Phoenix - i think that if you feel anger, you are capable of feeling other emotions as well.

my situation was just the opposite. i was not able to feel anger. i know it is in there but can't get to it to express it in an honest, authentic way. i know my "depression" hid a lot of other emotions that i didn't want to feel.

but i have heard that anger is usually a way of reacting to some other emotion - like a short-cut or default to a situation that causes distress of some kind. and that sometimes if we dig beneath the anger - try to slow it down or backtrack, we can figure out what is triggering the anger. there may be some other emotions there that are not felt or allowed because the anger comes out as such an immediate and automatic response. it is more powerful and the other emotions may be more painful so anger is a way of avoiding the other bad stuff. might be worth considering.

just a thought...

Lee,

I think without being around others in the flesh it ain't happening. I've looked high and low for a support group with CSA (and child abuse) and found zippo. I have no money for shrinks, period. Honestly, I don't need another one lying about themselves and feeding me a bunch of bullshit anyway. I'm too vulnerable and still very angry at the 12 con artists, er, shrinks from my past. It is exactly like being raped what they did to me. I don't know what to do. God has to do something, or this is not gonna work.
