Can skids make you physically ill

I read a blog today about skids making you sick and I think that it's true. About two years ago I would start to have panic attacks when I knew ss11 was coming or when he'd just show up. I hadn't had one since my first husband's dad was killed 14+ years ago. My chest would hurt as soon as I seen the car slowing down. I did this for a few months straight. I disengaged some and the panic attacks went away some. I still have them but not as much. For the last month I started waking up sore. I felt like I'd been in a car wreck. My muscles are all so tense and I noticed I was exhausted. I went to the doctor a couple weeks ago and was told I now have fibromyalgia. I have soaked up as much information on what caused me to get it in the first place. Lots of stress and aggravation can trigger it. I can't say for sure but I think that's how I got it so now I wake up and can barely move. I'm so exhausted some days i do nothing.

I have disengaged (mostly) with my SD. I know that I will HAVE TO see her eventually and the thought not only makes me panic, but upsets my stomach and makes me exhausted. You are SO not alone... I am doing my best to be totally cool with whatever relationship I have with her, but you know how the thinking/ruminating kicks in!
