I've gotten much better at controlling my anger but I still have bursts of what is pretty much rage sometimes, generally I am aware that I am out of control but feel as if I cannot rein it in/stop it. I know I should but I can't seem to do it. However I really want to learn to, a big thing that has helped is to walk away from the situation. If I'm angry at my computer or at a task I am doing walk away, do something else to distract myself or use our punching bag to relieve the tension. However a problem for me is I cann't really do any of these things in the car, and I will scream at people (not so they can hear me, just inside my car) or speed up really fast, not while others are nearby and I don't drive crazily, but still not good! I am trying to look into ways I can calm down when I am in the car. Currently I am looking into aromatherapy scents that might help me calm down, does anybody know of scents that are known for reducing anger? I know lavender is calming, it's one of my favorite scents too but any other suggestions? I was also thinking about some sort of CD I could play in the car that is aimed at calming you down whether it's soothing music or breathing exercises etc. Does anybody else have any other tips?

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips.
