Hi Guys. I think I've got an anxiety. I can get really uptight, feel irritable as hell, constantly overthink something and be really cheesed off with something. Then before l know it my teen or partner will say something and I'll snap and land up having a blazing row with them. I know when I'm going to row as I feel so uptight and tense - then before I have time to pause to think about my actions I'll have had the biggest row ever. I keep telling myself I'll pause for thought before reacting, but before I know it my tongue has already lashed. I feel out of control and feel helpless to help myself. The arguement generally starts with someone cheesing me off, and me having a go at them about it, which then cheeses them off and lands in a row. This can be anything from my teen leaving a wet towel on the floor, to my partner coming home with a face like a wet weekend. The issue is I get so irritated - really really irritated. Most of the time this comes on really quickly and I lash out before I've had time to reason with myself. I know when I've calmed down I could have handled the situation smarter, but I now know I need help. Can anyone relate to this? Jo
