Listen to classical music, cook, saw wood with a hand saw, rant out loud by myself, maybe hide the lightbulbs in whomever-angered-me's home, play with animals, take a short nap- usually in that order.

I try to do things that keep me away from others, so that I don't do anything violent.

Not well.

I usually bottle up my emotions, including anger, until they reach unhealthy levels. I also get angry and irritated quite easily.

When I'm sensible enough to actually try to cope, I usually do something relaxing such as a bubble bath and music to blow off some steam.

Very angrily!

I wish I could say at my age that I've gotten better at controlling my anger. I used to be very laid back but these days it seems like I have a much shorter fuse but part of that is due to medical reasons but it's because of a medication and my testosterone levels being too high but they're starting to come back down and my anger is getting easier to control now also which is nice. I'll feel much better when I get back to my old self.

Normally I used to be very good at bottling my anger and then channeling that anger into niceness. The more of a jerk someone would be to me the nicer I would be to them. It either pissed them off more or it made them my friends. Either way I was good. Now I just curse and rant a lot. Yeah, that's kind of crappy but it's better to let it out that way than to take it out on poor inanimate object. I refuse to ever ever take out my anger or frustrations in a physical way with anyone. No matter how mad I get or how justified I feel you just aren't allowed to put your hands on someone else and it would take a very extreme case to make me fight someone. I would rather walk away if I can.

I deal with anger differently depending on what made me angry. If I get extremely angry I usually take a nap to cool off. But I usually end up being angry still after. Lol.

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.


Wow, sorry to hear that. You're not to blame for that. It can be very hard on someone to have such a sudden change and not be able to deal with your emotions the way you could even a day before. Trust me, I know this. Hitting your head can be pretty bad. There's no telling what all damage it did and you really aren't to blame if you have the occasional outburst. I think it's a VERY GOOD sign that you are able to recognize that you're not dealing with your anger or frustration as well as you used to and are working really hard to try and control your emotions. Just think your injury could have been so extensive that you could just be a completely different person and not even realize it. It could have been much worse. You could have been paralyzed or majorly handicapped so I wouldn't sweat it too bad. A little anger is a small price for you still being here and still pretty much being yourself. I know it doesn't make it any easier but your loved one's will understand, especially if they know you are working on it. Nothing to be embarrassed about. Take care of that noggin of yours.

I definitely center myself and conclude that being upset over something will not change the situation or what has already taken place/passed. Although I don't get upset much anyway. Growing up on meditation and the benefits of selflessness in philosophy/theory; helped to condition a positive lifestyle. There's also less hassle when you let it go and go back to doing something productive. Like sleeping.

I try to focus on what I want done at the time and hold my anger off until I can let it off on something inanimate later. Yelling while alone usually helps. Doesn't help if I get angry with people present, my speech tends to go right out the door and into the gutter.

I was raised to control my emotions, not allow them to control me. So I don't usually get super angry. When my sister was really little she used to describe it as "red-hot-firecracker-mad." LOL! I usually notice the symptoms before it reaches that level and do something to change topics or get out of the situation before I do get angry. If things actually do reach a boiling point, I will try to find some privacy for a few minutes to calm down. I'll try to use the energy generated by anger or frustration in beneficial ways - ie. cleaning, exercising, etc.
