Jeez...in the past, when I've been angry, the entire universe has known...except me.

It's strange how we all process things in different ways, isn't it? It's kind of a testament to our uniquity (is that a word?).

yeah - i used to have 3 ulcers as proof... but even then it wasn't my anger that was being held in - it was everything else.

but in answer to your initial question - yes, there are times I have wondered what planet people were from - thinking their life was over because the store ran out of their favorite nail polish.

Two consecutive posts on the extremes struck me as really illustrative of how it can go:

Both so true! What a great idea for a thread.

Mark,

Your comment here recalled to my memory some of the stuff that made me wonder the same thing when other kids groused about stuff:

1. Is so-and-so fat?
2. Why doesn't the pay phone give change when all you have is a quarter?
3. Why isn't there more chocolate milk in the milk machine?
4. Why is my bus stop at the beginning of the route?
5. Why did you forget to take out the trash?

Meanwhile, I'm thinking what's the best way to kill myself.

Much love,
Larry

Good lord - sometimes I want to scream at other people "Your problems, let me tell you something...." and other times I think "Why did what happened to me bother me so much when <fill in the name> has so much more to be screwed up about." so I get confused about that too. What the hell!!

And as for emotions, one therapist I saw said I was a totally blank slate - she said "You sit there and I can't tell what you are thinking at all." and that I could not read other people non-verbal communications. She even went so far as to suggest I had Asperger Syndrome. I have not flushed that out or discussed it with a Nuerologist yet, it was hard enough just to go in for a routine check up. So when I get angry - nobody knows - usually not even me.

I think usually I feel the opposite. That my problems are not importent enough to bother people with. And then once in the while, I feel things get 'back up' enough inside that I just make some crazy post saying everything I should been saying for a few months. And then it start again.

Mel,

I think when people snivel over the minor stuff all the time they may actually be in denial about the really bad things that have happened in their life so they major in the minor stuff. Subconsciously if they can do that they don't have to face the really big issues, you know?

What a way to live, eh?

Yeah, from our side it can get really irritating, but I try to remember that in actuality their problems may be a lot worse than mine because of what they may indeed actually be doing. Kind of changes the perspective a little.

Lots of love,

John
