Just had a long talk with my therapist about my rage issues today. Sad When it happens, it comes on fast & furious, but like you said, I could be chillin' with my kids or just going about my business right after it's over.

The only times that it's tough to get past is if those around me don't give me that "instant" forgiveness and just move on from it. (not really just that forgiveness, just basically let it go or leave me alone) That doesn't mean the same level of rage continues, but it just takes longer then for me to get to that "calmness".

Doesn't happen anywhere near as much as it used to, but when it does, I really wouldn't want to be in the same room with me, or in close range of flying objects. Sad

Medications help. I was like that before I got on them. I'm sorry that you are suffering like this. I hope you find a solution to this soon.

bpjourney: This is me...like this evening, my little girl and I have been hanging out alone...dad is shut up in his room and even my mom, who is usually so understanding and protective of me is nowhere to be found...I feel alone and I hate depending on that "instant forgiveness" or understanding or constant support...I know it's hard as hell on them (guess i don't know how bad it is for them and they don't know how bad it is for me) but i feel shut out and ignored right now...I'm 30 yrs. old and I feel like I'm reacting like a 6 year old...but yeah, your reply was exactly how I feel, so thanks for that...Makes me feel not so alone after all. Btw....I see ppl have medications listed after their posts...how do I add mine? Thanks for anyone who answers.

Hey guys I feel exactly the same....I am relieved that other people feel this way and I am not nearly as alone in my thoughts as I thought I was. BP it is in My profile (settings) top left...the blurb or the "a little about me".

Yea i get this way. unfortunatly i dont have many people to lash out at so i go looking for things to take my anger out on. sometimes i wake up and feel like a lil badass who wants to punch everyone lol.
