You all know how it is when you see that family member that just LOVES to say that one thing to rattle your nerves to your core! All you can do is scream, shriek and cry in the corner--or go out and do something questionable, such as over-indulging in the holiday punch or connecting up with old flames you know you ought not even speak, too.
However, what happens when you have experienced a severe mental and nervous breakdown? What should you do?
If you are around family or friends and you have a compelling need to get out, then what you do is say, "I am going to get out" and just leave the hot situation. For every minute of heated arguing, it takes 20-30 minutes to cool off and speak from a more serene place.
