Flight, fight or nap? Responding to stress with learned helplessness.

 

Many people respond to stress and anxiety by getting tired, sleepy and depleted of strength, then taking a nap as a response to stress and anxiety. Washington Times, 01/07/2014. (Also see: Causes of Scleroderma: Stress and Fatigue)

Really interesting article Jo, I certainly know of relatives who have suffered this paralysis in response to stress/anxiety and I know that I am someone who can need to sleep in response to stress/anxiety. So, could we have this response to scleroderma, would it make the fatigue we already have worse? After all scleroderma can cause extreme stress and anxiety!

 

Take care.
