The Physical Effects of Stress and Tension
(Las Vegas, NV)
Where to begin? Actually, I can almost pin-point it.
1. 8 years ago I began to develop a reflux to certain "fatty" foods after poor eating habits for years including excessive carbs as well as late night eating.
2. Realizing that working in the casino business as well as having a gambling problem (excessive) was quite possibly the cause of the digestive problems.
3. Neck and shoulders tightening about 5 years later after continuing my habits, but reducing them a bit.
4. Continued poor eating habits, gambling, and feelings of depression and regret for the following years have led to Anxiety symptoms, nausea, light-headedness, feelings of fatigue and "flu" symptoms, as well as poor digestion, sleep and an overall tense feeling.
Stress and Anxiety will consume you unless - UNLESS you decide to put yourself FIRST! I want my life back and my health back. Exercise, diet, stopping the gambling and a change in career have become my focus. Not sure what will happen next, but it does not seem like it can get much worse. The key? Identify the cause - address it and then get rid of it forever! These are my thoughts ~ J.R. (Las Vegas, Nevada)
