    Word that is more upset than upset?

    Hello,

    I'm wondering if you get told to try and not be too upset (as a joke), what word could you use instead of upset as a reply to make out they would be more upset, e.g. try and not be too distraught.

    Thanks.

    "Livid" is a good one.

    Re: Word that is more upset than upset?

    It depends whether you mean upset (sad) or upset (angry).

    More than angry = livid, furious, seething.
    More than sad = devastated, crushed.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
