  • Shopping ALWAYS helps me, but it isn't realistic most of the time. Taking a walk, playing with my pets, watch a favorite sitcom, call my girlfriends.......and if none of that works.........I'M GOING TO THE BAR TONITE! lOLOL

  • Drink lots of water, eat a healthy meal (I eat salmon when I feel out of sorts and helps tremendously), and do something just for YOU!

  • For a headache, I usually take 800mg of Ibuprofen. That *usually* kicks it.

    Most of the time, when I'm in a bad mood, its because I'm too damn hungry and/or tired. Like right now. So, I should probably get my rump off CM and go take a nap since Daddy took his little girl with him to go run around town, and I'm here by myself till at least 3.

    (It was funny too. Daddy asked her "do you want to stay with Mommy?" as I asked "Do you want to go bye bye with Daddy?" She said "YES" and put on her shoes, indicating who she was saying yes to, LOL.)

  • I journal. I jot down all the things that are bugging me. Once I do that I tend to ease up. I know how you feel though. I get in those moods a lot too and not sure how to get out of it no matter how much I'd like to! You just have to take some time for yourself and let it pass. Do something that makes you happy and hopefully you'll snap out of it!! Good luck!
