    Emotionally abused by my sister.

    This is kind of a long story but I will try and keep it short. My sister emotionally abused me all my life, but she kept telling people how close we were, this would make me cringe and I did feel like telling her to get out of my life.

    How do you tell the difference- adult tantrum v meltdown ?

    At one point when faced by negative/stressful stimuli my anxiety would ramp up, I would become emotionally volatile, verbally very heated, and increasingly irrational and paranoid. It was not behaviour I did with the expectation of getting anything but more a reflex reaction. I think my...

    So, at this point i'm not sure there is any getting off of this roller coaster of emotion that I have been riding since adulthood.

    A little bit of information beforehand; I do already dissociate and I know what being numb feels like. I'm trying at this point to understand if I'm dissociating right now or if I'm emotionally numb or detached and mayhaps ways to go about dealing with/fixing it.
