I love you guys! I thought I was the ONLY PERSON IN THE WORLD who could fly into insane rages over appliances. Thank you for this thread.

Learning about ADD and emotional dysregulation has really helped me control myself a little better. I don’t get mad at myself for lost keys anymore, for example.

So overall I’ve been doing pretty well, but last week, a building next to my office is being demolished and the jack hammers were 10 feet from my head. I found myself getting angry with everyone and everything and couldn’t figure it out until I realized how much more difficult it had become to focus on my job. So, I just started leaving a little early and going home and taking the dogs out for a longer walk. It helped and my dogs were really happy. I am still feeling really irritated and irritable and I hope the jack hammers go away soon and I hope I don’t piss anyone off, but at least I get what the problem is.
