    Sometimes...i Have A Bit Of A Temper...

    I used to be this really calm, laid back type of person and really patient. It used to be hard to make me angry. Recently, I feel like I've totally lost control of my temper. I get angry at sometimes the smallest things. And not just angry, like...furious. I don't know if its...

    Looking For the Answer

    I have always worn my emotions on my sleeves.

    I get angry so fast that it shocks me sometimes. I black out and before I know it I'm back and I'm looking at the person who made me angry. I don't mean black out as in passing out. I can feel and see myself going off but I can't hear or comprehend any of it. I don't understand...

    Stop This Cycle ... I Wanna Get Off!essthensuddenoutbursts

    I take it out on anything

    or anyone. My poor family and boyfriend have been the recipients of my anger. I feel like I am ruining the lives of all those around me. I can't keep hurting people but I can't stop. It is especially worse if I am tired. It is especially bad when I am tired after work. I wish I...

    A Penny For My Thoughts? Make It A Couple Thousand, And Maybe We'll Talk.

    I've had anger issues for a while it seems, but no one is truly aware of the severity and depth of it sometimes; probably because I'm too afraid to allow anyone to give me a penny for my deepest thoughts.. I'm not entirely sure I even feel comfortable in my own thoughts - it's a...

    The problem with my anger is not hurting others or getting into a verbal brawl of epic proportions. No, no, no the problem is decidedly more complex. I don't know how to 'disarm' my anger. I can't seem to be able to just think of neutral topic or find the root cause and work...

    Too Much to Bear.

    Sometimes the anger in me is bigger than I am, I can't hold it in, it is bursting my guts almost.  I just don't know how to get rid of it or make it go away.
