    Stress causes each person to cope, manage or behave in the way their mind or body allows them too, it has sometimes caused both mental and physical breakdowns and it can also vary on recovery too. Each and every reaction is normal and how each individual gets through this time and begins to recover, its all a lot easier to go through and recover from if good support is being given to those going through the process.

    Psychology -> Physiological and psychological effects of prolonged or intense arousal Physiological and psychological effects of prolonged or intense arousal Stress is the process of adjusting to/or dealing with circumstances that disrupt, or threaten to disrupt, a person's physical or psychological functioning. Stress involves a relationship between people and their environments, more specifically, between stressors and stress reactions. Stressors are events and situations, such as an exam, to which people must react. Stressors can be both physical (or environmental) and psychological (or mental). Stress weakens the effectiveness of the body's immune system, its natural defence system. The person is then more vulnerable to harmful cells in the body and becomes ill. Stress reactions are the physical, psychological and behavioural responses people display in the face of stressors.
