Life getting on my nerves
Hi - I have this feeling of anger towards the world right now - not for any particular reason. In fact I am more fortuante than most. A friend got attacked recently, stabbed and gun held to head and I got upset because of the political situation here as I feel there is so much hatred but I can't help feeling I don't want to be in this country - I am scared.
People are irritating me - I cannot even handle noise or any chaos. No patience or tolerance.
Want to fly away.
Is it a health problem, do I need a holiday or am I just an old grundy.

Well, a holiday break could be a really good idea, as this could be due to a gradual accumulation of stresses, capped off by the assault on your friend. If the bad feelings persist even after a break ( and choose somewhere relaxing and pampering rather than somewhere with a crowd of screaming school-kids ) then see a shrink for a re-assessment fo the situation, and treatment advice.
