I was literally skin and bones at my lowest point as an elders's only teenage daughter. Just going into the Hall made my stomach churn and I fought nausea thru the entire meeting. I could barely eat, and the nausea and stomach pain took over, all my waking hours, not confined any more to just at meetings. I went on ulcer medications, and it helped some. Then, the terrible headaches began. I finally had to quit the TM school That helped some, as I was down to 94 lbs. But nothing relieved my stress related symptoms like moving out of my parents house and never going to another meeting! Wow, what a relief! My stomach is perfectly fine now. Occasionally, when work's stressful, my stomach cramps and I remember those dark days at the hall. I know now, my health problems were purely from stress. It's not normal for a 16 year old girl to develope ulcers like I did.
