Eyes and lips in various emotional states like laughing and crying.

Mood Swings

Mood swings with MS can come out of nowhere! The smallest inconvenience can cause a huge wave of emotions, as Brooke illustrates in her comic below. She tells the story of going to get lunch and finding out they don’t have what she wanted. Depending on the day, her response could range from anger to hysterical laughing to being down in the dumps – you just never know!

    Legsonstrike,
    mood swings are definitely an unpleasant and difficult challenge to say the very least. Here is an article that Devin wrote awhile ago that is very enlightening that I hope will be of help to you!

    Thank you for writing this article, it has been so hard to explain these mood swings and I’m about to lose anyone in my life because of it! What do you do about your mood swings,?

    Brooke,
    thank you for another easily understood insightful look into m.s.
    I appreciate these because for me, words with pictures work really well.
    The crying part would be of all of them, probably the reaction I would have. Especially if the room was bright and noisy with lots of people milling about!
    It is especially foreign to me because before m.s. I was not one to cry.
    Thanks for bringing to light as only you can in your illustrations, the fact that in times like these, we are most definitely not alone!
