Anger with Physical Symptoms
by Lois Jean Thomas
I am struggling with feelings of rage and anger and helplessness. I seem to lose my temper with my children and my spouse when these feelings rise to the surface. I feel hot and threatened when this happens--- and unable to cope with the stress of daily life.
This started occuring in great frequency about 6 months ago. I have tried breathing through the emotions... but as a parent I am not given the time to do this before another demand is made on my time doing the necessary duties of parenting.
I feel as if I am losing myself when this anger comes up... forcing its way through me.
Lately the anger comes with a feelings of lightheadedness and a headache and a backache and my ears have an acute rushing sound so much so I can not hear until it is over.
I am at a loss as to what to do. I tried eating a raw foods diet with only marginal results. I have tried meditation and breath and I am still experiencing this anger.
Is there others who are experiencing this and what are their ways of coping?
