Was doing pretty well lately, but today is one of those days, I hate everyone and everything. I am about to burst, feel this anger, range, frustration build up inside me , I would literally like to choke someone or at least brake something. Therapy is not until next Sunday and I hope that by writing here I will prevent myself from doing something impulsive and stupid .Hope all u guys are doing good ,Mary, It is, Dem and Joy...

sorry your day is going bad, mine not great either. instead of anger building i go numb, nothing matters, end up taking it out on myself . i don't know if this would help or Evan if it is good advice, what about buying a punching bag so when you feel the anger build you can release in a controlled way. hope thing get better for you . stay strong.

thnx 4 ur response..it's actually an excellent piece of advice, I started taking BJJ classes(brazilin jujitsu) a couple months ago .it's great, it allows me to express my anger in a healthier way. There's actually a punching bag there, but I don't really know how 2 use it .I'm planning to add a muay thai class in September or October and once ill learn to punch, I wanna buy a punching bag and practice at home .

anwayz..hope ur day gets better...

my day today has been ok, but then, i've been busy all day... it_is, i respond to anger the same way you do...everything ends up not really mattering and i take it all out on myself. i had a really bad night last night. i got to thinking about stuff and i was writing and got really upset. i started thinking about doing something stupid, and i scared myself real bad. it was the middle of the night, and the only thing i could think of was to call the crisis hotline that's listed on my therapist's card. i called and talked to a nice lady that got me calmed down. she tried to get me to tell her my address and phone number but i told her no, i couldn't have anybody come to my house, and i couldn't go to the hospital cuz i don't have anyone else to take care of my pets. so she laughed and said "well i guess you're not serious about hurting yourself so are you feeling better?" and i was like it don't matter if i'm serious or not, i'm not giving you my info! anyway...obviously i didn't do anything stupid. and i go see my therapist tomorrow...she's going to love hearing about this......hope you're doing ok storm. in the meantime before you can get a punching bag, use a pillow to beat up if you need to hit something. ttyl

Hi Storm. It's been 7 hours since you posted and I hope you are feeling better now.

I had therapy today. I cried, sobbed, and wailed the whole time I was in Dr.B's office. Then I made the 2 hour drive home and took a nice nap.

Today's high was 110. I hope it's cooler where you live.

Hugs,
Mary

Hey all..
Thnx 4 the warm responses..Decided 2 work from home today..and I think I am a better( well I did have a little 2 drink last night ,so I guess that helpedJ) it is..Since I don't do DBT in therapy, with my therapist approval I joined a DBT support group on yahoo. Not exactly what I was looking for, but I will try it out..Every Saturday they post a lesson with homework and you have 2 send your homework during the following week. If u want I can send u he details, if u don't it's also fine. I am not even sure I am going to stay there. Joy, I hope therapy goes well and ull have a breakthrough..Marry.. I wish I had a car , driving is very therapeutic for me. Although I discovered during therapy that I tried 2 kill myself by getting in to an accident. (did lots of drunk driving)so maybe 4 now it's better an don't have a car.. hope u all have a great day..
I love u all"026.
