> 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.

Ummm. Ditto here, without being trite. You must have done quite a bit of recovery to be able to write it out so plainly. I still struggle lots with safety issuses. Only a few safe people. Superficial friends, which are fine, and they're good people. I get lonely often.


MDD currently controlled. C-ptsd and comorbid health concerns. Chronic fatigue.
