It could be a result of being somewhere on the bipolar spectrum. Insomnia is of course part of the mania package, so are anger outbursts. You do seem to go through phases, so maybe you are bipolar and you did have manic type episode.
The outburst very well could have be a result of inner anger-along with outward frustration. Therapy and the right medication can help resolve this. Therapy will take much longer of course. I found that medication worked to treat the symptoms, but the anger was still there. Therapy helped me get to the source of the thing/things I was angry about for so many years so I was not as likely to get angry about sh*t that I did in the past. I still have not resolved all of my inner anger. It's hard work, like everything else in therapy, but well worth it and the only real way to solve any issue long term.
