Question about physiological effects of stress at the subconscious level
I'll get right to the point. I've had a very stressful year. Divorce, new relationship (along with a new step-family, so to speak), new job... It's definitely been one big change after another. Consciously, I can deal with these things quickly and easily. Much more quickly than average, from what I've gathered from other forums, friends and family, books, and mental health professionals.
I'm not quick to anger, I know how to relax, deal with my problems, etc. Everything I look up about stress is typical advice about how to relax. That's not my issue. I'm plenty relaxed, I'm a generally happy person, and I really have nothing to complain about. Life is actually pretty good right now. The scales seem to be tipped in my favor for the time being.
But for the last few months, my body has begun to do strange things. Spots in my vision (well, one spot, but it's been there for over a month now), sexual performance issues, itchy bumps all over my body (they're pretty minor and tend to go away quickly, only to pop up somewhere else shortly thereafter), and several other things.
Is this some sort of residual emotional stress that is still in my subconscious? And if so, how would I go about dealing with that?
