Take action:
Be on the lookout for these signs of a stress crisis: you feel down or depressed most of the time; you are violent and out of control; you’re getting too strict with your kids; you feel as though family and friends are letting you down and disappointing you; you’ve been drinking more than usual; you’re out of control when you drink; and you feel helpless and unable to cope.
