Are these stress caused health conditions?

I've worked a lot the past few months (but will be done in a few weeks) and have noticed a few physical changes. Could stress cause these conditions? (1) When I wash my hair in the shower, I lose a couple dozen hairs down the drain (although I don't seem to be balding) (2) My right eye has started twitching several times an hour (I can feel it but my friends can't see the twitching). (3) I've gone from about 5 to about 50 grey hairs the past year. I'm a 24 year old male.

How do I deal with a phobia that came from being around a cutter?

What do I do about a persistent phobia and why is it getting worse? Reading this question (how scary is blood) I had an instant reaction of starting to hyperventilate a bit, though I got it under control quickly (also stopped reading). As I get older and the more I'm aware of it, this reaction gets stronger. Explanation involves a friend who was a cutter so be aware if this is a trigger for you. [more inside]

Surprisingly, that long distance worked because we got to see each other almost every other weekend. [more inside]
