Mood pattern?

Hi guy's :-)

Does anyone else go through strange mood patterns? And I mean hourly? Throughout the day I go from quite happy/content then the next minute im very sad then I go happy and on and on and on..... This is hourly??? So I Understand depression etc it's not like bipolar so I dont get erratic with it. It's strange isn't it? I go from feeling such love to feeling so sad within minutes. Am I going nutts?

Thanks in advance to all of you x x

  • If you are then so am I, its all ups and downs. I find I can level it out by drawing or some other art based hobby. Sometimes just zone out with music. xx

  • I'm either saying sorry.... Or I love you so much HA

    I need to find middle mood music :-)

    Thanks for the reply Lou x hope your ok? Nearly the dreaded bed time x

  • I'm doing ok, my grandchildren are staying for several weeks, 7 year old Grandson has just waltzed into the living room wearing a gold paper crown announced he is king of the house and wants chocolate I gave him The Look and off he went to bed cant stop chuckling now. xx

  • Hahahahahahaha oh that made me laugh.... My little girl is 7 in two week's there so funny!

  • Hello love

    Yes! I can most definitely relate to that. I couldn't have explained it better than you have.

    Trying to live with this horrid illness is obviously playing havoc with our heads :)

    Hugs Lu xx

  • Hey lu :-)

    Massive hugs x

  • Having a really stressful painful time. But hey. What's new???

    Massive hugs to you too my friend


  • Yes. I get the same feelings or moods, it's weird one moment you can feel quite serene and contented then it can change just like that, I can so relate to you saying sorry then I love you, that's so me. 😍😰. You're not alone in feeling like this for sure πŸ˜„

  • It's like an angel and devil in your head pulling for your attention!

    Glad I'm not alone or going crazy... :-)

    I'm contemplating asking for something to help my moods but it's more med's ect ect x x hope your ok my lovely :-) x

  • I do find if m feeling down doing my crocheting makes me feel better, makes me concentrate on the moment I suppose, do you have any hobbies to take your mind off things.?

  • I like reading and watching scary films. My arm's and hands hurt alot so doing things that involve moving my hands. X

  • hi their yes your not on your own its not a good feeling when the world is you paradise then next its seams like your emery the only thing i do is try and think of something that has happened in you life and fix your mind if you can on that and any other nice things take care speak to you again and welcome to this site i'm bigalan its nice to meet you

  • Hello :-) bigalan

    Yes yes yes that's exactly right! I look at my family pictures on my wall and try and get out of my mood.... X

  • hi keeleybee i'm so glad that i have help you it looks like you have a beautiful daughter there with you and by looking at something that always makes you smile then go for it kind regards bigalan x

  • I go through that too. I know what you mean not bipolar but wierd all the same. I never know what mood I am going to be in. I have noticed also concentration is a big help. If I concentrate on something my moods stabilize somewhat.

  • No your not nuts or bipolar, it's perfectly normal as this condition has a lot to answer for. I find it's very hard to cope with all the mixed emotions it can create, so go with it and here's hoping that talking helps.

    Don't worry be happy πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜€πŸ˜…πŸ˜β˜ΊοΈπŸ˜ŽπŸ˜

  • I am so genuinely sorry to read that and I sincerely hope that you can find some resolution and relief to this issue. I must admit that on occasion that I have felt that way but it is not a regular thing for me.

    I want to genuinely and sincerely wish you all the best of luck.

    All my hopes and dreams for you

  • Hi there.

    Yes I know the feeling. I feel like my moods are like a ping pong ball 😁 if that makes sense. It's a real pain. I'm sure my 8 yr old thinks I'm crazy 😁.

    As a Buddhist I try and chant which helps or I colour in my anti stress books. That can be nice for a few minutes until my bloody hands starts killing me.

    Gentle hugs to every one. X

  • I know exactly what you mean. I was having the exact conversation with my partner the other day. I'm happy one minute and then completely change n feel a bit low my mood can change several times a day. My partner is a bit of joker and things that I would have laughed at a year ago I take to heart now it's strange isn't it. Gentle hugs hope you are feeling better :)

  • Morning Shelley, yes it's very strange..... I went from telly the hubby I think I'm depressed to laughing my head off and planning a day trip and meals out? He must think I'm bonkers lol x x

    he did say it's like walking on egg shells around me :( opps

  • That's why my children say to me, although not quite in those words 😊 xxx

  • Morning, yeah that's what my partner says too, he says he dosnt even know when it's safe to talk to me, horrible really. I was so bad on Friday up n down like a yo yo

    that he took for a lovely day out he's really understanding considering what he has to put up with bless him.

  • Bless him, that's good :-)

    think all we need is to be understood hey x

  • Looks like you've really hit on something here hun.

    It never occurred to me it was Fibro.

    Thank you. It's made me feel a bit better in a strange way ☺️

    Massive hugs Lu xx

  • Me to :-)

    It's hard to ask if other's feel like this but this is the best place to ask. Wish we all lived in the same place so we could all just meet up for a cuppa x x

  • Know exactly what you mean. It's really lovely to have a place where we can ask questions or for advice without being judged.

    How nice would it be to meet up for a chat? We'd never get passed the "how are you" bit though πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ xx

  • It am always like that but never put it down to fibromayia, been real stressed with this pip but I got an email from a friend the other day and now Evan still so stressed I think just go with the flowi am vary luck.

    Her son went on holiday only young died in bed, and she says they have not looked after his body so she can't even say good bye to him. So ever one just spare I thought and prayer for my friend so sad.

    It does put thing into prospective.

    God bless my friend and her family.

