Just wondering if anyone else has noticed how often this illness goes after the Type A personality? We know that no matter what the personality that stress makes it worse now. I know exactly when this all started and it was when I was in complete overload with a very ill Dad, my Mom just passed away, I had the worst flu ever, plus I was trying to work full time, be a mom, a wife...the list goes on and on. It was all in February, 1998. My body finally just said "no" and this awful illness set in. Does this sound familiar to anyone else? Can you pinpoint the exact time, pretty much and were you in overload? I still don't know how to "let it go" and just relax.
