Re: Angry all the time
This is a reply I just posted to a similar post. And yes, mental illness certainly can be genetic.
I have been exactly the same and feeling out of control and overly angry at my beautiful family. I know I'm doing it...but I still keep doing it...then I hate myself so much for it.
I tried a shrink, exercise, yoga, St Johns Wort, birth control pill, relaxation exercise, you name it. I finally bit the bullet and have started taking Lovan (Prozac). I am meant to take it 2 weeks before period then stop for 2 weeks. If I find I am moody/psycho all over the month I am supposed to take it daily. I am on day 9 and looking forward to the uncomfortable side-effects to subside. I am really hoping it will take the edge of my anger for my family's sake. Many people say anger is actually a form of depression.
Have you tried writing on a calendar about your moods? You might find the worst moods to be 2 weeks before your period is due? If this is the case you may have extreme PMS (PMDD). If not perhaps depression but either way you need to do something for your self and family.
