Stress Q & A
How do I know when my stress requires treatment?
Nearly everyone feels stressed occasionally. Stress is even helpful in certain circumstances. For example, a stress response to danger could save your life.
If your stress is quite mild and happens only occasionally, it might be normal stress that doesn't require treatment. But if stress significantly interferes with your sleep, work, relationships, eating habits, or any other part of your life, it's time to ask for help.
What are the most common effects of stress?
Stress can hurt your physical and emotional health, and could even be deadly if you don't get the help you need. Some common effects of stress include:
Physical symptoms, like racing heart, stomach pain, or excessive perspiration
Irritability or being quick to anger
Weight loss or weight gain
Everyone experiences stress in their own way. Your stress symptoms might be worse at certain times, and virtually nonexistent at others. No matter what, stress that causes serious issues in your life is a problem that you need help with.
