Angry America—Mad is bad when it come to your health

November 24th, 2010 - By Marilynn Preston, The Bryan Times

Sam is a sweet guy—but put him traffic, and watch him explode. He gets mad in traffic jams, mad at stupid drivers, even mad at himself for choosing the slowest lane.

Lisa has a hair trigger, too, when it comes to venting distress. Her pet peeve? Rude people who talk on cell phones within earshot of her. “I can hear you!” she bellows. Who said two wrongs don’t make a right?

The 2010 election certainly revealed a high level of anger and frustration among millions of voters in and out of the tea party. People are stressed about too much spending, too little spending, our rising debt, our falling stature worldwide. Add to this the everyday challenges of relationships, kids and bills, and you’ve got a tsunami of upset, a tornado of tension that we see all around us, whether it’s expressed as road rage or hate crimes or bullying in schools.
