Thanks for asking. I think it had more to do with me being too immature to handle what I was dealing with and not having enough supports around me, by my own doing, to deal with everything. The exercise and diet was a step in a direction that allowed me to mature and deal with these issues in a more mature way. Where before I experienced extreme emotions when dealing with stressors I now tend to be more reasonable and realistic (usually anyway). Getting clean and changing my habits helped start me on that path. Being open with my clients started me on that path as well. Which is kind of neat to me that my clients were as much of a help to me as I hopefully was to them even if they were never aware of it.
theres also a health related fact behind that, as (legit sorry if im repeating info you know already)
doing exercises and getting a better balanced diet helps build serotonin which has a factor in helping you deal with stressors better than before
i can relate to your story in the sense that i was faced with stressors as well, and i went and did research on the net about what helps fight back against it and found out all this stuff about serotonin and what you can do to fight back against this stuff.
so yea i myself had went on a binge and exercised a whole bunch and took specific vitamins (apparently b complex and omega 3 are real good for this scenario) and lo and behold shit barely gets to me anymore.
I feel like Konami's pre-record went up on the Thursday before E3 last year and the year before. Is there a live Konami press conference this year? I'd really like to hear a couple of hundred people feign surprise (or interest) at the shock announcement that David Hayter is voicing Solid Snake in a Metal Gear game. I am not even being facetious, that genuinely sounds like prime Konami conference material.
I really hope they announce it and David Hayter is in the audience and he just screams OH MY GOOOD NO FUCKING WAY in a way that makes it seem like he is both surprised but also just kidding.
it would be the best thing ever if that scenario actually happened, would also add to the fucking with the audience if he also just starts crying also :P
