Stress Really Kills

There are so many ways stress can kill you. Increased levels of cortisol, which is regularly referred to as the stress hormone. Raised cortisol levels stand in the way with learning and memory, lower immune function and also bone density, and as well increased high blood pressure, cholesterol and heart disease.

Chronic stress is risky/dangerous to health and can guide you to an early death from cancer heart disease, ,and other health problems. It does not matter if the stress comes from major life occurrence in life or from minor problems. They both can be deadly.

Whether it is minor stress, or major stress, it does not matter, stress period isn’t good for your health. It may seem like stressing isn’t harming your body, just because you don’t realize it. You May be thinking that illness is entirely the blame for those irritating but constant headaches, the very frequent insomnia, or even reduced efficiency at work. But stress can most definitely be the cause.

Hello everyone!!! I hope everyone is having a great Tuesday. I want to talk to you guys about stress. Stress KILLS!! It recently took a good friend of mine, and my sisters as well. It is really no joke, You know you hear these things but it doesn’t really hit you until it happens to you or someone close to you. She was only 26yrs old so beautiful, young, and full of life!!! She also left behind her beautiful baby girl, she’s only 4yrs old. She doesn’t understand at all. How do you tell a child that their mom is never coming back home! This is so hard for us all, it caught us all off guard! She was actually just with me, she was so happy I got me a place. She was suppose to help me decorate and all, but I guess God had other plans. I just wish she could have stayed with her daughter a little longer, you know? So many people are so shocked about this happening to her, she had a heart attack. It really doesn’t matter the age at all, anyone can catch a heart attack. Honestly, I’m so hurt about this happening, but she was so stressed out. Stress isn’t good for no one, and I’ve been telling so many people about my friend’s Marckeyshia death, and that stress kills, I have to also remind myself that. Dealing with major depression and anxiety, I need to constantly remind myself of this.

Everyday I remind myself that stress can kill you, It’s no joke at all. Take care of yourself and stress less.

Marckeyshia was a sweet person in and out, there was nothing about her you wouldn’t like. She was a great mother to her daughter, she always kept a smile on her face. You wouldn’t have never thought she was so stressed out, but she was. What makes it so hard for me, I was just with her a day before she died. We talked, we laughed, and we even cried a little. I just wish I could have taken all her pain away. I wish she could have lived longer, not for me, but for her precious daughter. This is a hard one for my sisters, and I, as well as her sisters and brothers. I’m praying for them all. She struggled, she was so stressed, God knew what was best. Marckeyshia Monique Washington I love you!!!!! I promise I will look out for your baby girl, I promise that if she need anything and I have it, she have it!! I know I can never be mom, but I promise to never let her forget you, and i will do the best I can for her, because right now she doesn’t understand that mother is not coming back. She said to a aunt, my mama died, she always dying. She know her mom has passed out before. (tears) I can’t stop the tears, we all have to keep our self together though.

This is truly a wake up call for us all, her sisters and brothers, as well as my sisters and I. Stress is real and depression is real. I’ve been knowing that it doesn’t matter how old you are, anyone can catch a heart attack from stress or just a heart attack period, but this happening has really shown me it’s no joke at all. It is in fact real, and being stressed out can actually kill you. Everyday is a reminder for me, because I deal with anxiety and major depression, so stress is in there so I wrote down some ways to help manage stressful times. Stress can affect your body, your thoughts, your feelings, and your behavior. Stress kills, it’s real. If you recognize stress symptoms, it can help you to know the symptoms and how to manage them. Stress that’s not checked on, can definitely contribute to many health problems, like high blood pressure, obesity, and diabetes. Taking care of yourself is a must, stress kills, and believe me it’s real.

