My Dad yelled at me sharply, and I don't stand up for myself or anything when people get angry, I could but it makes the physical pain worse. So I just go off alone to process. I don't know if it is a good or bad thing but I feel more physical pain than upset when it happens. He yelled because I don't brush my teeth regularly, I don't get cavities anyway, and I started eating breakfast without brushing my teeth. I don't want to do something if I don't really believe in it and am just going through the motions, I guess I may start brushing my teeth again but it kind of bothers me that he gets his way by yelling. Like, why isn't he the one considered to have a mental health problem if he is the one who causes distress? Why am I the one considered to have a problem if I am suffering in a rational way?
