Stacking HBC during times of high stress/grief

Hi lovely VPers!

I've been on Ortho tri cyclen lo for two years now and I haven't tried to stack before, so I did some research here and it looks like starting my next pack backward (1-2-3-3-2-1, then withdrawal bleed) would be the most effective way to do so, starting tomorrow.

Unfortunately the reason I'm stacking is because my grandmother's funeral will be next week/weekend, and I'll be spending a lot of time in the car and my emotional state will be shaky enough without adding menstruation to the mix, you know?  It makes sense to me that grief/stress could do strange things to a cycle, even if HBC is involved, so I'm a little worried.

Does anyone have any thoughts?  Is stacking through this next week a bad or good idea?
