oa SA Pharmaceutical Journal - A piece of my mind : editorial comment
Peace of mind
Yes. You read this correctly. I'm giving you a piece of my mind about peace of mind, but first let me share the opposite. I asked the authority (Mr Google) and was totally confused by one of the hits, which said that there is no opposite to peace of mind. One reference defined peace of mind as the absence of mental stress or anxiety, and my logic says that the opposite would be the presence of mental stress or anxiety, which about sums it up. Luckily my guru (Roget's 21st century Thesaurus) says that there are indeed antonyms - misery, pain, gloom, dissatisfaction and unhappiness being but a few. And we know those feelings, don't we? Especially when it comes to professional liability.
