what is wrong with me?? - November 26th 2009, 01:25 AM

Lately, really trivial things have either irritated me to the point where I blow up, or make me so sad, I feel like breaking down in tears.

For example, yesterday, I cried because the food I got from Wendy's was cold. I get snappy with my mom when she asks me questions that aren't meant to provoke a fight at all.

I haven't slept well lately. I wake up at about the same time every night, and find it difficult to stay asleep.

My mood fluctuates from being happy to being about to cry. I really have no idea what is wrong with me.

(It's not PMS).

Well, I am not sure I am qualified to diagnose any mental disorder, but I have personally gone through some extreme lows.

From what I can gather, your first problem is your sleep. Lack of sleep can lead to all sorts of unexplainable mood swings. Try doing a bit of exercise in the late afternoon ... it does not have to be for long, but just enough to exert yourself. Also avoid any caffeine intake in the evening.

Do you suffer any physical symptoms? Like shaky or dizzy spells? These usually indicate a sugar imbalance, which can also cause your mood to plummet.

I am not going to go into any clinical problems, as that is best left up to a qualified therapist.

One last thing, you could try supplementing your diet with Omega-3. You should be able to get this from any health shop. This is a natural product which has been known to improve peoples moods.

I hope this has been of some assistance, if you need some more advice, or just someone to unload on, let me know .... stress can also lead to severe moods.
