    I have been living with this broken heart for 9-12 years, and I feel bad physically most of the time. I mean I'm strong, but I'm stressed out all the time, and I have a quicker temper than I had before. I lost my job right after Christmas, so I have no insurance to see a doctor for these issues. My heart and my blood feels like it's just on fire inside of me, and I want to fight with the hands all the time. I really didn't think that a broken heart was a real sympton, so I didn't talk about to any professional. I just know I'm tired of feeling angry and stifled all the time, and I cant sleep, it is 3:45 am at the time of this writing and I usually go to sleep around 4:00 am. I know thats not normal, but what can I do?
