I am having the weirdest thing happen to me. I am usually a person who keeps everything deep inside and is scared of ever upsetting anybody or voicing my true opinion. My family and friends call me “a people pleaser”. The past two weeks, I have just been saying everything and anything I feel and think. It’s like I have been completely unable to tell anything but the truth. It’s so weird and quite distressing. I have upset one of my oldest and dearest friends beyond comprehension, and now I have just gone and done it to a complete stranger on an MS Society page on Facebook!! I literally can’t stop thinking and speaking in an honest manner. I actually called the girl on the MS Society page an IDIOT…I could not believe it, I felt mortified…but it was obviously what I was thinking at the time.
I’ll be watching TV, speaking with family, watching people in the street…and literally nothing but completely blunt thoughts which would usually be deep in the back of my mind would come to the surface. I really don’t like it.
Has anybody else experienced this? I feel I am becoming an overly opinionated person…literally in the matter of two weeks!
Please help!! I am scared to say anything to my Consultant in case he thinks I am completely bizarre and it’s all “psychosomatic”. I am very lucky to have aquired an MS Psychologist (diagnosed just a year)…so I wonder if I should tell her?
Am I alone?
