Bipolar wondering about channelling "it" (anger, that is)....

OK, call me a fool.

My therapist mentioned today, that Anger + Supression = Depression !!!

She thought I was kidding when I said I didn't realize that !!!

She suggested "getting it out". Shout. Write. Curse out loud (in an appropriate setting and NOT setting-off a freeway Civil War)....

I noticed THIS Board, on the way to the Bipolar Area (so to speak).

Are there any supremely helpful hints as to how to best "channel" it OUT ?

I don't expect to cure cancer, or talk Iran out of insane threats ~ I'm just wondering ...

For NOW, I kind-of thought that PARTIAL venting (at that OTHER Healthboards area) was having a positive and cathartic "release" potential.

I remember, in marriage counselling 2 divorces and 22 years ago - being encouraged to beat each other with pillow baseball bats !!! I assumed that to be training for the REAL bats, at home !!! (Just kidding ~ I think)

In the immortal words of a fake TV / radio psychologist ... I'm listenning ....

Re: Bipolar wondering about channelling "it" (anger, that is)....

You say,

I agree with her on this.
The more you keep it inside you, the more depressed you will be.
I do the same thing.
I keep my emotions inside me.
Say someone is doing something you dont like and you want to tell the person this.
You dont tell the person and just keep it inside you.
That just makes you feel worse.

The best thing for depression is to emerce yourself.
Do stuff to get your mind off the topic thats bothering you.
Walk it off.
I got this massage chair thats really good.
Its got a massage for the feet and back.
This gets alot of tension out of me.
The main thing is, you got to keep your mind center.
Dont let your mind drift into anger attacks.
Thats what I was doing.
So when i get mad.
I'll say in my mind, keep your mind center.
Dont let it drift.
You got to say words inside you, that will just make you feel better.
