    Good Mood to Bad Mood In to 60

    I'm trying to figure out if the reason I'm feeling the way I am is because I am ultra sensitive to others energies or if I am just a moody person. For instance.....Most mornings I am happy and chipper even though still drowsy, I come to work and start my day off with a smile...
