Teenage uncontrolable anger

I''m trying to figure out what is wrong with my 17 year old daughter. She has these bouts of uncontrolable anger that makes her feel like a totally different person to me. When she gets this way she treats me like she does not know me and she does not care. She will curse,, go crazy slam doors and even break things without considering the consequences and then she will bust out in tears saying that she does not know what is happening to her she feels like she is going crazy. That is when she kind of goes back to being my little girl, she says that she is considering suicide because she doesnt know how to control these anger fits.

please help!!

Sounds like her brain chemistry is out of whack. Have you considered taking her to a doctor and explaining it just as you have here? She needs help. A chemical imbalance in the brain is hard on the family and even harder on the person affected by it.
