I've heard the anger somebody Bipolar can get is similar to that with BPD, so -She said that she was feeling angry and I was the only one there to direct her anger against.
It's hard walking around with this "background" anger in you all the time, for no apparent reason. It's just there. As everybody knows, being angry makes us look for a way to vent it, so not having a target is maddening.
The longer you go without unleashing on somebody or thing that doesn't deserve it, the worse it gets. sometimes you end up creating a situation to justify the anger coming out into the open, sometimes it just shows up.
I've gotten better at mine, I think because I've put work into being more aware of that tendency, and to have a better understanding of how and why I am angry.
I think it could help if their was a discussion about her anger, that might help her understand and control it better.
