Mood swing or something else!

Is mood swings affecting your productivity and consequently your human capital? Mood swings if not properly addressed can affect your attitude toward work and the people around you.

Mood swing is a situation often neglected as it is so common that 7 out of 10 persons have experienced it before.  According to Jayne Leonard, a Mood swing is a sudden or intense change in an emotional state. This may be as a result of stress, feeling overwhelmed, etc. Sometimes, this may not be the cause of regular and constant mood swings experienced by a person. It may be as a result of Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), a common mental disorder affecting children and adults. This disorder has mood swings as its common symptoms. This is not a popular disorder because most if not all its symptoms can be seen as effects of stress, not eating healthy, pregnancy, menstruation, etc.

 According to WebMD’s publication on ADHD, Its symptoms can be very troubling to jobs or relationships of ADHD patients. Many adults don't realize they have ADHD, leaving them mystified about why their goals seem to slip out of reach. One of ADHD's symptoms is chronic lateness for work, finishing or starting tasks, important events, or any other occasion. Adults may realize that their tardiness is undermining their goals, but they just can't seem to be on time. Adults with ADHD may have trouble focusing, prioritizing, beginning and ending tasks because of distractions. WebMD’s medical personnel, Smitha Bhandari stated that ADHD patients also may have problems with self-control which can very much jeopardize their smooth relationships with their business partners, colleagues, friends, etc. Patients with ADHD tend to forget things easily.  The major cause of ADHD has not been found but it can be traceable to genes because it has been discovered that it often runs in families.

From Our Table

Truly, we are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Most people suffer because they don't know what is wrong with them. Without doubts, mood swings happen to anybody on a regular without the thought of it relating to a disorder. This disorder has caused a lot of people their jobs, clients, partners, and friends because of the symptoms that come with incompetence, inability to complete a task, etc. This alone can hamper one's ability to be globally competitive. When a person repeatedly fails to complete a task at a given time, it is highly possible to lose clients. Holding down a job or partners can be very hard for people living with ADHD as they become prone to tardiness and careless mistakes. Patients with ADHD often have trouble breaking down tasks and following directions, staying organized, and meeting up to deadlines.

Our Advice

The easiest thing to do as an ADHD patient is to see a doctor or talk to a therapist about the symptoms. This will help you as an ADHD patient to hunt down the symptoms and eventually get rid of the disorder. When you experience mood swings more often, it has become questionable, so try to see a doctor or run a test to know whether you have the disorder or not because human capital is incomplete without wellness.
