When Writing Can Become Unhealthy

As some of you may know, I'm working on a horror script for a director and producer. I've got to have it done by the end of this month.

I work four days a week at my dad's dental office - five hours a day. I spend at least another 4-5 hours of writing, which I do mostly at night. Which means I go to bed around 11 or 12:00.

I've noticed that I haven't been feeling that great lately and now I know I'm putting too much pressure on myself to write. I feel achy, tired, and sick to my stomach.

Does this happen to new writers?
