Getting Help for Your Anger Issues

Reading Time: 2 min

Anger is a healthy emotion, and most of us get mad at times. This reaction can occur for various reasons, from getting delayed for a flight to getting into a quarrel with strangers or loved ones. It’s even possible to get angry at ourselves. However, even though anger is a normal emotion, there are times when it can become problematic.

At All Day Medical Care Clinic, with locations in Gaithersburg and Silver Spring, Maryland, our team offers comprehensive medical care for all aspects of your wellness, including behavioral health issues. If you find yourself struggling with anger, we can help.

Recognizing anger issues

Many people think uncontrolled anger manifests as violent or aggressive behaviour. However, this isn’t always the case. Anger issues can look quite different from person to person. While some people struggle with short tempers and violent outbursts, others can find themselves quietly seething most of the time or obsessing about the things that make them angry.

Plus, one of the biggest challenges with uncontrolled anger is that many people don’t realize it’s a problem until it affects their lives. That’s because chronic anger can impact all areas of your life, from your career and relationships to your mental and physical health. In fact, uncontrolled anger can lead to long-term health complications, such as high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, insomnia, and a weakened immune system.

Here are a few signs you have uncontrolled anger:

  • You feel angry a lot
  • You nurse a grudge or think about revenge
  • You are or think about being violent or aggressive while angry
  • You have conflict or discord in the workplace
  • Your friends or family avoid you because of your behavior
  • Your friends, family, or coworkers have expressed concern about your anger

The good news is that approximately 75% of people who receive anger management therapy see improvement in their behavior.

How anger management works

The goal of anger management isn’t to suppress your feelings, which can lead to even bigger problems. Instead, anger management focuses on helping you learn to manage the intensity of your emotions and the effects they can have on you. It’s even possible to learn better coping mechanisms to handle people or situations that trigger your anger.

There are several therapeutic approaches used in anger management, including steps you can take on your own. However, working with a trained professional can help you through the process better, because your therapy will be tailored to your unique situation.

Undergoing an anger management program can help in several ways, including:

  • Determining what’s behind your anger, such as anxiety or learned behaviors
  • Learning how to recognize warning signs of anger, such as a clenched jaw or headache
  • Identifying what triggers your anger
  • Gaining tips to keep your anger in check
  • Finding healthier outlets for your anger

When you work with a member of our team, we can help you gain control over your anger and frustration. And, you’ll also gain the tools you need to have long-term results moving forward.

Are you ready to reclaim your life and get your anger in check? To learn more, book an appointment online or over the phone with All Day Medical Care Clinic today.
