Nonword of the Week: Restress

Restress: to experience anxiety about the same issue more than one time; to have a recurring worry

Example: Chelsea restressed about Monday’s final exam every three hours or so.

Yeah, my finals week is getting to me.  Is it that obvious?  I am a chronic restresser when it comes to things like major tests and papers. Get out of my brain, panicky feelings! Leave me alone!

  1. I’m constantly restressing too. But I still haven’t managed to think of my own nonword yet; and I thought I had a good command of the English language! I’ll keep trying :)
