I've seen multiple doctors in the hopes of getting relief from debilitating mood swings that developed after a bad year. Could it be hormone imbalance due to childbearing? Adrenal burnout from career struggles? Depression? All blood work comes back normal. And I don't feel depressed. I feel angry. Burning one pancake can leave my body shaking with rage and my head laughing at the absurdity.

After much research, I decided to try DHEA for its mood stabilizing properties. I am so happy I did! I feel released from my temper. I still get annoyed, but only when things are justifiably annoying. My reactions are on scale with the stimulation. I'm able to go out without fear of getting blinded by bizarre levels of emotion.

After several months, I went on a vacation from the pills and on day 5 my temper and several other symptoms returned, extra minor symptoms that are absent with DHEA: unusually susceptibility to caffeine, disturbed sleep cycle, irritating dreams, inability to multitask or move through a plan efficiently, lowered libido.
