Stress comes in many forms, including:

- Personal injury or illness
- Death of a loved one

Though most of us cope with these stressful events, occasionally the pressure and tension can build up to the point where the stress in your life starts to adversely affect your physical and/or emotional health. If left untreated, chronic stress can cause symptoms such as fatigue, anxiety, sleep disturbances, irritability and even poor memory and reduced concentration. Stress can be a contributing factor in illnesses such as peptic ulcers, depression, headaches/ migraines, dermatitis, asthma and Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS).
