I am disabled and I find that as the years go by I can take less and less stress. Seeing my cat hemorrhaging and thinking she might die made me so ill I could not stay out of bed for more than an hour at a time. It was a shock, but whenever I am emotionally about something I get physically ill as well. Do you get physically ill when you are worrying or afraid or anxious about something. Give an example for best response.

I am also disabled. Diagnosed with severe depression with panic attacks. If I come up against too much stress I break down. I get a rash, body shakes, feel nauseated,emotional, headache, stomacheache, and if really severe I get physically ill. THis is somewhat from being totally responsible for a troubled child and feeling so very hopeless and scared. Some days I sleep most of, others I sleep for afew and am up for afew. It really depends on the severity of what is going on. I call what happens to me being allergic to stress.

Hello winterose hope you're doin' well always. Yeah, stress and unusual problem could give strong negative effect on our selves. Like me these past few days. My worries, problem and some anxieties eaten me up. From being 175lbs, I dropped to 164lbs abruptly. I was so amazed because this is the first time I lost that weight in a matter of month or two. I did some body reducing before but not to that kind. I walked and jogged each morning to reduced my self but stress and worries is the best kind of reducing weights. Thanks my friend.

There are many situations that can cause a lot of people to get like this, and worrying about things is one of the worst things overall a person can do, as it can wear them down emotionally and physically and make everything just seem all awry. For me when things start to get this way I usually am reminded from my husband and others to give it to god and Pray. It may take a while for things to look up and for me to start feeling a little better but knowing God is now in control makes it so much better for sure.

I know hon, but it my body that fails me regardless of how I feel, the worry is not on the conscious level but deep down in the subconcious where I cannot access it.

I think a lot of us do that, to varying degrees of consequences. For those of us with ill health already like you, it's far more damaging. I'm better at dealing with worry than I used to be, but I'm a long way of being able to cope perfectly when something awful happens.

I have gone through so much stress in my life, that I reached my saturation point and now being sick it comes out physically in me.

I understand. Fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue come with many symptoms and pains. A few months ago, I had a new kind of pain. It felt like I was being electrically shocked and boy did it hurt. One time it hurt so much that it knocked me out of my chair. That was a concern. What if I had been driving my car when that happened? The pain made me stiffen up. Would my foot have pressed down farther on the gas or brake if it happened in the car? Anyway, off to the doctor I went. He first reassured me that "electronic shock" pains are normal for fibro. When I pressed him about why I would have a new pain crop up now, he asked, "What new stress do you have?" He was right. I did have a new stress in my life - my son's health.

yep I have fibro, and the electrical pains, and the itching, and the chronic fatigue and dizziness and IBS and incontinence, and thyroid problems and diabetes as well.
