  1. I've had depression and stress since my early teens due to being bullied and a natural shyness with the anxiety that goes with it. I'm 30 now and have had daily stomach issues for about 17 years , in the last 4 or 5 months though it feels as I'm carrying a snooker ball in my stomach, it's painful and extremely uncomfortable, the best way to describe it is the stomach constantly being stuck in anxiety mode for months on end with no rest. I'm rambling lol but I'm getting a tad worried about it.

  2. I enjoyed this video on how stress affects your body. It really clearly show how strong stress is and how it can change your health.

    It is clear and well times. I posted on my blog http://www.retiretopurpose.com that discusses the issues of your second life in retirement. I cover these issues in my book “Retirement How not to end up Tired, Bored and Lonely” available on amazon
