Hi

Is anger your only problem?

How often is it an issue?

Have you had any professional help with this already?

How severe is it - have you gotten into trouble with the police?

no i also have a memory problem its hard to remember things in the past and also things to remember for the day and it could be the biggest thing to remeber but i still wont be able to remember and it feels like its getting worse. cause i am forgetting more and at times my speech is not acurate i think one thing and say another so when it comes out it comes out wrong and it makes me feel like an idiot. it happens abou everyday. no help. no police trouble.

Hi

Ok.

There's probably not ant specific treatment for your memory but there are patient groups for those with head injuries who you can contact for support.

Anger is a common problem in all patient groups and is by no means restricted to those with head injuries.

I'll post you some links.

Hi

Anger management will help.

Best to ask your PCP who can provide this locally for you.
