A 38-year-old member asked:

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.".

Sorry it went badly: Hospitalization can be quite traumatic for some people. Not sure what happened in your case. You have a right to your medical records, and that right is independent of how the care went. Depending on what happened, you may want to talk to another mental health professional or to a lawyer, to sort out what to do next.

Not sure if they did something that resulted in harm to you or loved one, didn't fix what you wnt there for, or just were not nice to you. Regardless, find out a call the hospital administrator and tell them how they failed you. Most reputable places want to make it better if they can. You lose nothing by calmly telling them how they failed.

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.
