  • Good question. I'm in a crap mood today and seems no matter how I say something, I end up pissing someone off. I'm sick and supposed to go get x rays and blood work done today, but I don't want to take the 2 yr old and sit in the damn hospital for 4 hrs. I should just go back to damn bed, maybe in an hr or 2 the LO will let me.

  • Sorry for the rant. Usually I read the Bible, it lifts my spirits, problem is I can't seem to find mine. I don't know where I could of put it.

  • By recognizing my personal responsibility in the issue...

    If it is someone else's foul mood, I free them to have it --it's their suffering, not mine, far be it for me to interfere with their fun...

    If it's my foul mood, I keep it to myself --no one else needs to know I'm having a hormone, or a snit, and I've never had a single relationship improved by venting it...

    I have found, though, that my foul moods are always about how I think the world should be different from how it is --usually with a rather petty and immature demand that the world make it so without my action. Once I figure that out, I usually just laugh and move on...

  • I have found that a lot of excercize....walking, going outside, lifting weights, doing vigorous,difficult household tasks, etc. will lift my mood. Physical exercise makes your blood circulate and your heart rate rises, which brings more oxygen to your brain and causes your mood to improve. A lot of water helps too. People who are dehydrated feel a little off and depressed.
