What’s the difference You’re about to witness something very stressful. You’re about to experience something very stressful. Thank you.

“Witness” implies that the person is using his/her eyes to see the stressful thing, and suggests that the stressful thing is happening to someone else. “Experience” implies that the person himself/herself is feeling the stress, and it does not necessarily suggest vision as the source of the stress (e.g., maybe the experience will arise from something felt or heard).
