@denisejulie , of course we have anger. We have to put up with so much so there is a feeling that life hasn’t been very fair with us.

Just be aware that you have this volatility, so you don’t offend close family and friends.

@denisejulie, I do!

I can be laughing and joking one minute, then a raging she-devil the next!

Most especially when I’ve had cog fog, or am having sensory overload, as my brain can’t cope!

I’m learning to recognise the early warning signs, jumping from 1 thing to another for no reason etc.

Chin up, you’re an MS Warrior, after all! 😘

Denise – you did not put much information in your profile, so I am hoping my advice might help.

I was always angry from the day I was born; my younger sisters 1st memory of me was in a fight in the playground. I busted my hand in Grade school when I deflected a kick from a Bully. This went on & on & on – between the age of 17 to 23, I was in more than 100 fights; not arguments but fights where others had to go to the hospital for stitches. This ended once I almost killed a guy after he raped a girl I liked – a few months in jail convinced me I needed to control my anger.

For the past 40 years I controlled my reactions. The first thing I do is keep my mouth shut. When my thoughts continue to go to my mouth – I bite my tongue then walk away. I walk away from the room, from everyone involved. I also stay away from the keyboard rather than say something I might later regret.

Don’t get me wrong – this site is the perfect place to vent if needed; but those close to me never hear my anger.

To make a long story short – I still get angry over things (especially my MS restrictions). But I learned to keep my mouth shut then walk away. This keeps those I need in my life – they stick around because they are comfortable being around me.

Something to think about…

@denisejulie , you’re still that same person.

Reincarnating the patient approach would help you adopt a calm attitude to life, which will be useful in managing your MS.
