Hello Welcome to icliniq
Based on the information you have provided, there is no evidence of any severe mental health disorder. You have mentioned that your uncle has schizophrenia. Your symptoms do not indicate schizophrenia. You appear to have some emotional problems but it does not mean that you are mentally ill. You are describing problems with anger management, related anxiety and hand tremulousness, mood fluctuations between and procrastinating your tasks which are leading to a stressful situation.
How long have you been having problems ? Have you spoken to a trusted family member or friend who is able to understand and support you? Do not isolate yourself. Share your difficult thoughts so that your family/friend can offer their perspective and guide you. With some self-help interventions and support you can make some positive changes that will help you to feel better
If problems are severe and persistent, you can consult a local psychiatrist for further assessment and support. If mood swings are becoming severe and develop lhypomania/manic symptoms medication may be considered. Counselling/therapy can be helpful.
Hope this helps. Take care

Welcome back to icliniq.
Medication like mood stabilisers will not be considered as first line treatment in this situation to manage mood swings. Non-pharmacological treatment like exercise, music and counselling will be beneficial.
If anxiety is excessive and affecting normal functioning, consult a doctor in your city for support. SSRI medication (like fluoxetine or Sertraline) can be tried. Medication can only be prescribed by a local doctor and a full assessment will be needed to ascertain whether medication will be appropriate. Hope this helps.
