I had all of my anger issues back under control and one person makes one comment and all of that hard work goes right out the window. It's amazing how quickly that can happen. At least this time, I recognized it faster and was able to get it under control before anyone noticed that I was acting differently. The hardest part is not getting frustrated. When you put so much work into getting something like this under control, it can really piss you off that a little inane comment can undo all of the work you have put in - then you are angry at the person that made you angry and you are REALLY pissed that you let it break down all of your barriers. Unfortunately, people don't differentiate what you are angry about - they just know you are angry.
As I continue my life with PTSD, I will share my challenges and discoveries on this blog.
