  1. TRIGGERS?

Well my MAIN ONE is a very sensitive subject, the one that set me off and caused me to BLOW A HEAD GASKET and "GIVE ME THE BI-POLAR" in the first place!

A HORRIBLE ALLIGATION against me by my wife that was trying to get rid of me that prevented me from seeing my children ever again!

Now THAT HURTS!!!! My current wife sometimes asks me why I'm crying and seems to think that it's because I still "care" for the ex, and I'm quickto inform her to relax and that I stopped loving her 5 years BEFORE the divorce ever even took place.

I MISS MY CHILDREN!!!!

My wonderful expert came back and took over.
