Worried himself to death
Nick Sitzman was a strong, healthy, and ambitious young railroad yardman. One midsummer day, the train crews were informed that the could quit an hour early. While performing one last check, Nick was accidently locked in a refrigerator boxcar. He banged and shouted but no one heard him. Wanting to let his wife and children know exactly waht had happen to him, he found a knife and wrote on the floor "it's so cold, my body is getting numb. These may be my last words..." The next morning, the crew found him dead. An autopsy revealed that every physical sign of his body indicated he had frozen to death. And yet the refrigeration unit of the car was inoperative and the temp indicated 55 degrees. Nick had killed himself by the power of his own thoughts.
I thought this was a powerful story. It is amazing the power of our mind. This story is from a book called The Success Principles (I did not write the whole story, just in my words and it is a true story). For those going through withdraws, try to stay positive. Studies are showing that it really can effect your body mentally and physically. Sorry if this was a long post, i just thought the story was powerful. Try to stay positive, you can get through it! Best of luck to all that are struggling.
