So one of my biggest issues with all this is that I don't feel that I have repressed emotions as such, infact it is quite the opposite I'm too emotional! I do have anxiety and depression, although I strongly feel that the depression is mostly due to the pain I have suffered with over the past 8 years. It has stopped my doing so many things and has ruined a large part of life. I am not saying that I don't have any undiscovered emotion or trauma as I don't know for sure and I did have a complicated childhood ect. However, I can't relate to those who say that they are 'copers' or repress their emotions generally or 'feel flat'. I am a very sensitive ad passionate person and I often feel everything and constantly want to talk about it to the point of annoyance. I do have lots of inner rage but I am aware of it I just don't know how to let go of it really. I have noticed however that when I am feeling very anxious and emotionally unstable my symptons are almost non existant and when I finally pick myself up and feel better then that's when I flare up. Does anyone else experience this? My friend has told me that out bodys can become addicted to stress hormones and experuence withdrawals which I find interesting but I don't know how true this is and I am yet to look into it. Please help?
