Furthermore, negative emotions have been associated with reactions of stress, loss of self-esteem, and feelings of guilt that occasionally develop into burnout syndrome and various diseases (Theorell, 2003; Todaro, Shen, Niaura, Spiro, & Ward, 2003).
Frequency of hypoglycemic episodes was not related to fear of hypoglycemia (Irvine, Cox, & Gonder- Frederick, 1992; Ying & Man 1998), whereas fear was positively related to frequency of hypoglycemic episodes that required hospitalization (Ying & Man, 1998), and to anxiety level (Wredling, Theorell, Roll, Lins, & Adamson, 1992), and negatively related to happiness in adults prone to recurrent severe episodes of hypoglycemia (Wredling et al., 1992).

Empirical studies of the relationship between psychosocial factors and musculoskeletal symptoms and injury suggest many potential risk factors, including low decision latitude at work (Bernard, Sauter, Fine, Petersen, & Hales, 1994; Faucett & Rempel, 1994), lack of social support (Bernard et al., 1994; Faucett & Rempel, 1994; Toomingas, Theorell, Michelsen, & Nordemar, 1997), high work pace (Houtman, Bongers, Smulders, & Kompier, 1994), low intellectual discretion (Houtman et al., 1994), high psychological demands (Toomingas et al., 1997), high job strain (Toomingas et al., 1997), and increased time or job pressures (Bernard et al., 1994).
According to Karasek and Theorell (19), these intervals promote freedom of action and ease tensions during the workday.
