Angry Implosive Anger.....

I've never really shown my anger in the past, and it seems like it has just really built up inside of me. The building anger is driving me crazy and I don't know what to do. I don't like showing my anger because it scares me, so I resort to taking it out on myself. I scream at myself, calling myself stupid and embarrassing. Then I usually punch things, and injure myself by either cutting, scratching, hitting, or burning myself. I don't know what to do. I want to control my anger, but I fear that it is just going to build up until I implode!

How should I go about dealing with this?

Hi,
I had a friend who was a cutter and I have to say, it's scary for him and it's scary for the people around you, like your friend's and family. When my friend was a cutter, I would alway's worry about him when I knew he was upset because I knew he was going to hurt himself. You need to see a councler to help you, you cannot go on like this. You realize that something is wrong and You know what, thing's can be allot better for you, you need to take that first step and call for help. You have a long life ahead of you, you don't need this burden on your sholder's,
karen

Re: Implosive Anger.....

I agree with karen. You need to get counseling... anger CAN be very healthy if you learn how to affectively express it.

My bf cuts himself. He did it originally during his marriage when his ex-wife was going through an eating disorder... that was many years ago and I thought he was done with it (he went to counseling way back). He had 2 cutting espisodes earlier this year that I know about. The first time I was very nervous and upset... the second time I was more angry. If he does it again I will try to find help for me on how to handle it.

Best wishes and big hugs!
