The Hulk

Today, I was diagnosed with intermittent explosive disorder, meaning that I involuntarily fly into a rage without provocation. It's only controlled by healthy eating and sleeping. I work too much to get any sleep, I don't make enough money to eat well, and my disorder limits my ability to find a job that pays more. FML

Eating healthy is not expensive. Making a good pot of red beans and rice or a pot roast in a slow cooker, even with “expensive” ingredients, comes out to about $3.00 a meal.

Exercise helps with sleep and anxiety. When I worked nights and had to sleep in the day, seeing the sun ruined sleep for me for hours and no sleeping aid helped. If this effects you, you gotta get your bed room blacked out and a very dim light for the bathroom.

Other than that, chill the f out and have a good time

red. beans and rice is not that healthy and $3/meal is about than the federal government thinks SNAP recipients should spend on food, so a broke person might have a lower budget.

Depression can be fought with a healthy diet and exercise. Same with anxiety. Mental disorders are chemical balances, the right diet can help supplement, suppress, or activate the hormones that trigger them.

as someone with a degree in psychology many many mental disorders are helped with proper diet, sleep, and experience. Add talk therapy to that mix and you have a solution that's as effective if not more than medication in many instances. now may I ask what background you have that gives you any kind of credibility or grounds to call her real doctor a quack, because it's very obvious that what you've been hearing is incorrect.

What is intermittent explosive disorder?
Intermittent explosive disorder is a lesser-known mental disorder marked by episodes of unwarranted anger. It is commonly described as “flying into a rage for no reason.” In an individual with intermittent explosive disorder, the behavioral outbursts are out of proportion to the situation.


Intermittent explosive disorder may best be treated by a combination of cognitive behavioral therapy and medications.

I would highly suggest consuming more fruits and vegetables whenever possible, regardless of any dietary restrictions or preferences. Fresh is best, but frozen or canned can also help and are generally cheaper. It’s actually fairly easy to eat both cheaply and healthily, but only if you get out of the mindset that I healthy eating is expensive.

I was diagnosed with this myself when I was younger.
Therapy and Prayers helped me some. Some 40 years later I find if I "talk" to myself and think calming rational thoughts,that helps too

I don't think the government would consider this as a good enough reason to get Disability....though would be nice as I too suffer from this...
