Hey everyone! I am new to this board and I wanted to introduce myself. I have had problems with anger my entire life. My father was a very angry person. I am absolutely not going to blame my behavior on my childhood because I believe in life we always have choices in how we act and react to events in our lives. I also came out of an abusive relationsip that lasted 3 years about a year ago. I give myself credit for surviving and leaving and I have come a long way, but still have outbursts of anger. Lastly, I have a disease called fibromyalgia which causes me severe pain. When I am in pain, I find it is even harder to hold my temper. I get easily frustrated at times and outright lose my temper and, basically, make a fool of myself. I really want to stop completely and I guess joining this community is my first step in doing so. I look forward to getting to know you all and hopefully, getting past this anger.

I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
