Assunto:  is 'too' and 'also' interchangeable ?
 
Mensagem:  Today I read a thought from Dalai Lama where he states the following:

"Like anyone else, I too have the potential for violence; I too have anger in me. However, I try to recall that anger is a destructive emotion. I remind myself that scientists now say that anger is bad for our health; it eats into our immune system. So, anger destroys our peace of mind and our physical health. We shouldn’t welcome it or think of it as natural or as a friend."


I've always thought that we can use 'too' only in the end of sentences, but sometimes I read some sentences following the pattern above.

I would write 'I also have anger' instead of 'I too have anger'.

Is there some cases in which 'also' and 'too' are interchangeable?
