Anger Issues - December 8th 2014, 03:34 PM

I'm 13 and I've had anger issues since I was like 4. I'm a really quiet person. I don't like raising my voice and I'm always calm and quiet. But I lose my temper really easily and quickly. Once that happens, I turn into a monster. I'd start yelling and I still remember this one time when I was mad at someone and they told me that I give the scarriest glares and looks ever when I'm angry. No matter how hard I tried to explain what I'm like when I'm angry, you'd never imagine it. No matter how hard I tried to explain what a calm person I am in general, you'd never imagine it. When I lose my temper in front of *for example* my family, they'd start calling me insane, crazy and maybe even a monster. And that makes me angrier. And I just hate myself so much for that. I have no control on myself at all. My blood pressure is always high because of that. Any idea on how can I control my anger?

Don't get too close, it's dark inside. It's where my demons hide, it's where my demons hide.

I'm in the same boat here. I get name called too "insane" "psychopath" "monster" "bipolar" "mentally ill" "violent" etc. I'm not sure about what advice. I would try breathing techniques and training yourself to calm down. To me that's an everyday struggle. I'm also quiet and calm unless my temper rises. It's caused me a lot of issues. It's good you recognize it. How is your family life? you mentioned that they're some of the people you get angry at, and then they name call you. Is it at all possible to tell them when you're calm some of the things they could do so as to not trigger you even further? I tried speaking to my dad. I told him if he named called me, I'd get uncontrollable. He kinda got the message but still figuring it out. Can't say it's been easy getting through to family though. They misunderstand a lot and that makes things 10 times worse. Another thing you could do is develop a routine of "ifs....then". So you have a plan before things get really heated. I feel like acting things out would have helped for me but I don't really have someone to do that with. If you have a friend, maybe you can confide in them and then reenact the situations and practice coping. That way you'll have a safe space to experiment what the best option is for you.
