Re: sometimes i really get angry
Hi bren..complicated question, not an easy one to answer.
I can relate to you, I have lots of health issues...depression as well.
You have very complex health issues, and it's difficult to get things working together without causing emotional issues in the process.
I dealt with my "issues" through therapy, and it helped me with the tools to realise my thought processes and patterns and how they relate to my behaviour.
Now...do I still get angry??? YES!! To the point where lashing out seems so satisfying. BUT...that's usually because things have gotten so overwhelming and I don't have the ability to deal with everything without anxiety and depression taking over.
There are lots of forums on this site that you should read and see ifyou connect.
I want to add that some medications can exacerbate our emotions, causing agitation, muddled thinking, and a list of other stuff that can cause a snowball effect in trying to deal with stuff.
Do you have good family support? Good friends support?
Do you have access to counselling in order to help you cope?
Do you have good doctors?
Are you working? Do you have a good schedule or a chaotic one?
ARe you proactive in your care.....meaning understanding what's going on, what meds you're taking and the possible side effects?
Taking one day at a time, having lots of options available, learning coping methods, having good supports/connections....the list is long.
Like I said....complicated.
It's all a matter of perspective!
