Anger Management

So, you may not know this readers, but I am a very passionate individual. I got a double dose of it with my heritage, being both Cuban and Italian. I'm hot blooded and very easily swung from one emotion to another, and the ADHD on top of that doesn't help. I started the paragraph that way so that when I say I felt like I was going to have an actual heart attack earlier this evening you have an inkling why I might be more afraid of that than other people.

In addition to all that high blood pressure coursing through my veins, I carry my stress in two places - my shoulders and my chest - so when I get particularly stressed out it causes a lump of pressure in my chest cavity which can sometimes be painful, as it was today. So stressed out was I that my body was apparently trying to force all of the blood into my heart at the same time, or at least that's what it felt like. The pain it caused made me think I was on the verge of a heart attack, and when that didn't come I was able to let go of some of the stress.

That's all I had for today really - so, my wise words for the day: Try to resolve whatever in your life is causing you stress, because life is unforgiving and wants to tear you apart from the inside out.

Don't let it.
