Default Mood Swings

I have mood swings which is very tough to live with.I mean one minute I could be laughing and happy then the next crying or yelling.I am presently on trilpetol I use to take them years ago it is so hard to find something that works. I found out I had these way back in 1986 when I was in the mental health unit.I was there for almost two weeks ,I had a very hard time being there with anxieties and all.I had a MRI which I swear I will never have again,I was strapped down especially underneath my chin and when u have very bad anxieties and agoraphobia it make matters worse.I have five different mental illness's ,anxieties, panic attacks, depression ,bipolar and mood swings.Sometimes I feel like a different person inside like I am so angry inside,I have thrown a couple of things but they weren't anything heavy like a pillow and my purse I threw once when I was in the bathroom. Sometimes I get so upset I feel like throwing something but I dont because what good would it do me?Having mood swings is no picnic.

Confused Re: Mood Swings

I often feel like throwing things as well. Unfortunately sometimes I do. I always tell myself I won't do it again. But, somehow, I always seem to...

I'm so sorry you're struggling, xmascarol Mood swings are very hard to deal with. Usually a combination of meds and therapy can help. Have you talked to your Pdoc about this? If your meds aren't working, perhaps you can ask for a change. Also if you often feel angry you could try to buy a punching bag. That way you can vent your anger. I'm so sorry you have to deal with this

Sometimes I just yell into my pillow it all depends on how I feel lately I have been yelling at my stupid hot water heater to shut up it runs about 13 minutes but after ten minutes it starts to drive me crazy.It has this humming sound I told them land lady and handiman about it but they look at me like I am crazy they claim it is suppose to be loud oh ya other people have complained about it too.So it isnt just about me.I have told my doctor numerous times about my yelling matter of fact that is the first thing he asks me about when he sees me if it has gone down any I said no so he increased my trileptol to four a day

There's a condition known as misophonia that might be worth exploring ... There's plenty of information here at PC, as well as on the web in general if you google the word ... I also agree with MickeyCheeky about finding outlets for the anger and rage - that way you don't end up snapping and causing harm to yourself or others.

Blow up punching clowns placed about the house, going to a batting cage and hitting baseballs or softballs, and/or going to a driving range and hitting golf balls are all great outlets for anger and rage, and most likely the mood swings will improve as the anger is properly vented ... I hope things start feeling better for you sooner than later because it is miserable feeling mood swings ... Especially if they are like a scary carnival ride you can't get off of.

Part of ,my problem is I cant leave my house agoraphobia really bad I do sit outside during the spring and summer and funny when I feel agitated I go outside and I feel better,looking at these four walls all day long isnt helping any. Sometimes I will just open the door stand there for a few minutes breathe in the fresh air it kind of relaxes me ,I cannot go out there now it is very cold,like in the 20's
