      Very interesting. I know in the past that stress has affected me physically in a lot of ways. I remember one dentist appointment I had a few years ago where the dentist was very worried about my gums bleeding a lot. I explained that I had just ended my busy season at my accounting firm and the dentist agreed that the high blood pressure caused by stress caused bleeding gums. I got out of public accounting and my stress level and bleeding gums went down. There is a definite connection!

      I agree stress can play real havoc ,biggest threat to people overall health ,Drs know this to ,hence why so many folk on Benzos etc .
      Years ago ailments lasted short time all fixed ,today it's totally different .the stress stays up because nothing seems to get put to right any longer ,no matter how many Drs visits for the same complaint ,so hey stress follows on .
      Not easy one to put right either ,causes anxiety to on top .Vicious circle we get into .goes on for years ,regardless .
      I totally understand where people on TT are speaking from .Get rid of the stress ,get rid of a lot of health issues ,easier said than done .

      Marqualler I only got High Blood pressure in past 2 yrs ,last time I had that was in the time I was having 2 babies 40 odd years ago ,now it's high ,all down to stress being up all the time ,so your right there ,then Drs say we must get this down ,well he'll yes let's do that ,but fix me on health front first ,be down in blink of an eye .BP solved ,stress gone .Makes you wonder about why so many Benzos given out these days for stress ,anxiety ,depression ,and why it's on the increase ,me I've got little trust these days .Got no stress outside of the T allergies and balance .
      So connection to stress definate yes to having raised BP ,you've mentioned here today .

      Leah you name it I tried it ,only thing is meditation ,but on really bad T days ,that goes out the window .
      We've been talking this on UK site I'm on only today .think Drs just not sure how to solving probs related to conditions ,hence you get pushed from pillar to post ,all time taking to a patient trying to get help ,then it's more stress ,we see it on TT every day of any given week ,and fair few have more going on besides the T .How often is that said .Think it scares fair few again ,not human if you don't react ,have to pinch my old man ,he's so laid back ,he reckons it's his service training well 18 yrs of being a marines wife ,thought I was somewhat that way until I got A bad virus and higher T following that bug .Just goes to show hey Leah .Going to work hard on things this next 12 months see if I can turn things around somewhat .Tried the sitting and waiting bit ,it's still no change.
      Well my moan over Leah ,sitting smiling .Hope next year will be kinder to you .
      Were come good sooner or later .Have a good evening if your planning the night out to see New year in .X
