    Hi Jmc

    I do get very angry but mostly it is directed at myself for being this way. I'm not usually an angry person but when my anxiety is so high, I get very irritable and even something simple like someone sniffing a lot can make me feel like I'm gonna blow a fuse.

    Hi there, yes i find anger a real issue sometimes, it makes you feel like your head will explode, do you get other anxiety symptoms ?

    I hope it passes soon, its just another symptom to deal with. As you say you are a long term sufferer, are you on any meds for your anxiety xxxxxxx

    Sometimes symptoms seem to be endless with anxiety smile What I find helps with anger is watching old tv shows I used to like.. For some reason Blossom works best!! A bath also helps, it seems to dissolve bad feelings for me. What does everyone else do for anger? smile

    Thanks everyone, no Claire, no meds. Just to complicate matters further I'm very phobic of all meds. I am in therapy. Yeah No one, I do the old TV show thing too! That's the only way I can sleep at night! For me its Frasier, friends and will and grace. Talking of therapy, does anyone have experience of the priory? I ask because I see on their website they offer a free session with a clinician. I have been trying for a while to get funding from the NHS to attend - with no luck unsurprisingly. They look like a great place, I think they would be a great help

    I actually don't live in the UK Jmc so I'm afraid that I don't. I'm trying to find some CBT at the moment but I also do Integrated Energy Therapy (IET), I like trying alternatives. I, too, have problems taking medication. I had to go on folic acid tablets and was even scared of that!! I think I will have to get some meds for anxiety soon though. I was on Lexapro before and it worked really well but it was very hard coming off of it so my doctor suggested trying Sertraline when I'm ready.

    Yes anger and tension. You want to rip peoples heads off for slight things. It's normal when anxious
