Hi Everyone,  Over the past few weeks my husband has displayed fits of rage.  It has happened on 2 separate occasions, and it seems to come on a couple days after he had problems with high ammonia levels. He doesn't display signs of high ammonia levels.  He just is out of control with anger.  Is this part of the disease?  I have read that it is a symptom in the final stages, but he doesn't display many of the other symptoms in the final stages.
 
Thanks to you all for being here.

Hi, Butterfly!  I've only heard of that in association with high ammonia levels.  I recall PG talking about it regarding her hubby, as well as other posters here mentioning it.

Hugs,

Connie

Butterfly, The rage he is experiencing is probably caused by a number of things.

1. He maybe angry at himself for putting you and your kids through this.
2. Frustration at not being able to do the things that he wants to do.
3. It could be that he is afraid of dying and can only express it with anger.
4. He's tired of being sick.

It has nothing what so ever to do with you and the kids, Butterfly. It's him and his feelings trying to deal with his predicament. My husband got abusive. It was extremely hard at times not to take it personal. A few times I let it get to me and I gave it right back.....in spades. I always regretted that I lost my temper and said things that I didn't want to say. But we all are only human.

Connie & Pink Grandma, Thank you so much for your replies. I have been trying to not let it get to me. It has been really hard. He takes it out mainly on the kids which makes it even harder. They don't understand. Luckly, Butterflyfour was a family member that he loved tonight so he didn't express anger towards her. The rest of us weren't so lucky. My daughter had to leave home tonight with her 2 year old son because things were getting so out of control. She is at my son's now. They were both afraid for me to stay here, because of the way he was acting. I couldn't leave him because I was afraid it would only make things worse or that he would hurt himself. He has left and gone to his brothers to stay the night. I really don't know how to deal with these episodes. He gets so enraged that it scares us all.

Thanks for listening.

Butterfly, you may want to call his transplant coordinator and see if she thinks that the doctors should give him something to help him. I know that there has to be something that they can give him. But I don't think that I would tell her/him everything. Maybe say something like he is experiencing anxiety and needs something to calm him down. Just in case they start thinking that he is not in the right frame of mind to be on the transplant list. I wouldn't want to open up that can of worms.

I didn't have kids at home to worry about so it was easier on me in that respect. I was never concerned about my safety. My husband was too sick and I was too tough. I grew up with 8 older brothers and could hold my own. Still can. But if your safety or your kids safety is at risk than you maybe forced to make a tough decision.

A whole lot of thoughts and prayers for you and your family.............
