From this Gawker post about the health benefits of blogging:
"1. Bitching and moaning alleviates stress! "As social creatures, humans have a range of pain-related behaviors, such as complaining, which acts as a 'placebo for getting satisfied.'""
So there ya go. I may complain a lot, but I'm just acting as a typical "social creature." I guess not complaining and actually dealing with your issues is...antisocial, then?
