Hi, @veeme – you mentioned being diagnosed with intermittent explosive disorder (IED). I wanted to introduce you to @artscaping and @gingerw, who may have some thoughts for you on this condition and managing its symptoms.

Are you taking any medications to address this disorder now? If so, what are you taking, and has it been helpful?

@lisalucier Thank you for tagging me into this conversation.
@veeme Saying this is not the first time you have been diagnosed with this disorder, can you see any similarities in circumstances that brought the second diagnosis? How was the first one handled by you and your medical team? I do not know anyone with this diagnosis, but wondering if it may be an extreme reaction to events you may or may not have control over. If you are expecting something to transpire in a certain way, but it does not, is that a trigger? Have you journalled what has set you off, noticing the time of day or your social situation, and have you seen similarities? We care here and would like to help, and some more information would offer assistance.
