Have you ever been late on a house payment? How bad did you feel? Does this study surprise you in any way?

I have beem through no fault of my own --- the mortgage company persisted on sending the bill to the wrong address.

How did I feel? Mad as Hell! and they heard it from me as well!

I haven't been, but I have been late on other bills, which I found very stressful, so I can only imagine how much more stressful it would be if it were your house. I didn't even think of the food and medication issue, but it would definitely compounds the health concerns!
