It isn't real, it's just an emotional response born of old stuff. I have a habit of self-identify through the roles that I instinctively try to impose on myself. It can be a struggle to keep from surrendering to this kind of thought process. I'm using you guys as part of my therapy routine. Fortunately this isn't a crisis of identity; this is just an emotional response that I'm trying to get a handle on.
It doesn't have anything to do with IV and she certainly isn't doing anything to me.
Also, "label allergy-attack" is fantastic!
