    My sisters 16 year old boyfriend has just moved in with us due to being kicked out of his own home. He has been having night terrors nearly every night. They're not normally so bad... Normally just a bit of incoherent talking, but last night he became very physical. He first had an episode of walking across the room incoherently talking, eventually returning back to his bed. Later in the night (early morning around 5am) he began kicking and shouting (the shouting sounded like a "ruh ruh" sound). When my sister tried to wake him (which normally works and knocks him out of it) he unknowingly went for her. I wouldn't say he attacked as he didn't intentionally hurt her as no punches or kicks were thrown at her, he just pinned her down. Obviously this scared my sister senseless (especially since checking used to suffer from night terrors herself at a younger age). He is an amazing kid and the family love him so we just want to make sure we're there for him... But I think this is probably more serious now then just common sleep walking and talking. As I said before, my sister (and also my brother) used to have night terrors when she was younger (screaming, not recognising my parents, telling me to get out the room, amnesia of the event) and after seeing a therapist/doctor/councillor, she grew out of it (only having the occasional night terror, normally when she is woken too quickly due to loud noises). Is there anything we can do for my sisters boyfriend? He has had problems with his anger in the past but went through anger management and displays no signs of problems with his anger during the day. Is the anger manifesting during the night? Or could it be related due to the fact of being kicked out of home? He is from an unstable home and did suffer from night terrors prior to moving in with us.

    I've moved in with my girlfriend and am stressed and experiencing night terrors. It's not nice :( I think it's due t stress.

    I am 18 and I have anger issues, they have been dealt with and I have had night terrors for as long as I remember I normally sit up scream and lash out, this is caused by my mixture of anger and stress. This was never originally a problem but I now share a bed with my 17 year old girlfriend, I have also caused her injury by lashing out trying to protect myself from threat or what I presume is one. The best advice I can give is for her to leave the room when he is at a bad stage to prevent herself from harm or fear and to let it pass. He is doing this because of the change in routine and of his family environment/situation it should pass but it will help for him to confront/deal with the issues he is facing.

    During birth I was given an episiotomy yet still had a third degree tear. I was taken to surgery and have follow up appointments with the GP, Physio, midwives, and Gynagology. So far (7wks) the stitches are healing however the damage to the muscle is already done and I cannot feel anything inside. I am getting better at controlling my urine however the Physio said I could not have treatment unless I regain some muscle control first. I am so worried about e long term damage, whether ill be able to carry anger child, give birth, the risk of prolapse etc. the doctor is confident I will be able to carry anger child as its early days however the Physio said there's a risk of prolapse if my muscle doesn't improve significantly. Has anyone else gone though this. I'm struggling to sleep as I can't stop reliving it, I don't see how I could have an episiotomy and still tear so badly.

    Those symptons could well be depression. They can be very unpleasant and spoil your daily life. You can't help it and it doesn't have to be caused by anything in particular, and no matter how much you try and motivate yourself you can't always get rid of it on your own. I reccomend you speak to your GP, there are several (very safe) medications they can prescribe you that can have you feeling much better in the space of a month, and for as long as it's necessary to take them. The problem might be bought on by puberty and the fact you're a growing teenager, but don't just wait to grow out of it and be miserable - it might take years. Get the doctor to help you. If you are depressed, it might seem a hard state to get out of but you'd be amazed at the helpful effects that the medication to treat it can have. I know because I once suffered something similar to depression. Good luck.

    thanks but i darnt go to the doctorr .. incase he/she thinks im pathetic or whatever and then my family would find out and they have enought to deal with x

    I have Aspergers and I have only been recently diagnosed. When me and my parents look back at my child, it looks blatantly obvious that I had it. I really struggle with day to day life and I find it quite hard to cope in school. I don't really have any friends because I am known as the outsider because I am different. I also have really bad anger issues which doesn't help because I am always getting in trouble at school, I also have a very low self-esteem which doesn't help matters. I wanted to know if you knew anybody that could help me? I don't want to be an outsider any more.

    i think you need a hobby and a school that knows how to recognise special people like us

    Danni, I'm not going to just say join a club and meet people with similar interests as I have been told that far too many times and that information is use less until you break the barrier between you and them. Just remember You can't be the only one with social issues at your school.And one of the reasons that your an outsider is because of your anger.How can anyone let you be in their social group if they're too afraid you'll fight them off.It took me a long time to realise it but not everyone wants to hurt you,some just want to be mates or are too scared to say no to those you make you feel bad.I know it doesn't feel like it but it is your choice who you are, its whether you will be brave enough to choose.

    i have suffered recently from depression an actually came of my low dose of antidepressants(5mg)thinking they were not effective but after listening to leanne's pms symptoms i am realising this last two an a half wks of severe agitation,bouts of anger,night sweats, has been down to pms,it was terrible, not a good combination, depression and pms!!!!! is there anythingelse out there other than drastic surgery to ease the pms, big time.....i would sincerely appreciate your help as im trying my best to deal with my depression, being more aware of my feelings but need more than 1wk every mth to feel better bout myself!!!

