Many ways: There are many ways to improve mood. One excellent way is to do vigorous exercise as this raises that good hormone, adrenaline, which in turn raises endorphins, the "feel good" hormone. Lots of other ways to help as well.

Is it life that is overwhelming you? You need to figure out the above answers before you can adquately treat the problem. Talk to your doctor or a psychiatrist/psychologist or anyone in your support group.

A US doctor answeredLearn more
Yes: If you eat a lot of sweets, little protein and go long periods between eating, it is most likely hypoglycemia. Shakiness and altered mood are classic symptoms of hypoglycemia. Eating protein only for breakfast, eliminating sweets and artificial sweeteners and eating small protein snacks every 2 hours can eliminate the hypoglycemia symptoms. Hypoglycemia can be misdiagnosed as bipolar & adhd.

How difficult is treatment when both partners have mood disorders?

Dr. Robert Woods
Psychiatry 30 years experience
Possibly: Mutual support is essential in any treatment paradigm. Both partners can help each other and certainly have empathy towards each other during treatment. Will it be difficult? Maybe. There are many variables that will determine the exact answer. But both should be evaluated by a qualified individual. Your primary care or family doctor can help or direct you. Let us know how you both do.
