chronic stress can certainly cause heart disease and death. you are right to think of seeking help.

if you got some kind of diagnosis, your health insurance company would also know. it could be barrier to getting life insurance in the future. small price to pay, however, for peace of mind.

These days you have to be really careful about who you yell at or explode on. It could be dangerous as it seems everyone has a gun now. In the good ol' days it was fisticuffs. I swear, guns must be in Cracker Jack boxes these days.

If it's depression that makes someone irritable, well as much as they may hate it, they'd need medication like a mood stabilizer.

Not true.

Exactly

Very true.
Not everyone has horrible effects but it is unwise to recommend this to someone who is already struggling with anxiety and mood swings. I'm not against weed, I've smoked it, I'm okay with people smoking it, and if the OP wants to do it that's his choice. But it's important to know that it is not harmless and it can have a negative impact on an already bad situation.

MJ tends to intensify experiences that can be good or bad.
