How can I not be angry all the time?

I'm angry all the time at every body, my husband, kids, family members and myself. I take a antidepression med but, it just doesn't seem to help. My kids are always making messes and even they are old enough to pick up. I feel like I have threaten them in order to get things done ie-pick up your dishes,don't through your clothes on the floor. My husband is the greatest but, he is always ( why isn't the house clean, why aren't the clothes done). They are washed but, not folded and put away. I feel bad all the time I don't sleep and I don't eat right. I never have any energy at all. When I do have time at home by myself all I want to do is sleep. I don't like telling my husband this because it'll just make him feel like he is not doing enough. He works 2 jobs so I feel bad if I say anything. I just want to feel better and have energy. I thought about seeing a shrink but, when would I have the time. So please help.

  • Maybe a different med would help. Talk with your doctor again.

  • I have gotten like that. I'm like that today. I just get frustrated. Sometimes there are underlying issues to our anger, deep ones. I have done a lot of years of searching to realize why I feel the way I feel. Try looking back to a time when you were a child and had the same type of feelings, try to recall what was happening and why. A lot of our unexplained behaviors followed us from childhood and they are so automatic that we don't realize it. In fact it's the last thing I thought it would be, but it was it.

  • Go see your doc. If the med isn't helping, then you shouldn't be taking that one.

  • You know what you are not alone!  I know I seem to get to feel that way as well I felt like you were writing about me.  One thing I am really starting to notice about myself it starts about a week before my period.  And then I am fine after that it seems like.  So take a look at that Don't know what you can do though just something I am starting to notice.

  • Well you should get your thyroid checked if you haven't yet. You are just like me, and your man is just like mine. There isn't anything you can do but breathe. tell your kids to clean or go outside. Turn the tv off so they don't have anything better to do. Listen to music to get your mind off of what is upsetting you, or sing. I talk to God when I feel like I'm about to rip my kids head off. YOU have to find something that works for you...things aren't going to change if you go crazy, and if they wouldn't last long.

  • Taking these meds without therapy is like taking painkillers for a broken leg without getting a cast.
