Re: Stress and Trauma
I'm glad you're on this message board, too. Like the thread above, you seem to hit the nail on the head. You're right--'fight or flight' is an everyday thing that can wreck the body.
I also have a theory: a person who has a great amount of stress over a long period time gets physically broken down due to the reasons you gave. The immune system is then compromised. I really believe if it's very severe for a very long time---Fibromyalgia can settle in.
Like you, I'm researching, but can pin down exact evidence of it, but I see the line of reasoning you're following. I'll pursue that lead. Thanks.
