Feelings of Anger and Rage

Posted , 10 users are following.

Recently, I am experiencing extreme irritation and anger over absolutely nothing! Even hearing my boyfriend eat his breakfast can fill me with anger. I know that this is absolutely ridiculous, but I can't seem to stop these feelings. It feels totally biological. Then, seconds later, I can feel peace cascade through me, and I feel absolutely fine. I can go from wanting to break furniture to happily puttering around without a care in the world, with almost no time elapsing between these mood states. It is super difficult to deal with!

I just try to breathe through these times, or I go and work in the garden to be with myself, so that I don't end up saying anything to upset the people that I love the most.

Can anyone else relate?

    You betcha! Hearing my 19 year old cat meow was enough to make me go Postal - the irritability thing seems to get less as time goes on, but it really is a symptom -

    I can most certainly relate... I actually got to a point where I wanted to physically hurt my husband for eating crisps and scraping his feet along the floor bless him.

    I looked at my family ( who I love dearly) and felt that I was just being used; that I was totally invisible to them. I felt that I needed to get away from all of them (absolutely totally irrational ). I am more or less through this stage now but it was scary. I wander how many marriages break up at this stage due to bloody hormones??

    I also exercise, do yoga concentrate on my breathing etc. I am very conscious of my diet and I take supplements. I am hoping to avoid HRT and try and get through as naturally as possible.

    Hi Bev,

    In answer to your last question, yes, yes and yes to that. If feel the same...well, the anger if I could channel that i could launch myself in to space i think. Horrible, i hate it and it comes and goes the same.

    Its all part of it....and can totally relate to the irritation re boyfriend eating noises. I seem to hear my husband swallowing in a very exaggerated fashion at times and you get the arm hair bristling ping of irritation!!

    I am 54 and still getting regular periods and have been peri since 47, as it seems no end in sight, symptoms vary from day to day to the point where i am actually considering going back to GP to talk about HRT.

    Hang in there, we are all going through it. I try to look at the funny side of it when i can, do find that exercise helps and if i feel particularly angry (about nothing) usually, i take myself off somewhere, or read a book, does help.
