Heart attack survivor

I am 42 and i survived a STEMI  on June 29 of 2016 .  My cholestrol was within normal limits, my blood pressure was borderline high, and im healthy and stay active, exercised daily.    Now I am in my cardiac rehab and the therapists say everything is looking great .  Im wanting to progress much faster but they are holding me back so that i dont push too hard, which is good.  My issues that im dealing with now is the irritability, anxiety, "why me questions", and lashing out at my family over the silliest things.  I want to cope with my irritability and anxiety better.  Any suggestions?
