    I'm not sure why I get mood swings

    but it seems like everyday there are numerous ups and downs. I think they might be attributable to my digestion and various allergies and intolerances

    I can't explain why it happens.

    Sometimes I just get upset or angry for no reason. I can't control it and I can't prevent it. I don't know what's wrong with me or what my problem is. But whatever. Who ******* cares.
