Missy is an emotional addict. Her uncontrollable emotion is anger. Missy says she has been “wired this way” for as long as she can remember. Her temper was short, and her sister used to tease her relentlessly. Her parents were of no help, and often encouraged the sister’s behavior. Her anger issues would lead to an extreme dislike of other children, and constant depression. But Missy’s mother would not hear of her claims of not feeling emotionally well.
