Does anyone have this problem???? I have Anxiety disorder and panic attacks, along with depression. I have a hard time controlling my temper does anyone think it has something to do with my anxiety or depression??? I wish I knew how to controll my temper better. Can anyone give me a little info on this.?? <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/frown.gif">
I used to have an awful temper. I would get angry over the smallest things and then it would build until I would explode. I know we are suppose to learn to control it but, for me it was uncontrollable on my own. I now take carbamazapine to help control my mood and I NEVER have those rages like I did before. It's really great because 37 is kinda old to be losing control of one's temper.
My sister has had these rages ever since she was diagnosed with panic/anxiety/depression. When we were yonger (say she was yonger than 18) she was pretty happy and easy-going. Now, she'll be having a nice phone conversation with anyone in the family and then she throws a fit at the littlest thing. Many of my family members believe this is directly related to her panic/anxiety attacks. Just keep trying... please. Good luck. Julie.
You did'nt mention if you are currently recieving care and if so what kind. Are you taking meds now, what are you taking?
Is there any particular thing that makes you angry or upset, or does it just jump out at anything?
Life is difficult most of the time, I am glad you are concerned and want to get to the bottom of this.
Yes I do go to the doctor once a month, I am on Paxil for depression and Panic/Anxiety attacks. Paxil has helped me alot. But, I don't think it helps my temper though. I get mad at stupid stuff. I don't really think I guess before I make a reaction or say something. Even when I try to think my temper just over rulls me and it takes over. I have been like this since I was a little one. I just don't understand it.