I found out along time ago, that it doesn’t matter how old you are, you can most definitely catch a heart attack. It has no age, and if you aren’t taking care of yourself, or have a sickness, than you’re at a higher risk for a heart attack. Losing a close friend is so hard I’ve been being strong as much as I can. I know death has no age, or a heart attack but she was so young, beautiful, and a great mother. When you’ve been knowing someone for so long, and talked everyday, or saw each other everyday, It makes it even harder. I know she’s in a better place now, no more pain, and no more stress. I know she wouldn’t want us stressed, or in pain because she’s gone, she would want us to live. Even though It’s hard I will do just that and do my best because stress is real, stress really does kill. It took my friend. I promise to be there for her 4yr old daughter, anyway possible. I promise to always show her pictures of her mother all the time, and to let her know mom is looking down on you and to make her proud. I promise to be there for her through the hard times, and the sad times, because when she start growing up she’s going to have questions, she might even cry at times, because a little girl losing her mother is a hard thing to deal with. I can never take the place of you, Marckeyshia, but I will be there with her every step of the way, me, as well as my sisters, and your sisters. She have all of us.

Fly high baby girl, Marckeyshia!!! We love you and most definitely going to miss you!!! We promise to be there for your baby girl.

This year has been rough, so many deaths, so many losses. But I have to keep pushing, I have my son who needs me, now my friend’s daughter, and I promise to push harder. Stress is real and it’s no joke people, if you find yourself stressed out, take deep breathes, find out what’s good to relieve stress, get some help. There are many things you can do to relieve stress, I have a list of things down below. Check them out once you are done reading. It took me awhile to actually write this, because It’s all still fresh, the pain is still here. Lost a good friend on, 7/17/2019 and also a classmate before, life is so short you all need to enjoy life to the fullest because you never know when it’s your last time here. Smile, laugh, love, and enjoy your love ones. Remember, don’t stress over things you can’t change and definitely don’t sweat the minor things, stress is real and stress kills. Down below are ways to help manage stressful times. I loss a good friend to it, plus she had diabetes. I know she was stressed out, being a single mother, It is rough but I wish I could have one more day with her, to let her know like I did before, stressing isn’t good, I love you take care of yourself please, or If I can help with anything you know you can come or call me at anytime. Marckeyshia was just like me though, she just didn’t want to feel like a bother, or hated to ask others for something no matter how close you were, you just don’t want to bother others. I am the exact same way we can be close kin, and I would feel like a bother. No matter how close we are, we could talk everyday all day, and if I need something, I wouldn’t ask. I don’t know why or why if I know for a fact that person would help me, why wouldn’t I ask. That’s just me, I don’t know why.

That’s what a lot of people tell me, that they don’t understand why I do that, why I never tell them I needed the help, or need the help. I couldn’t tell you why. I just don’t like to feel like a bother. But I would just be worried and more worried on the inside. Really driving myself to a migraine on the inside, because I need the help but would really hate to ask, really hate to be a bother because times is hard for everyone. That’s stressing. This is why it is good to talk about everything, as long as it’s someone you trust, I would really sit and talk to them. If it’s someone you trust and it’s someone you know wouldn’t mind helping you out, I’d say go for it that’s one less of stress. Down below are some ways to relieve stress, and ways to help with stress. There’s so many ways to relieve stress, for every stressful moment, in your life. Take a look, try them out and tell me what you think, it’s not good to stress, it’s not good for your health. So, we are all going to do what’s best for our health which is stress less, always pray, and know that everything is going to be okay. Know that you’re blessed and you have no time to be stressed.

To blessed to be to stressed.

Ok, indeed stress symptoms can affect your body, your thoughts and as well as your feelings, and yes, even your behavior as well. Being able to recognize these stress symptoms can actually help you manage them. Stress that’s left unchecked can lead to many health problems, such as heart disease, high blood pressure, obesity, and as well as diabetes.

If you’re having stress symptoms, there are many ways and steps to take to help manage your stressful moments, and doing so can also have health benefits. Research stress management strategies such as:

Doing, and getting physical activity

Practicing relaxation methods such as breathing, meditation, yoga, tai chi or massage.

