So have anyone been trying to tackle your anger/madness/emotional issues? (most about anger)
How did it go?
What did they do?






Please say if there is another thread about the same stuff!

That's not others' business, I grew up expected to sort myself out.

I got through my troubles by myself and with my best friends...some things are best kept secret. I put up with my siblings making me angry and I use to smash things

I guess they couldn't handle it well. Not their fault, though. I'm too much even for me...

My parents usually beat it out of me or sent me to the batting cage or the gym. Depends on the situation.
My old friends left. I don't really care because they were bad friends. My new friends just kinda laugh and when I need it, they're there for me. I don't really show intense emotions to my friends.

I go and play some video games or watch hentai. I don't know. Anything really.

Mostly anger huh? Usually the only one that deals with my legitmate anger is my boyfriend. I've been working on trying to avoid my explosions by attempting to be honest about my concerns or issues beforehand. Doesn't always work though because sometimes I'm unaware of what's building up myself.

I have 3 stage anger.

1) I start getting snippy and passive aggressive. I'll ask very interrogative questions. This is the warning sign of an imminent pending rage catastrophe. (This is where I'll try to be honest once I realizing I'm starting to get angry)
2) Explosion. Curse words everywhere. Aggressive (may throw things or chase down). Loud. Will say very hateful things I don't mean. Usually lasts 10 minutes max.
3) Cry. Whenever I'm done with my anger the amount of emotional buildup in it always makes me cry afterward. I don't get angry without crying about it afterward.

So yeah. Once I'm at stage 2 there's little to no dealing with it aside from not actually physically harming anybody and watching my tongue as much as able. So I work to avoid it.



When I'm happy I jump around my room and physically harm myself. I haven't really worked out a solution to this one.

When I'm sad I'll cry and avoid people. I want to be alone. To help myself I'll usually do jigsaw puzzles or watch a movie. Maybe have a shot or two of whiskey.

My friends call me Spock cause I finds things illogical or I don't show much outward emotion if I see someone get bullied or talk smack about my family then my blood boils and things usually get physical because I am a contractor and can fix things I got no problem kicking down a door or smashing a window usually I come over next day and fix it better than before and sometimes fix something else as a gesture or apology

Well, I am the stereotypical "fiery" Latina with jealous and aggressive tendencies. I have learned over the years to calm down and question the rationality of my anger, so its nowhere near as bad. My boyfriend is so patient and understanding with me when I do snap though. He also just laughs when I get mad about other things, aka my road rage. Unfortunately when I am sad or upset I avoid contact with people and coop myself up in the hole of my room. This directly stems from my GAD and I also have the hardest time opening up about my emotions out of fear. But I have been slowly getting better about that, and again my boyfriend has been so understanding. I think its important to find someone like that when you have a mental illness. My ex was an instigator and THAT ended hellishly.

I've become pretty good at suppressing them. Rational thinking usually solves the issue. And, if it fails to sufficiently extinguish the emotional flare-up, asking myself if it's worth it to lash out usually does the trick. The answer is usually no.

I always have what some people call "a poker face". I can be so angry, so sad or so happy but my face would always be the same -->


Needless to say, I never had a problem with others dealing with my emotions because I never show them. I only have 3 people I fully trust and they have seen my real anger, the bad thing is that they are similar to me when we're truly angry so, instead of calming the other person down, we are at each other's throats XD

Sometimes I wish I could be like that. My boyfriend is able to rationally think when he's angry, though it may be more diluted rational than his usual. He'll be short worded but he never has an explosive reaction. It really depends on personality. I'll be angry even when I know I'm wrong. Heart over head in my case when it comes to any emotion.

Those with cold anger have to worry about bottling things up too long.
Those with hot anger have to worry about controlling themselves in their rampages.
