So I haven't been diagnosed with any kind of rage or anger problem or disorder, but for the past 3 years or so I have had SERIOUS problems with just completely snapping for like 5 minutes of total screaming rage. It has caused me to be verbally and sometimes physically abusive for short bursts of time and it TERRIFIES me. It's like someone flipped a switch a few years ago and suddenly I'm horribly angry. Someone suggested to me once that it might be the oral birth control pill I'm on, but I only started this pill 1 year ago, and of course I can't afford to switch pills anyway. Does anyone else have these bursts of total rage followed by horrible guilt? Is there a specific disorder I should ask a therapist about when I start seeing one this year? Feel free to share any thoughts you have on the matter.