Maintaining a sense of humor

Spending time with family and friends

Making time for hobbies, such as reading a book, writing, or listening to music

Line up to find active ways to manage your stress.

Inactive ways to manage stress — such as watching television, surfing the Internet or playing video games — may seem relaxing, but they may be increasing your stress over the long term.

Make sure to get plenty of sleep and eat a healthy, balance diet. Avoid excess caffeine and alcohol and tobacco use, and the use of illegal substances.

When to seek help

If you’re not sure if it’s stress the cause or if you’ve taken steps to control your stress but those symptoms continue, make sure to see your doctor. Your doctor might want to check you for other causes. Or even think about seeing a therapist or a professional counselor, who can help you identify sources of your stress and learn new coping skills.

It’s best to learn new coping strategies about stress symptoms. Stress symptoms, is a silent killer take care of yourself and know the signs and symptoms of stress. Do what’s best for your health, and don’t stress. It is indeed true, to not sweat the small stuff because stress can most definitely kill you.

Also, I hope you guys are having a beautiful, and blessed day today and I hope you have enjoyed what you’ve read. If so, can you please like and follow for more. Thanks in advance, and Part 2 on stress really kills coming up soon.

Mental Health: A Guide To Understanding A-little About Mental Illnesses

There’s many different conditions that are recognized as mental illnesses. Down below are the more common types… welcome to a way to understanding mental illnesses.

What is Mental Illness? Mental illnesses are conditions that affects a person’s thinking, mood, feeling, behavior, such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, or schizophrenia. Such conditions may be occasional or long-term and long-lasting (chronic) and affect someone’s ability to relate to others and function each day.

It is when someone lacks the ability to manage day to day tasks and/or control their behavior so that basic physical and emotional needs are threatened or unmet.

What is Mental Health? Mental health includes our emotional, our social well being, and psychological. It affects how we think, feel, and act. It also helps determine how we handle stress, relate to others, and to make healthy choices. Your mental health is important at every stage of life from childhood and adolescence through adulthood.

Even though the terms are regularly used interchangeably, poor mental health and mental illness are not the same things. A person can experience very poor mental health and even be diagnosed with a mental illness. Otherwise, a person diagnosed with a mental illness can experience periods of physical, mental well-being, and social well-being.

Why is mental health very important for overall health?

Physical and mental health are both equally important elements of overall health. Mental illness such as depression, increases the risk for many types of physical health problems, particularly long-lasting conditions like stroke, heart disease, and type 2 diabetes. Equivalently, the presence of chronic conditions can most definitely increase the risk for mental illness.

Can your mental health change?

Yes, your mental health can change overtime yes… most definitely. It’s important to remember that a person’s mental health can in fact change over time, depending on many factors. When the commands placed on a person exceed their resources and their coping abilities, their mental health could be a testimony. It could be impacted.

If you have a mental health condition, you’re not alone. 1 in 5 U.S. adults experiences some form of mental illness in any given year. Across America, 1 in 25 adults is living with a serious mental health condition such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, or long-term recurring major depression.

Just as with other serious illnesses, mental illness is not your fault or that of that of the people around you, but the widespread of misunderstandings about mental illness still remains. Sadly. Many people don’t seek treatment or remain unaware that they’re symptoms could be connected to a mental health condition. Some people expect a person with a serious mental illness to look visibly different from others, and they might tell someone who does not “look ill” to “get over it” through willpower. These misconceptions add to the challenges of living with a mental health condition.

Every year people overcome the challenges of mental illness to do things that they enjoy doing. Through developing and following a treatment plan, you can suddenly reduce many of your symptoms. People with mental health conditions, can and actually do pursue higher education, succeed in their careers, and have relationships and friends. Mental illness can slow us down sometimes, but we don’t have to let it stop us right?!

Mental Health: Get The Help And Treatment You Need… You Can Beat This!!

