“The catch in our breath when we are startled, the tension in our guts when we are worried, the exhaustion we feel from our anxiety, are all as much a part of our illnesses as are the bacteria & viruses which attack us and can, in fact be just as debilitating, just as deadly.”
“SEENE MEIN JALAN, DIL MEIN TUFAN SA KYUN HAI
IS SHAHAR MEIN, HAR SHAKS PARESHAN SA KYUN HAI ?”
Life is full of ironies, esp. in the realm of health. It is often difficult to predict which person will become sick & which one will remain healthy. Life can be stressful. Everyone faces a different mix of demands & adjustments in life & any of us may breakdown, if the going gets tough enough.
“TODAY’S STRESS CAN BE TOMORROW’S VULNERABILITY”
People are not disturbed by situations per se, but by the ways they appraise and react to situations. In stress, a demand exceeds a person’s coping abilities, resulting in reactions such as disturbances of cognition, emotion & behavior that can adversely affect well-being. Trauma freezes people in time. Years after a trauma is over, people are still living it.
