Hey does anybody ever have a problem with mood swings? Besides like being on drugs..? I know girls tend to do it a lot, but what about the guys? I know it happens to me a lot, like tonight I'm just like really depressed, right after I got back from a good party with my youth group! I just BAM got depressed and started feeling worthless and unloved. It feels so terrible I hate it. I just wish there was somebody I could hold..a girl I mean. I feel really bummed out. Well, so what about all of you? Do you have a lot of mood swings? or just mood swings every now and then like me?

If it helps, I feel like that every month. One week before my period, bam, that feeling of being unloved and unworthy comes.

I guess it is a hormonal thing for me because I am usually very happy and cheery. I deal with it by eating lots of chocolate and junk food, having a good cry and reading. Reading lots of trashy novels.

Has anything happened recently to make you feel this way? Yea, I know what you mean about having someone to hold. for me, its to have someone to scream at. My poor bf always gets it. It's fine having mood swings but be careful, if you don't deal with it carefully it could develop into depression. I have seen friends who just get into these weird moods and wallow in them.

Gd luck and in the meantime, chocolate really helps. It really makes me happy.

Well, yeah I knew girls would, b/c it's that pms thing. but yeah..That would MAJORLY suck. I don't know. I have it off and on. It will come in REALLY fast though and then I just keep getting down. And Lin, I have had depression. From my mood swings. I was wrong a little too, it kind of lasted till this morning. I woke up, and then found out that I had school, and I didn't have my homework done. Not much of it at all. I just had all this rage build up in me and just DID NOT want to go to school. I skipped my first period working on a project for science that's due tomorrow. My band director wasn't very happy when I came and told him, he emailed the teacher of the room I was in. But like I was not in any mood to work or anything anyway. Second period, (spanish) I tried sleeping, but the teacher told me not too, and I was just invisioning all this bad stuff, of me beating up the people in the room if they said a word to me, even though they'd probably kick my butt. Finally I was like, okay enough of that, and started working on this poem. I'm really good at poetry, especially when I get in my different, dwelling moods. But I basically wrote down all my anger onto paper. By the end of the poem I was happy with what I wrote, but like if anybody tried talking to me while I wrote it I'd just Glare at them with this VERY P*SSED off look. But after my poem, I was talking again, not swearing. lol and then later I started working on a happy poem. I'll post my new poem in THE VILLAGE PEOPLE tonight probably. Or sometime soon. Just not right now, cause I have to work on the homework I never finished! that was due for today. I'll be typing something similar to this in the village people later too, since it's my online diary thingy.

i'm moody. i know i'm moody. i feel bad for boyfriend 'cause he's the one who has to put up with me when i'm moody (most people don't notice it). i feel like i take out my negativity on him sometimes. i don't mean to.

but what i really dislike about it is i go sour suddenly, he'll ask, "is it pms?" and i'll snap at him. it's not pms. i don't like my foul moods being blamed on pms.

Just something to think about, Josh -- not all women get mood swings. Or PMS. We really don't. I didn't have either one for many, many years, and only began getting premenstrual symptoms when I was put on medication to regulate a problem with my ovaries. I still rarely have mood swings, and they're usually more related to my circumstances and what's going on in my life than they are to what point I'm at in my menstrual cycle.

MANY women would find it pretty offensive to have a guy assume that they reason behind a mood swing was PMS, or even to assume that all women get PMS or mood swings! It'd be kind of like assuming that all guys get super stupid when they get erections, because all the blood is rushing away from their heads. It just doesn't work that way.

I have depression too, niceguy. Usually I'm pretty ok all day, then I have Math at the end of the day, and I feel so horrible all day after that. Then I feel bad for feeling so horrible. Then I feel all right, for no particular reason. Then I feel horrible again for something. I really hate it too.....I also wish it would go away. It's probably just a teenage thing tho; it'll go away in a few years. Hopefully.

I'm moody sometimes and I know it. I think everybody gets that way once in a while. It used to be worse for me, but then I started taking an herbal mood balancer, and that seemed to help alot. Moody-ness just kinda happens sometimes I think. That and those days when you just feel completely unbalanced all day. I guess it just makes life less boring!

Oh sorry ladies, I wasn't aware of that, I thought all girls got PMS'y Cause I know so many that do. Well I'm doing okay now. I know EXACTLY how you feel fuzz! That happens to me quite often. If I don't get the math, it starts to frustrate me and then it goes to my head. And for the rest of the day I'm really hyper and stressed and just not in a good mood. I have math 4th period now, it used to be 2nd period! It kind of stinks, but now I actually understand what I'm doing so I don't have as many problems and I'm actually getting my stuff done. Well I gotta finish getting ready for school. Talk to you later.

One little comment: psychotropic medications (like Prozac or Ritalin) can in many cases -- especially in adolescents -- make things worse, not better.

If you're on them, or have a doctor or therapist who is inclined to keep medicating them, I can't advise enough that you get a new doctor or therapist who gives a little more thought to the effects of these medications.

Oh man, Josh- Want to hear bad math story? Not only are my teacher and I in a kind of cold war- we haven't fought yet, but we will, I feel it- my class is ALL freshmen. With computer brains. And they're snotty. Plus I hate math. As you could tell.

yeah that would suck a big one. I've gotten so mad during math that I walked out, but it was b/c I was feeling REALLY weird, and I was just LOSING it completely. I was picturing jesus on the cross and stuff like that. I had just went to a christian concert the night before where I got really freaked, but I was reliving it in my head and so finally I just left the room. I've done it before too. Like last year. I didn't get a long with my group members at all, they were like you don't have a life and all this crap. Really ticked me off.well I gotta go!

Oh yay, mood swings. I have them a lot. My predictable mood swings occur about a week before my period (at least I know they're coming). I will be fine, then suddenly, the teeniest thing will make me want to scream. And I always cry the day I get my period, about anything too, usually silly things.

I get non-hormonal related mood swings too. Right now I've been feeling sort of down. I know I'm done with college until January, so the sudden shift in schedule....being bored, working more, not being able to see my boyfriend everyday, pulls me down. My mood swings aren't all that bad anymore, I've learned to control them, and if I'm feeling angry or sad I make myself some tea and stick by myself until I'm feeling better. Oh and Lin is right, chocolate does help.....warms the heart.

I know what you mean... of course, I am a girl... but I have HORRIBLE mood swings all the time... I will be happy one day, and then someone will say something little that is upsetting.. and I just lose it! Sometimes I feel so pretty and loved, then the next minute, I am looking at my life and realizing what a loser I am... it's a horrible feeling, but I just can't seem to get out of this dark place that I am in.