    Hi Marie My name is Leanne I was on EB on Friday. I am so sorry to hear about your PMS and so hope so of the less invasive treatments manage your symptoms better. There are all sorts of routes to go down, I was given the pill, mefenamic acid, pessaries and SSRI anti depressants. You may find that your depression maybe linked entirely to your periods and can kill two birds with one stone I know mine was! As the previous poster suggested keep a diary, it needs to be at least three months long and basically chart everything from how much caffeine intake you have had to alcohol to see if there is anything aggravating it further. Also note how painful the periods are from 1-5, how heavy they are and how it is effecting your quality of life. I do hope you get this sorted, Leanne x

    Yesterday a rash has come out under my knee which is tingling , warm and ugly looking. I'v been having the depo provera jab for over a year and was told that I should keep an eye out for blood clots and images on Google do look similar to my leg . I went to the nurse and was told its an allergic reaction bit today the rash has spread outwards and the middle has gone a darker blue not sure if I should see someone else or leave it ? she said to put any cream on it bit wasn't specific but don't want to anger it. Any advice would be great as I have a party Thursday ..thanks

    Try a merina coil, my mum swears by it, it releases progesterone into the body which balances out you hormones. My mum has had her menopause but the family planning clinic told her she might as well kept it in, as its doing wonders for her hormones.

Show more…

    hey im 14 and the doctors said that I have a male hormone imbalance but I dont no what it is?? And also I would like to no if it's to do with anger. I started to developing when I was around 7-8. I had tests done and everything. The reason why I ask about the anger issue is because of the male hormone imbalace, Yes it might just be a teenage thing but im not sure. I am on the contraceptive injection but I bleed for 3 months straight, I don't no whether to carry on with this injection or not!!

    you can go to the your doctor and get pills to prevent puberty for a while, it may help her to become more prepared and accepting of it.

    hii, I am 13 year old girl and i seem to be getting stressed a lot more recently. I have just finished this years exams but still have one to go and that did cause me a lot of stress beacause of the time of my french exam my 'mate' was giving me a hard time and he just so happened to be in my french class, so during the exam i couldn't concentrate. Also my other 'mate' is really stressing me out because he calls me and my mates but if we dare to even call him back he runs off crying. My stress is often followed by anger, so i get dead stressed then all that stress gets turned into anger and i don't know how to express my anger. when i am angry i feel like doing some damage to them ut i don't, then i feel like tearing a tree from the ground (i know impossible right),but afterwards because i havent gotten my anger out i take it out on people and i dont mean to. I also get called at school but i wouldnt exactly call it bulling, they take the mik really but it still annoys me and makes me upset. Then my mum and sister had an argument and my sister walked out and i went crying to my friend because i couldn't take it anymore. Even though they have worked things out now, during the time it was happening i cut my wrists and this is the first time ive ever confessed it, my mates saw but i said i fell against a wall. I havent done it since but have had thoughts about doing it again because all the anger has just built up over the years and it made me feel better. I've tried taking to my mum for some of what i wrote but she says nothing or nothing useful. I dont want to see my doctor either because i dont like him because once he called me fat. please help me cope with the stress of high school and growing up. please reply.

    i also have been feeling sick a lot lately and been suffering headaches, i've had one every day this week.(same person who posted the comment above, by the way).

    Hi Leanne, I am coming to a realisation that I may also suffer with this disorder. My husband is so far supportive but my emotional outbursts, particularly my anger, are damaging to our relationship. The feelings of guilt I experience after my outbursts start off a cycle of sadness anxiety and anger that is very difficult to break and thoroughly exhausting. My doctor prescribed a SSRI. My husband and I do not want me to start taking it through fear it will alter the "real me" and become addictive. Are there any forums or support groups that exist for us?

