I figure most everyone has an angry mood day now and then. I know I do. Some of it is around the time I lost a son. Some of it comes from nowhere. Persistent stupid people can get me in a bad mood real quick that may last a day or two.

Funny now, but it used to be my birthday. Every year I would wake up that morning mad and stay mad all day. Was like that for many years.

O I had head injuries to from the same wreck my son was killed in head trauma is no joke.19 year old ran a red light at 65mps in a 3/4 ton and t boned us mainly hitting my sons door.. I had a Spinal fluid leak out of my ear fractured skull, concussion of course. ,Was on a walker 5 months.

Swelling in his skull is what killed my son ultimately. It ruptured/ blew out his spinal column from the pressure. I'm glad your was not as bad and your ok mostly.

I had a basal skull fracture and was in Icu 9 days. Thats would be a terrible thing to go through with your son. Lucky I had dropped off my buddy and my girlfriend before I had my wreck. It was my fault fell asleep ran into a creek went head first through the wind shield. They say when a guy fround me I was standing beside my truck that was upside-down and was saying it won't start. I didn't know my name or where I was till I got life flight and woke up in the icu. For the most part I am ok just get up set easily especially with family.

I honestly don't know how any parent could cope with the tragic loss of their child. Hard enough just trying to imagine it. Anyway, deepest condolences to you folks who are living with that pain.

Strong weather related changes, especially barometric changes can and do impact behavior in many ways. As the song goes "some days are diamonds and some days are stones"

Been about every one lately. In a spot im having trouble
climbing out of, injury and work related. But, i had my head beat in by
football long ago, for a long time, which doesnt help.
Something's not right and no one can tell ya to "work it off."
It's good if you can talk to someone, and therein lies my problem.
Cant find anyone i can identify with, without airing my stuff on
the web, which i wont do. Old school like that. Ill talk to ya bud if ya want.
Im way to angry for what i have. People don't get it.
Holler if ya want. Aint got no other people to talk to.

Sorry about your son...no experience with that. Cant imagine.

The question my wife would ask is not that I have an occasional grouchy day, but do I ever not have one?

A good reminder that no matter what, someone is having an even worse day than you. I try to remind myself of that and count my blessings but we all have bad days.

This is truth, but sometimes its hard to care about anyone else,
when its hard to care about yourself.

...and always remember, aint nobody gonna care about you
as much as you do. Dont matter what they say or how many
prayers they say they send. Gotta find it
within. I aint got there yet, but hopefully you do.

No, not really.
I wake up every morning and before my feet hit the deck, I tell myself ďtoday is a great day!Ē No matter what, even when I know things might suck or have to deal with something I donít want to deal with, I still tell myself today is a great day. I make sure Iím up every single day to watch the sunrise. If nothings planned (extremely rare) Iíll crawl my butt back in bed after watching it rise with the dogs. I believe I CONTROL MY DAY and I choose to have a great day!

My wife tells me that I used to be called that mean guy at the feed store. She finally had enough one day and told me straight out you are being a - Opened my eyes and she said that I am nicer now. Very sorry about your loss. No parent should have to outlive a child.

From a medical perspective anxiety, depression, and more is: anger turned inward.
Everyone is unique in their life story but there are helps for anger turned inward situations.

Blessings,

My thoughts and prayers are with you guys that have lost a child. I cannot imagine nor do I want to. Iím a grouchy guy this time of year and realize it. I try not to be but just am. There is a great book on being happy.ĒHappiness is A Serious ProblemĒ by Dennis Prager. The main point of the book is that itís our moral obligation to be happy and bring happiness to others. Act happy even when youíre not. I should read it once a month!!

Anyone else have days like that.

Providence I'm in the same boat as you. Lost a son myself and you have no reason to not have a bad day around the bad time. Really sad leading up to the day and anger afterwards. Been 15 years now and ain't any easier. Just get off by yourself and loved ones. Sometimes I have to stay away from everyone for the day. Grandkids help. If you don't have any I hope you do in the future. Stay busy.
