Until I had therapy and DBT, I would constantly get flooded emotionally. My husband would argue with me over some little thing and I would freeze up, overwhelmed with emotion that I couldn't express. He said I looked like a deer in the headlights or a cyborg whose program had crashed. I intepreted anger as rage, unhappiness as bottomless grief. I couldn't handle other people's emotions at all because i would get flooded trying to respond. I walked away from relationships rather than confront little things because I knew I couldn't confront anything without getting flooded. It made it hard to have a friendship.
