Why am I feeling so anxious all the time?

so, I am almost 25 and have survived a lifetime of physical/ verbal abuse. The physical stuff stopped at about 16/17 but than my father decided he would be a better person if instead of hitting us he just verbally abused us, a little over two years ago i married my husband and cut contact with my parents. My husband is the only man in my life to have never laid a hand on me ( i got it from my father, grandfather, and brother) anyway, I have always been somewhat of a moody person but i was never as bad as i have gotten recently. About a month and a half ago i started having non-epileptic seizures and i have noticed especially since these have started i have gotten moodier and i have noticed its gotten even worse than that this last week or so and my poor husband is the one who it is getting taken out on and i don't mean to and i don't want/like to. My husband is so patient and understanding but i have gotten very snippity with him especially tonight and even though it was like an hour ago i still feel very aggitated and anxious. I was just wondering if anyone could give me any insight on this. Do these seizures have something to do with it. right now i feel like i could strangle someone ( not that i ever would) and i don't like it. please please help

Hello and welcome to EmpowHer,
It would be impossible for us to confirm that the seizures are related the the abuse. However, it si absolutely necessary for your seizures to be treated medically as soon as possible.
It is entirely possible however for your moods and feelings of anger or even rage to stem from the hurt you experienced in the past.
So, I see the need for two separate treatments: therapy for the psychological trauma and also medical treatment for the seizures.
