Anger Management Message Board


Anger Management Board Index


For the past few years i noticed i have become angrier with the ones i love the most. I will never shout or be 'mean' towards any of my friends - im always the quiet one, but when i get home the littleiest thing can trigger me to shout and be angry. I dont know why - im trying to look behide what could cause it, but im really coming up with nothing. I hate myself for it. I will throw horrible, disgusting comments at my mum and put her down - when she goes out the room i will feel very guilty abouit it. I do have issues with myself - but i seem to throw it on to her.

For the past few years i have been secretly - meaning no diagnosis or anyone knowing about it - struggling with what i think is Social Anxiety and OCD. Do you think these have any contributing factors? I just hate the feelings afterwards, i know as soon as i say it i will regret it - sometimes i may get pleasure out of it at the time, but i know i will feel guilty after that.


Thanks for ANY insight at all.

Wow... I can hear my mother say, "Don't keep things bottled up inside; they'll gush out and before you know it, you've got a dam you can't contain!"

Fire has an excellent "eye" in seeing this.

I see people do this all the time. They get angry and offended at other people, but they say nothing or act as if it's "not a big deal."
But when they get around family, they're just a ball of fire! Angry and mean all the time, looking like :mad: but so nice to those who treat them in an ugyly manner :) all smiles all the time. :nono:

I truly believe that people take things out on family because, as Fire said, they know what family will and won't do.
A person knows family loves them and won't do what a stranger would do if they acted out on them.
Some people take advantage of that. Sometimes a wake-up call is needed.:wave:

Laura, did you say that you weren't diagnosed with social anxiety disorder? Did you say you were privately seeing a doctor, or you think you may have the symptoms of the disorder?
If you haven't seen a doctor, see one and start working on constructive ways to address the things that bother you through out the day, so that you don't take out your frustrations on your family and/or spouse.
They have feelings too, and they hurt when you do it. :angel:

Next thing you know, they'll be alienating themselves from you because they don't know what mood you're going to be in from one minute to the next; and you'll start wondering why no one wants to be around you. :dizzy:
