  • Stress doesn't become real for people only after the age of 20.

    Your daughter is stressed --whether or not she has a diagnosable disease. There are a lot of things that stress children, just as there are a lot of things that stress adults. It would be helpful for her if, when you see that she's becoming stressed, you help her to do things that alleviate it: more sleep, better quality food, less tv (it's a stressor, even if it appears to relax people), more physical affection, quieter days with fewer appointments and classes and things, longer lead-in to bedtime, less pressure to perform perfectly in school or believe everything she's told, more time to get used to the idea of things before having to deal with the especially if she has to deal with them alone...

    The longer she's stressed, the more damage it will do to her body. Do you see those little kids with the huge bellies? That's all stress fat...
