Is it healthy to have moods go up and down with such unpredictability? Maybe it's just the way people are. Maybe I'm more normal than I give myself credit for.
Music helps. One of the greatest gifts that God has given me is a love and appreciation for music that is so strong, I can actually physically FEEL it. The right song can lift me outside of myself, take me out of all the crap, and give me a feeling of power and rightness that I cannot achieve in any other way.
Dolls help. It is extremely satisfying to look at a doll and know his or her name, story, and personality.
And more than anything, faith helps. When all else fails, I know God is watching and has a plan. I just need to listen so He can share it with me.
