In brief: No, it is not
'happy' and 'crabby' sound like an adolescent's description of two sides of an emotional pole.
First thing that comes to mind is a psychiatric disorder known as 'bipolar disorder'. However, it typically involves extended periods of time, not 'minutes'. I don't know what exactly ur labile moods mean. It is likely genetic & not under ur control. What is clear is that u need professional help.

In brief: Normal?
It can certainly be part of the human experience, but i wouldn't want to live like that.
First start with a therapist to help you understand why this is happening. If necessary, your therapist can recommend you to a psychiatrist in your area if medications can be helpful.
