It’s like yelling into a hole all day. Then once in while, on a variable reinforcement schedule, a faint voice sends back a cry. So the next day you yell louder and more often. But after a while, the yelling just gives you a headache.

This is such a good description of what it feels like. You know what’s weird? If you take a bit of a break, and come back, you can shout all you like but it’s as if your voice is suddenly much quieter or everyone’s wearing earplugs — no matter how loud you shout, no one hears you.
