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?

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.

Anger management will help.

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