“Stresses in My Life”

​People say old age brings on gray hair. In my experience, stress gives me my white hair. Stress can cause anxiety, make one sick, lead to loss of sleep, and lead to many health problems. Many patients suffer from headaches and high blood pressure just related to stress. As much as individuals try to avoid stress, it is inevitable.
