    Oh yes - those have been a life saver for me over the last few years.
    I have mine sort of under control now - before that it was regular trips to the hospital for some nice morphine....
    Now on beta blockers which have also helped - [ plus knocking my blood pressure down quite a bit ]

    !?! - I know schools are getting rough but surely they're better than working in a prison! Is he changing career totally to become a guard, or is staying in IT - making sure the countries murders and rapists have fully functioning 50mbps broadband piped to their cells?

    Maybe the prisoners would be better behaved? Management might not turn round and say you cant punish someone for damaging equipment......

    Seriously though i'm sure in prisons they have some sort of network, including CCTV, and he never actually said he was working in a prison, just for the prison service.....

    I've taken up golf which lets my anger out perfectly. I swear, curse and have on occasion kicked my trolley. (Bearing in mind that if I took up kick boxing at my age I would probably not survive the first session)


    The trouble is my anger just isn't work related it's everything - total female Victor Meldrew and proud of it

    He has a lot of personal reasons to why he is changing jobs which I can't go into. I was shocked when I found out he was leaving IT to work in a prison.

    That's why I love kayaking and climbing (although I do both badly). It's just a complete escape, allowing me to forget everything else.

    Probably not enough of either for you to want it. Nah its 5 weeks and a pittance for me, but you could command a decent pay out of them.

    I think any form of physical activity is great for unwinding... even just a session at the gym or a run around the block a few times...

    I've got problems with my neck, so get regular migraines/headaches... too much slouching and bad posture... unfortunately working in schools isn't the most ergonomically correct environment, so its not getting much better quickly... doing stretches and stuff regularly which seems to be helping...

    no I do my best not to hit him... I once punched him in the kidneys and he got really mad.

    I just laughed!!

    Just got in touch with a kickboxing instructor now. Might be going to some classes! Excitement.
