    Hi everyone,
    I' expectations got a question which I've been bottling up for ages, and i don't really know how to ask it, but here goes. Since I was little, I always loved sport and been extremely competitive but in the last couple of years it's got to a point where I cannot control it and it turns into anger. I will go to any lengths whether it involves cheating or fouling, I literally don't care and I cannot think rationally. My PE teacher noticed and has always been there when I need to talk or to remind me to calm down, but lately it's been passing onto things which aren't just sport. For example I love physics but yesterday I was rude to my physics teacher and I walked out, but I know it was best for me to walk out because I was getting extremely angry. My PE teacher is the only one who really knows, and I want to talk to her but I just can't. I' coming to the end of yr11 meaning I am leaving my school, and I am worried that without her I won't be able to cope. I don't want to tell my parents but I'm getting into more and more trouble with it but the teachers don't understand and neither do my parents, and I'm too embarrassed to tell. Sorry for it being so long, but what should I do?

    Go to the doctors just to make sure it's not a condition.

    Then I would say to start running and meditation. I find aerobics and deep breathing exercises really help to calm me down. Also, drink cold water if you think you're getting agitated.

    This is unlicensed advice though.

    First of all, big props (respect) for seeking advice here

    You may have to tell your parents eventually unfortunately if it keeps scaling up better sooner than later. How do you can you say "neither do my parents" about understanding then say I'm too embarrassed to tell. You have to muster up your courage and confront your fears

    Im sure they will be understanding but if you know they are not really the understanding type, you can go to the school/local counsellor first for absolute CONFIDENTIAL talks.

    The following are general questions, please dont take offence
    Have you considered venting out residue anger through yoga/meditation?
    Have you been getting enough sleep/water/have a balanced diet/enough exercise?
    Have you gone through a large life event like moving/deaths/underlying causes?

    Maybe in the moment of angriness think of the consequences more ( I know its hard) or clench your fists or bite your tongue or take deep breaths or count to 10 veryyy slowly. These could help.
