TFG1MIKE 365 – 2019 Day 27
Mood Rings and Mood Swings!
Hello all and welcome to a NEW Daily Blog series from me… TFG1Mike! The idea here is for me to write something, anything, once a day for 365 days. From January 1, 2019 to December 31, 2019. In my 27th entry, I’ll be talking about those novelty things the mood rings, as well as having mood swings. This is a continuation of my Day 6 entry. In that I talked about DEALING WITH DEPRESSION, you can find that HERE!
I wear my emotions on my sleeve. I have always had a temper, even as a kid. Granted most kids throw temper tantrums, however I think, because the path my life took, I definitely have a temper that has followed me through that path. I’m not proud of it in the least, but it’s a part of who I am. As a teenager I went through independent living classes, and anger management, and it helped, but my inner Hulk will always be there. He doesn’t always come out though, but the times that he does, it can get very scary. My anger surfaces when I’m passionate about something, when people don’t let me get a word in edgewise, or when I’m defending those who I love. Whether that be my wife, my friends, or family.
The mood swings I suffer from are pretty much one of two things… I either wanna get EVERYTHING done that I can, or I don’t want to do anything at all. This could be either real life stuff, like housework, or having to go get the mail, to online work as well. You’ll notice, if you have been following TFG1Mike .365 to this point, that as of the 16th of January, I’ve been a day behind in writing, and posting the blogs. It is usually because daily life stuff has kicked my ass, and just want to do nothing. I’ll relax for awhile, and then somewhere between 8 and 10pm CST, I’ll write something up from 30 minutes to 2 hours.
I started this daily blog this year, in order to challenge myself to write something on a daily basis. Right now I feel as if I’m failing my own challenge. YES I am writing these daily, but as I said before, I’m a day behind. My mood swings kill my drive to do anything. I’m sure there’s medication out there I could take, but honestly I’ve never felt that pills are the answer. The last thing I need in my life is to become addicted to a pill. Generally talking my ideas, thoughts, and anger out calmy with my wife… eases my mind, heart, and soul. I’ve always said (before Karen and I met), that all I need is someone to let me rant to them, and I’ll eventually curb this mood swing thing.
How about those mood rings though, I remember those being all the rage back in the day. I think I had one or two as a kid, and only one ever really worked.
Did you ever have a mood ring and did it function properly? Do you suffer from mood swings, anger, depression, or anything else? Let me know in the comments below and let’s have a discussion!!
Join me tomorrow morning January 28, 2019 as I’ll be writing about more of the stuff that’s on my mind!
“I tend to wear my emotions on my sleeve. I’ve had my share of mood swings, believe me. But it’s a powerful thing when you realize that you have dominion over your behavior and your passions.” – Matt Dillon on BrainyQuotes
