THE REMEDY FOR PAINS FROM "PEEVES"

Here is something interesting about the inelegant statement you sometimes hear, "That fellow gives me a pain!" A physician is reported in a news dispatch to have reached the conclusion that oftentimes one person has a pain because he is "peeved" at someone else. Of forty cases of a certain inflammatory disorder this physician found that every individual affected was entertaining a grudge or resentment against some "other fellow." He concludes that "peeves" entertained by one person toward another sour mentally the one who entertains them and in turn affect him physically, often making him nervous, irritable, sleepless, or dyspeptic.

The methods suggested by the physician for getting rid of these bad feelings include the blowing off of steam by writing a letter expressing one's pent-up feelings toward the other person involved, holding it a day, and not mailing it. Another antidote he offers is vigorous exercise or hard work to divert one's thought from the pain-producing "peeves."
