I'm really upset right now. My husband has explained to me how out of control I have let my anger get and I need to get a handle on it. He doesn't know how much more he can take. I need help learning how to recognize the signs and control it. My husband has been my best friend for over 16 yrs and we have been together for 6yrs.

I have PTSD, anxiety and depression issues. PTSD is from a long history of torture and abuse the Doctor said. Outside of those I have nothing. I swore to myself I'd never be like my birth mother but the way my husband described the things I do and how I make him feel, I am all but just like her. I can't lose my best friend and the love of my life. I can see I need to change but no idea where to start besides trying therapy. My job involves me traveling a lot so I wouldn't be able to see a therapist weekly.

@Elm43086 You might need extra help for a while such as an antidepressant of course it isn't for everyone but some people really need it. It definitely can help regulate your moods so you can focus more on developing and learning skills to help yourself. You could try therapy over video calls or just the phone for a while. If you are open to trying an antidepressant then you could start with that so make an appt with your Dr soon. There are many things you can start doing that can make a difference and help the anxiety, depression, PTSD, and the anger. Google grounding techniques, breathing techniques for anxiety then pick out a few to try see which ones you like better and do them in the morning and at night it will really help you but you have to do it and keep practicing everyday. I'm talking about just taking ten to fifteen min in the am and pm. I learned we have to do the work to help ourselves. I supported you. If you ever want to personal message with anyone you both have to support each other. There's plenty of people here that are extremely helpful and supportive. It's no surprise that you might suffer with some of the same traits as your mother after all she's your mother and you were exposed to all of that. It's pretty common for most people to have some of their parents traits good and not so good. You are not your mother though so cut yourself some slack show yourself some compassion because you are a person just like anyone else, you need some help and guidance. Heck I need guidance all the time. I come on here quite often and just read what others are posting and the supportive replies they get it's helpful.
