So, TQC, I feel like I'm losing it. More specifically, over the past couple of months I've begun to feel insanely intense rage at inanimate objects. This only occurs when I'm encountering some sort of problem with them (I haven't gone up to, say, a potted plant and proceeded to kick the crap out of it because it was just there. Yet). Last week, I got pissed off at my bowl of pineapple because the top wouldn't open and threw it across the room. Of course, it ended up splattering all over the place and making a huge mess just to spite me. On Saturday, I broke the handle off a coffee mug because I was washing dishes and not everything would fit in the drain the way I wanted it to, so I sort of attacked the drain and ended up breaking the mug's handle. And just a few minutes ago, when my LJ format wouldn't do what I wanted, I pounded really hard on the keys while yelling at the monitor. |
I know that the majority of these are hormonally caused, and I'm planning to get on birth control to hopefully control the hormone crazy, but are there any tips for controlling my emotions? I'm not really a big one on anger, and I never threw temper tantrums as a child, so I don't know how to deal with my rage beyond just walking away and taking a few deep breaths. I try to think through them, like, "okay, I'm feeling this way because of ___, I should respond to it in a more reasonable way, it's not that serious" but it's kind of like telling a child who's on the floor kicking and screaming to think reasonably. So, any advice to help the crazy? I really don't like feeling like this.
Srs and non-srs answers welcome, by the way.
