Time away from social media... anger

Firstly sorry to quite a few people who I have not responded to over the past couple days, just decided to take a break from social media due to my anger getting the better of me and snapping at people who did not deserve it but I have seen everyones nice messages and I am listening to the advice given.

I have always had pretty bad anger and my job don't really help I guess. My job requires me to have a 'tough image' and I'm constantly dealing with fights, drunks, threats with knives, bottles etc but as I say I have always had bad anger so I can't really blame it on my job.

My anger was always controllable but when I snapped I snapped bad... since this whole PTSD Anxiety deal I have not been able to control my temper very well at all... guess I'm just getting sick and tired of this. Ive never been the vulnerable type and am not used to all this getting in touch with your emotions type stuff my therapist has been telling me to do.

Anywho not expecting a response, just wanted to vent.

Hope everyones having a great day today!

It dosnt matterhow big you are, what job you do we all feel vulnerable at times. Social media is often a curse anyway. A lot of it is fake!! Everyone's becoming addicted to there phones so it's nice that you can take a step back from it from time to time. Do what's right for you. It's sounds like you have unresolved issues regarding your anger. I've had ptsd , you can come through it you really can. It's just finding the way that works for you that's the key.
