Stress Related Illness


noun: stress 

A state of mental or emotional strain or tension resulting from adverse or demanding circumstances.

Until recently psychological trauma was noted only in men after catastrophic wars. However, it is now recognised that Stress Related illness can result from such common occurrences as financial stress, the breakup of a significant relationship, a humiliating or deeply disappointing experience, the discovery of a life-threatening illness, a disabling condition or a motor accident. 

Traumatising events can take a serious emotional toll on those involved, even if the event did not cause physical damage.
It is not the event that determines whether something is traumatic to someone, but the individual's experience of the event and their ability to cope with it. And it is not predictable how a given person will react to a particular event.

For someone who is used to being in control of their emotions and life events, it may be surprising - even humiliating - to discover that something like financial struggle or job loss can be so debilitating.
