I was pooping (tmi) every twenty minutes the morning of my wedding.  I actually considered that I had food poisoning but I’m sure it wasn’t the case.  I also get heart palpitations and stop sleeping. Occasionally it makes me feel dehydrated even if I am drinking liquids and my jaw tenses up.  I HATE STRESS.

I get tense to the point where I have terrible body aches, I clench my jaw and grind my teeth, I get diarrhea, can’t eat, can’t sleep, and oh yeah…I have panic attacks, so with those, I have all of the above, plus I get heart palpitations and feel shaky and lightheaded. I am NOT AWESOME at handling stress.

I stop eating. I just do not have any desire to eat. I started a new, very intense job (the first in my field) and the past 2 days I’ve worked I could only choke down 1 granola bar in 12 hours. I also break out in an awful rash all over my chest and neck and arms, similar to hives, but my DR called it something else. I also lose lots of sleep b/c my mind races over and over on the thing that’s making me stressed. Ugh.

My vision starts acting up… I actually went to my eye doctor twice in a two week span because I was adamant that I had the wrong contact lens prescription, but he said I’m probably just stressed.. It was about a month before my wedding.. Then once on the honeymoon, I was fine.

I also get no appetite when I’m stressed.

Eczema, face breaks out, wisdom teeth flare up, more suspectable to night terrors too. So no decent sleep either.

Mainly acne, it’s very frustrating.  I’m not engaged yet, but I’m worried about having horrible skin on my wedding day.

The second I start to feel any stress at all, I stop eating. I just get super worked up and food is the first thing I forget about. It’s not that I sit there looking at food and just don’t feel like eating, I completely forget about it. My most recent round of final exams, I didn’t eat one single thing for four days. Sooo bad. :/

And then once I’m no longer stressed, I get sick (probably from not eating).

When I feel really stressed out I can’t eat or sleep and I feel really sick and I cry. I also lash out at people and I don’t mean to and then I cry again. But to feel better I draw, call someone to talk to or watch a funny movie or something funny on tv. 

I forgot to add that for some reason I like to clean and blast my music when I’m stressed. I have no clue why.
