Fits of Rage And Alcoholism

by Lauren

I moved away from my family almost two years ago, and have recently began to experience fits of anger and extremely uncomfortable anger. I blow up over the littlest things.

For example, if my dogs pull me in opposite directions as I’m walking them, I want to scream at the top of my lungs. Or if hangers in the coat closet get stuck together I just want to throw them.

I ended up getting so angry the other day that I punched my steering wheel so hard that I busted my knuckles.

My mom and dad have also been having financial problems and have not called me or answered my phone calls for almost a month and a half, which is not like them. I am extremely worried for them as they too have bad alcohol problems.

I find myself so upset about it on a daily basis that I feel as if they do not care about me. My husband doesn't know what to do and has been distancing himself as well I feel from me because I am so hard to deal with.

I am not sure if this is caused by my own problem with alcoholism or if it is something more that may have been suppressed. I really would like to be more happy and easy going and not wound up so tight all the time.

I used to be so happy and now this looming cloud seems to be over my head more often than not.

Thanks for letting me rant.

Hi Lauren

You probably do have some suppressed or unresolved emotional issues, but I assure you that you will not be able to deal with them successfully until and unless you overcome the alcoholism. I could not emphasize this point more.

Read this page on alcohol abuse, and you'll get some good guidance about what to do next.

No therapy, counseling or other type of approach will work for you as long as you're actively engaged in any addictive behavior.

I feel confident you will take the necessary action to get started on your recovery, which will enable you to begin your emotional healing process.

My very best to you,

Dr. DeFoore
