I wonder if in the following context, the preposition "from" sounds natural?

I'm asking this question because I've thought the fixed verb is "to be upset about something" rather than "...from something".

  • Don't get upset from my words - you are just doing your work and Wiris is a really good product - with commercial service (CAS). In fact moodle has been used as a tool in several EU projects but probably none of the EU funds have been addressed to development of moodle itself... [Source]

    upset "about" is more natural, though upset "by" is even better. But from your example, I would use "Please don't be upset" and leave off the rest. – Michael Dorgan Jun 9 at 22:56
