What would you call this?

I have these "episodes" or "meltdowns" when something bothers me. Like when I get frustrated when I really don't like something or I get really mad, I start screaming and cussing and tensing my muscles so hard that I strain them sometimes. It's uncontrollable and then afterwards I cry.. It's like mentally, im not in reality anymore. My mind is completely some where else.. Its very hard for me to calm down. For example: in math class, if I don't understand something. I start to tense up super hard and start kicking my desk and have to hold in cussing and so much anger. My old therapist said it was OCD, but others that have seen my meltdowns, say other wise. Any ideas what causes it or what it is? A syndrom, a dissorder? Sorry, im not crazy, im still a normal person. lol /:

Speak to your school counsellor, the behaviour you are describing can't be good for your learning. Autism is a mighty broad spectrum - in fact almost everybody exhibits autistic behaviour at some time or another - but you really should seek a professional's opinion.

autism is basically a trade off. autistic people tend to have trouble with social skills, but are very intelligent when it comes to book smarts.

I'm autistic and have never done this. All I do is get mildly confused.

I get confused enough to get angry and strong anger causes my muscles to tighten and spasm I do exactly what he is asking about

I was thinking something along the lines of having to do with your emotions and not controlling them.. such as: borderline personality disorder, or passive aggressive, ect.. either way, you should probably attend an anger management class, which will help teach you skills to not get angry easily and skills on how to act when you do get mad.

Are you going thru puberty? Are you getting 8+ hours of sleep each night. Sleep deprivation can cause a lot of emotional problems. Also what is your diet like? Lots of sugars and salts and caffeine ?

it sounds like tourettes syndrome. here is a link to the tourettes syndrome wiki page. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tourette_syndrome
please let me know if this sounds like what you are experiencing
don't be discouraged if it does turn out to be this. if its any consolation, i have severe ADHD and have also been suspected of bipolar disorder. you are not alone. there are other people who struggle with disorders and syndromes. mine drove me to near suicide. i just hope the same thing never happens to anyone else. in fact, here is my email. just in case you need a friend who you can talk to and truly knows how your feeling.

Really?!?!? I'm going through the same thing!!!!!!!!! Like the EXACT same thing!!!!!! I usually use distractions to distract me like I read a book and makes me happy... Watch YouTube videos and do stupid things and talk to my best friend and text her to cheer me up and she makes me feel better and yea... When I'm really upset and I'm so freaking mad and I'm cussing and then I start crying later because I can't hold it I cry at night instead to let it out so I don't feel the stress and then when I'm in a situation where I feel so mad and I want to throw things I think about cotton candy and a raccoon stealing twirlers and stupid things... It may sound like nonsense but it helps... Not completely but it helps.... It's just that there are a lot of things in life that may make you that way... My father has attention defect that I inherited and my grandmother is bipolar positive.... I feel so sorry for you... But I don't know if you believe in god but can I make a suggestion...? Could you kindly read the book 'the magic' by Rhonda Byrnes? This book really changed my life and I hope it will change yours like it did to millions of people... I'm sorry if this makes you angry but I just want to let you know you are not alone ;)

Lol I'm thinking it may be autism because I've remembered me doing this sometimes too and I'm autistic. I can talk normal and not repeat words after another basically if anyone ever met me they'd think I'm a normal guy the only thing my autism does is my mind functions way differently than other peoples I'm trying to control it to. I love 5FDP by the way I have a way of the fist t shirt.

The funny thing was I took a trip to Dallas, Texas then when I came back home a day later I look on Facebook and they played in Dallas the day before I left Dallas I was pi$$ed when I read that Twiztid recently played in my hometown on Monday and I was pi$$ed because of the freaking age limits you had to be 18 to see them I was really pi$$ed about that.

I wanted to go see SlipKnoT last year in Houston, Texas for the Mayhem festival along with Slayer and Anthrax and my cousins mom said she would take me, my best friend and my cousin to go see them and my best friend stayed the night at my house before the concert and we made a banner that said "Maggots 4 Life" and in the back for the last minute silence for Paul Gray we wrote "Paul Gray 1972 - 2010 Rest In Peace and keep rocking" with his mask drawn on the side and his number on top and when me and my friend got ready for it my cousin already left and they completely forgot about us we were incredibly pi$$ed off that day all we did was listen to SlipKnoT all day and I just went and kick boxed to take my stress out.
