Anger issues / disorders help…?

Sarah Asked: Anger issues / disorders help…?

I'm 16 and I have an insane temper or something. Every time something doesn't go my way, I get really upset and just want to punch myself. I'm not spoiled or anything; it's not like that. It's just that I have to get my way or I'm automatically upset. But I'm not that upset about it. For example: today I wanted my puppy to sleep in my room and my mother knew that, but she let my little brother take the puppy into his room. When I pointed out that I wanted the puppy, she said that they were already settled in and I couldn't have her, but I could have her tomorrow night. That just made me so mad / upset. I went into my room and wanted to burn myself with my straightener and punch a wall! I started to cry seriously. But in my head I knew it wasn't that big of a deal. I knew I shouldn't be so upset, but I was. And this is a regular occurrence to me. My mom or dad or brothers say one little thing wrong and I flip. I just can't handle it. I get so angry that I have actually punched a wall before and I have to take deep breaths for five minutes to calm down. Sometimes I get so upset that I pull my hair, scratch myself with my nails really hard, hit myself in the face, etc. I know this sounds like I'm insane or something, but I'm not. I have friends and I go to school and I live a normal life except for these outbursts. What could be wrong with me? Is there something wrong with me or am I just some dramatic teenager? Should I be getting help? I haven't told my mom about it (I'm sure she knows though), so if anyone has suggestions on how to tell my parents about it I'd appreciate it. Please help!
