Moodtracker.com Mood Charts Posted

As you can see, I've just posted my past three months' mood charts from moodtracker.com. You can tell from the green lines that my sleep patterns fluctuate from day to day based on whether I am tired or not. My mood is charted by the purple bars. The yellow and cyan marks indicate when I am experiencing anxiety and/or irritability. The goal of this program is to find patterns within one's moods so that one can plan accordingly. I can't figure these charts out. I seem to be like a bouncing ball all over the place. Can anyone figure these charts out?

i have been tracking too, and wiht me at least, it seems that on day one, if i sleep lots, 2 days later, my mood will plumet, but it also goes in waves liek yours does. then again, perhaps you are just normal and not in need of meds unlike I.

I find mood changes both facinating and unnerving. I find myself reacting differently to the same exact situation on different days. It's almost too deterministic for me. At times I feel that I should stop analyzing my moods because I strongly believe that people are ultimately responsible for their own actions and I don't want to give myself excuses for doing the wrong thing.

I don't know where I'm going with all this. I just felt like sharing my thoughts.

I agree. Because someone has a problem does not excuse their acting out or wronging other people. When I feel a bad or dark mood coming on, I isolate myself until the storm subsides. There is no excuse to hurt others because one cannot control their mood.
