Some Good News at Last

Worry more, live longer -
Features, Health & Wellbeing - The Independent
: "Dr Marios Kyriazis, a GP and expert in geriatric medicine, is among a growing number of health professionals claiming that stress isn't the one-way road to illness and an early grave that most of us assume. In fact, provided it's relatively short-term, it appears that stress can do wonders for the immune system and ageing process, not to mention keeping the likes of Alzheimer's, arthritis and certain cancers at bay."

My grandmother has been a worrier for most (or maybe all) of her life.

She'll be 94 this summer, lives on her own, doesn't need a walker or even a cane and sometimes looks in on or cooks meals for her less fortunate neighbors (who are in their 60s, 70s or 80s).
