I feel like I'm crawling up slow moving land slide. I may feel like I'm moving upwards from all the struggling, but then to realize I've only slowed the descent.

Here's a more detailed explanation of how my moods generally work.

My mood is swinging up and down fairly regularly, but so very rapidly (I think?). At work, for almost all hours of the day I am incredibly energetic, happy, excited, hyper, then it slows down towards the end of the day, so I start to get sluggish. Then by the time I get home through the traffic slog I'm depressed as hell.

I sympathize with you about Seattle traffic. It's a goddamn blight. o_o

Sounds like you need to add something to your schedule to re-energize you. Do you work out? Run, anthing like that? That might be a great time for it, assuming you're past the 'Oh my god I want to die when I'm done' stage of a physical routine.

Failing that, try to think up a reward for yourself, something to hype up about as you're getting in.

Or, you could always just be less of an overachieving super-employee and try to avoid burning out, but I get the impression that would be the hardest of the three. :)

I second the question about exercise. I find that regular exercise is very important to staving off depressive states for me.

So what were your moods like before recently?

And I get the feeling the work thing is some sort of blood sugar thing as well as traffic.

I've always been this way as long as I can remember, but moreso recently.