Depression, bipolar disorder, and schizophrenia are just some severe mental illnesses. All of them can be severe. Different emotions and feelings, and your thoughts are constantly racing. Dark emotions and feelings, and you feel like every thought is actually real. Feeling guilty and worthless everyday. Feeling like life just isn’t for you, you isolate yourself from everything and everyone, because you feel like no one understands you or what you’re going through. Or maybe…. you’re feeling like you’re alone, feeling like nothing nothing or no one can help you…

But that’s not true…

You are not alone. I have suffered from major depression and anxiety for so many years. More than 8 years. And I have suffered by myself and also I didn’t get treatment quick either, I suffered alone for along time… and I promise you it just gets worse and worse. It’s HELL. Everyday is a repeated nightmare. Get help.

There’s treatments that’ll help you. Don’t sit there thinking things a get better by themselves because it won’t! Trust me. You can beat this, and you can start off by seeking help and receiving treatment. You’ll thank me later… I promise you. You don’t have to be in despair everyday because there’s therapy, and counseling as well. Always remember you are not alone. Mental illnesses isn’t something you can run from or be prepared for… it just happens.

Anybody’s a victim. It just comes without a warning, and if you haven’t experienced it… you’re very lucky! Very blessed. I don’t wish mental illness on no one, you hear me?! It’s like you’re not the old you. Sometimes you feel like “what’s wrong with you?” Or you say to yourself “you need another brain!” Sometimes it feels like you’re going insane!

Mental Health: Looks Can Most Definitely Be Deceiving… Don’t Believe It

A person can have everything they could ever imagine. Their life is so perfect, and you never hear anything negative about them. They could be living in a 3 story house, beautiful kids, and a wife/husband.

That husband could be facing unexplainable emotions and feelings. He’s probably ashamed because he’s the man of the house, and men are suppose to be strong. Right?!


A person could be the happiest wife, prettiest wife….

With a big paying job… and on the inside, when that person is by themselves…

Guess what?! At night that person could be struggling with depression, and/or anxiety attacks. That person might be fighting for their life on the inside.

When that person is by themself, and home alone… they probably just sit crying inside. You never know what a person is going through. You never know what type of demons a person could be fighting on a daily basis. You don’t know what type of emotions or/and feelings this person face everyday. They feel like they’re dying on the inside. Thoughts and emotions rushing through your mind, feeling hopeless, feeling like nothing is even worth it. You’re just so unhappy. But you pretend well because you don’t know who to trust… or who to tell.

Mental Health: To Those Who’ve Never Even Experienced Mental Illness… I’m Here To Tell You All About It

What is Mental Illness?

Mental illnesses are brain-based conditions that affect thinking, emotions, and behaviors. We all have brains— so since we all have brains, having some kind of mental health issue during your life is very common.

Us, who have a mental illness, we can’t help that our brains has changed in a way which makes it hard to think, feel, or act in ways that we want to. Experiencing extreme and unexpected changes in mood- like feeling more sad or worried than normal. Some mental illnesses makes it hard to communicate with someone who’s talking to them, or not being able to think clearly, or having bizarre thoughts to help explain weird feelings we’re having.

Clinical depression. The persistent feeling of sadness or loss of interest that’s characterizes major depression can lead to a range of behavioral and physical symptoms. These may include changes in sleep, appetite, energy level, concentration, self-esteem, or daily behavior. Depression can also be associated with thoughts of suicide.

Anxiety disorder. A mental health disorder characterized feelings of worry, anxiety, or fear that are strong enough to interfere with daily life. Examples of anxiety is panic attacks, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and post-traumatic stress disorder.

Bipolar disorder. A disorder linked with episodes of mood swings ranging from depressive lows to manic highs.

Schizophrenia. A disorder that effects a person’s ability to think, feel, and behave clearly.

Autism. A serious developmental disorder that impacts the ability to communicate and interact.

Post traumatic stress disorder. A disorder in which a person has difficulty recovering after experiencing or witnessing a terrifying event. The condition may last months or years, with triggers that bring back memories of the trauma accompanied by intense emotional and physical reactions.

Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder. A chronic condition including attention difficulty, hyperactive, and impulsiveness. It often starts in childhood and can persist in adulthood. Symptoms include limited attention and hyperactivity.

Just to name some severe, mental illnesses.

Mental Health: When Major Depression Makes You Lose Hope, Remember Don’t Give Up, There Is Hope

Losing hope from major depression can make life very difficult. It can make every moment, every part, of life feel impossible.

No matter what your situation is, don’t lose hope and don’t lose focus. The belief that your life can and will get better is a essential part of recovery from major depression. Happily, hope a renewable resource.

Everyday won’t be a good day, some days are worse than others, but hope guides us through the darkest times. Without it, we stay mired in despair. Hope allows us to believe that change is very possible— that even in the midst of that relapse, you’ll find yourself again. Hope is what gives us the strength to right back up and try again.

What is hope exactly, and how to sustain it?

It’s a character trait that helps us thrive. The desire to attain a certain end and the belief it is very much possible to attain it.

Hope relies on what psychologists call “agency”— the certainty that you can deploy control over your actions and your environment.

Optimism also plays a big role— the confidence that things will somehow work out for the better. “Hope” is a combination of lessening suffering and psychic pain and building more positive assumptions for the future.

When You’re Angry/Stressed/Depressed… There’s Healthy Ways To Calm Yourself. These Techniques Are Guaranteed To Help….

Introduction


Calm yourself. Take a deep breath. Hold it for a second, then exhale slowly. Breathing and physical activities are one way of relaxing. Feel more relaxed? Here I’m going to teach you different ways to relax your body, mind, and soul. When you’re relaxed, it helps to ease stress. It can also relieve depression, anxiety, and sleep problems.

We all have our days. Some days are worse than others, leaving you stressed out… with so much to worry about.

We all face stressful situations throughout our lives, ranging from minor annoyances like traffic jams to more serious worrying, such as a loved one dying, or a love one’s grace illness. No matter what the cause stress floods your body with hormones. Your heart pounds, your breathing speeds up, and your muscles tense.

Relaxing…

  • To relax it means to calm your body, your mind, or even both.
  • When relaxed, it quiets your mind, it makes you feel more peaceful and calm. Your body also reacts when you’re relaxed. To make a example, your muscles might be less tense and more flexible.
  • There’s so many ways to relax. You might actually find one or more ways that helps you to be calm, that’ll help calm you down, and feel at peace.

Mental Health: Don’t Worry About What Others Say About Your Mental Illness

Worry Less Live More

You’re not to blame for your mental illness, neither are you to blame, for the thoughts and feelings that comes right along with it. It’s not your fault, it’s a medical result. Something you don’t want but truly and honestly, you gets no choice… it’s remorseless. It also affects your behavior, and concentration, making it difficult to do the simplest things.

When it comes to mental illness… people say the darnedest things!! With no kind of understanding.

Mental illness is sometimes debilitating, embarrassing, and really really misunderstood. Many people just don’t understand. What’s the most insensitive thing someone’s said to you about your mental illness??

I’ve heard things like “I had depression and I got over mine.” Really?! Yes! How harsh is that right? I’ve also heard, “it’s time for you to grow up now,” or “maybe you need a hobby,” wow right? I’m serious. I’m telling you the truth. It’s devastating. That was horrible to say to someone with a mental illness.

But no matter what, don’t let such ignorance get to you. People need to think before speaking because, you never know what someone is going through. Sometimes you don’t have to say nothing. Your presence could be enough. Imagine a friend comes to see you in the hospital, don’t know why but, when you tell him/her they reply, “At least it’s not cancer,” enough for you to slap them (lol) just kidding, just a little humor…. but yeah it makes you angry because mental illness is just as serious as other physical illnesses. You can to die from mental illness just like you can die from a physical condition.

Everyone is “fighting a battle you know nothing about.” So try to be kind… you won’t die from being kind. You can’t judge a book by it’s cover is indeed a very true saying.
