I was in a serious head on car accident when I was about two years old, over 50 years ago. I don't know exactly how serious the brain injury was, but I am told I was till black and blue in the face months later. My head hit the radio and pushed it onto the dash at least a couple of inches. I have been struggling to control my angry reactions for all of my life. I've never physically hurt someone because I was angry, but I do react with verbal shouting and door slamming. Usually my anger subsides pretty quickly, especially if I take a break, but I still can't catch myself quick enough to prevent saying mean things or slamming something. My partner believes it's a matter of "just not doing what I do" but it's not that easy. Is she right? Or do after effects of the old injury make it harder or impossible to just not get angry?
