The people in my office are for the most part harmlessly making noises/talking and I’m silently filling my rage tank. These things usually don’t bother me but seriously: stop making throat sounds, stop talking across your damn office and walk your ass over to their desk instead, and for the love of God if this phone rings ONE more time I might do something I regret.
How do you normally cope and stop yourself from hulking out?

@Leelee26: Is music allowed at work? Listen to loud music usually helps me feel a little less angry. Good luck!

Ear plugs. Great investment.

At my old job, we were split between two floors. I’d pretend that I had to talk to someone on the other floor but end up pacing the stairs to work off some steam. After 5min or so, I’d get back to my desk, and usually nobody would say anything about it.

I usually don’t want to slap anyone – just get a hysterectomy to deal with the pain.

@Leelee26: Amen. Sometimes I want to punch people for the sound of their chewing. Humans chew so loudly. I can HEAR their tongue squelching the food and saliva. BLAHASDGHASG.

Sometimes my PMS would be so bad and I would get so angry over NOTHING that I actually started scaring myself. If I was alone, I would throw dishes and break them.
But then I started taking Buspar for anxiety, and it actually REALLY helped take the edge of my PMS symptoms. My doctor said that Buspar is a really common RX for extreme PMS symptoms, so you might want to check it out if you’re so inclined.
I’m a a relatively low dose and after having terrible side effects with other drugs, Buspar is the one that helps the most and I have NO side effects.

@nyscpa2be: This is odd advice

@LMD84: LOL yeah sorry. My period was really bad this month – not really needing a hysterectomy, just to rip out all the parts to stop the pain.
