I am currently halfway through my second icsi cycle. I am on day 4 of stimms and the stress is really bad. I came of anti depressants a year ago after three years and before that I was an intravenous drug user. I am having trouble controlling my anger and fly off the handle at the silliest things. It all started since I came of the anti depressants and has steadily got worse. I am seeing someone next week for anger management but do not feel this will be enough. I have such baggage from my childhood, ( a Cliche I know) and would like to find a decent Psychotherapist before I end up destroying my relationship. I am at a loss as to how to change my behaviour. I am in a destructive cycle which I know is ruining things but I cant seem to stop it. What do I do?

  • Hi, I just picked up the book: "When Anger Hurts" by Matthew McKay,Ph.D,Peter D. Rogers, Ph.D. and Judith McKay, RN. (Get the 2nd Edition) Give it a try...It might change your life!! But you have to be willing to look deep inside and understand the underlying core problems which are causing the ANGER. This is the hard part, I know...best wishes to be well.
