It is possible I was born with a emotionally hypersensitive temperament and also experienced consistent abnormal emotionally distressed circumstances, resulting in consistently abnormal distressed bottom up "emotional regulation", interfering slightly with development of my top down emotional-self-regulation, in early life, before the age of 4-7.

In turn, my slight lack of development of emotional-self-regulation, has resulted in slightly less top down self-control over my bottom up "emotional regulation", after the age of 4-7, until now.

Awareness, free play and medication have really helped.
