Hi, I am not sure if this question has been posted already - if so please kindly direct me to that thread. I have a serious problem in that i get irritable, angry and short tempered easily with people close to me e.g children and boyfriend
i snap for no reason during a conversation and end up feeling guilty that i am treating them so badly for no apparent reason. I pick arguments and have to be right. I cant understand why i behave this way. I can see myself doing it but do not know how to control my behaviour. I feel i need to understand why i act so irrationally.
I get on with people outside my immediate family no problem. And never display anger or any of this behaviour with strangers. I feel like i am a jekyll and hyde chararcter
I have had a pretty stressful life, and am currently on medication for depresson and anxiety. I have suffered from depression for probably 15 years starting my last year high school. I feel i have this uncontrollable anger but no sure why.
Please can you help me in how to change this behaviour because i dont want to end up a bitter, angry, lonely old woman
