    For me, no booze....and food is good, but....

    Just goofing around with me after giving me a little hug or positive affirmation, making me feel GOOD, strong again....

    I don't know how we would analyze this psychologically? Leading me back to my strength after soothing me a bit? But not like, "Okay, I'm leading you back to your strength, now." A bit more subtle.

    Essentially, what I've illustrated is: My husband leads us to a place we both feel comfy.

    Neither of us feels especially comfy:

    - Dealing with feelings
    - Showing empathy in the 'proper' way (whatever that means)
    - Sharing thinking - we do it differently

    So we lead each other back to our common Ne...where we can have fun and kind of...I don't know....Get rid of whatever in kind of a comedy/funny kind of way.

    But each person has his/her own way of dealing with stuff.

    The food ideas is a good one but once I get angry I'm not hungry anymore... So give food early before ENFP become crazy...

    Actually, I have realized lately that low blood sugar was making me fly of the handle... so food actually does help for me.

    for me it's being tired... tired me has a 150% greater chance of being totally illogical and emotional. hungry doesn't help either.

    Actually no I just have low blood sugar from to much activity and not enough food. I get busy, not good with planning or time management for myself.

    My six year old son DOES have type 1 diabetes though, which is why I am very aware of low blood sugar symptoms and finally figured it out in myself.

    Ahhh. I got excited because I have type 1 diabetes (diagnosed at age 12).
    Well, if you ever have questions about the ever-changing therapy options available, send me a message. (I'm hooked up to an insulin pump and continuous glucose monitor.)

    Thanks! My son has been on a pump for a year, and when he gets a little older we want to get him a glucose monitor. When questions arise I'll be sure to hit you up.

    Stealing from the other dude who did it. (I forget who, and I'm not going to browse through five billion pages)

    Here is what sometimes used to happen when between my husband and me when we didn't know each other that well.

    IT: So how are you?
    EF: Ugh, it's been a rough day. ***goes in room, closes door, zones out like a zombie***
    IT: What's the matter?
    EF: Bad class today. X didn't show up. Y acted like a fart shit. And Z was being a total dick.
    IT: You can't educate stupid people.
    EF: Yeah, I know, but it's really frustrating.
    IT: It shouldn't bother you. You let too many things bother you.
    EF: Yes, but it matters, I mean really. And it does really bother me.
    IT: Well, then you have to work on yourself.
    EF: **feels blood pressure rising** Well, I know, but if they were only....
    IT: But they weren't. Don't always focus on what could be or what should be. It wasn't. It's over. Don't worry about it.
    EF: But it bothers me.
    IT: Well it shouldn't bother you.
    EF: *sigh* Okay, I went through all this trouble to prepare and do this and that, and it didn't even work.
    IT: You shouldn't put too much effort into things people don't appreciate.
    EF: BUT I HAVE TO!!!!!
    IT: Who says you have to??? No one says you have to!!! YOU just have an obsession with making everything perfect.
    EF: Well excuse the hell out of me if I try to do things right!
    IT: Why are you yelling?
    EF: I'M NOT YELLING!!!!!
    IT: You just DID! Just because YOU have a shitty day doesn't mean you can blame ME!!!!!!!!!
    EF: ***about ready to flip her lid*** OK, listen, YOU'RE NOT HELPING!!!
    IT: Well, what do you want??? Why do you always have to bring your work problems home! Leave them there!
    EF: I CAN'T DO THAT!!!!!!!!
    IT: WELL LEARN IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    EF: You know what? Just FUCK IT and FUCK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    **slams door**

    Now that's not really the MATURE way to handle it. But it's just two different ways of thinking/whatever coming together. Nowadays it's more like this:

    IT: How was your day?
    EF: Oh, well, it could have been better. But whatever. How was your day?
    IT: It was good. My day's always good. Better that you're here.
    EF: Aww, thanks. I need a hug. I had a kind of a rough day.
    IT: Awww c'mere. ***hugs me*** Why, what happened?
    EF: Oh, well, no biggie. Just the usual stuff. But sometimes it kinda piles on and you're like, wrrrraraararararrargh.
    IT: Well, what did the fart shits do this time?
    EF: OMG everyone was a fart shit. They farted here and shat there til I almost called the fire department.
    IT: HAHAHA! Yeahhhhh and then...***random craziness***
    EF: OH YEAH!!! ***giggles, giggles*** And then ***more random shit***
    IT: Well, you're home now, screw the fart shits, let's eat and have some fun.
    EF: Yeah, fuck em!!!!!!! ***giggles and smiles***
