Need to vent. My irritability is through the roof. It takes nothing to set me from 0 to 300 on the irritated scale and I feel like im constantly yelling or barking at people. The plus side I realize I am doing this and am trying to remember to pause before I react but its hard to stop un the moment I hate when o get this way. Any body halve any tricks they use to keep from lashing out st everything in the heat of moments. I write in a journal or talk to my Dh but it doesn't help much.

For me its five minutes of quiet (I retreat so I dont explode).. I either Come on here and just vent my little heart out for that five minutes, or I grab my car keys turn up the radio, and drive.. Sometimes escaping what is making you "heated" helps you to calm down. I have also recently started going to the gym again, and I notice im not as on edge now.. I think it is fantastic that you are noticing what you are doing, and you should give yourself props since it takes many people a very long time to see it!!! :)

I have to walk away and take deep breaths.  try to avoid stressful situations and prepare myself if they can't be avoided.  journaling and art help me release my feelings.

All I can suggest is to be in the moment and prioritize the kind of person you want to be. In our home we "practice" patience because that gives us understanding that it isn't an all or nothing proposition. We just do the best we can in that moment, learn from it, and move on.

 deep breaths, walk away, and pick your battles. My dd is 13 this year and had been starting to push it. I took a little course called parenting with love and logic and it was amazing!

I walk away alot.  I also am very good at the silent treatment.  They figure out after a while to just leave me alone and stop irritating me.  I also journal so I can vent on paper.

Thanks. I m going to try that 5 minute reboot . Reacting immediately in the moment is such a hard habit to break but I hate the way I've been acting. I just have to remember to walk away.

Wish I could help but I'm going through the exact problems, last few months all I do is tell and snap at the drop of a hat, I feel so much anger and hatred towards everyone, I've yelled so much my voice is hoarse and I'm so fed up I'm ready to move out and runaway. :( I need to get on meds but hate them all.