    I have been reading your page about stress I feel I need some help dealing with my problem the biggest thing that sets me off is losing competitions I used to play bingo down my local pub where you would play to win cash prizes if I ended up losing I would walk out feeling frustrated there was one time I got to fuming point I didn't return home I went to find somewhere to where no one was around I was christian at the point and would often vent my anger out on god. recently I have started taking part in competitions on some facebook pages to do with a game called trainstation a simulation game when it comes to losing my anger kicks in some competitions that are played are lotteries and games like first 5 to comment etc it is getting to the point where my anger levels are getting the best of me yesterday and the day before I was so frustrated I was slapping myself hard on the cheek and forehead and crying today wasn't to bad mostly shouting and swearing I often also go in to the phase of not giving a something mood I also tend to get a little angry when it comes to missing buses I really need some help or advise

    Hi, I also struggle with really bad anger problems, and when I mean bad I mean to the point where I get angry at such little things for example if my pen stops working just once I throw it as hard as I can and I just start punching things. I've been to a few anger management sessions but they didn't go so well (I don't want to go into detail about that) and I thought I was never going to get better (this was about a year ago) and even though I've had help I still have the same anger problems today, I don't know what is wrong with me, like sometimes I get so angry I literally have thoughts about killing someone and if I don't stop myself I sometimes almost actually act on that and when I do catch myself trying to act up on it I remember that its not right and I end up destroying my knuckles to the point where I have to go to the hospital for them to check if it's broken or not, and somehow my knuckles have never broken, and I do punch walls full on very regularly, and by the way I'm only 16. One thing that I found that helps me calm down when I'm angry is listening to music, find a few song's that you really like and that have a calming affect on you and whenever you feel like your getting angry just stick earphones in and try to relax. That's what I do and even though I still cannot calm down totally using any techniques it might help you. One thing that does help me though is talking to a person who knows my situation, understands what I'm going through, and she just genuinely knows how to make me feel better, and she usually does make me feel better and happier. Just find that one person that you feel comfortable talking too/with and whenever you feel angry stick music in and see if you can talk to them. I hope I helped. :)

    Thnak you for your help Norbert I have spoken to my nan about the problem and that helped me out alot I don't feel as stressed now but always continue to listen to music

    I promised myself seen as I read a lot of the forums on advice that if I managed to tackle my vile verucca I would write one! so here goes... I had mine for as long as I can remember probably 5 years and assumed it was hard skin. I went to have a treat to have my hard skin done on my feet about 2 years ago and the chiropodist told me it was a verucca. I had a few treatments from her which was a black lotion she put on which didn't work, and at £20 a visit was quite costly. I did try the tale of banana skin, but didn't really work with duct tape. also tried bazzuca. so I am now also 6 months pregnant but actually got to the stage where I was getting rather peed off!! so I went to the chemist and shock everything you couldn't use because of the pregnancy but she said I could use bazucca that verucca. so this time I brought the extra strength one which is 26% acid where as the previous one I tried was 10%. so my routine I did for 2 weeks was constant filing with a nail file until it bled, then let it stop bleeding holding a tissue against it, then I put 2 layers of the bazucca on over night then the next night repeated this. I will warn you it was agony to walk on as u are right to the black roots hence the bleeding but try bare it. then it eventually eased and I continued it. then the vile bit.... I held my foot up and my husband gently dug the top layer of skin off with a Stanley knife. you could see the little black dots which is the roots and it eventually went I have now got one on my finger which I've obviously caught from doing my foot but I have repeated exactly same process and its just going. good luck and hope it works for u all.

    I am not too worried about loss of sensation, as i don't really have too much already. As for sex, with my depression, my confidence and self esteem is a constant low, the lowest it has ever been, and it has caused me to develop an angry mood constantly, anything and everything annoys and irritates me because of my issues, and as a result, my sex life has already been ruined. All which is fault of my own. I have constant guilt about how my relationship with my boyfriend has become, because of my depression, I have pushed everyone away, and he is all I have left, I know I will end up losing him if changes to me aren't made, I want these changes for me, and no one else, but my looks are what trigger the depression and anger. The hardest thing is that I have reached the end, I have tried and tried and there is nothing else in my power that I feel I can do, I cant even help myself, when it is me that is the problem. As time has gone on, I knew that eventually I wouldn't be able to go out in public, and that has become true, I struggle so much, and it leads me to tears and anger at every single female. Self harm has been a persistant thing due to my depression. I would love to have children one day, but with the way I am, I wouldn't dare to bring a child into this mess, my mind is not stable enough, I am so desperate for the surgery, I wish people took me more seriously, I am 19, and I am technically a woman and of age, I just wish I felt and looked like one.

    bro you need some medicine. take a minute to calm down. i use to have the same anger problem. take some therapy conentrate more. and do everything you can in your power.

