I’m not a person prone to anger or angry outbursts. It’s in my nature to remain calm under most circumstances, even antagonistic ones. Yet here I was, standing up at a table at lunch, my head feeling like it is going to burst from elevated blood pressure. I am shouting down at my seated mother. She appears shocked. I am already embarrassed inside. My children never see me like this. They are confused and a little bit afraid, I think. I am not proud of this momentary loss of control. The conversation leading up to it went something like this. I am trying to repeat it as best I can remember it.
