I usually just go out, take a walk and hit some walls on my way back

Do you take out anger physically?

I let it build up and then I think it away, kinda like meditating only not relaxing.

I either listen to music or hit the heavy bag or both.

Listening to relaxing music, especially when taking a time out from a loud discussion or fight with someone.

Most of the time my anger just goes away on it's own.

Swallow it down for years until I find someone deserving to unleash it on.

I have more trouble dealing with anger after my brain injury.

It used to be very rare that I would express anger or frustration, I'd keep it to myself. In my mind, there is no point in me being openly angry - it's a waste of energy and will likely just cause/prolong conflict.

Since cracking my head though, I find myself raising my voice in anger sometimes, and feeling frustrated over things that wouldn't phase me before. I hope it'll go away in time, it's only been a few months since the injury. I can still take a deep breath and continue on with life calm and collected, but it's harder and takes longer to get over it. I wouldn't say I have anger issues now, but it's embarrassing to not have the control over my emotions that I used to.

Well either bottle it up, go for a drive, or go to the range.

In all seriousness, it usually takes something pretty significant to make me go off on the person. I'm not a hothead by any stretch of the imagination, and am still quite soft spoken, but there are certain things I won't tolerate and if it's necessary, I can get ugly.

That being said, I never resort to doing something physical unless it's in self defense. I usually just go by myself until I settle down, and then later I may release my feelings through crying and ranting in my journal. It's not in my nature to be furious for long periods of time and I try to calm down as quickly as I'm able so I can think rationally.
