Stressed

Stress according to Wikipedia:

In medical terms, stress is a physical or psychological stimulus that can produce mental or physiological reactions that may lead to illness.Technically speaking, stress is a disruption of homeostasis, which may be triggered by alarming experiences, either real or imaginary.[1][2]

Distress is the most commonly-referred to type of stress, having negative implications, whereas eustress is a positive, desirable form of stress. Both can be equally taxing on the body, and are cumulative in nature.
I've going through a lot of stressful situations lately, both positive and negative. Even the positive changes in my life are causing negative efffects on my body. I hope I survive with minimal damage to my system.

I need the change because my sub conscious has already warned me of the possible effects of homeostasis, and of not helping myself first before I help others.

*gulp*

Relax. Homeostasis is equilibrium. Don't worry too much.
