Stress is a known factor in 70 of all diseases. Although it is impossible to take stress out of your life, you can learn to manage it. Don't allow stress to rob you of your energy and steal your enjoyment of life, learn to pace yourself, accept imperfections, and do what is within your capabilities. Be flexible - remember, that the strongest tree is the one that bends with the storm. Respectfully, Wj'liam L. McCabe John J. McCab Robert J. McCab)
