[Ed. – We’re supposed to gather from this article that mental health professionals views ‘Election Stress Disorder’ prior to this election? Where would we be without experts?]
A new round of election stress disorder is spreading across the U.S., according to experts. They say the tension is even worse this time because of the coronavirus pandemic.
Stress levels have been sky-high for months now. …
Marsha Palanci says she’s been feeling election anxiety.
“I was keeping pretty zen about the whole situation, until I watched the debates, and then that went out the window and I have been incredibly stressed,” Palanci said.
“I’m getting a lot of emergency calls of resentment or anger,” therapist Dr. Steven Stosny said.
Stosny says stress over the election is causing many Americans to fight with their spouses, friends and co-workers. During the 2016 election, he coined a term for it: election stress disorder. And he says, this year, the anxiety is even worse.
