Anger, Overreaction
My mom has developed severe health issues due to her ill-treated anger. She gets extremely angry over very silly things and overreacts for hours on it. She keeps talking about it non-stop for 8-10 hours bringing all past issues happened within 28 years of her marriage. I think, she requires emotional attention from my father which he is unable to provide due to his practical nature probably. Her behavior is severely affecting my sister & me in a bad way. Please help!

Hello..Although your query is incomplete, it looks like most probably your mother is going through depression. A lot of women around their menopause have mood swings and depressive symptoms. Since it's affecting her as well as your entire family i guess, it is important to get a psychiatric evaluation. Be patient with her while talking. I know it may be difficult but do not blame her or react to whatever she says. She is going through a tough phase. Small dose of medications will help. Get thyroid and Vitamin B12 and Vitamin D levels.
Next Steps
Psychiatric evaluation, Thyroid hormone test Vitamin B12, Vitamin D levels

Hi...... Bring down your general stress levels with exercise and relaxation. Running, walking, swimming, yoga and meditation are just a few activities that can reduce stress. Exercise as part of your daily life is a good way to get rid of irritation and anger.... A typical anger management programme may involve one-to-one counselling and working in a small group.... Consult Psychiatrist for further advice.....
