Patient discussion about anger

Q. Do you believe that anger can be one of the main causes of depression? People say that I am short tempered. I feel like to yelling at everybody. I feel that I am flying off the handle too often and this has led to depression. Do you believe that anger can be one of the main causes of depression? If so, why?

A. Hi my firebrand friend! I could feel that you are not at all short tempered ? but in my case, I think it has been. While depression certainly is an illness caused by a chemical imbalance in the brain, I think anger can trigger symptoms akin to depression. Looking back now at my last hospitalization, I see that I was angry with someone most unreasonably so. So I started feeling guilty about this. I have time now to think about the situation that happened. I know I had over-reacted. I am much better now after medication to cure my depression and have started reasoning out every situation and find that I react better to people.

Q. I am really scared to discuss with him on this issue. Hi! I’m Olivia. These days, my husband is very much irritated, showing anger, extremely sad, try to be lonely , shouts to the core and does not show interest in sex . I am really scared to discuss with him on the issue. When I did discuss with my friend, she said all this might be the symptoms of Bipolar Disorder and advised me to consult a Physician.. Can anyone in this Forum please help me out?

A. Methinks all these brain disorders have everything to do with a lack of copper. With all our modern technology and artificial fertilizers and processing of foods, the food has become so depleted of minerals that our bodies and brains have become so depleted that we cannot even function properly. Start taking kelp, calcium magnesium, cod liver oil, flax seed oil, and raw apple cider vinegar. This will bring healing and normal function to the brain and body systems. The emotions will calm down and be more manageable. If he is taking a vitamin with more manganese than copper it will add to the dysfunction. Don't waste your money.

Seriously, if you can get him to take all of these things, it can help sweeten his personality. My husband noticed a difference in me within two weeks, my kids are giving me positive feedback after two years. I am much more calm and have a lot more control of the 'flashouts'.
