Hi everyone, I have been struggling a lot with my mood disorder and whenever I start feeling good my depression and anxiety comes back. I feel like I am doing everything to make myself feel better but I still feel really empty most of the time. I would love to hear from anyone who can relate in any way or if anyone wants a friendship of positivity where we can uplift each other. Sending love

    Up and down and all around. One thing that helps me is realizing with a mood disorder it changes when your up it goes down, when your down it goes up. So when I am down I try to relax knowing at some point it will go up. Why sweat it. It will change. Then when I am up I over do it. I feel good and I want to get stuff done. I don’t know how to relax so I push my self over the edge and crash. So holding back when I am up is the solution but very hard for me. I finally have good doctors but took me years. I am at this point where I remove stress. Some people just are not good to be around. I am unemployed so I am trying to change. Exercise more, I sing for fun, cook my own meals clean. I went through this acceptance phase. It is not something you can beat. Its not a battle. It is something to manage. Now I am into surrender. We will see how that goes. I switch meds a lot, either they work or they don’t. If they don’t work I don’t kid myself. I feel for you. It’s just who we are. God bless, TomSea

    I think the most difficult part for me is to accept that this is how things are going to be. every time I am down I feel like I will stay down. I don’t know how to relax either , yoga has helped me tremendously though and I recently got Into meditation . I have been on a lot of meds and I won’t get on any new ones anymore because it never actually helped me , I just felt dead all the time. Exercise is so important, I make sure to workout at least 4 days a week and do yoga almost everyday, its helped my sleep beyond. Its very true about what you mentioned on moods changing, looking back I go through these cycles all the time, when I am up I think I solved all my problems and when im down im sure ill be stuck forever. I get nervous that I will quit school because of it, I’ve quit a couple semesters in the past due to my mood swings I just have to keep this in mind and leave the past in the past, and to keep pushing myself. Thank you for your response 🙂 Sending love your way

    Do you want to go back to school ? I know the moods can really control a lot of our lives but there are ways to cope fr if u really want it. I finish my first semester of college tomorrow, after quitting 2 semesters before due to my mood swings. I’m learning to better handle it because I don’t want to have nothing on my good days.
