The past few weeks I don't know what's wrong with me but everything and everyone seems to rub me the wrong way. I have health issues, family issues and basically just life issues. No matter what I try to do I can't get in a good mood. I've looked for discussions on mylot that might make me laugh if not just smile. I lost a tooth from my dentures and can't afford to have it put back by a professional and it's cutting into my top lip! I know there is something that you can buy to fix 'broken dentures' but I can only get it by going to Walgreens or CVS and the weather is so bad and they are so far away from me. I'll have to wait until the weather gets better to go to one of them. I'm in the process of quitting smoking and I know that's part of the way I feel Have you ever been so angry at just everything around you? How do you get in a better mood?

I feel for you my friend, I live in an angry environment all the time, mainly because of my father, he's an abusive bully who sits and watches television from the moment he gets up to the moment he goes to bed, he only cares about himself, he drinks too much, eats too much and it makes me angry the way he treats my mother. I suffer with depression and find that I have to get out, when in truth I'd rather be at home but it's toxic. I go to the gym primarily to help with the depression, but working out helps reduce my anger levels. I would suggest finding an anger management course, but I tried that and it only made me WORSE, can you believe that? Find something that makes you happy, keeps you occupied even if it's going out for a walk. Two things that help my anger is working out at the gym and driving, yeah, I know it sounds weird by my anger levels drop massively when I am in my car, I guess I am in my own little bubble where no one can touch me, least of all my father. I also find the weather has a detrimental affect on my moods. For example my moods crash in the Summer months, I find it difficult dealing with the heat. I need to be cold. You could always get a cushion and thump the hell out of it, or use your anger energy on doing something worthwhile, like gardening. But I get those days where everything makes me angry, you just have to remove yourself from the situation or person. Some days are better than others. Hope I have been of a little help to you.

I too am sorry about your situation. I would never be able to deal with that. Yes, spring/summer will be here soon and things should be different for me.

I guess when I got a bout of depression, or on a pre- menstrual period or just burned out from my life as a full time mom and housewife then I easily get angry and anxious. I become more sensitive and so narrow minded. All of these I just realized after I get back myself to normal. As a relaxation or self therapy, I would cook. It makes my mind relax and it gives me time to think, breath, think, and realize that life is short and its not really wise to spend more time being miserable.

I've been cooking whole dinners for myself to get my mind of things but once that's done I'm back to my old feelings.

I think cooking is one of the best way to get rid of things of mind. Try to find good recipes from the books and internet and try different recipes. The basic thing to do is to keep yourself busy on the day when you are in bad mood.

You are just stressed out, And i understand you are feeling this way and you might also be just feeling that everything is happening all at once. i think I was in that situation before but i managed and realized that feeling or being that way drives people away, i used to get so quick to be angry, but that only worsened when people (i think) do not hear me out. It is frustrating that i a unable to do so many things. =( And that is what makes me feel that I want to be angry, because nothing gets done. However when i realize that i just had to calm down and relax a bit, I would be better and i would stop nagging or feeling angry.

The problem is that I relax too much. Every so ofen during the day I hop on my trampoline and put some good rock music on and try to 'jump' my feelings away.

when i am grumpy it is usually because i am tired so taking a nap is a good thing for me. the thing is though, i am generally tired most of the time. i try to ignore my grumpy feelings and do something nice for myself which also helps. i spend time on pintrest or i will read, that sort of thing. also, i am a generally upbeat person which also helps too. best wishes on your quitting smoking though!

I was surrounded with those feelings for a very long time. I am not feeling my best right now either because so much is going on. I am here alone right now and it is great. but,later my daughter will be here and then I will be able to laugh about some stuff and then adrain will be here who is basically not in the best mood because my daughter is back home. but,I won't let that bother me because he has his own place if her gets to the point he can't take it any longer.

Your so lucky that your daughter will be there and you can enjoy each other. I would do anything if one of my kids would visit but that's a pipe dream especially with the snowstorms that are on their way.

Sounds to me you feel tired out and you are just turning in a circle. Instead of even making yourself more angry. It's time you have a good conversation with yourself. Sit down, be honest, write down everything that is bothering you. Write down what is your biggest priority and how to solve your problems one by one and at what time. It won't rain forever but at the time it is you can make your scedule. I am sure you will feel way better as soon as you are starting to be active, to fight for yourself, be responsible for yourself, your own deeds. Wish you luck.

