Stress can do such bizarre things to people.

For the past few months, I’ve had numerous things running through my head driving me almost mentally insane.

For me my body just reacts like you wouldn’t believe.

The smallest things can stress me out, and people just don’t talk about their reaction to stress.

I for one when stressed, have hair falling out of my head, I can’t tolerate milk, insomnia with ability to fall asleep is beyond 2 hours.

HOW TO REDUCE IT?

NATURE! I’ve decided to help with stress by going for runs and walks.
