Any stress: When we feel distressed, it is our own personal response to a life event, large or small. It can be affected by our past experiences, hormonal status, lack of sleep, hunger and # of other stressors ongoing. Remember the saying, that was the straw that broke the camels back! we tend to be social beings and feel better when someone listens to our concerns, even if they can't fix it. Tell someone.
