i can't keep doing this. i can't keep running back to you every time you show me some sort of false hope, leading me to believe that it isn't really over between us. it would be so much easier for me if you would just outright say that you aren't going to come back to me anymore. but you won't, because that's not who you are. you won't let me let you go, even though you let me go as soon as you knew you had me

Making Sure Emotional Flooding Doesn't Capsize Your Relationship
This quote makes so much sense to me. When being flooded by emotions or symptoms, it can be overwhelming. They come out of nowhere at times. I am not always aware of the triggers that set me off until much later. Although it's good to know the trigger that knowledge doesn't help at the time of flooding. It does help me to know what to avoid the next time so that I don't turn to isolation. This site gives practical advice of how to cope with the flood before it becomes a rip tide.
