    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Varying moods during the day?
    RandallB80 posted:
    Can anyone tell me why I have varying moods throughout my day?
    Mornings aren't real bad, if I actually get up and get going. Afternoons sometimes seem endless until I eat, then mood increases (to good) and then evening seem like there has never been anything wrong with me in my life.
    HOWEVER ... I still can't get motivated to get up most days and I am a terrible parent to my children (because I can't get going).

    I think the ups and downs are all part of having depression. Is that what your diagnosis is? I feel the same way alot. I will be fine for parts of the day and other parts I will be a horrible mess. Motivation is also a problem for me. I have no motivation to do anything.
    Thomas L Schwartz, MD responded:
    could be a depression. take a checklist on webMD somewhere and consider asking your doctor. you could also have something called hypersomnia- fancy word for too tired in the morning- this can be caused by depression, sleep apnea, thyroid problems...also can just happen. We do have medication treatments for these too. see your doc!
