So angry I could rip husband's ears off says lady in La La Land
Dear Dr. Jim
Sometimes I get so angry with my husband that I just want to rip his ears off?
Is this normal, or should I be worrying about something?
I hope you can help me here,
Donna in La La Land

Well, Donna, you really hit a land mine here! Feelings like this when acted out can be disastrous. Do you know that is precisely what Jack the Ripper did with his victims before doing worse things to them (like killing them)?
Jack the Ripper would send the ears of his victims to the police after the commission of the crime. While the victim was bleeding profusely he would consummate his wrath, ultimately killing a poor innocent victim. Read this for a little more historical insight.
This is all the worse because your potential victim is the object of your wrath, your husband. And as they say, kill the first, the second is easier, and on and on.
What to do? Seek professional advice from your pastor. If you don't have one, look in the yellow pages under churches. Probably these will not help you as much as needed, but steer you to a competent professional who can.
Ordinarily I would suggest a divorce for you, but in your case I think you just might seek him out for ear ripping regardless of marital status.
So long, Donna, please don't become Donna the Ripper. I hope I have helped.
So, keep on keep'n on, and till then,
