Anger At My Daughter And Husband
My name is Misty. I am 21 years old. I found out I have anger issues a few weeks ago. I also have a baby girl who is one year of age and a 4 year old daughter as well. I am married, and I love my husband. But I always get frustrated to the point where I always hit my daughter and make my husband mad for no reason.
I was raped when I was a little girl and I had my oldest daughter at the age of 16 in 2004. I married my husband in 2006 and I love him so much. My anger has made our marriage troubled to the point of almost a divorce. I had a best friend, but lost her cause of my attitude. I need some help before it gets worse.
Response from Dr. DeFoore
Hi Misty. Thanks for asking for help on this site. You are a good person, and that's why you want to do better and manage your anger. You don't want to hurt your daughter, and you don't want to destroy your marriage. That's because you are really good inside. Remember that, and act as if you believe it until you do. That will really help you.
The most important thing is for you to follow everything I recommend here so that you can stop hurting your daughter. She is a helpless child, and she cannot defend herself. Please, for her sake and yours, follow all of these suggestions until you can manage your anger and stop hurting your child.
You probably have Post Traumatic Stress Disorder from being raped as a child. Use these guided imagery techniques to rescue your "child self" who was raped. This will help you a lot.
Read this page and then start your journaling process for healing any past issues you may have.

My best to you, Misty,
