Please somebody help me, I am so frightened about whats happening to me.
I am 32 years old and for my whole life I have been the most relaxed, calm and peaceful person. I cannot stress enough how laid-back I am (used to be).
The last 2 weeks I have suddenly become seriously aggressive, argumentative, combatative, angry. I am too afraid to even leave the house now for fear of starting a fight with somebody.
Last week I totally blew up at my mother and sister and younger brother, I didn't get physical ( I would never do that), but I was so viscious in my verbal assaults that they are now scared of me and want nothing more to do with me.
Sitting here now I feel totally normal, but anything could set me off. I tried to go for a walk a couple of days ago to calm myself down, and got into two seperate verbal altercations with complete strangers. I am basically looking for arguements everywhere.
It is so bad that frequently over the past 2 weeks I will create an imaginary arguement or fight in my head. I even dream of fighting and arguing. I just seem to want to start fights all the time.
I have no idea where this has come from, and what is going on.
I must stress once again that for my whole life I have been super-peaceful and chilled. In fact most of my friends and family used to comment that I was TOO laid-back...even timid and slightly shy. I was a complete pacifists and would avoid even a mild arguement at all costs. And this has came on so suddenly, out of nowhere.
Please help me, I tried going through the website, but there are so many things assosciated with aggression, I don't know where to start. I'm afraid to leave my house and I have to go to work on tuesday, I don't know what to do.
