A good belly laugh sure does feel good! One of the reasons I like to what "Funniest Home Videos".
I know stress and anxiety have caused my adrenals to not function properly. My cortisol levels are totally reversed, which is one of the reasons my sleep is so poor.
I know I had problems with my "nerves" as a child growing up. My parents had problems, my mom drank, and my uncle molested me. Who wouldn't have trouble with anxiety? I was your typical hypocondriac. If I heard of someone being sick, then I was sure to be "sick" too. I'm glad I out grew that! Now its just reality! LOL.
Its interesting how you can "forget" alot of things like that about when you where young. I asked my mom about it the other day, and asked if the dr had given me anything for my nerves, cause I couldn't remember those details, and she said they had. So I guess it shouldn't be any surprise that it would come back to "haunt" me
