Mood Swings

Most of us have different moods in our daily life, sometimes we are happy sometimes sad,  some days we have high energy and other days we have low energy. Mood swing is a sudden or swift change in the mood of an individual.  Some persons who are more optimistic have these types of mood swings in their normal course of routine to overcome problems and issues.
Sometimes mood changes interfere with our ability to manage our daily duties/routing in our life that’s when we need to take professional help. For e.g. our relationships get affected due to moodiness, losing touch with reality.
Moods are thought to result from interplay of chemicals in the brain; the cause of mood swings is not known, but they may be related to imbalances in these chemicals.  Mood swings can occur as a symptom of
psychiatric disorders, such as bipolar disorder or borderline personality disorder, or they may result from a medical condition that directly affects the central nervous system, such as dementia, brain tumors, meningitis, and stroke. Mood swings can also result from conditions that deprive the brain of nutrients and oxygen, such as lung and cardiovascular diseases. Substance abuse, medication side effects, and hormonal changes are other potential causes of mood swings. Academic, employment, financial, legal and relationship problems may result from mood swings.

  1. I have never been prone to mood swings and have a difficult time being around those that do. I never understood why people allow their circumstances control their mood when their mood should affect their circumstances!
