Default burst of anger

I'm not talking the "omg I'm so mad, why I, he so stupid for not taking trash out" bullshit.

No the type of anger where you want to bash someone's face in just for looking at you funny. That type. The one where you want to scream and punch a goddamn wall, and drive fast and maybe even blow shit up with a tank or a giant fucking plane.

Can anyone relate, or is this mix of depression, loneliness and anxiety finally getting to me? Fuck...

Highly likely its a low level of seritonen in the brain and perhaps you mix in some anxiety and you have one on edge mother f..ker whos brain is taking all things personal and out of proportion in the grand total balance of life .


I can notice it now that im off medication felt like punching this dudes head in today who did actually do something to provoke me, but my thoughts are uncontrollable the rage is unjustifiable my whole body can go into a panic frenzy ready to smash fortunately ive seen life being on medication and realise that on medication these events would mean very little ,water under the bridge, not grab a knife and take out the trash material.

I mowed the lawn for over an hour to release the energy and focused on getting back into lifting weights.Your not going mad either redirect that firey low seritonen brain or get on a decent anti depressant.or try anger management although it didnt help me much.

of course I can relate. Though I know exactly why I feel this way half the time, it gets really bad. I fantasize about killing people, people I have in mind. But it's not just rage, it's also pain, and humiliation that are present. To hurt those that have hurt me.

I rarely get that angry. I must have a low level of testosterone or something. I wish I got that angry, though. Sometimes it's healthy.

I have this exact same issue. I drive at 90MPH+ on the free way, I put my self in risky positions, and I go out the bars with the intention of getting into a fight. Its something I don't think I can overcome.
I don't know the logic behind it (maybe much higher then normal testosterone, maybe the more primal side of our brain).

I currently work myself out so hard that I have no more rage, run, box, lift. I listen to rock (Slipknot mostly) to keep the music at the same pace as I am. It seems like guys like us just need to get it out. The best way I have found so far was just working out.

@PheonixBomb: I'd call it simply "frustration".

Very true. Since I was a child I've had rage issues. I started working out (lots and lots of running) and eventually I got a lot better - both with the rage and competing. It feels good to be mellow and know you are better than some people at something.
I got sick last year, though, and something went wrong with my respiratory system. I can't do anything with my body without almost fainting from exhaustion and because of this I am slowly building up a mad rage inside. When using public transportation I fantasise about killing people going by me, I've changed music from soft rock to heavy metal and I'm thinking about getting a gun so I can shoot anyone trying to rob me on my way home from work (we have lots of crimes where I live). I can't even view people equaly - some just need to be killed for the sake of killing.

I miss running mile after mile...

I had a burst of sheer anger last week. This is a bit of a post because I want you to get the background but I think it does tie in well with what you speak of.

I was invited out by friends to an after party for a university society formal dinner. So I was all suited up with a friend at home waiting to get the text to head to the nice bar in the town. It was going to be a great night.

Ended up being there an hour and a half later then when they said they would be ready. Which was fine, it was their formal dinner so let them do what they like and we would meet up with them whenever. Then we got there after the said "go" and just after that they said another 45 mins so we went home as my friend was feeling ill and I had gotten fed up.

Got back and I swear, I have never flicked my mood as much like a light switch as I did that night. I had too much alcohol on me at the time but I got so desperately lonely.

Listening to sad music and singing and crying to myself. There was a lady friend (, the usual stuff :p ) going to be at the after party which I had convinced myself that i was going to make efforts to court over the next few weeks and THAT night was gonna be the start! Oh yes.

That night and how it went pear shaped just plunged me into the loneliness that I was trying to get out of for so long. I was out of it for the most part. Then my laptop wouldnt do something i wanted, I know I was too drunk to do it properly so my fault and I snapped.

Every emotion that I felt that night turned into a thread of anger. Even the happy feelings I had for going out turned into "Why do you get your hopes up?". I picked up the laptop and its safe to say its destroyed. My God I went bizarrely angry.

The scary, or maybe a better word is the real thing is that I do feel the feelings that made me snap a lot. I don't just need drink to think them but the drink just lets down all the safe guards.

My room mates heard banging in my room and they were worried. I was ready to punch and kick every person that had f**ked me over in the past if I had saw them that night. I even look back on it and say to myself, "if I had gotten the notion to plunge a broken bottle into myself I would have". Thank God I didnt and there is part of me that knows if I did get the notion I would have pulled away from it but at the same time I think I could have easilly just done it to try and divert from what I was feeling that moment in time.

That sheer anger has never happened before but I was amazed with how every emotion, whether its positive or negative, gets amplified and turned against you if it needs to be. It all adds up and with enough alcohol to let your guard down you are at the mercy of your feelings, not your better judgement.

I have been wanting to share that story and this thread seems like the right place. Pure anger can tie in so much with depression for me.


Im still finding little pieces of the computer around the floor of my room.

If I did, I hope I didnt stray too off topic for you PheonixBomb.
