    Rage

    There are only two emotions I experience that I have no control over. They are Anger and Depression. As far as control goes, its an impossibility. However, I 'bottle' instead...which is a very brief fix with a disasterous outcome. Just the other day I was overcome with my Anger...

    I Might Be a Grouch

    I suffer from anxiety and depression. I get panic attacks, but I have learned how to control these, so that's a plus. I attract some people who are sad, it always ends badly. I have started to realize that I am very blunt, possibly even rude sometimes when unhappy topics come up...

    I want to drink. I want to listen to music,

    dance. Do things hardcore. Some things bad. Extreme. I want to feel things. Let it out. Let it all out. It might even hurt a little but I want that too. I'm messed up and perfect. A kind of perfection you may not even understand.

    Yes, I Have Intense Emotions: But Don't Tell Me What They Are Called!

    I am suspicious, once again, as I was over the Borderline Personality Disorder diagnosis (I wrote a diatribe over that). Intense emotions are common and wonderful as they are dreadful. We live in a time where everything needs a name and it just might be a pathology.I saw the word...

    Embers Trembling Below The Surface Of Tranquil Waters

    To say I have intense emotions would be an understatement. The littlest criticism can wound me greatly why the most racist slur will roll off my back like a duck. I brood alot and despite seeming to remain calm, rest assured that within these tranquil waters are embers that...

    So Much Emotions.

    I always felt emotions but today at therapy, my emotions that I'm feeling are really intense, at least in the pattern of relationships, which makes me wonder if I can even get into a relationship. This shocked me because if I am feeling them intensely then some of the emotions I...

    That feeling of rejection you get when you know a message you've sent someone has been seen but they don't reply. Why do I have to feel these emotions so intensely?
