Thought I was having a heart attack yesterday. I had bad chest pains on the left hand side of my chest and down my left arm. Turns out it was an anxiety attack. I find it interesting that I don't consciously feel stressed but I must be. Maybe I have become so used to the stress levels I feel that I am unaware that I am stressed. I wonder whether our modern lifestyles actually trap us into a high stress way of life which we then accept as normal? I think once I am married I want to be more aware of my stress levels and to more actively manage them. I don't think avoiding all stress is realistic or even that healthy but continued stress is a recipe for disaster.
