Teenage Years

These high school years are so the challenge.  I believe there is much more pressure to understand who you are earlier than we ever experienced.  It is so hard to watch them work through questions many 40 years olds have yet to answer while still physically and emotionally maturing.  I can’t begin to imagine the amount of emotional complexity that comes from being the younger sibling

Change and stress

jp hypertension and bp 160/90. Out for two
Troy utterly wiped out. Out for two

Overload
Both had other jobs for 6-15 years
Stress of finding, negotiating, quitting, starting and learning new job, meeting new people and way outside comfort zones
