3. How do you deal with anger?

Anger is a difficult emotion for me.  When I get angry, I don’t handle it in a healthy way.  I tend to just bottle it up inside and become withdrawn and quiet.  I rarely release my anger and sometimes can hold onto something that has caused me to be angry for days, weeks or even months.  I often wonder if this could be the cause of a lot of my health issues.  Both physical and mental.  I have ulcerative colitis and IBS.  This has a tendency to be triggered when I am upset or overly stressed.  I also have high blood pressure which I know is also caused by bottled up emotions that I never let out.  It is a standing joke in our house that my husband who definitely releases his anger has perfect blood pressure.  He claims that if I learned to if I learned to let out some of my pent up aggressions that I probably would have normal blood pressure as well.  I’m not sure if his theory is all that accurate, but I guess it would be worth a try.