    I have stress every so often. I cry alot, and I get offended and can't control my anger. I get upset easily, and I just want to die, sometimes, I think that i'm fat, and I starve myself every so often.

    I am 19. I've been self harming for 5 years now. I have several mental health conditions and have tried therapy. I have attempted suicide over 10 times and have been in hospital alot. Doctors call my suicide attempts a Melodaptive coping strategy. I have deep scars covering my body I also want to find a way to cover up my scars but I have found a few things to help me stop self harming: 1)Tattoos - Feel amazing pain (a lot like the pain cutting gives you), look better than scars, prevents me cutting where the tattoos are. 2) Biting myself (without sucking, that's dangerous). Don't bit too hard abd to leave scars and be careful! 3) Elastic band on my skin. Feels good flicking it on my skin, doesn't scar. 4) Drawing on my skin. Pretty drawing help prevent me from harming. 5) Turning my anger/upset into energy in which I run, jump, use all my anger up by turning it into physical energy and go to the park or gym.

    Fruit and veg are the main triggers for my constipation. I don't think you should be recommending them so casually. It's poison for me. Shame because I love veg. You can imagine my anger after being a vegetarian for a couple of years.

    I believe I am suffering from PMDD and it effecting my life and the realtionships in it.Mostly it affects my eldest son. I scream and shout and say nasty things and the anger and aggression is so bad I want to let rip. I then sob as I know this is not me. I have two beautiful children who are my life but for some reason my anger is aimed more at my 17 year old as apposed to my 9 year old. If my youngest ever sees the "poorly mummy" he cant handle it. The saddest thing is that my eldest son says I would rather you do it to me than to (his little brother). I would rather not be like that to either of them. The guilt is like no other feeling and I fear I have destroyed his self esteem and made him feel he is inferior. I have taken anti ds for years although was convinced it wasnt depression. I was given the pill to help with my periods but it hasnt done anything more than just that. After discussing with my dr (who basically said I should stop reading the internet) she stopped my anti ds with no reduction and I have now been feeling sick, sad, emotional, anxious etc because I know its going to be a quick spiral to the dark place where I only just survive through the instincts to look afte my children. I am frightened about what Im doing to my children and that Im teaching them that it is normal to behave this way. I can tell them Im not myself but it doesnt stop the hurt they feel. I am considering a hysterectomy and I ended up here on my search for information as to whether it works for PMDD. Has anyone had personal experience with having a hysterectomy and if its eased the pmdd? Also was it a full hysterectomy as I understand that sometimes a partial hysterectomy is done. The more info the better really. Thank you :)

    I had a total hysterectomy 15.8.13 and it rid me of pmdd forever! Please look up NAPS nationally association premenstral syndrome, its free to register and literally saved my life. Get looking through the forum posts and you will feel relieved and get some brilliant advice. I'm on there I shall look out.

    I have suffered from night terrors for as long as I can remember, I have just learned to live with them. I find sleeping with the hall light on helps. If I don't, it seems that I wake myself up, trying to get to a light switch or some other form of light. I rarely remember the reasons why I have them, jumping out of bed fighting to escape something or someone. If I manage to not fully wake up during them it helps a lot, I am not so tired the next day. But if I am woken up, it takes a long time to come down from the level of panic I had been in, adrenalin probably, fight or flight. Fortunately my poor partner takes it well, he knows to just speak to me calmly telling me its alright, and not to wake me up fully if he can help it, my brain seems to start telling me its not real and then I go back to sleep. He then has great fun laughing about the antics I got up to he night before, but who can blame him. It drives me mad when GP's and things like this article say its about stress, or anger management. I am a very laid back none stressed and none angry person. It seems if they can't blame it on smoking or drinking its stress. What happens if you have none of those. If I have been stressed and angry for the past 40+ years I doubt I would have lived this long. I did have a very problemed child hood and suspect that may have something to do with it. But who knows. I do know its not stress and its not anger. If you can try and learn to live with it, the more you worry about having them it seems the more you have them, sods law.
