I've noticed that I've been feeling run down lately. I've not changed diet since the whole horse ordeal began, but have started taking vitamins, drinking more milk, more water, less pop, etc. Is there any way that emotional stress can cause a drop in immune response? We did studies where physical stress (increased heat, humidity, poor lighting, poor feed, etc.) would affect birds conversion ratios and made them more susceptible to illness, but was wondering if it is at all possible for emotional stress to do the same? I'm running a fever again, am not hungry and am dying of thirst. I can't understand how or why this keeps happening, but it always seems to trace back to Sams Club. I didn't even try samples this time! If you can help me find scientific documents that I could look at later to confirm. I'm never this sick this often. I'm a really healthy person. I'm still dropping weight like crazy though (not like I don't need to! ) and I can't understand why.
