Short tempered, mood swings, getting stressed easily. Cause of worry?

My Boyfriend and I have been together 6 years now. Ever since ive known him he has had a short temper, mood swings, easily stressed out by things that do not need to be stressed over. For example if he is cooking an egg and he pops the yellow he gets soooooo mad!? I just wonder can this be related to someting else? Is it normal?

Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.

Since you say that these problems such as short-temper, mood swings and difficulty in handling stress have been long-standing, it is likely that these may be part of his personality. Some persons can have certain unhealthy personality traits which result in emotional dysregulation.

Your boyfriend also seems to have poor coping skills, which may be the reason for him to get stressed out so easily. There are psychological therapies which can help him gain bette emotional regulation and teach him better coping skils / stress-management abilities. So, you can suggest him to seek professional help.

Wish you all the best.
