Intermittent Explosive Disorder

Well ladies, as promised, I am updating you on my feelings. Remember when I posted about the fact that I was worrying about my feelings for Lucas and that I get angry easily? Well, there it is. David and I are both psych majors and he remembered this disorder from his studies: Intermittent Explosive Disorder...and it fits me to the letter. "Intermittent explosive disorder involves repeated episodes of impulsive, aggressive, violent behavior or angry verbal outbursts in which you react grossly out of proportion to the situation." - Mayoclinic. No don't worry your pretty heads about this, I haven't hurt anyone or anything (although I've wanted to break my computer a few times to release the anger lol.) I'm still rational enough during my episodes to not hurt anything or anyone (including myself, no matter how much I might want to.) They only last about 15-20 minutes for me. And they make me feel soooooo guilty afterwards!! BUT, I'm happy I know what it is and that I'm not just crazy lol. Feel free to ask any questions. It's not a horrible thing and I'm so not embarrassed otherwise I wouldn't have posted lol. You can check it all out at the website too if you want. :)

    I find this interesting, is it something that can be controlled or "fixed"?

    I can understand that, I would rather try to work it out more close to natural than pop a pill that can have way worse side affects!
