About Mood Disorders
We all have days when we struggle with our emotions and don’t feel like ourselves, but for some of us this happens all too often.
The truth is that there are a range of different mood disorders, each specific and complex, which can make living a normal life feel near impossible at times. The key is to find the help that will allow you to manage and come to terms with how a part of your mind is working, and then take the steps which allow you to move forward.
Mood disorders are more common than you may think, and despite the potentially alarming name, help is always available. The important thing is to know when you need help with a mood disorder and to know where to go to get the help you need.
Do mood disorders go away on their own?
When you’re looking for help with a mood disorder you will read all sorts of articles and news pieces online which could give you a false idea of the situation. Mood disorders can be caused by a number of issues — from hormone imbalances to past traumas — and that means they are highly unlikely to go away by themselves. With the right help however, you can learn to manage the issues you face much more effectively and live a full and happy life.
How do you cope with mood changes?
We’re all different, and that means that on every level our minds will act differently to one another. What works for one person may make another person feel ten times worse, and vice versa. The most important thing to remember here is that professional, targeted help will be what allows you to make the incremental progress that makes all the difference.
Does counselling stop a mood disorder?
Counselling for mood issues is highly complex and specialist, making a quick diagnosis and timeframe for recovery difficult. What matters most is that you feel comfortable with the nature of the help you’re receiving, able to open up, and invested in the process.
If you recognise any of the following, you could benefit from personal mood disorder support:
- Constant changes of emotion that don’t seem to relate to the world around you
- A tendency to make rash decisions that seem to come out of nowhere
- An inability to self soothe or to recognise when you need to take a step back
- Finding that your moods make it hard to maintain strong relationships
- Feelings of inadequacy as a result of the emotional ebbing and flowing that you experience
