Philip Robinson says
Loss of control has happened to me more than I’d like… but explaining it just makes it sound like an excuse, and (from experience, anyway) people won’t have any of that…
Anna Konda says
Story of my life..
Meghan Morales says

Amalita Egwu says
Joe Hayabusa Brooks. *cuddle*
Emma Louise Sheppard says
Wow to true Jako King
Felis D says
Been on both sides of this. In the same relationship. *sigh*
Depression is a serious issue…but is this not also showing a verbally abusive and codepent relationship? That’s terrifying
Tak Wolf says
No, its not. Abusive and codependent people do this to manipulate. This is how it feels. You feel like its all a lie, like there is no love and nobody ever loved you, and all that poison comes out, and when it passes you are sick and sorry.You can’t imagine how you felt that way, and are horrified and ashamed of the things you said.

My friend has a kid who does this regularly… and the doctors keep telling her children that young can’t be clinically depressed.
Nat Ford (Mx) says
I was depressed in my pre-teens in the 70s. Whilst I was not diagnosed until I was at uni at 18, I was definitely clinically depressed from age nine.
That’s a notion (children can’t be depressed) that was officially discarded in the mid ’80s. Nevertheless it continues to create woe and fails to remediate sorrow.
It can theoretically, happen to anyone.
Tereza Teya Česalová says
This is exactly how I’m feeling. Sometimes I can love, sometimes I can only scream and hate, but I really don’t mean it… Just losing control 🙁
Tiamat Noricum says
yep. Know this too… every relationship I had…
Wow! So me and what my other half has put up with. Now I see it in our child.
Patrick Schuster-Wiley says
Sakura Nikita Davis
This made me cry

Secret name says
My mom does this and says horrible things to me but then tells me I’m not supportive because that’s her way of expressing herself. I don’t know what to do anymore because I can’t tell her how I’m struggling because she just throws it in my face and says I have no reason to be depressed.
Dana W says
Depression does not need a reason. She is just trying to remain the center of attention.
