... In my experience, its not so much the absolute level of stress that I associate with CH, but the CHANGE IN STRESS. Of particular concern to me is the time soon after what is typically considered to be the most stressful.
I relate the "stress-induced CH-attack" as the result of the change in chemistry, perhaps adreanaline-related, that accompanies post-stress process.
As evidence of my experience, I am often able to ward off a CH-attack by working harder and longer. Of course, this is addict-behavior which can not be sustained, and eventually leads to a really bad, and usually lengthy, CH-bout.
I suspect that it will take a long time, MONTHS, if not YEARS, to sucessfully change my life-style to reduce the pervasive "permanet" stress level to the point where changes do not contribute to my CH-experience.
Of course, this is only my opinion, and others will have other things to say about theirs.
