Stress in a LANL discipline issue

From Anonymous:

Todd Kauppila is not the first LANL employee to suffer pancreatic hemorrhage from stress in a LANL discipline issue. In another, lesser known case, a LANL employee suffered the same illness due to a bleeding ulcer which perforated the intestine and eroded the pancreas. Interestingly enough, this person had not had an alcoholic drink in over 20 years. This person had also been disciplined by LANL and was taking legal action to clear his name. Luckily for him, he had not been fired and still had medical insurance. The result was a multiple week hospital stay and a long recovery period at home. This person barely missed death. Unfortunately, Todd wasn't so lucky. For the rest of us, these are lessons the ways stress can kill and the incredible cost of standing up to LANL.
