Wednesday Word of the Day

splenetic \spli-NET-ik\, adjective:
1. Irritable; peevish; spiteful.
2. Of the spleen.
3. Archaic: Affected with, characterized by, or tending to produce melancholy.

~Okay, I get number one...heck sometimes I am number one!  lol  But 'Of the spleen' does that mean the spleen is an irritable; peevish; spiteful organ?  Can organs like the spleen, liver, kidneys be associated with feelings?~


  1. I sometimes feel quite spelnetic!! lol!

  2. Actually, having done a bit of study on the use Chinese Herbal formulas, the liver is associated with anger. That is, if your liver is under stress, not healthy, and if you take corrective and balancing herbs, then that eliminates too much anger. I've seen it work, too.

    But, yeah, I'm feeling spelnetic at the moment!

  3. Ooh, great info, Savanna! I didn't know that about the liver. Thanks for sharing...I could use some of those herbal formulas. ;)

  4. Serena, Dandelion root is good for your liver. ~smiles~

  5. Awesome! I'll have to see if I can find some. :) Thanks
