to be "under a lot of stress" is an idiom, isn't it? In which case, how would one translate that into ASL? I'm hesitant to sign UNDER and sign STRESS because of it being an idiom. If anyone knows how to translate, it would be most helpful.

Over dramatize the sign to make it apparent that your are overwhelmed. Same as Thirsty vs Dehydrated; Hungry vs starved. holding a water hose vs fire hose. get the idea?
