Can you get sick from stress?

Whenever I have a really stressful event coming up, I get sick. And the bigger the event, the sicker I become. It has happened to me several times, culminating with one super illness about two years ago. My band was slated to play at a graduation party. We had been practicing for about two years, and hadn't added anything new recently. So no reason for stressing, right? But, sure enough, about two weeks before the show, my throat closed up with such bad tonsillitis that I had trouble eating yogurt. I had to go to the doctor and get antibiotics just to be able to swallow saliva! So, my question, is it possible to make yourself physically sick from stress? Or are these times in my life just coincidences?

Sudden Extreme High Anxiety

Help! I don't want to live on benzos, but get so sketched that I can't even leave my house. I'm living a very depressed lifestyle-not good. Much of this has to do with the fact that Im mentally & physically disabled. This is especially difficult when I've been diagnosed bi-polar, yet every anti-depressant and / or mood stabilizer that I've taken ( over the past 30 yrs.- I am currently 53), has either not worked, didn't work & had weird side effects or worked for what seemed to be awhile & then pretty much wore off & I was right back to where I started from - stuck, dismayed & floating in a "black hole void". I'm wondering if I might possibly be ADD & was never properly diagnosed. Is there a difinitive test for Adult ADD & if so, please let me know what your thoughts are either way. Thank you!

Is social disconnection the answer?

We all stress out sometimes.  Some more than others.  I find that a lot of stress comes mostly from other people in our lives.  Does anyone else think that stress from communicating via text or facebook could be the main stressor in someone's life?  And is there anyone that has ditched the book-of-face account or phone and felt less stress??
