Hello, I am very sorry that you have this anger issue, I can understand how distressing this can be for you. I would like to ask, for how long have you been quick to anger? When you do "snap," what do you do (e.g. verbal anger, destroy property, violent to others, etc...)? Would you say that you have been under more stress and anxiety since the anger issues have started? Do you have any other symptoms at all? Would you be willing to undergo either therapy or psychotropic medications to help lessen the anger issues?
