Has anyone experienced a relationship with a loved one who, for no reason becomes very angry and is unable to communicate with. They swear, and say mean hurtful things. You try to calm them, by either holding them, and reassuring them, and they panic and get worse, and even violent with you physically. I constantly hear.....quit pushing my button. This individual seems like two different people....and the least little thing will set him off at any given time. We were recently on a trip, and he took off from a restaurant mad. I was searching for him for 1 hour. I finally found him, and tried to get him to get back into the car, so we could go back to the hotel....and he ignored me and continued to walk away.....I got out of the car and went to get him and calm him down, and he went balistic, hitting me and twisting my arm, and swearing at me. Some people witnessed this and called the police to get him to stop his angry ways. I was very upset to think that this happened. We will be seeking counseling, for I will not stand for violence. The next day he felt very bad about what happened. He does not understand why he gets this way. He is two different people. Anyone out there been through this? Thanks for the input.
