    Your insights are helpful, I can easily get moved to anger. I have a different problem though – I find at times my husband is over solicitous and I become angry/upset because I feel he’s too helpful making me feel helpless and so I cry. Guess I need to work on that.

      Greg, thanks. It is a truth I live and breathe every day. Some days it’s easy to remember and other days I have to force myself, but every day it is a constant reminder to myself!

    I just happened to come across this and its completely relatable. My husband is my biggest trigger and half the time I throw in the towel when we argue . He always blames my bipolar. But I think that I’ll just go away to my safe place and take a breather.

    Finally, I don’t feel like a monster! I actually searched bipolor II Why do my kids trigger rage in me? This is what I found. I’m so sick of myself literally. I feel like throwing up after one of my screeching fits. My head throbs, my muscles tense. My kids are in tears. I’m in tears. All because my I kids’s start bickering. Or they act sassy with me. Or are non-compliant. Why does it send me over the edge? Well, I’m completely off any meds for last 6 weeks. They weren’t working anymore and I wanted to let my symptoms really come to the surface. Now we can start fresh when I go for next evaluation. Thanks for sharing, and for lettinge me share my misery. God bless.

    To me, it seems to sound like regular irritation and annoyance. I think anyone with these triggers would get annoyed. If I just cleaned and someone made a mess straight afterwards it would piss anyone off.
