ANGER: Seek psychotherapy. When people are traumatized repeatedly, or otherwise past a certain point, emotional development and maturity stops. Seek psychotherapy; there is absolutely NO shame in doing so.

My mom is always angry. Does this mean that something is wrong with her mentally?

Not necessarily: It sounds like you are worried about your mother. Do you get along well enough to risk asking her why she seems so angry all the time? Do you feel you are the cause of her anger? Anger is usually a sign of great stress. What kind of stress is she under - financial, family problems, depression? Do what you can to help and encourage her. Let her know you care. Have you suggested counseling? Do!

Learn Tolerance: We all struggle with anger and frustration every day. Learning to get perspective, take deep breaths, and be as tolerant as possible is good for you on many levels: stress reduction, blood pressure control, improved relationships, etc. If you have any faith in a higher power, try the serenity prayer... My mantra: "bless them, change me.".

Dreams = emotions?: Such a recurring dream that seems to hold importance to you may be your emotions telling you something. Journaling and using free-association while journal about your dreams may help you connect to the angry affect of the dream. You may also seek the help of a therapist who can help you understand those dreams and how they relate to your life. They should not tell you what they mean.

UNDERSTAND WHY IT : Happens. Read a bit on it, it is a lot easier to deal with when you know why she gets like that.

A 44-year-old member asked:
I've been getting angry at the little things lately. Wonder why? Love-hate?

Irritability: Getting angry at the little things sounds like what we call irritability. Irritability is the sudden realization that you are surrounded by the stupidest drivers in the world... Or that nothing works right. It can be a symptom of many things - trouble with sleep, pain, fatigue, depression or a mood disorder like depression or bipolar.
