Question Do you think..? - September 28th 2009, 11:58 PM

dunno if i put this in the right thread :P but i tried anyways,Ive been so stressed out mentally lately,school,arguing with parents,voice in my head telling me to hate myself,not my conscience something differant that tells me not eat or throw up,tells me to cut,how horrible i am..ect..i dont know what it is but its really stressing me out a lot..like this voice was always kinda in the back of my head but i never hear it so much before...i was wondering since of all of this started ive also been getting sicker a lot more often physically like every month im catching a cold or viruse now,the doc want me tested for an immune system deficiancy or whatev its called,so my question was about this voice im always hearing in my head does it make sense or am i just crazy?? and also if your mentally stressed out do you think it can cause you to be sick more often physically as well?
not sure what to do anymore im so confused and my parents probly wouldnt believe me.


Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.

Being stressed out can definitely cause you to be sick more often. If I remember correctly when you're stressed out your body produces a hormone called cortisol. Cortisol has many effects on your body, one of which is weakening your immune system, which would cause you to get sick more often.
As for the voice, it can be caused by stress (or so my psychiatrist has told me), you should really talk to your doctor about it though. If it's a mental illness or something then the sooner the better right?

Being more stressed out chronically has shown via studies to generally lead to poorer immune system functioning and thus, increased chances of getting ill. The voice can be a symptom of psychosis but since you do admit to be very stressed out, it could also be a result of the stress. Was the voice there prior to you getting very stressed out or did it come after some of the stress gradually built up? If it's the second one, then try to relax and not think about the voice or what it may be saying. Hopefully it should make it subside.
