I was wondering if I was alone in experiencing this: lately (for the past 6 months or so) whenever I get angry and try to hide it for whatever reason, my nose and lips begin to twitch and won't stop until I stop fighting it and let my face pull into a snarling expression.
From inside it feels like a wolf growling and baring its fangs.
Anyone else have something like that happen?
My spouse was very frightened the first time it happened and I tried to explain to them that I don't feel at all angry, it just feels like my face is angry. In fact when it happens, that's when I become completely calm.
I used to think I don't get angry at all but have slowly been getting into touch with that emotion over the past year in therapy.
Edited to add:
It's only happened at home before today, but earlier today I got some negative feedback from a coworker, and experienced a lot of anxiety because of it. And then slowly the anxiety morphed into anger and the expression crept in. It's a problem because I work in an open office and at least one coworker saw me sit at my desk with that expression. It passed about 20 minutes later and now the muscles in my face are sore. It's frightening and just so weird.
