    it was not until i started to study counselling (by correspondance - so i'm doing it all on my own), that i understood that i am okay. i have also began to realise that i can achieve to my wildest dreams and the only person that can hold me back is me!!

    Anger is something that is not always controllable and it can't always be stopped by ones self. Some people need help stopping there anger problams. People also take there anger out in diffrent ways. My brother is Bi-Poler 1 with suicidal tendences and he takes medicin daily for his problam. I deal with anger or sadness by hurting myself,but my brother huts everyone else but his self most the time.

    Living in this type of household has taught me that if you need help don't be scared to admitt it because anger can take away from your life being happy and functional the way that most people wish for it to be.

    anger and aggression is in people who work construction and similar trades. they have a lot of prejudice. This needs to be addressed.

  • JR

    What about prejudice against people in the construction and related trades ...?

  • Josh

    I cnt seem to be calm, the smallest things make me furious and get me in trouble all the time, what should i do?

  • Anthony

    Is it really normal to be so angry all the time? I literally get quite irritated with certain noises or sounds while I am in the midst of doing something. I feel sometimes like actually hitting people for their unecessary statements, brazen behaviour, or even sounds such as coughing or even clearing their throat. Why I get so agrivated, I am not sure. While driving I snap if I hear a horn, or if someone gives me a dirty look. I am tired of having a short fuse and at my age, I don't think there is a way to change my reactions and behaviour.

    Naturally I am a super nice person. I will bend over backwards for anyone who is nice to me. I will extend my helping hand further than most anyone would. I enjoy good humor, and have the ability to take many things with a grain of salt. However, my rage seems to resinate a nastiness most people are warded off by. Mainly my rage kicks in at work. Every job I've ever had, minus one or two, I have been like a bull in a china shop. I have no idea what causes this. It usually ends up with me quitting my jobs shortly after being employed. I begin to hate everything and everyone after my first week at a new job. If you have any idea as to why this disorder may occur to someone, please let me know.

    i have anger issues. not sure y though. i have a great sense of humor i get along well with others, but once someone "pisses me off" it's like i feel my blood boil and it WILL NOT stop. it's as if i have to carry out an evil deed to whoever i feel "killed" my good mood and the anger won't go away until i do. Even if im "successful" at controling my rage for the moment, i still find myself gritting my teeth, or making smart-ass comments until i delivered a "relaxing" blow. what the hell is up with that!?

    also im not easily angered but once i get to the point of anger it's extremely difficult to maintain control of my actions

    You guys are all f*cking nuts. The majority of you don't even have the grasp of simplistic grammar. It would be of no surprise to me if in fact the main candidates of whom i speak are american. Yeah i know using all lower case for "america" contradicts what i have typed previously but i dont think the country deserves the capital in its name. You voted possibly one of the most retarded presidents in to power - "Bush" - and expected to get somewhere with this decision. I finish this hate speach with two words you may be able to grasp the full meaning of after all they are your words most commonly used by all the degenerates in your society, Oh wait... That just happens to be everyone so as i promised here are the two words... "F*CK YA'LL" that simplistic enough for you limp dicked sons of bitches!

  • mum of son

    I have a 28 yr old son who seems to be becoming more angry as time goes on. He has OCD thankfully only mild, he does not live at home with me now, he lives with his girl friend. The OCD may be getting a bit worse but I only know what his girl friend tells me. However, I do worry about him and only want to help. Please can you offer some advice as to how I can help him.

  • labels.....
