The 10 Most Stressful Life Events

A new study found the major life events that stress us out the most.  And I'm not sure how "the Internet going down" didn't make the list, but I guess in the grand scheme that's pretty small.

Here are the actual 10 most stressful things that can happen to us, according to the study . . .

1.  The death of a spouse, relative, or friend.

2.  Going to jail.

3.  A natural disaster or a fire damaging your house.

4.  Getting diagnosed with a serious illness.

5.  Being fired.

6.  Getting separated or divorced.

7.  Being a victim of identity theft.

8.  Unexpected money problems.

9.  Starting a new job.

10.  Planning a wedding.

And one more note:  A terrorist attack only came in 13th on the list by just a tiny margin over the 14th most stressful life event . . . losing your phone.
