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?

She is in excellent shape, really exercises a lot, and eats well... not at all overweight. Anyone else have any issues with this? I did find that it can go with PKD. She was reading that there are...
