    Interesting. I think it’s mostly men who suffer with heart disease. I wonder why this might be? Also I think I read somewhere that psychopathy and low blood pressure are linked. I assume psychopaths have lots of anger too -maybe it could go either way.

    Thank you, your hospital story is such an important example of how anger contributes to emotional as well as physical health. I help people manage anger by exactly what you suggest – start paying attention to feelings early by rating them from 1-10. Once we know Anger or stress is rising we can make a plan to calm down. Great article!
