Throughout much of my childhood, I’d get anxious and upset when my parents argued. They’d fight over misunderstandings and stuff that didnt matter. When they fought, I’d either attempt to ignore it (to no avail) or get upset and cry. This affected me so much and for so long, that even into my adulthood, the fighting was still affecting me. On one evening in 2011, I threatened to harm myself with a pair of scissors when my parents were having an argument (I was 20 or 21 at this point and still living with them). I did this NOT to actually harm myself but to get my parents attention to get them to stop arguing.
