Mood "cycles"?

Recommended Posts

GregoryReboot

Hello All.

 

Anyone have experience with certain times of day being "good" or "bad" in terms of mood/symptoms? My mornings are generally the worst in terms of symptoms and "crazy" thinking and then by late afternoon (many days) I feel almost "normal" - as in like my old self! In the evenings I can FEEL emotions and THINK thoughts that seem like a "reasonable person"! I LOVE IT! It gives me great hope and of course relief. 

 

SO, here is my question. Does anyone else experience this? If so, has anyone found a way to "extend" that time/mood into the not so good ones? In my case, I know I have high cortisol at night which causes sleep quality issues and early restless wakes. I am working on that with some supplements which are helping albeit a bit slower than I'd like ;-). Anyone else discover any variables that mattered?

 

Would love to hear others experiences and/or tips.

 

Thank you! I love this community!

Oh, here is a graph of cortisol levels if anyone is interested...

GregoryReboot - I can relate exactly to what you descibed. I’ve been on here since June (I think) and just stumbled onto your post. I tell my family that I mood swing all throughout the day, but by evening, I feel almost normal, at times. This isn’t always the case, but morenoften than not.  

 

I was thinking estrogen, but maybe it is due to cortisol?  Regardless, I’m ready for it to stop.

Bluepm - thank you for responding. I wish you weren’t experiencing this, but I’m glad to know that I’m not alone. Sometimes I feel like a hamster on a wheel. I have windows that last what seem like a short amount of time, like pinholes, compared to the waves.

I join the club! The only times I can feel close to normal happen after dinner. 

 

How do you feel when your mood is up? I feel horrible anyway, l get "optimistic" thoughts which I hate and I begin to feel a chemical feeling while my mood lifts.

My eyes will often feel very clear or dry when my mood has cycled into being overly optimistic. Someday our windows will become longer, hopefully.

Thanks for responding to this guys! I have not found the *answer* yet but I can report that my *good* hours seem to extend earlier and earlier in general. Mornings are still generally plagued by demons and hauntings of my past, but sometimes I am better by late morning or early afternoon now.

 

Something that has helped me is fairly active exercise in the morning. Everyone is different, but the classes at the YMCA seem to be helping me burn off some of that morning fog. Most days I only do 1/2 the class (about 30 minutes) but that seems to work pretty well. 

 

Hope you guys continue to progress!
