If you are short tempered or impatient all the time, you just might find yourself feeling sick more often. In fact, shouting and screaming can magnify anger and make you more prone to hurting someone. Shouting is one type of verbal abuse and that often turns to physical abuse. There will be no bruises or black eye or broken bone to signal what is happening inside houses. But that does not mean the abuse is any less harmful. Psychologist Dianne Tice found that prolonged yelling keeps the adrenaline pumping through our bodies and actually prolongs our feelings of anger. Then our mood gets gloomier and our stress levels rise.
