Is Irritable Male Syndrome Affecting Your Relationships? Learn the Signs

Irritable male syndrome (IMS) is a condition where men become angry easily. They may get upset or even violent when they are not getting their way in some situation. Some of them may even threaten suicide if things don’t change. Others just act like a spoiled child who doesn’t want to do anything except play video games all day long.

What causes it?

It’s been known since ancient times that women have a higher incidence of IMS than men. However, there was no definite reason why. It wasn’t until the 1980s that scientists began studying the matter further. There were several theories put forward at the time; however none of them could explain how this happened.

One theory was that women had a greater capacity for anger due to hormonal differences. Another theory suggested that men were simply more likely to express their emotions than women. A third theory proposed that men were simply more aggressive than women. All these theories have been disproven now years later, but they still exist today!

The most popular explanation for IMS is called “emotional abuse”. Emotional abuse occurs when one person abuses another with words or actions which cause emotional distress. In most cases, this is done repeatedly over a long period of time. The target of the abuse can be anyone; however, it is most often the person closest to the abuser.

In some cases, emotional abuse can lead to physical abuse as well. This is more common when the abuser has been drinking or taking drugs. Unfortunately, emotional abuse can also lead to suicide in some cases!

Unfortunately, there is no “cure” for IMS. There are, however, several steps which can be taken to relieve the symptoms of this disorder. First of all, if the abuser is a partner or spouse, it is important to seek out help from a domestic abuse shelter or hotline. If the abuser has been violent in any way, they should be reported to the authorities immediately.

If the abuser is not a partner or spouse, you can try to limit contact with them as much as possible. A person suffering from IMS can become violent if they believe their “rights” have been violated. On the other hand, it may be possible to have a rational discussion about the issue. Sometimes people really don’t realize that they are overreacting or being unreasonable.

If You Are The Victim Of Emotional Abuse

If you think you are suffering from emotional abuse by someone close to you, there are several things you can do. First of all, it is important not to blame yourself for the abuse. The abuser is responsible for their own actions; you are not to blame. You must also try to understand that the abuser is probably suffering from IMS or something similar.

Sometimes people are willing to seek help; in other cases, they are not. In these situations, it is best to seek help from friends or family members who can provide support. It can also be a good idea to seek out a domestic abuse shelter or hotline for assistance as well.

Why Do Some People Show Signs Of ITBS When Others Don’t?

Nobody knows for sure, but there are a few theories. The first of these is that some people are more prone to fits of rage or anger than others. Even if they have similar backgrounds and upbringings, some people seem to have more difficulty controlling their emotions than others.

It is also believed that some people may have a lower pain threshold than others. In other words, these people feel pain more easily than others. This may explain why some people can withstand very hot temperatures or dangerous situations without showing any signs of stress while others react instantly.

The final theory is that some people are just genetically predisposed to anger and irritability. This may explain why even perfectly reasonable people can sometimes lose their temper for no apparent reason.

Regardless of the reasons, it is important for all people to control their anger and irritability. When left unchecked, these feelings can lead to many problems in life such as depression, relationship issues, and even legal trouble. If you think that you or someone you know suffers from these issues, consider speaking to a professional about it.

Do You Show Any Signs Of Irritability?

Irritability can be caused by many things. Some of these include:

– Genetics

– Hormone levels

– Uncontrollable anger

– Poor diet

– Lack of sleep

– Medical issues (such as fatigue or thyroid problems)

Before we go any further, let’s take a look at some of the factors that can contribute to irritability:

Genetics: It is believed that some people may be more prone to fits of rage than others. If this is true, it would certainly explain why some people show signs of irritability from an early age while others seem to be perfectly reasonable, even under stress.

Hormones: Hormones also play a big part in our behavior. When we are happy, our bodies pump out “feel good” hormones. These chemicals make us behave in a friendly and even loving manner. On the other hand, when we are angry or afraid, our bodies produce stress hormones that affect our thinking and behavior in an adverse way. It is believed that people with low hormone levels are more irritable than others.

These people may benefit from hormonal therapy.

Medical Issues: Some medical issues such as fatigue and thyroid problems can also make a person more irritable than usual. It is possible that other undiagnosed conditions are also at work. If you have been suffering from irritability, it might be a good idea to see a doctor to rule out any hidden illnesses.

How To Deal With Irritability

Irritability is something that we all experience from time to time. This is perfectly normal, especially given the events happening in the world today. However, it is important that we learn to control this side of our nature if we wish to live happy and fruitful lives. Remember, you should never let anger get the better of you because it will only cloud your judgment and lead you to do things that you will later regret.

The first step to dealing with your irritability is identifying the cause.

Is your job really stressful, or are you having problems at home?

There might be many reasons for your behavior, so it is important that you explore all of your options before taking action.

After you have identified the cause of your irritability, you need to come up with a solution.

Is there something at work that is bothering you? Do you need to speak to a supervisor or Human Resources rep? Is there something at home causing you stress? Do you need to talk to your family members or your partner?

Sometimes, it is as simple as removing yourself from a toxic environment.

Once you have figured out the cause of your irritability and came up with a solution, it is time to take action. If you decide that you need to speak with a supervisor at work, then make an appointment as soon as possible. If you need to speak with your family, set aside some quality time when everyone can be there.

Lastly, follow through with what you have planned. Do not let irritability control you; instead control it by taking the proper steps to remedy the situation. In time, you will find that your bouts of irritability will become less and less frequent until they eventually cease altogether.

My Story

As a kid, I was very irritable all the time. I got mad at the drop of a pin. I would yell and scream at my mom and her boyfriend. My sister and I would get into physical fights on a regular basis. We even went to court-ordered therapy because our parents thought that we had issues with anger.

I can’t say that I blame them, I was really mean to everyone. Looking back, it’s no wonder why nobody liked me in high school. Even as I write this article, I still get angry at times. I suppose it’s a habit that is hard to break.

Surprisingly, I was never sent to anger management as a child (or if I was, they didn’t make a big deal about it). My mom tried her best to help me control my anger, but her idea of therapy was to smack me in the head or sending me to my room. The only thing those methods achieved was creating a kid with anger issues.

Looking back, I think most of my anger came from being neglected by my father and being bullied in school. My mom working three jobs didn’t help either. It’s no wonder why I turned out the way I did. It wasn’t until later in life that I learned how to control my temper.

To learn how to deal with my anger issues, I had to first identify what was causing them. For me, it wasn’t just one thing. It was a culmination of many things such as stress at work, problems with my car, or arguments with my girlfriend.

Once I had a better understanding of what was causing my anger to flare up, I started taking steps to solve the problem. For me, this meant knocking out my safety nets (a.k.a cutting off all forms of Uber and ordering a new car).
