I'm down with depression, stress and POIS have been interlinked for me. Even when out of POIS I constantly think about things, I've had generalised anxiety disorder since my early teens, large part health anxiety.

I have social anxiety pretty bad and last semester at college I had a constant burning in my chest from all the anxiety. Felt like there was literally a ball of acid in my chest at all times.

I believe this anxiety worsened my POIS symptoms.
Taking ginger tea, no wheat, fenugreek+green tea/garlic, saw palmetto, niacin, boswellia, huperzine, B complex and nutmeg. See my treatment summary post for more info: http://poiscenter.com/forums/index.php?topic=81.msg3513#msg3513

I work almost 24x7, just stopping to sleep and eat.  An average day for me is 10-12hrs with as many as 20hrs in a 48hr time period on the weekends.
