Restlessness, Irritability

Restlessness, irritability

You can never relax, and you never feel rested. It’s not surprising that you would feel angry, irritable, never peaceful. Men may manifest that irritability by lashing out at the people around them, having a volatile temper, not being able to sit still, and perhaps even feeling angry at themselves for not being able to pull out of it on their own.

Paul Gottlieb “As you get sick, as you become drawn in more and more by depression, you lose that perspective. Events do become more irritating, you feel more frustrated about getting things done. You feel angrier, you feel sadder, everything's magnified in an abnormal way.”

—Paul Gottlieb, Publisher
