>To all that Struggle with anger:
I have outbursts have rage that are fo me have been awful. I am manic depressive. I am on Klonipin and Topomax. They are still adjusting the dosage on the topamax. I am certain all of us have experienced the same thing that anger just hits out of the blue uncontrollable for no reason like a thunderstorm. For me it's horrifying. Two weeks ago I started Tai chi. I first started kick boxing before I got sick thinking that I could get my aggression out that way. No such luck. With Tai Chi, I know this sounds corny I am learning inner peace, Iam not a spirutual person. I am channeling my anger. I am learning to change a destructive behavior that has haunted me and scared me for years. One thing I have learned is to turn my anger into compassion. At first it made no sense to me at all. But After a while it sinks in. It's an affirmation I say to myself everyday or right before I get ready to throw or punch something. To some of you this might sound really queer. The kick boxing was really cool and when my illness is under control I am plannning on going for my black belt and still continue my Tai Chi. Everyone needs a release. I highly recommend this This has also helped my illnes has a whole in terms of setting goals for myself. Good luck to those who try! Believe in yourself. Ellen
