Our expert says:
Hi kd, Sounds as if, though the problem may express itself in rage towards your spouse or others, the real problem lies in a sense of low self-worth and self-esteem, and of previously missed opportunites. While such anger may be understandable, it's obviously not at all useful --- it provides little relief and no solutions.
This situation certainly is amenable to help, especially as you have already taken the most important step, of recognizing that you have a problem and that it needs to be dealt with. Arrange to see a good clinical psychologist or psychiatrist for a proper assessment, and then discuss treatment options. Psychotherapy / counselling, dealing with these issues of self-esteem, and anger management, could make a really significant difference, to the benefit of all of you
