Hi there

I'm finding myself suddenly becoming depressed and sometimes extremly angry over nothing. This has recently come on after witnessing something i'd rather not go into but I was fine before that. I really need to find a way to controll myself as my behaviour is starting to affect those around me. Help ! sad

Hi there,
 
Welcome to healingwell.  I am glad that you have joined us.  Are you seeing a doctor right now?  I would definately talk to your doctor about some counseling and possibly some medication. 
 
Though there might be a reason for your anger.  You said that something happened and you became feeling this way and reacting this way.  It could be situational.  But if I were you, I would discuss the anger issues with your doctor and see if there is anything that they could do to help you.  You had to start somewhere and coming here was a good start.  As there are some pretty wonderful people here. 
 
I hope that you feel better soon.  Keep posting, take care.  Another thing you could do is read some books on the issues that you have going on. 
 
Best wishes to you.
 
Hugs, Karen

That is good Robster, and keep in touch with us to let us know how things are going. We are here to offer support. It is hard when you get angry, I do know that you don't want to feel that way. Though this could be all situational, it is best to contact your doctor. And read books. There are many self help books out there to help with your situation. Educate yourself.

Keep posting.

Hugs, Karen

Hi there,

If what you witnessed was traumatic it could be that the anger is a symptom of post traumatic stress. I have heard of this happening with war veterans for example. It would be good if that's the case that you find a therapist or counselor that you can confide in about what you saw in order to process things. If pts is what this is then it's best to get some help for it sooner than later. That way there is a much greater chance that you can really heal from this and more quickly than if you put off working through things. Having said that, you will know when you are ready to talk to someone and seek that help. So listen to yourself but also do consider getting some help. Like Karen said, your dr. is a good place to start. He might also know of someone to refer you to for some counseling if in fact that is what you need.

take good care of yourself and don't be hard on yourself. The anger and depression aren't who you are. They're symptoms of something you're going through. So be compassionate with yourself.

If you have sudden anger or a distinct change in personality or if it feels like your emotions and brain have changed for no reason and aren't working normally, get tested for tick-borne infections (Lyme disease, Bartonella, Babesia, etc.). These infections can cause subtle emotional changes, and often unusual emotional changes are the first symptom. I'm not saying that all emotional problems are from infections, just that sometimes distinct shifts toward abnormal emotional function can be.

I had terrible anger problems from Bartonella that have gone away with treatment. I would shriek at the tiniest things, lose my temper and throw stuff all of a sudden, even in public, etc. -- probably caused by brain inflammation. Went away with antibiotic treatment.
