As stated earlier the ego creates separation/duality, and this can create pain that can become suffering. Thus, the ego is truly sick, not well (incapable of producing wellness). Tools of the ego are anger, hatred, impatience and irritation, all foundations for unhappiness. When we become aware of these, we disconnect from these negative emotions, realizing we are not them; they are simply feelings to be felt and released.
