Oh Gaz -- this sounds bad for you (and for the person who got hit!). What's your pdoc saying? It strikes me that things are really not going as planned with the treatment this time round. -- How are you feeling about it? How long since coming off Prozac? Could you get some input from your doc on whether that might have something to do with what's going on?

Worried about you hun. -- Please tell us what your doc says.

you certainly are going through some tough times.  i wish i could bring you down here to tx and my wife spoil you.
 
i experience rage as a part of this da*ed illness!  been experiencing it all my life.  although much of it may be attributable to the abuse i suffered as a child, according to my pdoc, most of it is attributable to the depressive episoded that i experience with bp.
 
hope this helps.  ask your pdoc.

Hey Gaz...
    Just yesterday I was at the Therapist and I was telling her that my anger is really getting out of hand.  I can't stand myself like this.  It is just horrible.  She said that it was very "bi-polar" ish....lol   (my words!) but she attributed it to the bi-polar.  For me, I need to get out and get some adult companionship.  I have gotten stuck inside of my home.  My husband (MISTAKE THERE!) is of absolutely help and gives NO support whatsoever.  Basically I am alone in this.  So I need to take care of myself and not count on others.  That is so hard!  I feel for your pain.  I need others now.  But it is just me and God.  So don't feel crazy or alone either.  Because you are not.  Do you work?  I sadly, do not anymore.  That is a big anger issue with me.  One of many...
God's Blessings!

Oh boy, do I understand the whole anger thing. It can be something so small, and in my mind it's a personal attack on me and I just go off. I literally freak out, and no one can even get a word in edgewise. I get vicious, and say the most horrible things, and that's just not me. I become unrecongnizable to even myself. Then when I calm down in an hour, or a day or a week, I go over in my mind what I have said or done to the people I love the most and I am horrified. Why couldent I have just shut up, or calmed down...anything. I lose complete control and it's so sad. All the meds I have been put on cause terrible side effects, so I just try and go it alone. Sometimes it works, and sometimes it doesent. I just wanted you to know, you are not alone.

gaz,

i re-read your posting and saw that you are on prozac. prozac has been found to have many side effects (like suacide) including anger. sorry, my fingers don't seem to want to cooperate this morning!

check with your pdoc about the anger side-effect of the prozac.

best of luck. i'm sending you good thoughts.

Hi Gaz,
 
Lots of good questions you have. I think you need to really talk with your doctor before you hurt someone or yourself. It sounds like you're not on the right combination of medications yet. Talk to him/her and let them make the right decisions for you.
 
Good Luck and keep us posted.

Anger has also been a significant portion of my illness nearing the end of manic episodes. Its something that's very difficult to control but it's also easy to recognize. For me, after I know I'm being a jerk, I write a short, dumb, small word on the palm of my left hand like "be nice" or "shut up". I know, its silly, but it often reminds me that only my perspective is the cause of such rage. Unfortunately, I've also ended up in a few fights, though I don't completely accept the fact that they were solely my fault. Anyway, I think the main thing at this point is to refrain from telling people what's on your mind. Obviously, body language will still let others know your mad, but this isn't as bad as verbally destroying someone for little to no reason. Others will accept a bad mood (atleast temporarily) but probably not relentless verbal assaults.

Doubt this will help at the moment but good luck.
