I have found that a physical activity, like walking, can help distract me...

LooLee you are going through much Stress can cause a lot of anger in a person I know I have a short fuse especially when I'm stressed to the max. Last month on another spark team one of our challenges was to come up with ways to reduce / relieve stress during the holidays well I am still using what i came up with Have you thought about taking 5 or 10 minutes ot listen to some relaxing music or try to do some mediation Getting rest a least 6 to 7 hours of sleep a night These are few things that have been helping me.

Oh I love your idea of walking exercise is always a great way ot relieve the stress & anger Years ago bowling did for me the pins were my ex's head when I throw the bowling ball and made contact always made me feel better emoticon

I can certainly sympathize with you. There are days when anger just wells up inside. Cutting out smoking, soda, sugar, caffeine or even salt can make you really edgy for a while. Once you get over the withdrawal, it will probably get some better.

Tension and anger at the cheater are another story altogether. If they cheat BEFORE you marry them, they will probably cheat even more later. Also if he or she cheats WITH you they will probably cheat ON you too. You deserve BETTER than someone who devalues you. You have to decide whether or not he is worth it or not to stay with someone who cheats doesn't make a lot of sense to me but LOTS of people decide the cheater is worth the PAIN - like most things, this is a CHOICE and you can CHOOSE whether to accept or reject being treated like that.

With love and caring from Nancy ... wishing all of you a wonderful, blessed, and precious day.

emoticon Just think you could be the other person. People are going through so much these days. Sometimes just put yourself in the other persons position, they probably would rather choose to be a better person themselves.

Take it one day at a time. If you blow up the nexty 15 minutes, try your tactics. Take DEEP breaths. You will fuel more oxygen to the brain. emoticon Think of something funny. emoticon

By the way, I am preaching to myself too. emoticon emoticon

Hi thee and so sorry you are feeling this way. I don't blame you one bit though. Anger management and a gym membership perhaps and a good friend to talk to?

when I quit sugar it was a good 2-3 weeks before all the withdraw symptoms disappeared. i would say you are still feeling those effects and it is showing itself as anger.
go for that walk, the endorphins will help with that anger. good luck

There are so many situations that are invitations to anger in my life right now. My partner cheating on me is one of the big ones. Then the little things like an asshole parks in my assigned parking spot that I pay for every month. Somebody cutting me off on the highway. You know the drill. When I get angry lately I just obsess over it. I don't know why. I used to get over things easier.

So instead of the usual routine where I feel anger until it somehow turns into depression... I'm going to try a walk and see if that will help nip all of this in the bud.

Any advice?

Am I still feeling the effects of quitting sugar even though this is about the 7th or 8th day off of it?


Thank you, in advance.
