Anger management!  

Sunday, 30 August 2009

I like to think of myself as a fairly calm person, I feel I have had alot to deal with in life, and I always pick myself up, dust myself off and start again.

Okay, so I can almost hear you all scoffing in amazement, and I know I have told you all about a few of the times I have gotten very angry...but that doesn't count, they were all instances of protecting/sticking up for my children, everyone knows that's 'free' anger...

But there are just days when I feel so bloody angry I actually want to jump up and down and have a full blown tantrum.

It's not anything specific, its just a feeling, I don't get it, there are days when people are so rude to me, or so horrid to me, and I can smile and let it go, then there are days when a tiny thing, no-ones doing, can send me over the edge.

I'm pretty good at hiding it (surprise surprise) but where does it go, what happens to the internalised anger???

    I know, that happens to me too. Nothing has changed, except maybe the atmosphere.

    You sound perfectly normal to me, not that there was any doubt! I have times like this. I think we all do. For whatever reason we can be a bit more sensitive and the anger flows more freely.

    sometimes jumping up and down really helps--I catch a glance at myself and start laughing at how silly I look. Don't be hard on yourself--you been working overtime taking care of everyone...perhaps, you need a little time to yourself? take care of you--best c

    Sally, We sound a lot alike. I think is normal too.

    Have you ever tried taking a small pillow and throwing it at a closed door? Had a roommate in college that did that - pretty effective!!!

    Be well,

    I know what you mean. Some days it's just so much harder than others. And it can't ALL be hormones.

    Sally please chant "Fuck em Fuck Em Fuck em all" until you feel better ... if that don't work ...have a vodka and coke and try again - repeat until you feel better...

    The other suggestions are nice .. but mine is better.... I said it and you all know its true!

    I've experienced this to, and it's really annoying. Personally I like to take my anger, internalized or not, out in video games.

    There is something very cathartic about firing a machine gun at someone as they fire at you, and because you're just a little bit faster, your elbow to the face lands, and he crumbles to the ground instead of you.

    Oddly enough, I've noticed a direct link between level of anger and skill of play, :)

    Don't know if this helped, but that's what I do.
