My dad is actually a good person, but he has high blood pressure. He gets mad at the simplest things and hurts my mom and I verbally, and physically towards my mom. Even though I know it is because of his health condition, some of his words are still intolerable. What should I do?

Answer

Your mother should discuss the issue with her doctor and ask for ideas about any links between medication and behaviour. If his anger can be controlled by more (or less) meds, your mother needs to drive the change.
