I Think I Might Need Anger Management

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 137 People

    I often get so furious at people

    that I lock my self up in a room and cry with rage; I sometimes end up biting myself or punching things, or slamming my head against a wall. I feel alone, sleep-deprived, overworked, and surrounded by idiots. I usually escalate small arguments by screaming and I'm told all the...
