At the recent San Francisco APA meeting, a call was made to define bitterness as a pathological condition. The proposed acronym is PTED – Post Traumatic Embitterment Disorder. I guess it covers the range from pissy to postal. Maybe our pharma friends can find an enzyme to inhibit for the treatment of PTED. Better yet, perhaps there is an animal model out there- say, badgers or wolverines. Sounds like a market opportunity!
