Stress is good for you

I woke up this morning with a sore throat. The two most obvious possible reasons i thought of this were:

A: I was singing along too much with Heather Alexander's Shadow Stalker CD (badly of course) on the way to and back from work yesterday, and wore my throat out.

B: The theory that a lot of my ex-coworkers held to, that when you're stressed out your body goes into overtime trying to keep sickness down, as soon as the stress is over, your body collapses from the extended effort and the sickness takes over. They came up with this theory to explain why so many people got through crunch times without getting sick at all, and then came down with something as soon as they were given time off. Of course it could as easily be a collusion of coincidences as anything else.
