When i first saw your topic heading, it reminded me of that book by Lawrence Ferlenghetti, Love in the Days of Rage, great book if anyone is looking for literature recommendations.

But, uh, aside from that... no, i am constantly losing girlfriends as quickly as i can find them, it is difficult to explain to them... especially the fact that i have an eating disorder (anorexia) doesn't make it easy. I am better with my rage attacks now, clonidine got rid of those and once i broke the thought pattern... or maybe i should say de-kindled the neurological pattern, everyone on here seems to be *way* into biologically-based explanations and i may get flamed for suggesting that any of this is psychological, assuming there is a difference... well, at any rate, i have a difficult time explaining to them what the deal is. My family can understand pretty well, but not in the sense that i would like them to. They are fixated on the notion of biochemical imbalances, and any attempt at describing what has been going on with me in psychological terms, the terms that they as somewhat-more-normals would understand better and might help some, leads inevitably to them being p!ssed at me, because it takes more time than they have patience for. It is a difficult problem, and i think one we all face... and whether biopsychiatry can fix most or any of our other problems, it does not fix that one. That is more of a societal sickness, than a personal one.
