Emosies opkrop
Hi CS en almal. Ek wil iets weet oor die opkrop van emosies. As n persoon hulle emosies opkrop en opkrop vir n baie lang tyd en so ongelukkig is in n verhouding byvoorbeeld dat hulle begin dink aan selfmoord, is daar n risk vir goed soos n hartaanval, stroke of ander gesondheidsprobleme behalwe nou vir selfmoord pleeg?

There is indeed evidence that chronic severe depression, especially if untreated, and chronic stress and anxiety, again especially if untreated, CAN have a negative impact on oyur physical health in many different ways. It can interfere with our immunity to infections, for instance, and can increase the riskm of heart attacks, etc, perghaps through the increase in risk of high blood pressure. And of course some people in efect commit suicide, not by doing anything to harm themselves, but by doing nothing that is necessary to protect themselves, like the chronic diabetic who does not use their medicine properly.
