Hi mancy..Welcome to HW tongue
Sounds like you are going thru a rough patch just now..have you been diagnosed with depression?..
'Anger' is like an outward symptom of what is going on inside of us..sometimes we carry round all this anger inside and don't even realise until it bubbles over - usually to those nearest and dearest..the good news is that you have recognised that something is not right with you just now..and maybe its time to do something positive about it...visiting your doctor, counselling/therapy, talking to us..all good steps to take towards feeling better :-)
Look forward to reading your next post..and no you are not alone with this mancy..

Hi Mancy
Welcome to the board,I am very glad that you found us and I hope you find the advice you are looking for.
Jordan is right,anger is a symptom of depression,and I too suggest you make an appt to see the doctor.
If you do not want to do it for yourself,do it for your family.

I can totally relate to what you are saying. In the last month as I've gone off my high dose of Effexor and started Wellbutrim the anger is suddenly very much there again. I'm snapping at my kids more. I have no patience. At least under the fog of the Effexor I wasn't taking anything out on the kids... But I couldn't keep doing the fog/zombie thing. I really wanted to actually start feeling better so I made the difficult decision to go off the effexor and start a new drug, and a lower dosage. But it's been a huge adjustment period for everyone. I have made an appointment to see a counsellor on Thursday morning and hope it will be the first step to getting the anger and frustrations under control. There's ten years worth brewing under the surface so there' s alot to deal with. But I know I have to find a way. For the sake of my kids and my family, I have to find a way to get it under control. And so do you. But know that you are not alone in your struggles, even though at times you feel like it.

mad  I can totally relate with the way you are feeling.  My agitation is pretty severe.  There are times when I won't leave the house because I am afraid of being around people with my agitation.  I have been prescribed antipsychotics for this problem.
Whether they helped or not I can't remember.  I know alot of my problems with it right now is all the crap that i am going through though.

I totally am in the same boat.  My symptoms were actually worsened by anti-depressants and my pdoc put me on anti-psychotics for several months.  I think they helped, because things seem a little better than they have been in the past.

I do realize that there were things in my life I was not dealing with and what was in my subconscious was coming out in full-blown rage.

Mancy, I hope you will be able to figure out what is making you so upset soon.  It can also be symptoms of depression.

Best Wishes!  :-)