    Big hugs xxx

  • Omg!!!! That's so awful and so sad that poor family :-( yes it put things into perspective doesn't it.

    Hugs x

  • Yes it really does and my oun son had just gone airport he is x royal marine now protecting big oil tanks.

    I just had to ring him to just remind him how much I love him.

  • Awwww bless you.

    :-) x

  • It really does my prays r with them. Dosnt matter how bad things are there is always someone else worst off :)

  • Hi ☺ yes I have this too, I try to not show it otherwise my poor kids would be so confused but sometimes it's unavoidable when I get into the dark moods. Since I have been in pain with Fibromyalgia I have not been able to excercise (I used to run a lot) and I think that used to really help me, I also weigh three stone more than I did and that's made my depression worse! Vicious circle πŸ˜• xxx

  • Me to :-( my niece who is 3 asked if I as having a baby.... I would to exercise more. I used to walk 5 miles every day and be on the go all the time....sigh x

  • I have to :-( it sucks and your right doesn't help with the depression x

  • Been thinking about this post a lot and I think it is definitely related to fybro , I think it's because fybro plays with our minds, one day you feel ok and you think I'm fine it's all under control, the next day you feel like a truck has hit you what is wrong with me I was fine yesterday and you start to question your sanity, how can it change so much from one day to the other? I don't know of any other disease that is like this and that's the problem we have to live with this uncertainty all the time and this is what makes us so moody.

    I was having a good day today felt great this morning even managed to help my OH he is painting our lounge out and I felt so guilty just watching him, so I couldn't resist doing my bit by painting the skirting boards, it lasted all of about 15 mins but had I give it up and been soaking in an Epsom bath for the last half hour, so now I feel down 'cos I can't do what I want to do, here we go again, up and down 😞

  • Iv done a bit of glossing to :-) but now I'm sitting as my body is screaming at me! So I understand what you mean. Will be on complete rest now. Oh my mind wants me to go out shopping all day get ready and go out, fibro is cruel! But yes how can we be fine and then that bus driver sees us smile and BANG he has drove over us again!

    We have to keep going though.... This pain and lifeless body is the norm now.

    x x

  • Yes keep going, what's the alternative? Keep smiling, and watch out for trucks and buses. Lol 😳

  • Hi, My moods are just as you have described. I have had fibromyalgia for about ten years and rebuilding your life is tough especially when your moods are all over the place. I have learned to cope with all the physical symptoms and have accepted my limitations but the mental ones are hard to deal with. You have my empathy. xrandomtulip

  • I get what you mean it's like you can't get out of your own head... I said previously fibro is cruel! It's almost like losing yourself, reminding yourself that you should feel joy. Iv said to my friend at work 'I look fine, I look happy, inside I'm screaming and crying'

    Hope you are doing ok today x x

  • I am new to communicating like this, feels odd but fibro., is so limiting I recognize that I need to make another baby step. So this is my step, getting the hang of it is tricky when brain is like treacle. Sometimes I feel positively thick. Foggy brain an issue at mo. But hope I will conquer it. Do you call this blogging or what? Hope all is well. xxx

  • I call it my new Facebook HA not that I'm on facebook but I'm always on here and would rather be reading people's posts than what a person I used to no is having for dinner :-) sorry I dont like Facebook....

  • Hi, I suppose it depends with the times you take your medicatiob.

    I know it affects me just coming up to the time to take it, can change your mood. Jim x

  • That's true I get mardy when I feel the pain building up..... Like now :-( x

  • When my pain starts build I find that I am gritting my teeth and as soon as I recognize it make my self relax. I can feel in my body that the seasons are changing as soon as autumn is around the corner aching starts to increase. Another friend who has fibro., says she experiences the same. Hope all is wellish..xx

  • Hi :-)

    Iv over done it today I just went to asda and now my arm's are on fire.

    Yeah isn't it strange how weather effects us. I'm always really bad come Jan.

    Let's hope for sunshine :-) x

  • Keeley.....been like that my whole life. Everything thinks I am bipolar because my moods change so much. I call myself empathic....that means I feel whatever or whoever is around me. My surroundings affect me. Their pain, their joy. It is very upsetting sometimes. I can watch a really intense movie,sad or something and walk away with all that emotion in me still.

    It can also be called highly sensitive. Elaine Aron wrote many books on this, and is just recently produced a movie on it trying to share with the world this trait. She is from California. Saved me reading these books. We have 15 different feelers out of our brain when the rest of the world has 3...This is sort of how to explain it. We feel, hear, see, smell, taste so much more than the average person.

    I hope you can find some peace with this personality trait. It is who you are. Not something to be ashamed of, afraid of, or ostracized with a deviant label. It has taken me a long time to embrace who I am, and not be afraid someone is going to put me in a loony bin on medication.

  • How interesting! Iv never heard of this before.... My husband says I have a noise like a sniffer dog.

    I go through so many emotions in such a short space of time.

    Thanks for sharing this with me x

  • Hi there! two years ago I bought a series of CD's Mindfulness for Depression and Mindfulness for pain relief from amazon. Made a big difference, would recommend these. Helped me to focus on the moment and when I recognize that I am feeling more pain whether physical for mental or emotional I do a mental scan of myself and take a deep breath. On the other hand when things get to much I'll take a couple of paracetamol and a small glass of wine and within half an hour everything eases. Of course do not do this regularly. It sounds irresponsible but at times I don't care. xxxx

  • I get quite bad mood swings 1 minute am fine next am not

  • Think it all part of the parcel :-(I go through so many emotions all in own day.... X
