It seems okay for a little moodiness... its normal. But sometimes, moodiness really drives the other person crazy! I feel like a light switch... trying to catch HIS mood for the "moment" -- Sometimes we never meet.... Like when he's been moody for days, I try and just keep my distance... then all of a sudden, he tells me " Whats your problem, why are you so quiet??"
WHAAAAT??!!! I'm sorry but I cannot turn my own moods of back and forth within minutes.... I feel like I am being driven mad! I don't knwo where to place myself, do I ignore it, so I say something?
I'm not really fond of moody people and tend to avoid them. I guess everyone is a little moody now and then. But I have known too many moody people who made no effort to control their moodiness and expect people around them to accommodate whatever mood they happen to be in at the moment. Ugh, no thanks. . .
Can I just say, that after heated texting with my husband this morning about his foul mood swings, he just now texts me and say... " Will I give him a hug when I get home...? "
This is what I mean! Like a light switch! ON and OFF, ON and OFF!!!
My goodness!!!! Aaaargh!
Any chance your H is ADHD? My H is like that... It had to be pointed out to him in our MC that it was not normal to be very pissed off or angry one minute and perfectly fine the next. But attributing to ADHD explains the behavior of my H and once our MC gently pointed it out to him, he at leasts understands that it takes me longer to flip the switch if you will...

Explain what you mean by 'moody.' One mans fish is another man's flesh.
I sometimes wake up in the morning and can't stop singing. This annoys some of my children. But other days when I'm grumpy they say they prefer me that way as it is 'more normal.'
I agree, perhaps you could give us some examples. Some people might call my stbx as 'moody'. But after all these years of marriage I call him an uncaring, unfeeling, narcissistic. self centered control freak.
I'm the moody one to. I tend to get periods of feeling like a black cloud is following me around. Where I'll get down and pessimistic about almost everything when I know there's no good reason for it. I never act on those feelings, when it happens it just kind of cast a negative shade over how I see the world. Fortunately most of the time I recognize it and talk myself out of it in a day or two. I've never been diagnosed but I've always believed it to be a form of mild depression.
My wife on the other hand is perpetually positive, optimistic, and happy; which given some of the things that have happened in her life is amazing. My moodiness gets on her nerves to, but she accepts it and knows that it's not "me" and can just brush it off most of the time. Like you the sudden swing from gloomy to happy go lucky in me throws her for a loop sometimes.
