I'm so stressed and irritated lately. Anything anyone says makes me want to punch them or yell at them. What can I do to chill out?

That is really up to you how you proceed, after all it is your life and no one can fix what is wrong except you.. It sounds to me like you take most all things way to seriously.. and all it is causing you is a lot of hear ache.. you must try chilling out a bit.. there are many things that can and do make people get very agitated.. make a list of them maybe.. and put them into perspectives.. you may just find the ones that are just not worth it.. and the ones that are.. hope all goes well no mater what you choose to do.. but the ball is in your court.. it always has been0

last year i was like that due to a really shitty job i had to take and it made me feel as if i'm gonna end up in jail for hitting someone. i started seeing a therapist and he worked with me on taking care of myself first. for example, i started doing something i like: making a nice meal for myself, meditating, buying something that i really want (like a nice ring or incense sticks, nothing expensive), took relaxing baths and so on. in the beginning i wanted to punch my therapist in the face as well cause i felt it won't help, but it did. it helped me be more relaxed and satisfied with myself. we can be our worst enemies or our worst friends. i know this is probably the last thing you want to hear right now, but nobody's gonna take care of you the way you can take care of yourself. so make yourself happy by doing things you really like. do it even if you think it won't help. first few times you might not see the change, but later you'll begin to see that people can't piss you off that much. to be clear, i still sometimes want to hit someone, but the urge is not nearly strong as it was year ago, because i know that whenever someone gets on my nerves i can go home, cook myself a lovely meal or fill in the tub and enjoy. it may sound like crap (i know), but now i'm more like - ok, you're an idiot and i won't waste my time on you, i will 'waste' my time doing something i like and not giving you the satisfaction of ruining my day :)0
