Addicted to Chaos and Feeling Excited by the Misery- WTF!!!!

DrBev, Am I a crisis junkie? I keep attracting Drama Queens. I feel like a magnet for sadness and misery relationships. Click on the video below for symptoms and pattern Misery Addicts. How can I be addicted to feeling bad? Am I crazy? Don’t people normally seek out pleasure rather than emotional pain? I create drama; choose bad boi/gurl friends and associates when things are going good in my life. I try to be productive and happy, but, it takes so such effort. Maybe, I have become accustomed to the pain and think that there is no solution to overcome it. Truth is, sometimes I don’t feel worthy; Don’t deserve to be happy, so I do things to sabotage the people, places and things that can let me be happy. Join DrBev at Emotions-R-Us, Reality Therapeutic Radio. We will focus on self-misery and depression when your negativity feeds on itself. What are the symptoms and causes of a misery addiction? How does a childhood full of drama, trauma, and chaos connect to my adult relationships and addiction to misery?

Tuesday, March 29th @ 8 p.m. EST, join DrBev at Emotions-R-Us, Reality Therapeutic Radio and Guest, Dahni McPhail, Author “Two and a Possible”.  A true to life fiction; real and personal representation of experiencing the reality and dangers of obsession and life threatening circumstances evolving from misery addicted relationships to “love gone mad”.  Together we will explore the topic of “Addicted to Chaos and Feeling Excited by the Misery- WTF!!!!”

    Takes a lot of practice to not become a “slave” to our feelings. Thank you for this!

    Wow! Sadly, this speaks to me – never quite understood it before. I’m on the upward incline though…

    Thanks Dr Bev

    Wonderful video. Seeing myself in much of it. I started out the year with a promise to move away from this type of high. Yet, I found myself wallowing in it again very recently. Getting it together. Thank you for sharing, Dr.

    I will share this with a friend of mine. This video detailed her destructive relationship to the letter. I will encourage her to tune in, or better yet, we will tune in together.

    very intriguing, I can pick out a few people in my life it fits with well, including myself… Need to look deeper & start the rewiring process with in my own brain.

    Excellent video! This my second time watching it, and I saw somethings this time, that I hadn’t seen the first time around. I know this is going to be a dialogue full of “Aha! moments. The thing that really caught my attention this time, were the characteristics listed as indicators of this condition. It appears that one could be suffering from this condition, and the light not go on because in some respects they see a benefit, such as, being “saved from total destruction”. How could that be? Is it possible that a person could suffer from this condition in part? Is this condition progressive? I can see some of the traits in myself, and also some of my friends, but the traits are so contradictory to everything else about them. This raises the question: Is it the behavior, or is it the context in which the behavior shows itself, that is the problem? There are some behaviors that are seen as healthy or unhealthy, based on who it is that the behavior is coming from. This may have to be a series. I believe there are many people who fall into this group, in degrees, if not full blown.

    Great Video and overview of information. I think I MAY HAVE KNOWN a Misery Addict- but got rid of them early. Having a mental health background, I recognized the signs early. Keep up the great work Dr.Bev!
