Psychiatrists have warned that a bad economy can actually have an adverse condition on your mental health.
Just how adverse, you ask. Well, it can bring on wild mood swings.
You're a Republican, say, and you're normal mood is one of anti-New Deal, anti-Great Society, anti-regulatory, anti-government intervention in the economy.
But under extreme toxic asset-related stress, you're suddenly a socialist!
Mental health officials refer to it as bipolarpartisanship.
But, fear not, there is a cure.
Just try a nice Swedish massage.
