i do not get angry. i fill with rage. this used to be a problem for me. i would throw things. scream. kick in doors. fight. until i realized why – i did not know any other way to respond to the sensation of being extremely threatened. yes. that is how i felt most of the time – THREATENED – i still do.
however, now i have another way of dealing with it. i walk the other way. even if i have adhd and asperger’s, i do have a choice. in that split second before my emotion runs amok i can recognize what is coming and turn away from the person or situation that is threatening to me.
