I'm always angry. It seems as if everything gets me angry. I don't want people talking to me, touching me or anything. I just want to be left alone. I am happy staying home and not bothering with anyone, outside of my immediate family (my children). I try real hard to put on a happy front for them, but they know something is wrong. I tell them it has nothing to do with them, it's just me.

If your quality of life is affected by this attitude, then you need to do something to change it. There are several ways to do this. You can seek counselling. You can read and meditate and increase your level of introspection.

I'm always surprised at how people cling to their neuroses, to the point that they delude themselves into being satisfied by a poor quality of life. But that is the American way - we cherish our faulty defense mechanisms, in a vain attempt to protect ourselves from pain. The real pain comes from alienation and loneliness that comes from self-imposed isolation.

After a while, what we fear controls our lives. To me, this is no way to live. Throughout my life I have promised myself to never become bitter, or put up the shell that would keep out new experiences and life and keep in my bitterness and anguish. The very concept is alien. But for some people, fear is their motivator. It restricts who they have to see and talk to, and who they have to experience.

We have the ability to choose our own attitude, from who we surround ourselves with to how we approach strangers. It's amazing to me how few people realize this.

Sometimes it seems easier to block all out, and push all away, than to deal with things, and take a risk. Then all of a sudden we wake up and realize how we have literally locked our selves in a very small unrewarding world. The key to getting out of that world is in your possession. It is going to take some work, and you are going to need to take a look at your past, to create a new future. You can start some of the work on your own, but since you have been so isolated, perhaps it would be good for you to talk to some one. These threads are a good start, and perhaps with some insight from here, and some insight from books, it will help you to get an idea who, what where why and when, to make it easier to present the circumstances to a counselor, and easier for the counselor to help you formulate your personal solution program. Nothing ever changes until we are sick and tired of being sick and tired, or angry in your case.

Suppressed anger does really weird things to people.

Like Molly and Cici suggest you need a change.

Some of the standard things suggested on this site might help...
a journal
exercise
your M.D. (be honest with them)
Mental health agency
a counselor
a pastor or religious figure
friends
check your nutrition-you are what you eat (food allergies are real!!!and they do affect emotions)
READ - time at a local bookstore or library in the self help and psych sections

YOU are in charge of you. But it sounds like what you are doing is affecting those who love you. YOu can tell them forever that it is not them but if you are pushing them away...what are they going to believe? YOur actions or your words?

Let us know what's up!!

Thank you to everyone who wrote me back. I went to my local mental health department and I've started counseling. I know I have tons of supressed items to take care of. I know it will be a long road but I'll do what I have to do to feel better.

Thanks again
