Illustration for article titled Taking on my partners stress - cuz Im generous like that...

So, today is a big day in the Stockton household... Doc Stockton is writing his medical boards today (and for the next 4 days! He finishes on Sunday! Jesus). Last night, he was very responsible, smart, organized. Assembled all the things he'd need for today, set the coffee, went to bed at a reasonable hour. Slept remarkably well. And I lay awake worrying until... 2 am? Maybe?


He's just been such a radiating, walking, talking basket case for the last three weeks that I think I am on my very last fucking nerve...

Anyway, my point is 2 fold: 1) I just needed to get it out there, and it was either post on GT or text all of my friends, and it's 8 am PDT over here, so I don't think they'd appreciate that... and 2) does anyone else do this? I have such an awful habit of listening to people, letting them vent, helping them relax, convincing them they're doing everything right and they don't need to worry... and then worrying about their issue FOR THEM. I take on other people's shit constantly, and I don't know how to stop. Do any of you have this problem, and how do you deal with it?
