It's an feeling that takes over my body and my thoughts, everything annoys me when I'm getting angry or I'm angry about something and I struggle holding it in. It feels like my whole body and my mind is just full of negative thoughts and the only way to calm down is to hit something

Hm. I haven't gotten angry for quite a while now. Before though, it felt like something strange inside me want to seize control of whatever was around so I could feel superior. It was a very strange feeling. Since I don't get angry a lot, I feel like it just becomes worse when it does happen.

I'd also like to hear others' opinion on how big the perceived difference is between anger and hatred.

Tense feeling in my chest, I clench my jaw and all the muscles in my face. I become snappy and am irritated by little things. I find it really difficult to be flexible with my expectations of how things should be carried out. I find it hard to focus on anything other than what is making me angry.

Anger can feel like a lot of things. For me, sometimes it can be feeling "wound up" almost like a physical sensation in the back of my head, my blood rushes and simple things like communicating somehow feel very difficult! Other times it can be more of a slow thing where i don't feel great about something but don't really realise i'm angry about it until i think about it a bit more...anger seems to come in many shapes and forms!
