Anger is known as a disorder, but more properly known as Intermittent Explosive Disorder (IED) is a psychological condition characterized by sporadic episodes of aggression, violence, and destructive behavior. People who suffer from anger disorder are unable to control themselves, exploding with rage in a way which is often out of proportion to the event which triggered the anger. Like many psychological disorders, IED can be treated with help from a psychological professional, but first it needs to be identified as a problem and diagnosed. As you know some people can't afford to get help and of course most don't want to admit that they have a problem. So, how do we help them?
Three key things distinguish anger disorder from other types of mood disorders which involve anger, such as bipolar disorder. The first is the presence of major property damage or serious harm as a result of one or more explosive episodes. The second is the characteristic of responses which are out of proportion, and the third is a lack of another explanation for the behavior, such as the use of mood-altering medication or an existing mood disorder. People may also experience feelings of fatigue, confusion, or distress after their explosive episodes, often compounded by guilt over their actions.
An, well i can say everyone has this disorder to some degree. Most people seem to suppress their anger and while others they tend to act out their anger. This usually leads to someone getting hurt or objects being thrown and jail time.
