I thought it was stress.....

Well~ I have been having "stomach pains" off and on for about 2 weeks now. Well I have just chalked it up to stress and waiting for that elusive TA. Well last night in church I was hurting so bad...I could not get comfortable..the longer I sat the more unbareable the pain. I am thinking ok...I must be really stressed about that TA..(I was sooo hoping would come today). Well not only did TA not come today..I went to the doc and he said it was a "gall bladder attack"..so my gallbladder is going bye-bye tomorrow. He wants to go ahead and get it out so I will be ready to go to China and not have to worry about an "attack" there. Well I checked the internet to see if this "attack"( I like saying that word) could be caused by stress. Here is what I found.

"CBN scientists believe the latest finding supports a link between social stress and digestive function and could have implications for understanding disorders such as gallstones, a product of excess bile accumulation, in humans.

"Because social stress activates the nervous system of humans in similar ways as it does in fishes," said Earley, "the study could hold clues to evaluating the risk factors that contribute to gallstone formation in people."

So I guess I am like some kind of fish?!? What does this mean?!?!?!?!?!?!
