I have never in my life swung so quickly between moods, so frequently. A graph of my mood over the last four days would have about five different extrema.

It is absolutely exhausting, for sure, and probably not healthy, either.

heh, i'm pretty sure talking about yourself in a mathmatical manner says something, too . . .

it could be you're a math nerd, and the fact you can still relate life back to math bodes well, or maybe the fact you've reduced to talking about if mathmatically means you're at a loss for words?

Ok, seriously, though, I hope things level out for you. Preferably on the 'up' side. :)

I've been the same for the last month or so. One thing, I've found, is actually to not allow myself to become too happy or excited, but rather to attempt to remain calm and, in this way, a little more constant.

Hope you stabilize soon.

yeah, when I was having really low moods I would force myself to get happy to get out of it - and it worked, but I swung too far and became giddy, then just plunged back down again. It's really trippy, I know how you feel.

If you say so.
Horomones suck, don't they. Just listen to hindu mantras. Always works for me. ^_^

Lol, spenc, that was the perfect response to my silliness. I hope you just rolled your eyes, and weren't offended or anything. My attempts at humor are consistently lame like that. :)

Offended? Nah. Made me smile.

Catherine-- swinging is exactly what I've been doing, only the trigger hasn't been anything forced, but, often, emotional release of some sort. Writing angrily in my journal often releases the spring, which then rapidly swings back... it's just weird. I can't trust my own emotions anymore, which is a bizarre state to be in.

OOOOH EMO SENTENCE.

I play starcraft to vent. There's nothing like sending in a couple of platoons of firebats to burn up some zerg, and then a dropping a nuke to clean up the rest to unwind.

Hah, I find playing AoE does that for me . . . on the other hand, my dad can't take the pressure. He can be perfectly fine, and then he'll play a game for a while, and end up nervous, mad, etc. It would be funny how much playing a computer game affected him, if it wasn't for the fact that he's a bear to be around afterward. =P

Journaling is great. Not only does it calm you down and let you "get it all out," afterwards you can look it over and try to find patterns or causes for your mood swings. Am I write?? Anyway... ahem... yes, keep on blogging, journaling, and comic-making.

You play starcraft too? We should game sometime! Nothing like storming their mining then pulling off a swift pull out and leaving them to try and recover :)