Thanks, I need all the luck I can get right now. I write in a journal every day and when I read todays writings I'm sure I will laugh that I was in such a bad mood for so long. I did some errands this morning but being in this mood everyone I saw looked happy and I hated them for it...lol....that's just me!

hello there my friend, anger is more like a huge house of cards resting on one single card which when pulled out collapses the whole picture, I mean there is a single thing bothering you which is making all the rest of the things look bad. Trying finding it out and get rid of it first.Or you can try alternatives like punching a pillow or building house of decks and collapsing it, but personally I would suggest play angry birds. i works as a stress buster. scientifically speaking when you are angry you produce a lot of energy, so divert it into a more useful work like gardening or yoga. Hope you get better soon. Good luck....!!!

i know why i'm feeling this way...my life! I am so bored with doing nothing everyday all day. I do little things like working on a hooked rug or jigsaw puzzles to keep my mind busy but then if i make a mistake i get even madder.

try a cross stitch or something of that sort that requires less of you mind work and start day dreaming simultaneously. May be the happy days of your past or some days of your life you want to live, happy and peaceful. try getting a kitten or a puppy, or try spending time with kids by visiting parks in the evenings. But I would personally prefer to spend time at a old age home, or a slum where you can find people in more depressing and worse situations then ours making us count our blessings. Good luck...!!!

I think it is always good to live in the present time and not to think about the past or the future. When we think about the past and future most times we get into bad mood if our thoughts are not good. I think it is good to read books or listening to music will help change mood. I would suggest you to take a walk when not in good mood.

I don't know which is worse my past or my present. Neither one of them makes me very happy.

I know exactly how you feel. When I get into my bad moods (which thankfully isn't that often) literally EVERYTHING annoys me and I just find myself think bad thoughts in my mind about that tiny, little things that's got me angry. What I like to do in those time is just spend as little time around others as possible, isolate myself to the best I can. Of course sometimes a situations doesn't allow you but if you're able to just spend all day in your room and not really make contact with others then that's fine. I just stay that way until it passes. So in the end I spend like a day or two just avoiding others and not really going out. It always works for me.

I have very little interaction with people and their lucky that I don't! It's so easy for me to blow up over a tiny thing and then they wouldn't like me.

Sometimes, I'm feeling like that, even simple things make me feel angry and I don't know why. I didn't do something to get back in a good mood, I just need some time then I will be back to my normal mood.

Hi ctryhnny, I had about four years of that anger, I felt nothing was going right. I also felt I had no direction, for me personally I know this is not for everyone but the Bible has helped me out so much words cannot describe it. Everytime I turned around there was something I felt angry towards everyone, however menopause was also a cause I had to have a complete hysterectomy, so I know that feeling of anger. I had also tried from the health food store it was all natural it is called Harmony it helped me with mood swings hot flashes etc it was the greatest. I have passed this on to many of my friends and they could not believe the difference how they felt and I stopped taking it because I felt I no longer needed it and there are no side effects as it is made with chinese herbs so you are able to take it and stop with no withdrawal's. I hope this helps some and watch some funny shows that always helps me too. Take care

oh yes, menopause is not fun to go through. Thankfully I was done with that years ago so I can't blame the way I feel on that. I'm not really into reading the bible so it wouldn't do anything for me..

I grew up with problems coming from time to time but I learned that they will just pass. As long as we live in this world we will have problems and disappointments. So just chill and find other things that will lighten up your mood,for sure there's a lot of options.

Yes,k I have been angry at the way things are going in my life, but thankfully, I live alone except for my dogs, so I end up yelling at them when they really aren't dong all that much wrong. When that happens, I just take a break from what I am doing, and just relax, and then sometimes I will come in here, and you know, that really helps me, as I find that it relaxes me. I don't like being angry, but I think it all started when my husband at the time, asked me for a divorce, and it was on Christmas Eve in 2005. I was also hurt, but very angry about it, as it was the holidays and here he didn't want me around anymore. believe me, Christmas that year was the worst one ever, and it took me awhile to even talk to the kids about it, as i didn't know how they would react. Well, the certainly didn't take it to well, but since then, our son has come around and he talks to his dad, but our daughter is still resentful of him, and will have nothing to do with him. At the time we had been married 35 years, and I never thought it would happen to me, and when it did, I was totally blindsided about the whole things. I have come to accept it though since is has been six years since the divorce, and ironically, we still talk, and we get along better now than when we were married. He does spend the holidays with me and our son and his family, so that is a good thi9ng. i just want to stay friends with him, but I know I will never get married again, as i don't mind living alone, like I used to. Take care, and have a very good day.
