beaglegirl Posted July 21, 2008 Share Posted July 21, 2008 A little backgroud.. I've been with my boyfriend for 3+ years and of that time, we have lived together for over 2 years. Generally speaking, things are great but this anger issue has been insurmountable lately. He is not the type of person to discuss his problems or anything.. he keeps everything bottled up and explodes later. Combine that with someone who has a very,very short fuse. He blows up about just about everything lately. He takes it out on me, the dog, or whatever is around. He often does not remember what he says or what he does after his angry episodes, but I certainly do. He's mean, sometimes violent with things.. he's never hit me, but he did raise his hand like he was going to once. It scares me. It's like he isn't in his right mind. I try to get him to just take a time out, which usually helps but he is never done with one of these little episodes without something broken/ripped/ damaged etc. To make it even worse, he is very picky about me not 'telling him what to do' so trying to force him to do anything just brings on another episode. I have talked to him about this in a calmer moment and seemed to get a bit through to him, but I can't press the issue a lot. I don't want to leave him, but I also can't let this continue. I just don't know what to do- nothing seems to work! Link to comment
