Can you get sick from being under stress?

I'm so fed up with my SO. He's so damn lazy, and is a part time dad at best. We're always arguing, he's always on my nerves. He never helps out. If he does he think he's owed sex. It's crazy.

i try to eat decent. I might have a soda or two a day. But there's always fruit and veggies and protein in my daily diet. I've just started walking at night. I do eat some fatty or deep fried food, but it's NOTHING like it was years ago. Anyway, I've been feeling kind of icky lately. I have random stomach aches, loss of appetite. Sometimes I have killer headaches. Idk, is it possible the stress I'm under with SO is making me feel that way??

Absolutely. Stress can really compromise your immune system. Its a proven fact.

Could be. I've been under so much stress at one time that my entire immune system shut down and my doctor ORDERED me off of work and to stay away from stressful situations for 2 weeks.

Yes. When I am under a ton of stress, my stomach hurts, and my headaches get worse, and my arthritus gets horrible.
