☆  stress ストレス


So, I have a question for you today. Why is “stress” written in Katakana? Is there an actual word in Japanese (hiragana or kanji) that means stress? Is there some way that it is decided, “Oh, this word should be in Katakana” or “this word should be in hiragana.”?

Or, maybe Japanese people never felt stress until the met English speaking people?! Ha ha! 

If you don’t know the answer, no need to feel stress! I won’t mind. It’s just that I couldn’t find the answer on Google, so I thought I’d check in here with you guys.
