I am living proof that stress can and will put you in the hospital. My score was 378. Many of the stresses in my life could not be avoided. It does not change that it is still harmful. In a three month period, my wife became disabled and had 4 surgeries in three weeks. ICU for 13 days and hospital stay of 54 days. My brother died in his sleep on her 12th day in the hospital. My Father died the day after she returned home.
This was about a year ago, I was admitted to the hospital a couple of weeks ago. I had an ekg at a routine doctor’s visit. I had inverted “T” waves and was sent to the ER. I then had an Angiogram and found that I had some blockages in three arteries. None were severe enough to do anything about.
