It could be turrets, there’s a rage subset. I think my daughter has it. I’m still trying to find an effective way to handle it and teach her to control her temper. I know some people, myself included are just wired to get angry faster than we can think about it. Still, that’s not a viable reason in court, with the police, or employers when you act out of anger or rage and get yourself into trouble. We all have to learn to manage out emotions, even if that means taking a medication. Beta blockers help with rage and so does zoloft.
Sorry I could be more helpful, but know you are not the only one going through this.
