Develop your Emotional Intelligence or Die Early

I ignored stress related health issues in the workplace until three months ago, when my lungs stopped working. Gasping for air and barely able to swallow solid food, I tried the emergency room, my M.D., an acupuncturist, and finally my chiropractor, who told me, "I can adjust you so that you can breathe, but only you can heal yourself and stop it from happening again." Since then, I've learned that even though my symptoms were physical, my illness was mental. I cured myself (with help) by developing my emotional intelligence. I share this with you because, even though work-related stress is old news, I don't want it to sneak up on you as stealthily as it did me. Previously.
