The amygdala and hypothalamus initiate the stress response. The brain alerts the body of threats. Stress chemicals like cortisol and adrenaline boost heart rate, blood pressure, and energy.

Muscles tighten, cutaneous blood flow decreases, and digestion slows. The immune system also becomes suppressed, making us more susceptible to illness.

The stress reaction may be useful in certain circumstances, but too much or unmanaged stress can harm our physical and mental health.



Stress may cause chronic fatigue. Constant fatigue can be a common symptom of stress. Stress activates your body’s fight-or-flight reaction, causing exhaustion and other symptoms. Stress may also disrupt sleep, making you tired.

If you’re always tired and believe stress is the cause, control your stress and improve your sleep routine.

This might include practicing relaxation techniques, such as deep breathing or meditation, getting regular exercise, and making changes to your diet and sleep routine. Talk to a doctor or mental health professional for advice.

    Other children we have to let go to heaven unto the lord .
    There are also children that grow up & have there own children own life & understand how hard life is as an adult .
    Then there are children whom chose to go down the wrong path .
    Then they become a problem to the whole society , this has happened & alot of people as well & because of there children they get treated disrespectful.
    Our family has gone threw this first hand , so I have gone threw 3 weeks of being the house of detox & boy ill tell you if you think raising a baby is hard .
    Oh boy when they are adult babies this sure puts your integrity threw a very strong test .

    We have a very kind & quiet house for our good health , to heal from cancerin our house stress free inviroment , this means to never yell , or scream , or get right up in your face , or yell threw walls & doors ,never to bicker or fallow others around bickering, & our house has been for the most part quiet still but 1, 1/2 hours it gets loud & nerve racking integrity is not cheap it comes @ a price to keep calm & not to return yelling , just keep the calm quiet voice , wait until raining is done & ask are you done can I speak now without in teruptions , my finger waving back n forth , ( my reply ) we don’t yell we don’t call names , this is a rule if you fallow them you can stay other then that if this hurtful behavior continues I will be forced to call for help in turn you will have no where to go no one to ask because of your own actions , you need up on the streets sleeping in a tent in the snow temperature is around 32 °during the day & you had no food or water , threw the night you had nobody to keep you warm , why will you throw everything we are giving you away , this also is not cheap our water has been not working for 3 years , our vehicle needs repaired, we are on a single social security check to feed whole house hold , no assistance, now this is stress fist week was 2 hours sleep @ most ,
    2nd week 5 hours sleep @ most then a shift change for 1 or 2 people to rest while one sits & stays with individual tostay calm not make messes not to let others loose sleep , when a single person can be on guard it will never work almost to cause a divorce between people , until a shift change was put in place now 3 third week we all equal out to 7or9 hours rest before another one needs rest just to keep a person safe. Entering back into society looks the like the same person , but that is not a very true image for the adult child yet , that is why adult child is with parent @ the moment .
    Stress is delt with then is resolved in our house , that is life on a differnt level , stress is part of life , same as being born , & not living among the rest of living .
