission.  It's a well established fact that genital HSV greatly increases the probably contracting HIV from an infected partner.

      Human trials starting next year?  Not even close. It will be several years.

      Sounds like X-vaxs' biggest concern is prevention and erradication secondary..... 🤦🏻‍♂️

      It may be small scale but at least it shows me that I'm by far not the only one who isn't willing to disclose to casual partners anymore. The damage for oneself is too high to make it worth it imho: - seduction becomes difficult as guy if they know in advance - you're very likely to become a gossip object if it happens within your social circle - you get abandoned before it even starts to get intense - you end up lonely and depressed after being abandoned for such a reason Still, that doesn't answer the question if it's better to disclose properly out of nowhere during the relationship or wait for the symptoms to appear and pretend to be surprised and fake the doctor diagnosis afterwards. At the moment I think the true disclosure would be less likely to be accepted by the partner, but in case it works it would feel better in the end because there's less of a secret kept in the long run... and of course there's lower moral burden when disclosing earlier because you're handing over responsibility of risk exposure to the partner.
