I Have Anger Problems

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 1,085 People

    So lately I have been forgetting to take my

    Prozac (it doesn't help much anyways) but when I don't take it I get aggravated so easily. So today was a particularly bad day for me. It started with a stupid little comment my fiancé made (that I can't even remember now, that's how not big of a deal it actually was) and I...

    As I said I know it may sound pathetic

    but it is a problem I cannot seem to overcome. This on top of many other things has pushed me over the edge. I am holding on to the corner of that edge. Just hoping and waiting for an answer. After a life time I am beginning to wonder whether this...

    Sudden, Short Bursts

    I tend to have sudden bursts of anger that usually seem to come from nowhere to the person the anger is directed at.  This usually only happens at people I'm very close to.  The absolute worst thing that makes me do this is when I'm on the phone with someone talking and...

    You Would Never Understand

    I used to lash out, and it really helped.  Now I can't... apparently it's bad, to beat the crap out of someone, when they insult you. People don't understand, they think I should be able to control it.  I am trying my best.  I haven't hit anyone...

    I've been suppressing it

    for years and now it becomes a ticking time bomb and the anger is persistent and consistent toward certain situation. And I'm so angry I'd lost control and imagine everything burning, forgetting about the ones I love and feel only hatred towards everyone else.

    For the past few days I've been really moody

    with my friends. I'd snap on them one minute and then next period I'll be fine. My tolerance for them just fluctuates and somedays I just REALLY hate them.

    For an example, if my mother put a plate the way I don't in the rack, I'll tell her she's stupid. Yesterday, we started badminton in gym and my partner - who's also my friend - was horrible. She couldn't serve and she didn't use any energy to hit. I tried to keep it in. After...

    I Don'T , But I Like The Idea Of This Group

    :)The habit of lashing out lies deep within us all. Our fuse tends to be very short, and it is almost impossible to stop ourselves once we start to explode. If we try to squelch the explosion, it will only implode. We have to train ourselves to prevent the explosion from...
