There is a common thread in my family of snapping
And biting each other heads off.ages 47, 53,54.
And my father 78.

My brother is constantly screaming and saying hurtful
Things and then thinks an hour later it's ok.

He never appollogizes and when I tried to talk to him
about the screaming and the thingshe said he screamed even louder
To deny it.

He has this same problem with his wife and employees.
He never apologizes. It's like split personality from rage
To acting like nothing happened.

He always has to be the loudest person in the
Is this bipolar. ??

My two sisters if you ask them a question they
Are nasty . Always annoyed and never happy.

Is that bipolar?

I have been diagnosed bipolar many years ago
and tried medications, liver detoxes, meditation retreats.
AA which helped tremendously with accepting
Responsibility and coping skills and behavior modification.

Everytime I get back around my siblings
I see them getting worse. Hateful.

I am eldest and labeled as the problem person in family
Even though I have been sober for 15 years and have
done all kinds of healing.

Is it possible my entire family is bipolar? Where does all the hatefulness come from?
It is not just with me its with each other and other
day to day people in their lives.

Is rage and verbal abuse a bipolar thing or is
it something else.

I also found out 3 yrs ago I have chronic Lyme
For most of my adult life. Treatment for that helped
My mental state and rage.

Also keeping my salt intake up helps keep me
Healthier. Lithium orinate upplement
Helped balance me and about 10 days a month 300 mg
of lithium carbonate pharmacutical.
Also bio identical hormones.

Is it possible my siblings all have Lyme.
Or is it the entire family is bipolar.
My father is the worst rager and is now
Very sick but still treating us all like dogs.

Are whole families bipolar . Rage?

Yes, rage can accompany bipolar, like any intense emotion. Bipolar is a mood disorder and as such messes with our moods.

My mum, dad and me are bipolar 2 and my brother is bipolar 1 + schizophrenia.

My family is messed up and full of rage.

Hey thanks living well. I'm sorry for that long post.

Is there any possibility Lyme could be problem in your
Or is this hereditary?
Is there any other symptoms physical?

Is your entire family on medication?

I saw a homeopath physician who treated me
And I was stunned at how this changed my
entire reality. i was smiling and no longer felt
like the energy field was coming at me.

It was amazing and the doctor told me this was an
inherited Myasm and that none of my physical problems will heal and it will always be something else unless I repair this inherited Myasm.

Homeopath medicine sometimes works miracles and other times it
works but not long enough.
It's a process. I found out that there are psychiatric hospitols
With doctors practicing homeopathy.

This has to be done with a doctor with over 20 yrs experience in my opinion.
I had one homeopath physician that was a psychiatrist and changed to homeopathy.

I see with my family this common mizerabler theme.
No one is on medication.
20 yrs of doctors . DEC. 2009 tested positive for lyme, bartonella, ehrichiosis, HHV6, chlamadyal pneumonia .
parasites :strongylides, diaoebia fragialis, hook worm.

Hep C ....fibro, rhumatoidal,depression,

I'm the only person in my family who is on medication. My brother self-medicates which is why his bp2 has blown out to bp1 & schizophrenia.
My mother uses diet to unsuccessful to try to treat her symptoms. She is as mad as a hatter. She is also borderline and in very deep denial of her very serious illnesses. She is lucky that she is high functioning - she has her energy and channels her depression into making other people miserable, so she feels good ???? go figure ??? but it seems to work for her.
My father suffers from fatigue, depression and cognitive issues - but all to a lesser degree than me. I am worse than him on all counts even with medication.
I was severely abused within my family, so the post traumatic stress creates havoc - kicking my bp2 off each time my ptsd is triggered.
No Lyme Disease in my family.
Cheers :)

My father was very angry when I was growing up. He'd snap into this blind rage and smash everything he could get his hand on. He'd punch holes in the walls and scream so loud the neighbors would talk about it for days. He did this over things like burning a pizza or losing his keys. I always hated it. I was never really very angry, prolly because as soon as I hit puberty I was placed on ritlin and Paxil. But now I am 26, the same age my dad was when he started a family, the age I remember him being such a tyrant. And I do the same things he does. Specially off my medication. I'm ashamed of it but I cant stop it. Eventually my dads anger sort of fizzled out, less testosterone I guess, but I fear I have more for many years to come as I'm only reaching my prime. It's unfortunate. Its hard to tell how much is nature vs nurture but I do think a lot of it is hereditary. He used to tell me that before I was born he would pray to God that I wouldn't be born anything like him. But it's not a prayer God answered.

 God, i used to suffer the absolute worst rages. THey were aweful. And frankly i was dangerous. But i havnt had a rage event in over four years. here are some of the coping skills i use.
  Hot weather, i avoid working in hot weather if at all possible.
  I take breaks when i start to get frustrated.
  Stress, or lack of it. I have learned to identify what is important, and what isnt. THats the trick isnt it? Learning that for the most part much of our life is unimportant. Think like my dog for a minute, if he has a full belly, a warm bed, and companionship, thats it. He is completely happy at that point. Now think about all we worry about, and all the things that society tells us we need to worry about. Now try and pare that down to just the absolute estiantels. Thats the real trick.
  Finally people who indulge in rage often feel like it is acceptable, that they are entitled to their rage. My ex was this way, she would destroy things (my stuff) and i would not rage back. But i finally did leave her, and now when she rages i just sit back and smile. The rageaholitic is looking for you to be hurt, by not playing their game, you completely change the rules and throw them off their game. J.C. was absolutly spot on when he said to respond to anger with love. Many times it compeltely difuses the situation, and allows cooler heads to prevail
  Finally i dont let people get their hooks into me. Cause if they do they are calling the shots. I practice calm detatchment. But as a BP person i have to, i cant allow my emotuions to go running willy nilly. Trust me this upsets people, cause they expect you to be all in all the time. But i know if i do it will just lead me down a road where my disorder gets worse and worse.
    But i have to say living a life without rages is a great way to live.

Bucci - I vaguely remember asking you this before but I can't remember the answer. I hope you don't mind me asking again! :) Where/how did you get all those zoonotic diseases? I work for a vet and all of those freak me out!
