Hi doctor,

I am not able to control my feelings and getting so much of anger. My heartbeat is getting increased. I do not know what I a doing at that time. I am just scolding my friends, family, etc. But, after some time, I feel regret on thinking about that and will get into depression. Sometimes, there is no proper sleep. I am so much worried about my short temper.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • The first step is to prevent yourself from acting out during anger episodes. While getting angry, either do reverse counting from 20 to 0 or deep breathing. After calming down give logical suggestions to yourself against losing temper in that particular situation.
  • Log down the events resulting in stress and weekly review them. Then, think some alternative response from your side to resolve it.
  • Practice relaxation exercises like yoga (pranayama). Follow steps of sleep hygiene such as avoiding caffeinated drinks.
  • Remember that every problem has a solution. You just need to try solving it.

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

  • You are having only temper problems, and it does not paramount to bipolar disorder.
  • Medications are there, but the first step is always non-pharmacological methods. Also, for anger management, non-pharmacological methods are a must.
  • Express yourself assertively, but without confrontation to your dear ones and they will surely understand and help you getting out of this.
