To ask for a grip please?

I watched the documentary "The September Issue" last night.

In it, Anna Wintour recounted asking her father why he had stepped down as Editor of The London Evening Standard. His response was he was "getting too angry" and she said she now understood what he meant and that when that time comes she'd leave her job as EIC of US Vogue.

The reason for mentioning this is that I think I'm near that point with MN --but I like it too much to flounce.
There's been 2 threads this week where I could literally feel my blood pressure rising.

I'm obviously getting far too over invested!!! AIBU to ask if I'm not the only one because then I won't feel so stupid and ask you to tell me to get a bloody grip and calm down grin?

I know what you mean but I suspect we both need grips - let's hand them to each other and try and laugh it off. [grip]

If you are getting that angry then just take a short break? It's easy to get caught up with issues and opinions on here so learn some techniques to help you stay more detached?
My daughter reminds me quite often to back off when I get too involved in any issues in life...sometimes that's all I need to detach myself.
