Hello.......
Thanks for your query. Difficulty in control of anger is a common issue that significantly hampers our life. I would suggest that you meet a clinical psychologist to learn anger management exercises like counting of numbers, breathing techniques etc. Yoga, meditation and breathing relaxation exercises might also benefit you.
If the above measures fail, you would require a psychiatric evaluation to rule out depression and personality issues. Wish you good health.

Hello
Welcome to HCM

You are a cool and calm person but recently you are getting angry on close friends and also hurting them. Later you can easily realize mistake but again you are developing anger against them. From available information I can tell you that such symptoms may occur due to excessive work stress or probably due to some Depressive episode. In mild depression conventional symptoms of depression are not found and individual may present with atypical features. If such symptoms are hampering your personal and professional life then please visit a Psychiatrist for opinion. Cognitive therapy and relaxation methods alone will help in improving your symptoms.

Thanks

Hi,
thanks for using health care magic.
I have gone through your available history. sometimes out of stress, mind may react with anger.
You should consult psychotherapist for anger management techniques.
Meanwhile you can try Yoga, meditation and breathing exercise for anger control.
You can also do reverse counting from 30...29...28 likewise, whenever you are angry and want to control it. it may help in many cases.
thanks

Hello
Welcome to health care magic
I can understand your situation. I appreciate your effort to seek online support.
You are possibly having "impulse control disorder" with associated anxiety and depression. For this consult a psychiatrist for detailed evaluation. Following treatment strategies would be helpful-
1) Antidepressants like SSRIs (escitalopram, sertarline, paroxetine etc) in case of associated depression) and antianxiety agents like clonazepam, lorazepam, alprazolam etc
2) Psychotherapy/ Counselling sessions
3) Relaxation techniques like yoga, meditation, deep breathing etc

Hope it helps
Good luck
Regards
