I would be interested in hearing musings on this question. I feel like I'm one of those people who say, "Huh? Who me? Angry?!" I told myself that I've learned to accept some difficult circumstances I've been in for the past few several years - okay-much of my adult life...parenting/life/financial. But then I find myself with spikes of anger popping up with a few predictable - and relatively benign- triggers. (Like visiting with a good friend who seems to have a lived a charmed existence. And yes, I know we have our crosses to bear but truth be told...she's pretty clueless about say - when it comes to the load hubby and I have carried raising a special need's child. When she showed me the photos of the upscale resort they'll be enjoying shortly I wanted to strangle her. Especially given our financial situation....not sure how some of our bills are going to get paid...much less cover a very modest Christmas for the kids.) I strive to be a glass half full sort of gal but I really wondering if in my heart of hearts...I've just got some serious denial. Especially given the on-going persistence of some of my TMS symptoms. And to be honest, I'm eager to move through this crap! I know it's a journey but geesh..... I'd love to hear your thoughts...and thanks for listening. And thanks again, Forest, for the fun emoticons. I need one for denial...you know, fingers in the ears with the face singing, "la, la, la, I can't HEAR you!"
