    Anyone Else Get "Post-Stress Sickness"?

    Post  Paeter on June 25th 2018, 11:22 am

    Ever since High School, when I would often get sick the Monday after closing night on a big play I was in, I've noticed that my body kinda collapses right after making it through a stressful period.

    I think I just came through one. Having out of town visitors the entire week of E3, plus half the week after while I'm scrambling to catch up, put more on my plate than I thought it would. And over this weekend I started getting a weird stomach, developed a sore in my mouth and got a nice big pimple. All signs, for me at least, that I've been under stress.

    I'm curious if anyone else gets any kind of stress sickness or physical symptoms during or after a period of stress.

    My wife and I both find that when we've been pushing really hard with work, and then we finally have a holiday, our bodies immediately say "Ok. Now you're finally relaxing. I can stop being a hero." and then we get bad colds.

    Similar concept, perhaps.

    That's the one! Makes for a great day off, huh? Finally some vacation! Now watch it get swallowed by Niquil!

    Same here.
    Particularly after I turned 40.
    I have noticed though that things improve if I take a multivitamin pill every day, all year long. Now I'm only very tired after extreme busy-ness or stress, but no longer sick!

    That's probably not a bad idea Katja.

    Crap, yeah. I've got a bottle of those in the bottom of a drawer in the bathroom. Better go dig it out, I guess.

    I would've responded to this sooner but I was too tired.

    Is that a thing, yet? I'm ready to believe it is. We live in the future!

    I think it has been a thing for several years already with Amazon. But maybe only in certain urban areas? I don't know exactly...

    It doesn't appear to be available yet. They did run a trial in the UK.
