Ask Health Experts and Get Answers to Your Health Question ASAP
Dr. Mires here to help answer your question. Are you currently being treated by a psychiatrist/psychologist or have you been diagnosed with any kind of psychiatric condition? How can I help you with your problem?
What causes you to snap at your girlfriend? Is it something she does in particular, or do you find that you have irrational mood swings? Does this only happen with your girlfriend or do you find yourself snapping at other people too?
The best option would be for you to seek counseling. Some people can alter their own behavior by themselves, but most of those people do not ask for assistance. Once you have recognized that you need assistance, the best assistance would be in counseling. And cognitive-behavioral therapy, or CBT, would be the therapy that is most likely to help.
The questions asked by the other expert are also pertinent because if there is a specific mental health condition, such as depression, it would also need to be treated, but your counselor can also consider whether such a condition is present.
