Repression of your Unconscious Thoughts Rears its Head When You Are Drunk

If I have some gender issues and stuff that come out whenever I am drunk but that seem disgusting to me when I am not drunk what does this mean? Am I repressing when I am not drunk or is it just the alcohol creating something for the thrill of it?

Dr. Shirley Schaye Says...

I am sorry to hear that you are struggling with this. Yes, you wisely are understanding that you are repressing the feelings that are coming out when you are drunk. If those thoughts were not in your unconscious they would not be creeping out when you are drunk.

I noticed that you haven't asked what to do about it. If you do want to follow-up I would be very glad to help you seek out the right kind of help for this. Not all therapies that exist out there would be helpful.
