When you are in constant pain, there are good reasons to be upset, hopeless, and calm. Your pain may be the result of events beyond your control, or it may even be someone else’s fault – such as getting wet on a wet floor or being behind the red light when you are behind. And when their treatment or recommendations do not help, you will be disappointed to see doctors, chiropractors or physiotherapists. If the pain keeps you from doing meaningful things like going to work, doing things or exercising, the feeling of being lost can snow snow on negative emotions. And besides, you may be dealing with non-cooperative insurance companies, treatment side effects, and friends, family and co-workers who just don’t seem to appreciate your situation.
Because there are so many things to do with anger, when you feel pain, anger can become your core state. But too much anger can pose a real problem when finding relief.
Studies have shown that anger can be associated with more severe pain, and it is related to a number of different chronic pain syndromes such as fibromyalgia, low back pain and headache. Anger appears to be tied to decreased physical function and increased work-related disability. Research also suggests that anger can impair sleep quality and lead to poor coping habits. Other studies of anger and chronic pain show that increasing anger leads to the loss of emotional support and intervention in social relationships as well as other mood problems such as depression and anxiety. The more crazy we become, the more we can drive people away.
But, even if you can admit that it makes your anger worse, it’s hard to get rid of it. You may feel that “this is not good!” By releasing your anger into pain, or by losing your defense mechanism for pain. Even anger can even be a source of energy that burns you. Protect yourself from the day or shield to avoid feeling vulnerable and more vulnerable. But in the long run, the opposite seems to be true.
Sometimes the first step in processing anger is awareness. To help you evaluate the effect of anger on you, consider talking to people close to you and your doctors to discuss what they see as your behavior and mood. If your anger affects the ability of others to support you best, you probably want to know. When you pay more attention to the signs that the anger is kicking, you can re-think and look for alternative ways to respond before responding.
