Dealing with frustration

Posted by Cass on September 29, 2004, at 0:44:30

I'm having trouble dealing with frustration.

In the past I supressed it a great deal and shoved it down into my consciousness, but my self-esteem is better than it used to be, and I'm a lot less depressed, so I find I can't just shove it down anymore. I know it's healthy that I don't want to supress it, but I need to express it in socially acceptable ways, and I'm not very experienced in that.

I'm a vegetarian, and I get really frustrated that the area I live in is so meat oriented. There are very few restaurants where I can order fresh vegetarian food. I resent it. I like to eat out. I can't move right now, and besides this area is nice in other ways, but I feel alienated.

I'm also frustrated because I can't communicate as well as I used to. I have a medical problem that interferes with blood flow to the brain, and this could be the reason, but I'm not sure. Sometimes I just find myself overwhelmed with frustration that I cannot articulate what I want to say.

I also get frustrated with technological and mechanical problems. I am not gifted in those areas. Sometimes I get tempermental when I can't master some technical or mechanical task. I get so undone by it.

So how do others here deal with frustration?
