I have a personality disorder.When I get angry it can happen in seconds and I'm not aware of it unless someone tells me.It can scare people makes relationships and work hard.

Does anyone else suffer this as well.

I can switch moods quickly over a course of minutes.
It kinda depends on the trigger

Hi Wendy,

I was diagnosed with BPD 6yrs ago. the smallest thing can cause be to fly into an exagerated rage.

My partner kissed me at the week end and he hadnt had a shave for a few days, he caught the edge on my lip with it, it really hurt but that didnt warant me turning into a dragon!!!!!

This morning at work I had great trouble keeping a lid on my temper. My manager has been giving me a really hard tiem for the last two weeks and she is so condescending and patronising!!!!!!!

Really doesnt help me any. I dont think its be long before I either jack the job in or get fired because of my conduct.

It really Sucks!!

Oh my goodness I'm totally with you here!!

The smallest things make me fly into rages..

The other day we were walking through the shops and my mum was walking too slow for me and I completely EXPLODED at her. Even thinking of it now is making me really angry!

That's only one example!

I think I can definitely empathise here. There are very often situations where normally I would do a "Vesuvius", i.e. Blow my top but where what I consider "innocents" are present, I manage to reign myself in a bit.

I suppose reflecting on these occasions this must be a good thing.
I guess I do still have a little bit of self control left. :)

It can often seem that things happen quickly, when in fact they have causation speading over days, weeks, and months. I can lose it, usually after a last straw.

I hadn't exploded in two years, but, I lost it at the weekend, destroyed my expensive gaming keyboard and kicked a door in. Leaving me feeling guity, depressed and useless. I know I'm supposed to 'hold on' to the fact that I've 'behaved' myself for two years, and made progress, which hasn't been lost... But, it doesn't stop me beating myself up, and feeling that I'm back to square one.

Self control is a very thin and slippery thread to hold onto.
