I'm not sure if this fits here but at the same time this doesn't really feel light hearted.

I think it's a bit of a movie / anime cliché where a character gets a sudden power up from the anger they're feeling. Though that can happen in real life, I've always believed that it would only happen in specific circumstances, usually life and death or something involving actual physical danger.

Then that same thing happened to me a few days back where I was writing an article on my computer. I decided to take a 5 minute break, opened social media and saw something that infuriated me. Took a deep breath, punched my door to release some tension, and when I got back to typing I felt like I wrote 2 whole paragraphs in less than a minute.

That was an exaggeration but at that moment I seriously felt like I was unstoppable. It was probably a mix of my anger and the adrenaline I felt from punching the door but I got such a massive performance boost.

Has anyone ever experienced something like this? Focused anger or whatever it's called.

I think mental health problems can cause many different symptoms.

I have some young relatives with ADHD, and one has a three times trashed his grandma's house, phone, computers.

I know someone with bipolar type 2 who trashed his living room and then self harmed on his bed.

I also know someone with schizophrenia who has damaged a bus shelter which would i imagine take a lot of strength and negative energy.

Some men with depression can feel anger too.

I am not shocked at your post at all but it is a big sign you need some help, perhaps you would be a given a little medication to help you.

Can you walk outside rather than damage your property?
