There was a time when I had no sympathy (tolerance) for people that used their "moods" to avoid things like work, confrontation, or me. We've all heard someone say, "Not now, I'm not in the mood."

I felt you should have control over something as emotionally based as moods. As I move along this road I am forced to travel, my perspective has changed.

My "moods" are taking on an increasingly physical nature. I'm not sure whether my bad days (physically) cause me to be depressed or the other way around. I just know they show up hand in hand, smiling with an evil grin, saying, "We are going to humble you today."



  1. One of the most difficult things for me to accept now is the fact that there are times I don't seem to be able to 'control' my emotions. When those times seem to overwhelm me and those around me, my cousin says, "This is a corticobasal moment." It helps me realize my perspective is temporarily skewed.

  2. Hey CW... maybe God is giving you a little insight into being a woman... a MOM... a WIFE! He does have a sense of humor, you know?!

    Happy Mother's Day this weekend you sweet thang you! :)

  3. I have a sign on my office door that says "You are in charge of your mood."
    Yay for you!

  4. Cathy Sue,
    When I'm having one of those somewhat irrationally emotional moments I've found it's good to physically change my position. It's a tip a stroke victim told me. It works too.

    Then God has a sick sense of humor. :-)

    I WAS in charge of my moods.
