Stress and Health
A lot of my patients have been “working wounded”. They were struggling financially and experiencing stress-related conditions from the constant unease caused by insecurity about basic necessities. Another factor was that they had little influence over their working conditions.
The combination of insecurity about meeting their basic needs and not having the ability to influence their condition had a significant negative impact on their health and the health of their family members.
