Default Intermittent explosive disorder

How do you deal with this. It is apart of having bipolar and I'm starting to think of myself as a dangerous person. I have bipolar and I been certain I had this for years what do I need to do to make my life better

You ask some really good questions. I suffer from the same, more as a result of PSTD though. Seth makes a really good comment, and I'd start there.
For me, it's a combination of therapy; usqually at least once a week and medication. I know nobody wants tobe on meds, and getting the right ones and dose etc is a pain in the ass, but they help
I try to identify triggers for my behavior, and have a plan on what to do when I encounter them.
Good luck, let us know how your doing ok?

Well I'm sorry to hear that, I mean im sure it's really hard, I know.
May I ask why no therapy or counseling?
On the meds, there are different meds, people react to different meds differently
Sort of like our taste for food, it works for us or not
Violent behavior is part of it, I try to identify the triggers, make friends and family aware of them, and make a plan for when you encounter them
A counselor can help with that

I never could open up to people sober that's why a therapist is pointless and I don't want to be too druged up and for me I will need a lot I kinda just stick to weed and binge drink in moderation. I know it's bad but it's the ONLY way I open up to people

I just started boxing again and that kinda helps

Well, I'm not guna judge you on that, had my battles as well
What I can say I will say is that when your ready to open up to someone, it'll come naturally, and be easier than you think it is right now
If you are closed to counselors, then it's just guna be longer till that happens
In the mean time, your self medicating will have to do, and you have your solution for now anyways
Wana read a good book? It's called "Reality Boy"
It's a true story, about anger and rage, someone in another forum recommended it to me, he thought id be able to identify with the author.
He was right, if interested, and can't find it let me know I'll get the author and picture of the cover for you

I fear myself and that's the only thing I'm afraid of its that bad. I recently found a kid who robbed me and I fear I might really hurt him and I have been trying so hard I pass by him every day in the hall and im afraid he might get really fucked up

maybe you need some new medicine and some counseling. not trying to be mean. to get new medicine, you need to see someone though, a professional

a counselor may be bale to, a psychologist to psychiatrist would for sure. they probably will call it something else, but they would also be better trained to prescribe you proper medication
