How To Control Your PTSD Anger

March 29, 2013 Michele Rosenthal

If you live with PTSD, then you definitely have had your share of angry outbursts. How could you not? Your fuse is small, your triggers large and your ability to go with the flow went out the window the day your trauma(s) occurred.

Is there hope for you to proactively manage your anger? You bet!

The Roots of Your Anger

This week on my radio show, I interviewed an anger expert, Janet Pfeiffer, about how to flip the power struggle between PTSD and anger.

Pfeiffer had some great ideas, including the three causes of anger. (You can listen to the entire anger management podcast here.)

Which root cause of anger applies to you and what does it mean? Find out in this week's audio clip.

After 27 yrs of being ordered by parents who forced me to have sex with dad because it says to Honor your parents in the bible, then SOLD to husband; then 30 yrs. in a religious cult/ commune which I escaped with my life at age 57. For 10 yrs. I have found NO counselor, psychiatrist or doctor who will help me. I'm ready to kill myself if the: post polio, congestive heart and pulmonary edema, bleeding ulcer, anemia; PTSD; diabetes; doesn't do it!!!!! I'm 68, NO friends, NO church, No family nearby. Again I'm in solitary confinement in my own home because I can't drive due to drugs I'm on.
