Don't they say Stress will kill you?

I am not one to worry, my mother taught me from a very young age to give all my worries to the Lord. I am really not sure how one can survive with out that.  Now stress..... believe it or not, I didn't learn what the word stress was until I was an adult. Stress is completely different. And I can say that right this minute in my life I am stressed to the limit. So much is going on in my life, and so much of it lies in other peoples hands.  A lot of it is up to us to figure out and to lean on Christ to help us through. So I went to the Bible to help me and these verses  just did it.
Psalms 18:2-6 The Lord is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower. I will call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine enemies. The sorrows of death compassed me, and the floods of ungodly men made me afraid. The sorrows of hell compassed me about: the snares of death prevented me. In my distress I called upon the Lord, and cried unto my God: he heard my voice out of his temple, and my cry came before him, even into his ears.

With my Heavenly Father at my side, "Stress isn't going to kill me"

It's hard to separate worry and stress. Are they related, or not? Can you be stressed, and not be worried? I think so, but it's a fine line, isn't it, and the answer,of course, is our Faith.
