When we are under stress, our bodies put out stress hormones, adrenal hormones . And, then we have to detox these hormones so they dont build up in the body. Being a Lymie and already being toxic, stress hormones are just another toxin added to the already existing ones. To make it more simple, the stress is just adding to your toxin load. Your body is overloaded, also makes you irritable like you said. Hope that makes sense. D Congrats on the new home!
