I can be having a perfectly fine day, and then something happens that totally pisses me off. Sometimes it’s something I did like missing an appointment or engagement that would not have happened if I had been more proactive or organized. Then I start beating up on myself. There’s sometimes the frustration of feeling like I can’t do something or just being overwhelmed.

When things like this happen I often burst into tears. Sometimes I just let out a scream or a f-bomb. Fortunately the screaming or cursing is usually in the privacy of my own home, or if I’m out I just get away from people. The crying is harder to control, and sometimes I’ll be talking to someone about what is happening and just burst into tears.

As for the crying I should probably add this to the worst advice thread. As a child when I’d start crying my mother would “Say stop crying.” That would just make me cry harder.
