need help naming and giving a cost to a merit
The affects of many flailed braking points are put off for a time, usually till later while indulging in a vice to lessen the blow. When the affects come back however this in itself is a braking point and the severity of it is stronger the more braking points put off before hand, and the severity of them. This can be dangerous if abused and can lead to gaining derangements.

This is for chronicles of darkness / new world of darkness 2nd edition

Braking points are, well mental braking points.... makes sense some people can bottle that stuff up and put it off till later.

I was thinking 2~4 points works, and the name I'm lost on though I've had the suggestion of hail marry.

So, the character manages not to think about their problems until they relax, and then it all comes crashing down? How about:

"Unhealthy Repression."
"Denial Ain't a River in Egypt."
"Tightly Wound."
"Keeping a Lid on the Pressure."

In real life some people call that "Bottling Up," so that might be a good one.

Otherwise you could do:
Under the Rug
Skeletons in the Closet (or Bonekeeper, maybe? Just to go dark with it)
Not yet...
Now & Later (because candy!)

Or something. :D
