A new round of election stress disorder is spreading across the U.S., according to experts. They say the tension is even worse this time because of the coronavirus pandemic.
Stress levels have been sky-high for months now. We’ve been dealing with the coronavirus since March and tensions have escalated the last few weeks before the election.
Marsha Palanci says she’s been feeling election anxiety.
“I was keeping pretty zen about the whole situation, until I watched the debates, and then that went out the window and I have been incredibly stressed,” Palanci said.
“I’m getting a lot of emergency calls of resentment or anger,” therapist Dr. Steven Stosny said.
