    How to deal with the rage


    I've done a dozen gear cycles in 37years... all w/o a hitch until recently. I am having bouts of nearly uncontrollable rage; mostly involving cab drivers, lol.

    I have always been quick to brawl, but this is more insiduous; find myself looking for it more and more. I was in route to a group meditation session(lol) tonight when I found some street parking near my meeting. The driver in the car behind me laid on his horn; I can only assume he had wanted the space, as ridiculous as it sounds, he continued to lay on the horn.

    He had parked abreast of my car, so close that I couldn't exit out the driver's side. I immediately opened the moonroof and climbed out. He about **** himself -- at that point, seeing the utter expression of disbelief -- I simply shoud've walked away... unfortunately, my wife and child were in the backseat and I was seeing stars I was so pissed that this tool would block my car.

    I ran around to his driver's side, seeing that he was closing his windows and locking the doors, all the while flipping me the bird! I was so adrenal I thought my head was going to pop like a cork. When I got to his window I smacked it lightly and his reply was the finger and a "FU*K YOU" at which point I hit the window with my fist hard enough to vaporize the safety glass. Once the window was gone I got a quick and solid shot in on his jaw. He had attempted to move into the passenger seat, but I grabbed his shirt and was pulling him out. With that, he slammed the car into drive and sped down the street. I know he has my plate and I am awaiting a visit by the local LE...

    Anyway guys, sorry for the vent, but its really helped to get it off my chest.

    Disclaimer: I am a Chicago Doc(Oncology) with no history of mental illness(other than Halo rage).

    Best,

    Try yoga. It gives me mental clarity and allows me to channel my energy better.

    I really admire Size here. I know it works, but I lack the physical harmony. Mild akinesia is a constant, so it's 1 or 2mg Lorazepam PRN. I still feel the insult but I truely don't care, it's great! Prayer help too, especially when 'stupid' people are the source. Jerks need to be taught lessons from time to time, but in front of your kids is a no no. It can really send the wrong message, and backfire on you one day. On days like that, sometimes I'll lift for 3 or 4 hours till I'm broken.

    Dr. D -- Agree with you 100%; not an excuse, but my boy is 6months old. Wife goes to Yoga daily at our club -- I'll take Size's suggestion and give it a go. I try to avoid Benzo's as they hit me hard.

    lets hope you dont have to pay too much for your mistake. That's what it is bro... a mistake. Just take it as a lesson and yea it sucks your wife and child was there to witness, but you can prevent future drama. Never been a man of yoga but i would suggest taking part of an acitivity that can take the stress off. I dont believe in roid rage.... short temper perhaps, but not 'rage'. Hope things work out for you

    Hell i've been like that for years without any suppliment help. I can't stand people who think they can be *******s without any reprocussion. The fear in their eyes almost drives me further...It takes a lot to keep straight but so far I haven't killed anyone I don't feel any more anger on a cycle than I do off though.

    Well, hopefully the guy was too afraid to drive by again and get your plate. What a jack ass! You'd think he'd be backpedaling by the time you got around to his window. I get the same way with stupid people. I'm a pretty easy going guy around friends and family, but get on my guard out in public, especially when I have my wife and kids with me. I try to save my road rage for when I get home and take it out on a canvas heavy bag. No time for wraps or bag gloves, I just beat it brutally until my knuckles are bleeding and I'm on the ground exhausted, gasping for air. May be a little crazy, but it's very gratifying.

    Doc, it was only a joke. Maybe in bad taste, but a joke. Sorry if I hit a sore spot, I meant no offense by it. If I offended you, or anyone else, by it, then I humbly apologize.

    OK, I'll lighten up. I understand that the intent was humor, otherwise it would be a bad joke.

    Now look... Pete is the only one we allow "group hugs" for and that's only when he's dieting and semi-incoherant

    You guys just keep your distance. lol

    That's a tough call. I can't blame you for doing what you did but so far you haven't gotten in trouble. Once you're in the hands of law enforcement for being violent, they own your ass. Just think of your duty to your wife and kids every time something like this happens and learn to calm yourself.

    You CAN control your anger, it just depends on how badly you want to.

    Been there, done that,
