How Long

Im on medication, getting Anger management and counselling. How long are people usually on Medication for because I don't want this for the rest of my life. I really miss my ex girlfriend and I know i should not have hit her or grabbed her by the throat but I compare myself to my stepbrother too much

Sam, there is nothing wrong with being on medication. If it keeps your anger under control then it is doing a wonderful job. It is better to be on medication then have the risk of you hitting somebody else. Just try to take each day as it comes.

I understand you want a girlfriend but maybe it is better to get help with your anger first. You will only be at risk of hurting your next girlfriend. I cannot give you a time as it would depend on how you respond to the counselling.

i know. i mean i want my ex back but thats going to be impossible. Even if I get a new girlfriend how could she be better then by ex. If I had kids they would always be a disappointment wouldn't they as it would aways be what might have been

I think you need to give yourself time to get over your ex. Things did not work out with her but that does not mean that in the future you will not meet somebody you are even more happier with.

I was with her for 1 month and I asked her if she wanted to go on holiday with me. My stepbrother has been abroad with his gf, he is going to move in with her when he finishes UNI. What on earth is wrong with wanting to go on holiday with someone you like, all she wanted to do was go in the future and just go to the cinema or something.

Thats when I got angry and grabbed her by the throat and hit her

Sam, we have all been caught up with romance. Please stop comparing yourself to your step brother. You are different people with different experiences. It just sounds like it was too soon for your ex to think of going away with you.

So what should I have done?? How is going to the cinema better then going on holiday to the USA like he is doing with his GF.

And now I can't even do that

I just think for some people they would need to get to know a person for longer then a month before going away with them. Personally, I would not go away with somebody I had only known for a month. I am sorry things did not work out but it does not mean you will not meet somebody in the future.
