I find emotional situations hard to deal with --- for example, arguments -- I get upset and burst into tears if someone speaks to me harshly and am totally incapable of sticking up for myself. Sometimes I will just walk away as the stress of the situation leaves me "lost for words" . I refuse to get involved because I know it will be me who "loses the battle" and comes away in floods of tears and an emotional wreck.
Sometimes I will just agree with people (even though I don't!!)just to avoid conflict -- which leaves me feeling "weak, feeble and inferior". As my OH says "I can't win an argument with a paper bag!!"
All my life I have been terrified of getting into trouble because I know it will make me feel dreadful. I know I can't change my personality, but any ideas how I can handle things better -- I guess some of this is due to the fibromyalgia making me feel less confident about myself. I will be grateful for any ideas xxx
