    once, when my daughter was being especially disobedient, and i was in an especially bad mood, i threw the peanut butter and jelly sandwich i was eating at the wall.  i know there are more such incidents, but i can't think of any right off.

    Unintentionally, Sometimes.

    I'm not one to throw things across a room or break things on purpose, but when I'm angry I get much rougher handling things and have been know to sort of throw or shove things about rather than calmly move them when I'm terribly upset.

    However...

    I have to say that I've been a very good girl and have really only thrown one thing in the past like, 9 years.  Before that, however, when I lived with my parents, I was a regular repeat offender.  I was throwing things more like every couple of months. But, for the...

    Latest Victim - Leather Ottoman

    I'm usually well tempered,  and don't often throw things.  However, I have to work pretty hard at it.  I use to be awful as a kid - starting out by self harming and moving on  to  destroying my room in frustration.  Time, work, and patience have allowed me to work on this...

    Have to Be Very Very Mad Though

    It takes a lot but when very mad or frustrated, I do tend to throw things against the nearest wall, usually the book that I am working out of at that moment, particularly if hard back or a mug, tend to show just enough constraint not to throw small children or animals.

    I Held My Parents Responsible

    When I was a teenager I have this temper and would throw things when I get angry. I always feel awful afterwards. Feeling sorry for myself. I hated myself for this. I don't want anybody getting hurt and at same time I want people to know I can't help myself. It feels like I want...

    I Threw Something. and Then Regretted It

    I can have anger issues.  I will curse a person out and be so overwhelming that whoever crossed me will leave the room/house and not come back until they think I've cooled off...this is something I really, really need to work on.  It's only when I'm very angry that I...

    I'm Getting Better, I Think

    I used to destroy my entire room when I was a kid. It was the only way I knew how to get the anger out. WHen I got older I did the same thing. Nowadays I don't do it as much anymore. I think in the past 9 months I have gotten mad and thrown something twice. SO maybe I'm getting a...

    My Bad Temper

    I hate to admit this but it's true.  When I get really mad at my boyfriend, I throw thing - usually the telephone - maybe throw a picture on the ground.....whatever is closest when he says something that just eats away at me.  I have always been this way.  For me...

    It's Rare to Get Me This Mad Though..

    When I get furious.. seeing red, cussing up a storm furious... my first reaction? Grab something and hurl it at something else. Preferably something alive. I remember one time where I was seriously pissed off, I took a pen and threw it at my stepbrother. Well, he just laughed...

    And It Takes a Lot to Get Me This Mad....

    but yea, i think its more frustration than anger that makes me do this.  Extreme frustration (no, not of the sexual kind you pervs).  The last thing i threw was a bag of sugar into the corner where the door is for the basement stairs.  Made one hell of a mess...
