“Coccaro and Siever (2005) reported that researchers have identified a relationship between impulsive aggression and a complex neuro-chemical system called the serotonergic system. This finding suggests there is biological, neurological etiology for the symptom of impulsive aggression that is characteristic of Cluster B personality disorders.
Cluster B personality disorders are also characterized by emotional dys-regulation. Coccaro and Siever (2005) also reviewed brain imaging studies that found people with Cluster B personality disorders, had reductions in the volume of certain brain regions associated with the regulation of emotions. Once again, this finding offers compelling evidence for a biological explanation for the symptom of emotional dys-regulation.”
I wish H would seriously consider some low-level mediation that could help with his anger. My feelings are observational and I’m not that kind of doctor. Nonetheless, I’ve lived with him for several years. That’s worth something.
