Cranky, has instant mood changes, negative thoughts, verbal and abusive. What is this ?

Hi My husband is always cranky. I would say about 90% of the time. He is very negative about everything & everybody. His moods can change in an instant, he can be really happy one minute than screaming & cranky at everybody.Then he can also change back quickly to quite happy.He had a very verbal & abusive father so I can see a lot of his father in him, only he doesnt physically hurt us he does verbally.He sleeps well,eats well but he just cant control his anger outbursts. Im just about to my wits end. Does this have any symptoms to anything like depression , bipolaretc. Ive been trying to research it on the internet Thanks AAAAA

Psychiatrist 's  Response
Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.

If his symptoms, like irritability, anger outbursts, negative thinking, etc. are of a recent origin and different from his usual self, then it is likely that they could very well be symptoms of an underlying mood disorder.

On the other hand, if these problems are rather a part of his 'usual nature', then it is likely to be unhealthy personality traits.

Whatever be the cause, if it is causing significant problems in your family, then it would be worthwhile to consult a psychiatrist for a detailed evaluation and further treatment. Depending on the probable cause, treatment can be in the form of medication or psychological therapies. Counselling sessions focussing on anger management techniques can be of great help.

Wish you all the best.
