Hi anyone who reads this I am a person who has Antisocial personality disorder and struggle with it because of the severe nature of this disorder it makes it hard to want to talk about as most people aren't sure really how it really works it is not being isolated it is being highly active against society and particular to violating the norms of society and it leading to grounds of arrest I am still learning more about my disorder and how it effects people in general if anyone has more adivse about this disorder that would be great I have studied the icd 10 and the dsm's up to current which was what was used to digasnois me

Hi, @mattrix169 – wondering how you are doing?

I'd also like you to meet @jimhd and @artscaping, who may have some knowledge of antisocial personality disorder from their past careers and ideas on how to best manage it and its effects on other people. .

You talked about antisocial personality disorder meaning one is highly active against society and particular to violating the norms of society. Do you have an example you could share of how this has affected you?

Great to hear that you are doing a lot better with the clonazapam, @mattrix169. What good effects are you noticing so far? Are you experiencing any side effects with clonazepam?

REPLY

I'm noticing that my rage and anger are pretty much gone I'm sleeping better with the Clonazepam I'm not actually feeling any side effects it just really helps balance me out

@mattrix169 – have you done talk therapy, as well? If so, was it helpful?

@lisalucier the violating society norms is something i have a huge struggle with my brother moved in where i live and he is a trigger for me we have already started fighting and it makes it difficult not to do anything.. my meds work fine for sleep and keeping my rage some what under control but not all the time he can say something or look at me wrong and I fly off the handle

Hi, @mattrix169 – Good to hear from you. I also wanted to introduce you to another Connect member, @jimhd.

And, yes, I was talking about the same thing as you are … about seeing a counselor.

I've seen a counselor during different periods of my life (e.g., my parents' divorce, breaking off an engagement to be married), and as long as you see a good one who feels like a fit for you, I've found them extraordinarily valuable. Have you found counseling helpful for you?

HI @lisalucier I did send @jimhd an message just have been kinda busy so havent checked and Ive been in counceling for almost 3 yrs now and seeing a psychatrist on and off for many years but it just seems that when i get one step ahead i go 100 back

Hi @lisalucier I was wondering if you might have some advise on keeping my unstable anger toned down from full blown rage which i just came down from about 2 days ago I snapped pretty bad got into a fight with my brother dot regret it or have any remorse seeing as he provoked the situation but I dont think I should have to be told to relax or calm down.

Hi, @mattrix169 – I agree with you — I don't care for people telling me to relax or to calm down. It just doesn't help and is pretty offputting.

We don't actually give advice here on Mayo Clinic Connect, as we are not medical professionals. Rather, the goal in this online community is to connect patients with other patients, who help and support each other tremendously.

I really commend you, as you seem very self-aware and are clearly trying to improve things in your life.

Hoping that @gingerw will return to the discussion and that @mlbaier @lighthouseceliac @parus will have some input on how to tone down your unstable anger. @jenniferhunter and @anncgrl have talked about dealing with explosive anger/rage with a loved one and may have some suggestions for you.

How is the relationship with your brother after the fight you mentioned?

REPLY

@lisalucier it is not in the best place but Im trying to make him understand that i am very prone to violent attacks or being aggressive when told to relax I told my mom to remind him that those phrases will send me into a rage but i will keep you posted on how things are going
