 a Hot Head?  When life does not go your way and things don't turn out as planned! Do you have a Hissy Fit and lose it? Ya know Yelling, Screaming, Swearing that kinda thing? Blood Pressure hitting an all time high! I think when I was younger I must admit I was a Hot Head. These days I have mellowed out some don't get me wrong I can get mad but I try not to get that worked up and upset over things I can't control. What is your temper like these days?

I used to be. It has a lot to do with me being bipolar. However, since I became medicated, it is rare that I get that upset.

I wish I wasn't but sometimes I am with the boys  :(         it's mainly at bedtime- by that time I'm so exhausted- I just want them to go to bed but they always seem to make the biggest mess when brushing their teeth and they are slow about putting their pj's on

 I know what you mean by the time the end of the day hits all I wanna do is go right to dreamland. It can be frustrating when they don't wanna get ready for bed! Ugh......

It takes a LOT to make me sizzle..and if I try and communicate with you (whoever) even when it gets testy..it's usually because I care enough "about" whatever and/or you (whoever you are) to salvage whatever in a conversation, debate, and/or family/friend situation.. When I get to the point where I don't want to try and  salvage what I think is unsalvageable or a waste of time and space I usually remove myself from that situation and/or person (s)...  I have flown with a few choice words in the past..and I don't usually do that..that  would also takes a lot.

Naww although some on here seem to think I am.  I'm really not.  I find it amusing when someone will tell me to "chill" because I don't take much of this seriously.  And just because I don't share the same opinions as everyone else doesn't mean I'm angry.  The reason I bold some words in my conversations is because so many want to read between the lines or make up their own verisions of what I mean and what I mean is what I have in bold.

 I don't think your a Hot Head or Angry. Some of these Momma's can be Monster's..... Not so much here but in other groups at times. Your pretty cool Coey! I think your a good buddy and have given me some good advice at times! Thanks :)

I get like that sometimes. Mostly when I'm pmsing everything gets to me and I snap easily. And sometimes at the end of the day when I have to repeat myself a ton of times and I'm the only one cleaning up and getting things done I lose my temper. Otherwise I'm ok.

I did more than half of my life as a kid and twice as much as a teen and had trouble as a young adult too. It really bothered me that I had such a temper at the time and sometimes I would be yelling and I would be thinking in my head while I was yelling "YVONNE SHUT THE HELL UP you are overreacting and sound like a bitch!" and I still couldnt stop I felt out of control with it.

Finally I got diagnosed with bipolar disorder (manic depression) and once I found the right balance of meds for me to balance out my body chemistry now I can happily say I AM NO LONGER A HOT HEAD AT ALL! I handle situations like that usually very calmly and in control of my own emotions instead of them being in control of me. It makes me sad that I couldnt have been that way my whole life.

Once in a very rare while I will flip my lid and rip someone up one side and down the other and leave them speechless but that is rare now and usually only if someone attacks a loved one especially my kids or husband in some way. Or if I see or hear of others hurting someone like bullying or being prejudice that really really pisses me off.  Then God help us all. lol
