Why am I so angry? 😡

Aug 06, 2016 7:11 PM

WTH is going on? I feel so angry for no apparent reason. I'm never like this. Don't know what to do

Not diagnosing here, but is it possible that you are depressed? That often manifests as anger. My daughter often gets angry when her depression deepens. Like you, she says it doesn't feel like it has any rhyme or reason. I'm sure there's others on here with more wisdom to share. Do take care of yourself & if necessary, seek help.

You're probably right I'm sure... 😕

Hi sweetie 🌷just a thought...

How are ur hormones? I was all over the place... spesh before my period..🐪.but genuinely up n down thru the month.🐫 I was so angry all the time. I couldnt understand it!

🐴I was early 30s & my friend sugguested i try a chinese root called DONG QUAI from the health food shop!

It regulates ur hormones🌾 and keeps u on an even keel thruout the month😉. It has been used as a chinese supplement ...to 🤔regulate hormones for thousands of years! 😉

When i run out... i know it😲... cos the anger and unpredictable me returns!😜

🌾 I buy mine from amazon now! I am 44 now so been using the dong quai for over 10yrs now! 🌾

I swear by it 😚...oh and my hubby is much happier now my whores aren't moaning! 😜

Vizallygirl, could you be feeling hormonal? Are you due for your period? Sometimes when I get around that time my emotions are all over the place and I am just angry for no reason. I am also in menopause so I'm hormonal a lot.. LOL!! I never know if I'm going to get a cycle or not: Also, depression tends to manifest itself in anger as well. When my depression is bad, I tend to be a total bitch and that's not my way. I'm very passive and I'm always wanting to help everyone else and I feel badly when out of the blue I snap at someone and then they are stunned at my attitude. I hate it. Take some deep breaths, listen to some quiet music that soothes you and as you listen tell your body to relax from the head down. As you breathe and exhale, tell your body that the shoulders are relaxing and the pain and tightness are moving down; then the abdominal muscles and then your legs and when you get to your feet tell your body that everything you've pushed down with each exhale is now being pushed out of the bottom of your feet and out of your body: then take a little bit to just be still and continue to breathe deeply and slowly. You'll relax and feel better. We're all here for you sweetie. It's going to be ok. {{{Hugs}}}💕🙏🏻🌻😊

Yes, my depression sometimes causes anger outbursts.

I know that when my pain increases it causes everything to go haywire. I blow up at silly little things, get depressed and very angry. I just try to not beat up on myself and have found that any exercise helps. I know when you hurt the last thing any of us wants to do is workout but it does seem to help me.

Me too. Very difficult to manage. I wouldn't expect anyone to be the reverse, i.e. Good mood when in pain. 😞

I hate the exercise, BUT it is one of the only things that helps me. I wish I was upbeat and positive like so many of you... fibro just sucks and has stolen my joy.

Some meds cause sensitive people to have anger and irrational outbursts.

Also, pain is distracting. That causes anger. I have to work hard mentally, to think, remember and to get even one thing done.

So when life makes sounds, errands need attention, the ex has a stroke, that endangered my disabled sons living arrangement, I slice my finger, kids need a birthday gift, I need something for pants I'm making, etc. (My day today) and pain stops me in my tracks, Yes, I get angry.

I don't often show it; I say Congratulations to All of us for any sanity we retain, Well Done! 😀

7autoimmunes is right. Some medications can have side effects such as mood swings/depression or anger. I’d check the sude effects of what your taking. Otherwise we all at times have difficulty dealing with being in pain orhouse bound at times. Talking to others may help you relieve your pent up emotions.

I get Paingry often I have no pain Meds anymore for my back, which has made me very Paingry and my Fibromyalgia has kicked up to a whole new level. My new Runo. Just called today and asked if I was sick while I got my blood work bc I am horribly inflamed and they are concerned about it. I’m not sick with anything I know of so she said my other tests should probably give light which means I am not only with Fibromyalgia which I know I just feel it that it’s something else too.😢I’m sorry I’m new here and this wasn’t about me I here to answer your question. I get very Paingry unfortunately. I know I’m depressed bc of not having a life. I think it’s normal to feel depressed but I can’t excersise yet it’s too painful. I think walking is a great stress reliever or as others have said working out, I can’t work out yet but I plan on swimming the summer away to get a good workout without adding too much impact on my bones. Exercising gives you good endorphins make you happy it’s proven that the endorphins from exercising does improve peoples mindsets they’re happier I’ve read articles about that I don’t know if I helped I’m ranting and trying to help I’m sorry I apologize I also just had to use audio text I can’t type anymore I wish you the best as everyone here. 💜
