I've been so angry lately, how do I cool down?

I wouldn't normally think of myself as an angry person or a person with a big temper, but lately my temper has been out of control. I can't act like this anymore, it's completely unacceptable... how exactly do I calm down? [more inside]

Spanish language version of HALT (hungry, angry, lonely, tired)?

I have an English-language health handout that includes the self-care check-yourself acronym HALT (Hungry, Angry, Lonely, Tired - more background on it here). I want to have the handout translated into Spanish. Is there an "official" Spanish-language version of HALT that therapists use? I don't want to make up something new. [more inside]

I snubbed a relative, and am not sure how to make it better.

A question from a friend of mine: I was relaxing at home, and was more than a tad under the influence of Mary Jane when my brother - who lives with me - got a call from my aunt. My aunt asked to speak to me, and my brother - not realizing I was messed up - said "oh, she's right here" and immediately brought me the phone. I get VERY paranoid when I am under the influence, and refused to talk to my aunt. She is now upset with me, and I feel awful. How do I rectify this situation and save my relationship with my aunt?

How do I make peace with winter?

I grew up in Wisconsin, and have hated winter for most my life. As a kid it was okay, but since being a teen I was sure that I'd move out to a part of the country that had mild winters. Recent years though, I've come to realize I don't want to move away from friends, and I actually like parts of the city and am starting to see myself growing old here. I just really really hate winter. Can I come to terms with my hate of winter and my new found love of the area? [more inside]

How to stop my father's rages (or at least their effect on me)?

Throughout my life, my father has had anger issues, typically directed at me. Although he isn't violent, he will become extremely (almost uncontrollably) angry whenever I do anything 'wrong'. Now that I'm an adult and no longer financially dependent on him, I want to stop this cycle. However, I'm having trouble figuring out how to do this. [more inside]

Any Great Games To Play With/Against My Daughter on Two Android OS Devices?

My 8yo daughter (in a few weeks) and I love playing Plants vs. Zombies, Angry Birds and other games on Android. We play them on my Xoom, Kindle Fire, and HTC Thunderbolt (phone).

No True Scotsman punches an American in the face.

A few years back, my friend Russell (mid-twenties, American, white, male) was in Scotland, at a bus stop. It was late at night, he'd been drinking, and some guy (mid-twenties, British, white, male) came up and angrily asked him "Are you of Scottish descent?" Russell raised his hands and eyebrows in a confused "Whoa, no idea what you're on about" gesture and said, "Buddy, you got the wrong guy." The man then punched Russell in the face. WHY? [more inside]

Targets Wanted (or "I'm a dick")

I grew up with a pretty mean guy for a father. Thanks to my therapist, I have come to realize that "abusive" does not necessarily mean "illegal," and while his conduct was never the second, it was definitely the first. I'm certain many people grew up in far worse situations, but he still screwed me up, and I still get the bill. The bill comes in many forms, but one is that I'm very prone to anger, and really nasty anger at that. I'm wondering how I can either express or repress this. [more inside]
