I've had the time to reflect on how the stress of this deployment is effecting me.
I'm not frantic.
I'm not crying.
I'm not gaining enough weight to count.
No migraines or headaches.
No lax cleanliness habits.
No anger issues.
No dead immune system.
Not even my usual over sleeping.
My hair is falling out.
I'm not balding.
Not even in the least.
However I'd imagine it is similar to what pregnant women experience after they're done with pregnancy.
It's to the point where I should vacuum everyday, not because of the black cat hair,
but because of my own.
Having to help my puppy out after I found out that he tried to digest some of my LONG hair, for the umpteenth time, I have decided that it was my stress that was causing this phenomena.
Traumatizing on both of us.
And there isn't much I can do about it.
And based on recent revelations, I have a feeling that the other 'usual' stress indicators are not far behind.
It's going to be an interesting next few months.
