  1. Yes, because I think there is a fundamental problem here- it is fairly obvious that stress that either results from or results in physiological illness will also result in problems with coping, and I don't see any argument If you read Chapter 7, p 217-224 of the Pearson Baccalaureate Psychology book by Alan Law et al, there is a good section on coping strategies for stress. Maybe, given your interest in the physiological aspect you could evaluate the usefulness of coping strategies for sterss associated with illness. So you shift your focus from the link between illness and stress, to investigate exactly which coping mechanisms are best if you are ill and this is making you stressed? Go and read as much as you can about stress and coping - at a secondary level (i.e. textbooks rather than original studies at this stage).
  2. I am not sure with this one...what sort of answer are you expecting to come up with?
  3. Why not compare coping strategies like problem and emotion focused coping, with a particular emphasis on the usefulness of mindfulness?
