Anger Management Message Board

Anger Management Board Index

My husband has an anger problem that is so very obvious to myself, his family, and his co-workers. It seems to be getting worse over time. I have learned to deal with this by protecting myself emotionally and just leaving him alone when he turns on me. He isn't physically abusive, but can be so quick to anger and verbal abuse is very painful. He has recently lost his position at work and is in danger of losing his job because of an argument with his boss. We have a mortgage on our home, he has medical bills from two heart attacks he had last year, and if he loses this job, we may lose our house. His pride is stronger than his sense of responsibility and he will not admit that he has a problem. I have no idea what to do. I love him unconditionally, but this recent episode concerning his job is really getting the best of me. It is making me physically ill, nervous stomach, nightmares, and depression. He will not even consider professional help, so I am at my wit's end as to what to do. Can anyone offer any suggestions on how to handle someone who behaves this way? I would appreciate any and all advice.
Thank you!
Thanks for your quick response. I know he won't post here because it would be admitting he has a problem. His heart attacks were caused by blocked arteries and, yes, his anger and heart problems are without a doubt related in my mind. He's also diabetic and on so many meds, so I can't blame him totally. I just can't help him or recommend help if he absolutly refuses it. If he knew I was posting this he would probably be angry with me. I am just getting really stressed out and actually slept on the sofa last night because I don't sleep well there and I thought it would stop the nightmares I've been having since this whole thing started. It didn't work. I've decided to tell him that I'm going to seek counseling for myself because I can't live with all this drama, hate, and anger around me and because I love him and will not leave him, I need to learn how to help myself. (If someone told me this, I think it would open my eyes a bit, but with him, there is just no telling) Anyway, thanks for responding. At least I don't feel so alone.
