I have a squint in my eye that causes physical and mental discomfort, Anxiety, Depression, Chronic Pain that is undiagnosed causing mental discomfort as well as physical, I am 6 foot 4 roughly if not a bit taller and I am skinny as hell and my relationship with my Mum is not healthy.

I guess this is mainly about my relationship with my Mum. I get REALLY irritable from the Pain that I have and Anxiety. I mean if the smallest little thing goes wrong I practically get raging within a heartbeat and can't control it a lot of the time. I care mostly about my Mum in this case, forget how I feel. She goes through enough and doesn't need to come home to ME. I want to stop being so moody with her all the time :(. It really gets to me, like I can be sitting here feeling this way and I will go downstairs to get something to eat or drink and she will say something and I'll just snap, I want to step outside myself and give myself a royal slap!

Had to vent this, but is there any techniques you know of to staying calm? I am usually quite a placid guy, been described as having a heart of gold and couldn't hurt a fly etc. Which I am more than happy with - I am not the sort to want confrontations so why am I starting them? I know it's mostly down to my chronic pain.

Like she just came in my room to say goodnight, I didn't snap or anything but it has definitely had an affect on life at home. I need out of this ****ing bundle of crap that I constantly have to just deal with on a daily basis!

So irritable it is really hard to keep sitting still.

Hi Paul,

I do walking and meditation. But I also take anti anxiety meds, anti depressants and a mood stabilizer. The mood stabilizer really helps. Maybe you should talk to a doctor about taking one. Do you go to counseling? It would probably really help if you don't. They could help you to cope with your mom and also maybe to even get a place of your own. Do you work at all? How old are you? Just curious. Thought it would give me a better picture of what is going on.

I hope that you feel better soon. Meditation is a good way to relax. You could look it up on the internet and it would probably tell you how to do it. I hope you find something to help you feel better.

Hugs, Karen

sound like you are ready to leave the nest!  You didn't say how old you were so not sure if this is a possibility, however, I think you may want to work towards that goal.
In the mean time, a talk with you doctor about anger and anxiety will be a great idea.
Coping skills for you to deal with this on a daily basis would be MINDFULLNESS.  Wonderful skills here to get through hyped up emotions that come on quick.  go to for a taste of what is out there. 
You may also want to look at therapy or an anger support group to share with other people who feel as you do.
Stay calm and safe.

Talk to a psychiatrist. I might help if you attend anger management classes. You can also try psychotherapy. I did for my anxiety and I learned how to think positive and cope with negative feelings. Risperadol is a good drug to help stabilize mood swings.
