Her husband has uncontrolled blog rage as well as controlled road rage
Dear Dr. Jim
Please, Dr. Jim, I need help FAST!
My husband has uncontrollable rage when he gets on his computer and uses the Internet with his (sic) glob.
He is prone to violent 'madness,' the doctor and I made him stop driving because he had the worst case of road rage ever. It is a wonder no one got killed then.
I am open to any suggestions.

Dear H. W.
I feel really sorry for your predicament, but more sorrowfully yet for your dear hubby. Having rage is like being an alcholic or having cancer, one can control it but it can never be cured.
He is working with BLOGS, not GLOBS. Blogs are mainly a social network of online friends, some are political (or other favorite cause like religion, etc) in nature. Actually Ask Dr. Jim (blog) is a blog.
Let's get to it.
First, is he ever violent towards you? You don't seem worried but if it happens leave immediately until you two get professional help.
Second, I am a firm believer that there is such a thing as BLOG RAGE. This is a relatively new phenomenon, mainly because blogs are so new.
Third, you should consult a professional again, probably the one he trusts who worked with you both in the road rage situation.
Fourth, I believe you and the doctor may have to take away the keys to his computer (literally there aren't keys, so cut the plug off) of his computer away from him like you did the car.
Fifth, please read some online items about the newest of rages, blog rage (click here). I have found about 6,780 articles for you and the other readers. [For some articles about controlling road rage, click here.]
Please get action very soon before someone does get hurt.
p.s. H. W, you are invited to keep on reading stuff on your computer, it is a wonderful learning tool. Perhaps this drastic action I suggested may not be necessary or at least not be permanent. Leave that to the doctor/professional.
Writing the blog(s) helps him keep his mind going, just pray he gets it going in the right direction. Dr. Jim
So, keep on keep'n on, and till then,
