Default can you "make" yourself sick?

it basically started late last year
due to stress and stuff i started coughing ALOT
and when im feeling very stressed or nervous i tend to have alot of coughing fits. my mom says it may be due to lack of breathing as anxiety often slows your breathing but it cant be that because i can still do other stuff like swim or go running and its not as bad.

It's possible. There's this thing known as psychosomatic illness, which is caused by your mental condition. I don't know much about it, but it seems plausible.

BTW, since this is dealing with health, shouldn't it be 1 section down to Beauty/Fitness/Health section? V

yep. Life is a mysterious thing.

You be headstrong and think all the time you will not get sick, and thus you will not get sick. If you falter and get stressed, worry all the time, etc, you are more likely to get sick.

Like I get sick all the time before exams, mostly because I'm worried about exams.

Well if you cough a lot and continuously you better see a doctor o_O

But once I've made myself sick because I just want to skip a day of school. I ended up with an athsma attack and skipped a week of school.

Works the otherside too, people can heal if they believe certain treatment will change, improve their condition. Placebo is the solution for some cases~ as for religion or just and simply your mind's will :3

Easy solution Leca. Every time you start to feel sick, punch yourself in the face. Wake yourself up from that crazyness.

In all honestly, it's similar to the placebo effect. Just because you think your getting medicine, you feel better. Now it doesn't always work that way. You could actually be sick. Don't just blame it on your head unless your doctor clearly tells you nothing is wrong.

...punching yourself would make yourself hurt more... wouldn't it?

There could be the possiblity of a placebo, but it could also be real ... you know?

I remember from my AP psyhoclogy class I took last year that there was a class of disorders that have no source whatsoever, but still shows signs and symptoms. Forgot what the class was called though.

...just don't punch yourself in the face >.>;
