I just had a fight with my sister. We were talking about my gyn visit and she used terminology anatomy, and I freaked out. She knows I can not handle those words and uses them carelessly in front of me. She wanted to discuss my reaction and tell me how abnormal I am as I even freak no matter who says the word. She said I really have a problem. I told her I am working on it with my therapist but she wanted to talk about how I shut down the conversation with her just now. She said I wouldn't react that way with a pastor or anyone else who said the word and I said I do. She said you really have a problem. She lacks understanding of the trauma that certain words have on me and is angry that I react the way I do. Just because it doesn't bother her she can't understand how it bothers me so much. So now I am in a heightened anxiety mood after the fight and hearing the word. Yuk.
