We all carry a certain amount of inundation in our bodies for the perceived world around us. This amount is like a water level that when exceeded cause us to fight or flight.
In Adult Children, this normal level of inundation is increased by a certain amount causing the person to be walking around on egg shells just waiting for the other shoe to drop and the fight/flight to kick in.
I am an Adult Child and I get inundated by the silliest things:
– I hate wrist watches because they’re too constricting
– I avoid wallets because they feel uncomfortable to sit on.
– I rip all my clothes off when I get home from work and wear my boxers because clothes are too constrictive.
Inundation cause people to run from relationships, avoid advancement as well as avoid groups and other people. Inundation is sometimes the culprit behind loners and lifetime bachelors as well as mid life crises and mental break downs.
Sometimes my cat inundates me when it wants to snuggle. When I realized that, I realized I had a problem.
