Stress Much? Part 1

So due to recent events, the term "stress" has been on my mind a lot. My 3yr old son had 3 seizures last week. We had to take him into get an EEG done yesterday morning early to see if there are any abnormalities going on with his brain. One of the thoughts that occurred to me about why this might be happening, is maybe he is stressing out too much! We all deal with some sort of stress and anxiety. But my little guy seems to be a little more sensitive, at least compared to his sisters. He freaks out about little things and has a hard time with change. So I've been wondering if maybe these seizures are stress-induced. I am no doctor, nor do I claim to be. I just wanna know what is going on with my son. It will take up to 10 days before we will hear anything back. Until then, I STRESS! :) 
So what oils can be good for stress or anxiety? The most obvious ones are Lavender and Serenity. These oils are calming and soothing. So a little bit in the mornings, or at nights, or both, can probably help you mellow out a bit. I might have to start using it more regularly because my school semester just started. Talk about STRESS! :)
What kinds of things are you guys stressing about right now? Leave a comment. Vent a little. None of us mind! :) It does a body good to vent sometimes.
Part 2 of this post will come stay tuned...
