It's true emotional stress causes phsyical pain

Friday, February 14, 2014

I don't want to be a downer but as I am losing my 'Guinie, my body simple aches. I know they say that when you suffer emotional stress it affects your system. I am doing everything I can to remain healthy through this stress but am finding that my digestive system is all off again so I put myself back on some of the meds I was bragging about getting off. I hate being a whimp. I used to pride myself on being a strong person. but I am not going to blame myself right now, I am just going to go on the meds and take care of me the best I can. The vet kept Guinie overnight. We are taking the dogs in for their check up and at the time will find out more about Guinie. I will first get out and walk the dogs.

DH and I watched Gravity and neither of us thought it was very good. Sandra did some good acting but not our cup of tea.

Happy Valentine's Day. After we get though the vet visit we are going for a late lunch with dear friends.
Hope you all have a great day.
Thanks for your many thoughts and hugs.

    Sorry for your stress, I know it hurts me. I thought I had fibromyalgia. Today I realized my arms and legs hurt after an hour long bicycle ride. Then I remembered I lifted weights yesterday. I hope your meds help. emoticon

  Stress does all kings of things to the human body including pain. I have been down that road many times. No Fun. I hope your little Kitty won't have to suffer that much. Also her Mommy. Take your meds and do what you need to do to get through this. Praying for the both of you. Happy Valentines Day. Hope that You had a great lunch with your friends too. God Blessings Always. Elaine.

    Losing a beloved pet really is like losing a child, don't begrudge your emotions.. Make sure your last days with her are special and remember the good times when she was healthy and hold those thoughts.

    I'm so sorry about the sick kitty, and hope she will feel better.
It is so easy to love our cats, and it is really hurts to see them suffer.
Be strong and take good care of yourself too.

    So sorry about your dear kitty. Stress really affects the body. My DD has RA and when life gets stressful she has flare ups, despite eating well and taking her meds.
Hang in there and try to enjoy what time you have left with her.

  My dear, you are not a wimp! Not at all. It DOES hurt to see someone like a furbaby fading.

HUGS and prayers.

    Extreme stress definitely has an effect on the body. I guess all we can do to counter that is take extreme care of ourselves during those stressful times.
Sorry about your Guinie emoticon

    I'm so sorry, Sallie... The pain of losing a beloved pet cannot fail, unfortunately, to manifest in one's body, sadly - especially in the digestive tract, which is home to such a rich supply of neurotransmitter chemicals. You're doing a very wise thing by attempting to divert yourself with some movies, though - I wish you peace.

    Stress absolutely affects every system in our bodies.
I have personally experienced a 'broken heart' (not literally, of course) after a major tragic event.
So sorry about dear Guinivere.

    You are not a wimp. Emotional stress is the most powerful force that I know of. Good or bad stress, the same effect takes effect.

Right now I am in chemo and my emotions are on overdrive. This situation is classified as terminal so it takes nothing to set me off reminiscing about all sorts of things.

Keep on trucking.
