I used to have a really short fuse but have got a lot better over time. I can be a bit snappy at times but the majority of the time I'm fine. \:D/

I have a fairly short fuse which is made even shorter when I have PMT...

Computers.

I should know better. I don't believe in dualism. I know it's not a malicious entity out to make my life more difficult.

I know this.

but I'll still curse their microchips unto the thirteenth generation for anthropomorphically deleting my files on purpose.

I'm conflicted. \:D/

sometimes i still do get cross but i just take a breath and crack on and sometimes just go for a run just to keep calm but i used to have a short fuse and do get cross sometimes but i have found ways to control it maybe if you find yourself getting stressed just count to 10 or take deep breaths hope this works

Maybe you should see someone about that... from time to time I have self-harmed, but I know now that it is because of my Borderline Personality Disorder.

I really think you should seek medical advice.

I do have a short temper on occasion. Over the years I have managed to fairly successfully curb this problem. It does however still fairly frequently show itself, generally in a more controlled, suppressed manner. My friends know it, jokingly as 'the rage'. Which amuses me, provided I'm not annoyed... The biggest difficulty is that once something has unsettled me in this manner, I find it difficult to let it go and the ongoing stress this causes me and those around me is generally worse than the initial problem...

Why is it we have such short fuses? Lack of any sense we are being understood?

I do quite frequently cause arguments by 'going on' at people, simply because I am constantly fearful that they won't understand what I am talking about. I can certainly find this very frustrating.
