Mood Difficulties

At school or work, you’re surrounded by people who often joke around. You have been with them for quite some time now so whenever they throw a joke to someone or even to you, you can manage to laugh with them. You’ve been used to their behavior, so it’s not a big issue to you.

But there are days when their jokes are no longer amusing, and you find them annoying. At the back of your mind, you think that you’re probably just in a bad mood, that’s why everything is irritating to you.

However, you’ve noticed that your irritability lasts for days. You get irritated easily, without any reason – even your colleagues mentioned it to you. If you can relate to this scenario, you might be suffering from mood disorders.

What are the Signs of Mood Disorders?

Determining symptoms of mood disorders can be difficult as some behaviors may be part of your personality already. Here are some of the common symptoms of mood disorders to watch out for:

Emotional Symptoms:

  • Excessive anxiety, sadness or feelings of emptiness
  • Having low self-esteem
  • Loss of interest in activities which were pleasurable in the past
  • Suicidal thoughts and attempts

Physical Symptoms:

  • Decreased energy or fatigue
  • Frequent body complaints such as headaches and body aches
  • Loss of appetite or overeating
  • Trouble concentrating, unfocused

How are Mood Disorders Treated?

You don’t have to be upset or discouraged once you’ve determined that you’re suffering from a mood disorder. There are several methods of treatment:

Antidepressant and mood stabilizing medications: These will require a physician’s recommendation and are proven to give fast results to the sufferer. This works well when coupled up with therapy.

Psychotherapy: This is focused on changing the sufferer’s behavior by determining what triggers it. Your psychologist will implement positive mechanisms to help you improve your ability to cope. The sufferer can still become “moody” at times, but since they can cope better with the situation, they’ll know how to handle their emotions well.

Family therapy: Sessions include the family as an attempt to understand why the sufferer has developed a mood disorder and what they can do to help.
