Not as Sensitive Now
I am usually not quite as emotionally sensitive as I used to be. I don’t know why. I don’t know if it’s because my meds are numbing me out, or if it’s because of learning DBT skills. Or a bit of both. I know that some things are below the surface and that someday they’ll explode. I won’t be able to hold it in any longer. I don’t know when that will be. I’ve been doing well for several months now. I try to be there for my family every day. They need me to be a wife, mother, etc. I think that’s a huge part of it. I have to put on my “Happy” mask every day, until I become really numb because I’m so used to wearing it 24/7.
Does anyone else experience this? What do you think it is? Do you think it’s a form of protecting myself from too much emotional pain? What should I do? I blog. That helps quite a bit. I feel a lot of support from followers on my blog, Facebook, etc.
Thanks everyone for listening to me vent. It is so appreciated.
Till next time,
