This happened to me recently, and I'm still thinking about it. I get into a conversation about something that I know I feel very, very strongly about, and I inevitably get hurt. At some point, I realize I should just stop responding. But I also feel as though my pov is being misrepresented or dismissed, so I keep talking and getting hurt. :<

In the aftermath, I analyze and reanalyze every little thing I and others have said. It's really awful and it sucks in all of my attention and energy like a black hole. I can't just "think about something else."

Does this happen to anyone else?
