Does anyone have any suggestions in regards to how to deal when faced with an angry person? I just tend to completely shut down and almost black out whenever I sense that someone is angry with me. If they start yelling then it is like I go deaf and cannot hear what they are saying. I completely disassociate and even sometimes curl up in a ball on the floor and just wait for it to be over. I also cannot tell the difference between a person being annoyed or angry, I just tend to jump strait to thinking they are angry if I have done anything wrong or think I may have made them mad. Are there any good ways to deal with this or to be able to not disassociate or shut down? I mean, I would like to be able to disagree or even get into an argument with someone without shutting down.
