Stress (Definition)

Stress affects most people in some way. Acute (sudden, short-term) stress leads to rapid changes throughout the body. Almost all body systems (the heart and blood vessels, immune system, lungs, digestive system, sensory organs, and brain) gear up to meet perceived danger. These stress responses could prove beneficial in a critical, life-or-death situation.

Recently my hands have been shaking when I'm writing or when im typing , I have been stressed lately so I dont know if that could be the reason .

Tricky: without an exam, I can only give general information therea re a lot of reasons for hand shaking and a simple exam can figure out which are possibly there in your case.

Hi, was wondering if u have borderline personality if u r under major stress if u can have schizophrenic type thoughts? Thanks

Yes: You are insightful to realize this. Major stress can have major impact on all people, but the fragility of a personality like Borderline makes it even worse. The word originally related to the border between neurotic and psychotic styles of living. I hope a good specialist therapist is involved to help recover the better state of adjustment and more major stress can be avoided. Best! ...Read more

Pre-term birth and low birth weight are the most often seen results of maternal stress in pregnancy. In stressed moms (esp in 1st trimester), placentas make more corticotropin-releasing hormone that regulates length of pregnancy & fetal maturation. Relaxation needed. ...Read more

I have post traumatic stress disorder, if i try acid will it set me into a flashback? I also have been diagnosed with bipolar disorder and borderline personality disorder as well.

Reasons why I should not try acid?

Why ask for trouble?: I am puzzled by your question --- why would you want to use a drug that might bring on flashbacks or other symptoms. Some people have good acid experiences but you would just be asking for trouble by taking a drug that commonly produces flashbacks and other symptoms. ...Read more
