This has been a rough year for me, I think unrelated to gfgland. Or maybe not. Am back in counseling, and something that seems to be coming up often, to my surprise, is that I'm not expressing a whole lot of emotions to anyone, but especially seem to be incapable of expressing anger, even when it's (I think) justified. My inclination is to chalk it up to a dozen or so years of swallowing emotional responses to thank you's junk, since he just fed off any emotion I showed. I seem to be presenting an absolutely neutral/flat affect across the board, though inside neutral is about the last thing I am. Just wondering if any of you PE-ers have noticed long-term effects from raising your difficult children, or if I'm just completely off my rocker.
