My Mood: It's been a while

62 hugs

Default It's been a while

It's been a while since I have been on the forums. For a while, I was doing okay. For a while, being on the forums became triggering. But, as I sit in my work cubicle feeling bored with nothing to do but think, I can dwell on my thoughts and feel my feelings. Well, I guess I was already feeling mny feelings, which brought me back to the forums anyway.



At any rate, I have been feeling really down lately . . . and really irritable. I went to the NAMI support group I normally attend and received some thoughts on how to manage the irritability. But the hardest situation is dealing with it when I talk to my Mom. Almost everything I say is tainted with the irritability and comes out really critical. I just don't know how to keeping the sharp notes out of my tone when I speak to her. She doesn't deserve it, and aside from trying to make myself pause a beat before I say anything, I am unsure what to do.

I wish I had an easy answer. Did you suffer from any abuse dynamics with your mom? Has the relationship always been touchy or is this something new?

No, nothing like that. I've always been kind of short with family members when I feel like they are prying or I don't want to share my personal stuff, but I am just short with her all the time. When I feel depressed or anxious I feel the irritability all the time.
