Anger issues with depression..

Does anyone else have explosive anger issues with their depression?  I am easily quick to anger with a violent temper.  I hate myself for it and I hate showing my temper in front of my 2 and 3yo.  I don't want them to learn that it's ok to lose your temper.  I have just started seeing a therapist and she said there are things we can do to work on it.  In the meantime, I'd like to know that I'm not alone with this.

Why the skull and crossbones?  Your therapist may send you to an anger management therapy group.

Occasionally I get very angry and snap on my husband. It happened just a week ago...you're not alone.

Yes I do get angry a lot. I have borderline personality disorder, so I have a difficult time regulating my emotions.

I go through the same thing. I worry that they will think that this is the norm, and it is not.

If you find something that works, let us know. I do, and my son does also. His is made worse by his pddnos (autism spectrum, prone to no impulse control).

I do, you're definitely not alone.  About a month ago I was really down and got really angry over nothing and threw my coffee cup at our brand new t.v.  It broke and I am so upset with myself.  I hope it gets better.  Let me know.

you are not alone in this...I am very high-strung and sometimes raise my voice when my boyfriend says something or asks a question..which he hates when i raise my voice....but my parents also did this when I was growing up and living them til 2010. one would ask a question and other would raise their voice and then they both would start yelling. and I know I got it from my parents...cause seen my parents do this...they still do it.....like during christmas dinner my dad accidently knocked over a plant my mom had by her patio door in their new house they bought that was built before they moved in...my mom got pissed off about it and had that angry sigh and my dad tried to help her clean it up and she is like I will do it myself in a rude tone and such......so I think that is called having a short-temper? I do this too though.......and I feel bad doing this to my daughter...with me being high-strung stuff that my daughter does irritates me and frustrates me and I try so hard to ignore her tantrums......I try to laugh at some of her tantrums cause sometimes there is no reason for her tantrums....I was taking anti-depressants that did help with that though. it made me mellow and not so high-strung....but I don't take them anymore after running out.....and never got back to the doctor...I really dont want to be medded up on pills......I would rather find other ways to help with my depression and temper.

I have better control over my anger than the rest of my father's family. When I do get mad it is usually instantly and I hate that.
