Re: Can stress and anxiety make you sick ?
One day last August, I started feeling bad, thought I was coming down with "something". I spent a week in bed, sick as a dog. 103 temp most of the time and many trips to the Dr. Finally, a week later, I was in the hospital with Pneumonia, really bad according to my Doc. I spent 3 days there. I always thought I was healthy, exercise, eat right, most of the time, but I think the stress just go to me. Owning my own business and wondering what everyone will think of my product just got to me. About a month before, my Step Mom said I didn't look so good.
I totally belive you can stress yourself into getting sick. I do it to myself all the time, or I did. After I was sick I decided to take better care of myself mentally and physically. Yoga everyday and telling people "no" if I can't handle anymore work load.
Take good care of yourself
