My fiance' is a great guy, but sometimes he has these outbursts of anger. He would never hit me, because that is the first thing everyone asks, so don't worry.:) The thing is I was on the phone with his mom the other day during one of these outbursts and she said that his father had a thyroid condition and it caused him to become violent. The stories that my fiance and his sisters tell me about their father are horrible and scary. The most frequently told and most vivid story is of my fiance's mom getting beat up by the father and having her head beat into the radiator in the living room. My fiances biggest fear is to be like his dad.
The big thing is i asked him after the conversation with his mom if he knew why he was angry when he was getting angry. He said sometimes but other times the anger just pops up and he doesnt know what set him off.
I am worried for our family because the outbursts are becoming more frequent since the birth of our daughter. I know he loves her so much and he never yells at her but the yelling at me has increase significantly.
Is this possibly a handed down thyroid disorder from his father?
some of the other things that made me think of thyroids is :
if it gets too hot he will throw up from the heat, He is sensitive to light, he has a low appetite for someone of his size, nightmares (of his father), increased drinking of alcoholic bev., unexplainable frustration, irritability, mood swings.
I am not hoping for a diagnoses, but I am hoping to have some ideas for when I go to my doctor. Any ideas let me know thank you bunches.
