Struggling with anger

I’ve never one to be angry all the time. I was for a brief time but taking the right meds helped. For the last five years my physical health has been pretty flubbed up in some ways. In other ways it’s been okay. But I’m not happy. The therapist is helping work through the anger and resentment. I don’t want to be bitter and I’m grateful for much of my life. But yeah, easier said than done. :woman_shrugging:t2:


6mg risperidone eliminated my anger issues


I feel anger towards my ex friends for abandoning me once I became ill

I hope your health improves wishing you happiness


Easier said than done indeed.

I’m quite bitter and struggle with resentments too.

At least you’re doing something about it and talking about it in therapy.


its usually the desire for something that makes us angry. We want something, and cant have it so we war against it… its not always the desire for something tangible like money or a girl (the obvious things people get angry and war over), but sometimes it can be a position or state we deeply desire. For example status or even a more basic and seemingly innocent desire for health or even having a basic quality of life.

Would i blame a person for wanting such basic things? No. But ultimately if one wants to be perfectly happy i think they have to even let go of the desire for health and even the desire to live and abandon all to the great unknown.

Again I’m not bashing or blaming you. Anger is an every day thing felt by everyone… I think the only way we can overcome it is to let go of our self will and to say even “Thank you for the bad in my life”. Not saying its an easy task. Not saying its even just that you should have to say that… perhaps you’ve been greatly wronged by someone in your life… but i truly think thats the solution.

Hope you can find some peace <3


When I was seven my best friend had terminal liver cancer. He got angry before he passed. It was at a point where he felt fed up with medical treatment and all the horror of it.

I feel for you fries I really do! Hang in there and try to dig deep. Soul music and comedy may help


I don’t have the same kind of circumstances you do. But I have been irritable in recent weeks myself.

I imagine sometimes it can be seen here.

Mine could be do to med reductions and other circumstances in my life.

I don’t really have an answer for you. I hope that you are to find some peace through therapy and enjoy the rest of your life as best you can. The last thing you want to do is spend the rest of your life unhappy, angry and resentful.

It’s good your therapist is helping you. Things can build up and become intolerable and then cause you to be angry and resentful. But working through the issues really does help.


When I get anger off meds its never towards society but only towards my family. I find it weird given they love me the most. I hope therapy helps you.


I am doing ok now with anger issues. I live with my parents and they are pretty content.

But when they become angry over something I become angry also.

I really helps to be around people who are not angry for me.

It helps to see success in my life in any way possible for me when I become bitter.


I asked myself a simple question: what would have happened has I not been wronged by such and such? and the answer is worse than what actually happened. So how can I hold onto my anger?


I can’t feel any emotions on meds

But when i was off meds i was increasingly angry over anything for virtually no reason and would cry inconsolable

I have a little resentment about the state of my physical health as I’ve not really done anything to myself to cause it. I’m angry because I’ve been robbed of a normal life and I most likely won’t be around to see my kids reach adulthood. I do accept the way that I am, and I’m doing what I’m told by the doctors. I’ve resigned myself to the fact that I’m always sick. But I’m angry about it. :woman_shrugging:t2:
