    thanks for sharing--I need to reduce stress --my hair is falling out I am so stressed--the doc said its not my meds--just stress-
    I am exercising more--I do have a meditation Cd-- I will do that tomorrow-- with all this stuff to do I will be sooooo busy-- I also need to nap once a day a I am re- cooping from a vasculitis flare-- and the meds make u tired-
    that is part of why I gained so much weight-- Time management is something I try to do-- so I can accomplish as much as I can without wearing myself out---I know my friends said deep breathing several times a day is good-- yoga is something I'd like to try--seen it on TV for older folk--using a chair-- that looked interesting
    Thanks again
