Intermittant Explosive Disorder - Breathing Space Blog
Road rage in the U.S. may be more common than previously suspected and may extend beyond the road as well. By some estimates almost 16 million Americans are afflicted with a disorder that results in them erupting into screaming and possibly violent outbursts, sometimes at the slightest provocation.
Intermittent Explosive Disorder is regarded as a “pattern of explosive outbursts in response to everyday frustrations.” Michael McClusky, Ph.D. in the New Scientist, says that people with this disorder often say “that their temper goes from 0 to 100." Such outbursts can lead to injury to other people and property, revenge, and domestic abuse.
