Re: I have no control over my emotions

On more than one occasion it has been noted that my response to sudden unpleasant surprise has been "primary".
Your emotions can easily get the better of you. After all, the limbic system is a more fundamental system in the brain than the cortex. Control of emotions is, therefore, an illusion.
I have been struggling with this problem all my life, hence the name Sarek. It is appropriate for more than one reason.
