STRESS

http://www.radiolab.org/2007/apr/09/

★★

  • Dealing with stress – electrocuted rats
  • Gnaw on wood
  • Gnaw on other rats (violence)
  • Helps to know in advance what’s about to happen – predictability and control over stress
  • Social support – helps to have friends
    • Stories of stress
    • Singer with hysterical dysphonia – lost her voice – no conclusive explanation for why, and how she got it back
    • Acting in times of danger – man in boating accident

Meanwhile: Calamitous Saturday at work, under pressure getting everything printed in time, finally got out in time to catch afternoon sun – walked towards casa de mi padres via fox sporting grounds – broke down in front of the horses at the point where the man’s fiancé realises his leg is being sawn off by the boat propeller.
