LOL! I can't imagine that I was stressed at 7 yrs old! My Mom and Dad were still married and things were fine, I didn't love school, but didn't want to avoid it either.
Although I can tell you that any time I had major stress in my life, I had a relapse or resurgence of symptoms that knocked me on my derriere! Many of those times made me bed ridden for up to a couple of months, but then I would start to come back - just not to the point I was before I was bed ridden.
The last time I relapsed I was terribly stressed. I was still with my last husband, he had been in a terrible accident were his arm was basically amputated at the elbow - it was reattached, but we had 4 weeks in the hospital (a 4 hour drive) and I was home schooling my 2 kids, had a working farm, and a step son that was a real trouble maker at that time. Stress became my middle name. One year after he had his arm reattached, he was diagnosed with a very aggressive form of Lymphoma, so that started a 3 year battle. It ended with him losing his life and I was 30- 35 lbs underweight, malnourished, and had so many severe symptoms that I spent a short time in a wheel chair, & house bound. Things got worse before they got better.
The rest of my story is on this site... all over it! LOL! So I won't repeat that, but yes - each time I got stressed, I got worse.
The best news is that my story has a happy ending - no more active symptoms and I have a very wonderful, loving compassionate man as a husband now who saw me through 13 years of really tough times with these diseases!
