    When I'm being yelled at

    or someone is screaming at me I shut down. I can't handle it and I start freaking out. I eventually get over it, but I avoid that person for quite some time after.

    When I am being yelled

    and screamed at, I shut down. I can't handle it at all. I can take a lot, lord knows that, but when you get up in my face, and you yell and scream at me, I just can't handle that, not at all. Its something that just does not go over well at all.

    mostly I take it in and mill it over,

    if they're still yelling at me then I consider if they're worth my time and if they're still screaming after that then I walk away and ignore them while pondering more important things like what to have for lunch. this process takes all of 5 minutes or less

    because I misunderstood her. I told her I wanted some new school supplies. I still have the same binders & folders from all the 3 years of middle school. I'm starting 11th grade next month. All I wanted was new binders, folders, sticky notes, & a new pencil case. It came to over...

    I don't really go into a shut down though.

    When im yelled at I seem to go into a "whatever" State and I just don't listen to anything that person says until I've cooled down. And if the yelling makes me mad I have to leave the room and even the house before I do something I'll regret

    When my Mom would yell at me,

    I would just stare at her and concentrate hard on something else. Sometimes I would think of a joke and then I would have to stop myself from smiling, because then that would make her more angry. She would then get upset, because when she asked me a question I wouldn't...
