wow, that article really hit home. that social excusion can elicit pain in the same way that physical pain can, and that sort of talking yourself through it can lessen the pain is exactly what is going on with me right now. i have been using psychobabble as an outlet, to sort of make my feelings public. then i can turn from them and go to sleep easier at night. i suppose that my last post made it seem that i was totally letting my feelings rule my life.
well, i AM trying to handle them, and what i wrote was one way of doing that. right now i am feeling a little defensive b/c of what rod said. but at the same time, it is something i need to work on. so rod, how do you manage feelings so well? i am open to suggestions.
