@Liz1967 - Interesting studies!
@scanders - I've had 5 flares of hypER over the last 10 years due to stress, and all of them occurred when I was right in the middle of it. (Obviously, my own stress management skills could use some improvement…) It might be helpful to label the stressor as something over which you have no control or some control. Things like meditation, deep breathing, etc. might be more helpful for the former - while adding a concrete action plan might be helpful for the latter.
