Could it be a medical thing? Have you checked with a doctor?

At least they might be able to give you something that takes the dangerous edge off.

I took anger management classes at one point, myself. Not sure whether they "worked" ... I learned some things, and I'm less angry now, but I can't really say what made me feel better. There are lots of things, I guess. No one's routinely calling me names, any more, for one thing ...

I hope you find your "something", though.

If it was triggered by something, then traditional anger management may work, but it appears to be triggered by nothing at all. Granted, it's usually the result of a buildup of stress in my life but there is nothing triggering the actual outburst.

I don't know how else to describe it.

I'll try though. I'll use a metaphor.

I have a very long fuse, but a hair trigger.

Does that make any sense?

Some. A lot of people who stuff away their anger find that it all comes out at once, some time later. That sort of thing might be helped by learning how to let it out slowly.

I would also wonder about why some times are worse than others. There could still be something medical in there.

I don't know anything for sure, honestly. That's why I would check with any professional you can.
