    Exact opposite for me. Stress keeps the colds and flu away. Then when vacation time comes and I don't have any stress on me, my immune system lets it guards down and without fail I end up getting sick on vaca icon_mad.gif

    I get sick when stressed to the hilt. Always a good indicator to slow things down and examine what's going on when I know I shouldn't otherwise be sick...

    stress and weather/barometric pressure changes are two of the biggest immune system disruptions. those are about the only times of the year where I catch anything, so I've learned to go extra on the Vitamins C, E, and zinc when the seasons change or something ridiculous at work approaches.

    I don't let stress do things to me; having this or that reaction or overreaction cause I let myself is unnecessary. If I do have a strong emotion to deal with, I let it come out and I feel it and let it change my thoughts, but I don't go with those thoughts. I let it all go as soon as their emotions anchors broken. I when I confront stress, it's me and an outside force that can't harm me. Then I kick my ass all over the gym and look at me now! icon_twisted.gificon_twisted.gificon_twisted.gif

    I don't get sick when I stress. But when I do stress (which is kinda often...**cute sexy massage**), my skin tends to break out in a bit of acne. icon_confused.gif
