I get so angry all the time! And I don't know how to handle it or stop it or why it is so reoccuring and intense. My best coping stratigie at the moment is hitting things there are a couple holes in the walls and i have hurt myself pretty bad doing that! I need coping stratigies someone give me an idea! Thanks in advance these group forums are really good!

There are many ways we can express or release anger which arent very productive, a few of which we have all mentioned tonight.
What are some productive ways of expressing or coping with anger?

Hey @maggiem! It sounds to me like you have a kind of coping strategy but that it's one that hurts you a bit too. A good place to start might to be think of different ways to cope with the anger that don't hurt you, or someone else. Then once you have got the hang of that, you can also work to understand a bit more about where the anger is coming from, and perhaps to be able to see the anger coming.
I am wondering if anyone has some suggestions for @maggiem that they could try using when they feel like they have a lot of anger and need to deal with it?
