    Are you a non-aggressive person in general but whose blood specifically boils at the harmful psychobabble and other injustices faced by the group of patients with ME and CFS?

    Me, angry at psychobabble, concerned at the harm they are doing to people? No, who would have thought?

    Or at any of the injustices all around the world, where ordinary folk just like us are suffering and being deprived of their human rights, starved, poisoned and bullied by governments and big business.

    Cameron is planning to force through legislation to remove ordinarly folk's rights to refuse permission to be fracked under...

    Bhopal hasn't been cleared up yet...

    (I think I belong in this group of angry empathisers. :p )

    It has always bugged me that anger is seen as a 'bad' emotion, even when it is rational. Anger can be a great motivator for good.

    That is something I have been saying for years. We can use anger as the engine to motivate us, its only a problem if its also driving the car.
