17 Signs of Stress That Go Too Well Together

Are You Stressed Or Simply Having a Bad Day?

Do you ever sit there wondering why the hell you feel just so, well, shit?... Everyday.... All day?

The truth is we know that we have been stressed for some time, life is hard, at times I have even wondered how we have ever survivied- I almost haven't!! But, every day, you try your hardest, getting up everyday, turning up in your life to try and be the best, the most happiest version of yourself.............. But wait!!!!!!

Is that really me?

Is that you?​

Do feel like most days you can barely get out of bed? That every ounce of your body is like wavering through thick treacle?

I know just how you feel!!​

Seriously, hauling my ass through the life that I have had has been a ball of stress in itself, I just thought how I felt was normal, until I saw the doctor one day, wow, I said...

" What, Life Isn't Meant
To Be This Sad??"

So, basically, here is the crack, stress is good, in some cases, we know this, but when you are waking up feeling like you have been dragged through a hedge backwards, like a double decker bus is running over you every minute of the day as you clock watch to go to bed....


I think you better do a check list against these sign and symptoms of stress....

  • Irritable & Easily Wound Up
  • Angry
  • Overwhelmed
  • Anxious
  • Crying For No Reason
  • Nervous & Afraid
  • Racing Thoughts
  • Can't Relax or Switch Off
  • No Fun, Can't Enjoy Yourself

  • Hard To Laugh Or Smile
  • Feeling Depressed
  • No Interest In Anything
  • Lack Of Self Care (hair/makeup)
  • Loneliness Even With People
  • Wanting To Run Away & Hide
  • Feeling Numb & Intimidated

If you are saying "YES" to more than 2 of the symptoms on this list then the chances are that you have severe stress and borderline anxiety, please do not worry, this is not your fault and not only is it extremely common, but it is also very manageable with the right know how and tools to support you.

I know that you probably are feeling anxious and scared right now, but trust me, this will pass and I give you a huge applause as recognition and acceptance is the first step in any self healing. ​
