I grew up with in an abusive home. I inherited a temper (to a degree) and have anger issues. I've been really good about our son (11 mos). I walk away whenever I feel my skin start to get hot. But my SO has been down on me lately about it.
He's like "Why do you need to walk off? Why does he irritate you? He's just a baby.. He doesn't know.. What's your issue?" I KNOW it logically.. but I still find myself twitching and irritated atleast once a day where I have to just walk away for a few.
I guess I just want someone to tell me I'm not the only one who has anger issues that has had to keep anger in check since becoming a mother.. and I don't think I'm a terrible person like my SO is making me feel like I am just because I still do get irritated more than other people/him.. I get irritated -- I walk away-- so that should be good enough -- right?
But if not -- like SO suggests it's not -- how on earth do I change?

You really should look into talking with a professional and maybe going to an anger management class. It help so much, let things just go and things and your stress level will go down also. GL Your not alone, walking a way to collect yourself is GOOD MOMMA your taking care of you to.
