I see nothing "out of line" with offering a suggestion or a line of research that I may not be aware of. You are just trying to help. Heck, even CWMI's suggestion to get my head out of my colon was meant to help. wink

Never heard of emotional pain addiction. But I have all the behavioral characteristics of an addict, so maybe that fits me.

Care to suggest resources?

When you can see it coming, duck!
