Re: Do you hold your anger/problems inside?
Not so much anger...it takes a whole lot to get me mad. Problems, however, I always keep to myself. My dad was raised in a family where if there was an issue, everyone was suppose to ignore it and hope it goes away (is this an irish catholic thing??? or just a family trait???) Anyway, when I was younger, my immediate family did this a lot. It has gotten a bit better over the years, but a very hard habit to break.
Another weird thing, is I feel like an open book if there is something wrong in my world. I've been told that I am hard to read, but with SA, as I'm sure other people do, I over-analyze situations and once my mind is filled and I get that anxious feeling, I tend to think that EVERYBODY around me knows I'm off. Paranoia gets me every time.
Have you ever tried writing things down, tednugent2007? I find this to be really helpful when dealing with things...it just organizes thoughts and can release feelings sometimes when it's in black and white.
So if you ever feel neglected.
If you think that all is lost...
I'll be counting up my demons, yeah
hoping everything's not lost.
